|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!|
After a year long hiatus after having lost my home due to being unable to pay the rent, I can now say that I am finally at my new home! After so many months of searching for work, after so many months of moving from state to state in varying conditions… I am finally home! It’s been such a hard and difficult journey but thanks to the kindness of old friends and strangers alike, it was finally able to happen! In my journey, I was able to meet up with some new faces and even call them friends. As for the old, I especially want to thank the most.
While we had finally made it out of the streets, I can say that after everything.. I am grateful. While we are home now, we aren’t exactly called out of the woods entirely yet. But then again, is anyone out of the woods? You see, while my mother and I are both working, it’s BARELY enough to make ends meet. But we’re managing just fine, and we now can have access to the internet once more in order to do what needs to be done– look for better paying jobs so that we can ensure that we will not be out in the street again.
After having lost everything before, I made a promise.
I promised to ensure that something like losing my home will NEVER happen again. The cost of living is just too damn high, and so is overall rent.. not one person can do this alone anymore, it now requires two or three people. Thankfully my job at Toys R Us is providing me work and pay in order to cover expenses where my Mom can’t cover. Mind you of course there have to be sacrifices.
For one, due to the layout of the apartment, we were supposed to have two cable boxes but because of the fact that the cable would have to be wrapped all around the apartment… literally, we opted to have just one television with the channels provided. So therefore, I am living in the living room, with my TV hooked up to the PS3 with no cable. Mom’s got the television with cable. But this means we pay less, so there is a plus there.
Time will also be a factor in this. Because of the fact I have to support my family, and therefore have a job– I will not be on as often. Depending on my days off, and the time I have between will be a factor as well. No more late nights, unless they are on a day off.There is so much I have to catch up! So much to do!
