So @funkyhunkygrunklestans and I are planning on moving in together into our first apartment, in the Portland, Oregon area in the summer. One problem tho: I’m currently residing in Iowa. And traveling over 1,500 miles/ 26 hour drive with only a bedroom worth of stuff, and a cat, I’m gonna need some help.
With this move, I would be in a better place, surrounded by supportive friends and I would no longer have to feel shitty due to my family’s toxic nature. Plus I would have a better job opportunity than what’s here in Iowa.
So here’s the nitty-gritty:
To cover everything ( Gas, Food on the trip, hotel, etc) is going to cost about
$3,500 to $4500
The reason for the prices is because if I ship my stuff instead of getting a uhaul trailer, and getting a hitch installed unless i get a vehicle with a hitch, its going to cost more. But I feel like it would be safer than just adding a hitch and then having it fall off during the trip (this is only a fear but still).
Right now I have a some money but that’s going towards buying a cheap car. And then once I get the car, any of my paychecks I get from nowish to June will be going towards this move.
Starting next week I’m going to be holding commission art streams everyday. And during the time I don’t have commissions, I’ll be drawing whatever. The time I want to do streams are between 12 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 9 pm (these hours might change due to scheduling but I’ll make a post about it/tweet about it if it does happen)
Another option is donations. And to make it a little fun, no matter how much is donated, I’ll draw a little doodle with your username (unless its anonymous) and have it on a “wall of fame” type of deal”. However if you donate a lot (as in over $80) Let me draw you something more than just a doodle.
To donate, send the amount youre going to donate to my paypal which is firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, if you want, if you want to help us have some essential stuff for our soon to be apartment, you can check out this nifty Apartment wishlist. Its has things we need like a crockpot, towels, strainers, lights, bookshelf etc.
If you can help me out with moving, and help us out with setting up, that would be super great ;w;
3/10 EDIT: I’VE ADDED A PAGE TO SEE WHAT PRICES IN DETAIL, AS WELL LOWER THE GOAL AMOUNT FOR NOW.
My cousins took me to the loveliest café I’ve ever seen for my birthday.
Aoyama Flower Market Tea House in Harajuku — every 2nd Wednesday of each month, they gift each customer with two stems of the weekly flower. Today was sweet pea. My best friend and I are absolutely going back next month. (ig: cliones)
