my rent

Ok so I just sent in my project proposal for a big grant to do research this summer, but I just realized that I might need to switch around a whole leg of it (thank god I’ve heard that they don’t check receipts). Basically, while in my proposal I suggest traveling to St. Petersburg for a week to use their library, that will not really be that important versus going somewhere I know where I can get access to primary sources. And you know where has those? Its in the US, I hate it with every fiber of my being, and its crazy expensive. Yep, San Fran and Berkeley both have repositories of valuable stuff, I just confirmed. So uh, @5jahre, wanna host me for a week or two this summer? It would be cheaper for me to stay with you and rent a car (since I’ll be 25 by then) then it would be to try and rent my own spot on airbnb closer to the action.


My sweet babes, I’ve been receiving some fic requests in my ask box recently, and I’m sorry to tell you that I’m not currently offering fic requests, only commissions.

This is due to time restrictions; I do writing as my main job at the moment and unfortunately I don’t have the hours in the day to take on all your lovely fic ideas, no matter how I’d love to! I also have to be able to pay my rent and get Randy, my cat, his daily tuna - thus commissions must take priority.

In the same breath, I’m just taking a few days to finish a couple of jobs, after which I’ll be back on the next chapter of AMONC. Thank you all so much for your support, interest and thirst for the hobodaddy! 💖

I’m always happy to chat or write out headcanons in my spare time, just be aware that I may not have a chance to pick up all of them, but I try!

  • What I say: I love musicals!
  • What I mean: I've seen the same 5 musicals at least 20 times each. I want to watch other musicals because they all look so good but I always end up watching a different production of the same 5 musicals I've already seen. A musical marathon for me is watching the same musical on repeat for 10 hours. Help.

“Last December my wife lost her job, and now we’re struggling to get to the end of every month. Around the 20th, we always realize there’s no money left. Half of my paycheck goes to rent. And we’re still in debt from our wedding. We can’t afford to go out anymore. Our diets have changed. Now it seems like money is all we talk about: what bills to pay, what to keep, what to leave out. She thinks I spend on the wrong things. I think she spends on the wrong things. So we end up arguing. But I have faith we will pass this test. Both of us came from difficult backgrounds. She was adopted. My mother abandoned me when I was young. We both know what it means to struggle, and that’s why we chose to be together. I came to this city from a small town because I was looking for happiness. And I found my happiness in her. So we’re going to figure this out.”
