thanks-dad-for-helping-me-get-it-working

My last 4 sketchbooks are now on Gumroad!

100+ Pages of my latest doodles and doo-dads, including but not limited to: drawings, comics, notes from CalArts classes/lectures, work-in-progresses, figure drawings, and the essence of love itself! And all in high-resolution so you can zoom in like the nerds you are. <3

This PDF is available for pay-what-you-can, so if you don’t have any extra cash you can still download it. You’re welcome! However, any money you do spend will help me out with recent medical expenses and getting myself through school.

Thanks again for liking my work, everyone! I’d appreciate it if you spread the word. Have a good day!

Help make my only dream come true

I am a young lady with autism who has worked very hard to go to a Paul McCartney concert this summer. I saved up my hard earned money do me and my dad can go together. We are both really big fans of Paul and The Beatles. I have Asperger Syndrome and I don’t really go out much. Paul has helped me get through so much and I probably wouldn’t be here right now without his music and The Beatles. I got tickets for the August 7th concert and I was wondering if you can all help me make my dreams come true. My dream is to meet Paul and I would love to have my tickets upgraded to VIP. It would mean so much to me and my amazing dad who will be taking me. All I ask of you is to signal boost this in any way possible. Reblog this and most importantly send this to The Ellen Show. Thank you everyone for taking the time to help me out. I can’t wait to have a great time and maybe an even better time because of all of you wonderful people! Ellen is so amazing and she is also a big inspiration for me. Her show lifts me up when I am feeling down. Please help me and my dad out Ellen, it would be greatly appreciated! We got floor seats in the back but we need to be closer to meeting our idol. ❤️️Send this to Ellen’s Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram or website. Thanks again and I have worked really really hard for this and I am super blessed for all the talented and awesome people in this world!

“First off, thank you to all the Produce 101 staff that made this show. Mom thank you for supporting me from the beginning when nobody was on my side, Dad, I’m happy you support me. And my little brother Yoonsu, by the time you go to the army I’ll become a sister you can be proud of. Thank you to all the trainers and Representative Jang for helping me get all the way here. Thank you to all the producers and my penguin family for supporting me. I’ll work hard so please anticipate!”

Terry Pratchett’s books have been, along with J K Rowling’s, the ones that I have most often and consistently reread since my early teens. I have so much admiration for his work, and his courage and campaigning these last few years. During hard times the Discworld audiobooks helped me, and my sister, too, to ease our churning minds and get some rest, though sometimes they made us laugh too much to fall asleep. 

Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, Sam Vimes, Carrot and Angua, Tiffany Aching, Gaspode - there are too many beloved characters to name. Thank you Terry Pratchett for giving me so many friends and heroes, and in the sadness of your passing, those last brilliant tweets. What a legend.

I have been avoiding making a post like this for a long time now, but I really need your help.

About a year ago I moved home from school because I was on the verge of suicide and felt that I couldn’t handle my college environment anymore. I had hoped that moving home would help get my severe anxiety and depression under control, and while I have gotten a hold of medication to help it hasn’t worked out that well. 

My dad is constantly causing me to have panic attacks and I really can’t mentally stand to be around him very much anymore. For the past few months I have been living couch to couch thanks to my friends but I really need to get my life together.

I’m trying to move out and I have a job interview soon but I haven’t had any luck with other jobs so I still need any help I can get. I’m still having trouble learning how to drive because of my dad and my anxiety and I have no work experience because I have been in school fighting depression up until now. 

Please please PLEASE anything helps I’m really trying to get a start in life and I’m just having the absolute worst time like at this point I feel like such a waste of life and I really need to make a change.

If you’re willing please donate here (my email is sus i’m sorry i just made it for paypal)

And I have made some t-shirt designs through a fundraiser program if you want to support me there too! x x x

Thank you so so much for listening and if you could spread the word thank you.

hi everyone~ I’m still here, kicking it… I’m going through some serious depression and anxiety right now and I can’t even like…function on my own at this point. I constantly have to be with someone or else everything just gets really bad for me. it’s the same when I’m not active doing anything. I just get so bad I don’t even know what’s wrong with me at this point. I’m freaking out at the thought of my mom going back to work next week and me being alone again, but thankfully I have an aunt who is a stay-at-home mom, so if I need to, I can stay with her.

my mom and I ended up talking more the other night, after I made that last text post. she’s doing her best to understand and help me, which I’m so thankful for. my dad is also helping me, as well as my grandparents, who are going to help me pay for therapist appointments.

this seems like something way more than depression. I have to have some disorders that I don’t even know about. I feel like I’m losing my mind. >.< I have an emergency psychiatrist appointment on monday and it seriously can’t come soon enough. every single minute of every day is such a struggle for me to get through. I seriously can’t thank you all enough for the support and amazingly kind messages. they’re really helping, even if just for the moment I’m reading them. the distraction and love definitely helps.

I also just wanted to warn you guys about 5-HTP. it’s a mood health supplement. I took the recommended dose yesterday and had a REALLY bad reaction to it. it made my depression and anxiety 10x worse and I became sick to my stomach and was very shaky. it was really scary to have my depression intensified like that…it made my usual depression seem like heaven. >.< it’s definitely not for everyone and I learned that first hand.

I’m going to continue blogging though, when I can manage. thank you all again, so so so much. <333 and if anyone has any stories or advice or anything they want to share, my inbox is always open and I’m always super appreciative!

mentally ill trans teen in need of donations

hi guys !!

so im kind of in a tight spot for a few reasons.

for one, the couple of chest binders ive owned since 8th grade (im a high school senior now) are finally seeing their last days…. all but one have completely worn out. and the only SAFE binders on the market tend to be between $30-$60.

unfortunately i also need to pay for things to help with my anxiety and sensory issues (fidget toys, a medical ID band for emergencies, etc)

the problem is, my family’s income is very low (dad unemployed, mom working part time in food service).

you absolutely dont have to, but it would mean the world if you considered dropping by the ‘DONATE’ button on my blog. every dollar i get counts, and it all goes towards making things safer for me until i’m able to work.

thank you so much!!

Get Kallie to Stanford!
Hi! I am Kallie and I am sixteen years old. I was recently chosen to do an intensive law and trial program at Stanford Law School! Law is what I have wanted to do since I was in eighth grade, so this was a huge deal for me. Sadly, the cost of the program is $3,489 dollars, this is a lot of money...

Hello! If you all could be please read this that would be wonderful :) 

I have recently been chosen to participate in intensive law and trial at Stanford Law School. I have dreamed of being a lawyer since I was in eighth grade, and this opportunity would allow me to broaden my horizens on the subject and practice. The cost of this, however, is too much for my family at the moment. My mom, dad, and I all have jobs, and I work as much as any 16 year old with extracurricular activities can, but it is still too much for us to think about putting towards at the moment. This would increase my chances into getting into the college I wish to attend and overall help me reach my dream of becoming a lawyer. Every penny counts and will be put towards the funds for me to attend this opportunity. 

If you can’t donate, could you please reblog or repost the link to this? Thank you so much!

I work in retail to support my daily needs and also at a nutrition company making their videos and i’m putting most of that towards surgery I have also been designing and printing shirts for future sale to raise for top surgery as well. i would forever appreciate it if you could donate to help me reach my goal. thank you so much everyone.

About a very important person in my life.

So today is my dad’s 50'th birthday, and I wanted to take a second to say a few words about him.

He has been not only my inspiration, but without him and my mother paired together, I wouldn’t be anything like the person I am today.
I remember when they helped me get to my first convention, back in 2007. They got me a one-day pass, and the 20 minute drive to the Long Beach convention center seemed to far! :’)

I loved building massive Halloween displays, and working on programming audio. It really seemed to bring us closer, and built a mutual respect between us that I will forever value. He would also go out of his way to make sure he would go to my shows, when my band is playing. He even drove to a little show I played in the backlot of my high school back in the day. I played punk music back then (angry teenager. rawr!), and I knew it wasn’t his cup of tea. But being able to see that he was proud of me, playing for an audience (however few in number they may be) was all the validation and more than I could want.

But above all, he taught me to follow my dreams and aspirations. He is the most supportive individual in my life, working extremely hard so that his six children can go to college for whatever path they choose for themselves. I remember when I had a booking issue trying to get to Rocky Mountain Fur Con, and I called him on the phone in a panic; he didn’t hesitate to take his valuable time to help me resolve the issue. I’m grateful that he and my mother helped Oli and me just so we could go away for the weekend, and have fun meeting all of you lovely people. <3

He also taught me to be myself. No matter what. He was okay with me dressing up in silly outfits on the weekends, escalating to having a tail wherever I may go, and now fursuiting at every opportunity I get. With my blogging stuff, he’s been helping me brainstorm new creative ideas, and coming up with exciting new avenues that I can contribute to the fandom world.

So I just wanted to thank you, dad. For supporting me, and my tendency to dress up like a big fluffy animal for the entertainment of strangers. Happy birthday, you mad scientist. <3
