A lot of DeviantArt members are now using DA's point systems for a lot of things such as purchasing memberships, icons, and recently even as a means of acquiring commissions. As such, I figured that I might as well acquire some points to either renew my membership or use for commissions! Donations would be appreciated!

I have been dealing with a lot of anger and frustration within the last few months, and I can say thankfully-- the Christmas season is over but already 2016 is starting off very badly for me-- and that's not counting losing the things which I loved being a part of for more than over twenty two years. I am very frustrated at the fact that while I am indeed helping my mother recover from homelessness thanks to my job at Toys R Us, my hours have been cut severely because January is a very slow month for the store, and probably February too-- so I won't be seeing a pick up in hours until March.

The thing is I need the money that I am working for right now because I need to help pay for the cable and internet bill, and I also have to help pay for groceries as well. Groceries is obvious an expensive thing because we're eating for two people, and even shopping at Walmart for meals is worth somewhere in the triple digits. Probably 100 - 130 dollars considering what we need to get and how much it's worth. So not only is food pretty scarce, I'm not making the money in time and the needed amount to pay for these necessities.

Also work related is the fact that the blizzard we've experienced up here was MONSTROUS... As it turned out, I was supposed to be at work today from 10:00 to 4:00 PM. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go do it because of the fact that I was completely snowed in. The apartment complex layout is a really bad one and there is no assigned parking, so there is no way I can get out to work without shoveling the entire parking lot to get to the roads. There was no way I was ever at all going to be getting to work on time, or at all whatsoever. I had to call in and tell them that I was just unable to.. because of weather conditions which are completely out of my control. If I have any chance of going to work-- I have to go shovel the parking lot and the spaces between the cars belonging to the other tenants.

Not fun...

And... this is difficult to talk about. So far the year is looking like it's going to be a rough one... Three days ago, my mother came home from work very early and she was extremely upset. I had assumed that she had gotten sick and was going to be spending the rest of the day at home. I had asked her if she was fine, and she wasn't... So I had to ask her what was wrong and what I had heard had completely shocked me.

My grandmother is dying.

That's not the part which completely shocks me, because my grandmother is very old.. She's 84 years old, and while I can understand that her dying has my Mom upset, I accepted long ago that she was close to her final stop. But what did shock me was what she is in fact dying from. As it turns out... my grandmother is dying from cancer. This is the second relative of mine who had been claimed by cancer, and the first one to die from it was my grandfather-- though he had gotten his cancer from working around tar as a construction worker for many years, and the smoking didn't help either. My grandfather died in 1999 from lung cancer, which ultimately had spread to his brain.. and he died in his sleep.

My grandmother doesn't have lung cancer. She doesn't smoke either.

My grandmother is dying from ovarian cancer. The doctors diagnosed that, and we think that this was something that should have been detected and prevented a long time ago back when she was in Philadelphia. But I guess the doctors in Philadelphia really didn't care about that and merely were treating her for the money..

So now.. I might have to miss a week of work because my mother wants to go to Florida to say her final goodbyes to my grandmother. I completely understand and I want my mother to make her peace with her own mother. Everyone should make their peace and say their final goodbyes to someone they care about, right?

Well... I'm very frustrated and very angry that so much is happening within the first month of the year. Already it looks like that 2016 is going to suck. And it's going to suck really, really hard.
