Since I'm a fan of good and bad news combined into something easier to swallow, here's the good news;
I was blown away by the reception everyone had for Boys Will be Boys. Two weeks and it's already nearing 2000 views (Between Sofurry and Inkbunny). Holy crap! So, thanks to everyone who read it and enjoyed it!
Now for the bad news!
As you all know, I'm a student scuttling my way through life. I was lucky because my grandfather gave me a 2004 Dodge Stratus to drive. YAY!
Here's where the bad news kicked in. While I was driving the front left tire came OFF. While I was driving, mind you. Not fast, thank whatever deity gives a shit about me, but fast enough to piss me off. So, yeah, ripped off at the lower ball joint, tore out the transmission and a mess of other stuff. Now, I'm no mechanic (quite the contrary, this is the third car I've had that broke on me), but I think the technical term for this situation is "Fucked sideways".
So, I can't get a job to get money to fix my car because I'm too far away to bike to a workplace (a couple POSSIBLE jobs required me to drive around ,so that shot those out of the water), and I can't fix my car because I have no money. I can't even afford to go to class during the summer because of that heap of slag.
Oh, and repairing it all would probably cost anywhere from $1,800 to 3k. The car's worth maybe a thousand. Pfft. Thanks a lot blue book. So, I'm gonna have to junk my only mode of transportation and sell what I can for scrap, hopefully I can get a enough money to get a scooter or something. Or hell, at least pay rent. And eat.
I'd say "fuck my life" but I don't have it nearly as bad as millions of people in poverty stricken countries, but goddamn my life likes to dump a lot of crap on my shoulders at once.
