A Creepy Offer

As some of you remember, I put up a YouCaring fundraiser recently and started sharing it around, mostly on Facebook and Tumblr. I don't have many people on my FL or many followers, but I'm still optimistic enough people will see it and help me out soon.

I did...surprisingly, get an offer from someone who is considering paying off the whole thing, but I'm extremely wary about accepting that offer. You see, it's coming from a guy that my partner kind of knows - someone who used to date his sister a long time ago and actually helped us out financially a while back. But this guy was kind of weird and seemed to think his charity came with certain conditions. Conditions like priority access to my partner's free time and assistance with guitar playing stuff - things my partner didn't have an ample amount of. He was also under the impression that he was now best friends with my partner, who became very uncomfortable with that notion and actually ended up blocking him o…

Shall I call this a flat tire or...?

I've been in correspondence with the school I'm trying to apply at, and according to them, even if I applied as a Freshman student, they would still require my transcripts from my previous college. State regulations and all that, their hands are kind of tied and I understand that. But it puts me in a real bind, because even though I'm reaching out to my former university and trying to get more information from them about the money I owe, they're not responding. So I'm stressed. So I'm anxious. And I've been crying a bit....because it feels really hopeless.

Someone suggested crowdfunding to me, and while I have a GoFundMe page, I have recently come to find out that not only do they take a ridiculous percentage off each donation they're also quite racist and bigoted...so I've ceased using them and actually made a YouCaring fundraiser centered specifically around my college dilemma.

Hitting Potholes

How about the good news first, eh?


New banner and new background image for my Storenvy site! Definitely sticking to my shop's theme but a lot brighter, more summery, and definitely more lively for the page - check it out HERE

I've been working on a few more handmade items to toss on there, but hit a snag when I ran out of elastic thread. So I need to find time to nab some more before I can finish that stuff up.

Now for the not-so-good news:

I can't remember if I mentioned it here that I am applying as a transfer student for Evergreen State College in Washington, but I FINALLY got my application completed and went to request a transcript from my old college. Turns out, I still owe them some money so they put a financial hold on my account. This means they either can't (or more likely, won't) release my transcripts to another school until I pay them off in full.

I owe over $900 to my former college. I don't have $900 to pay them. In short, I'm pretty fucked.
