Why, in this beautiful vast nation, teeming with life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, is it so difficult to maintain one's own simple livelihood? I really don't understand it. I'm a kind man, I'm honest, excellent with the public, learn quickly and intuitively, and work as diligently as possible... Why then is it so hard to find a job that pays enough to live on? But every day, I wake up and go to work with a smile, even though I can see my life slowly draining away, and money trickles through my fingers and bills pile up even higher. I don't eat out, (I barely eat at all), I don't drink or go do anything much at all. I can't afford it. And still, I find myself on the verge of losing everything.
I'm ashamed of myself, and very disappointed in my inability to find another way. But I'd like to send out an ask for donations. I've not contributed much to the fandom in a while. I've become a lurker since I've devoted so much of my time to working/finding work this past year +. But if I can't raise $700-800 asap for the car payments I'm months behind on, then I lose my car, my jobs, my apartment, and any chance of turning things around anytime soon. Please, I'm asking family and friends too, if there's absolutely anything you can do, you'd have my immeasurable gratitude. I'll even dig out and dust off my old tablet and start coloring linearts again for donations, if anyone wants. It's been awhile, but I've had a few art lessons since my old days as munashi, and I'll do my best to make your pictures come to life.
I also just want to publicly say how much I appreciate the fandom. You furries accepted me for who I was, no questions, as a teenager. You've supported me and befriended me, and I don't know where I'd be without you. The nuts, the perverts, the sweethearts and even the trolls; I f***ing love you all and wouldn't have you any other way. Thank you for always being there for me when I needed you, and ahead of time for anything you can do now. Even signal boosting would be really appreciated.
If anyone would like to donate, feel free to comment/note me and I'll note you one of my two paypal addresses. (Since there's a $500 limit per address without fees, and I don't know how much of a response this will get.)
Thank you all for your inspiration, and as soon as things start picking up at work you can be sure I'll start getting more active here again.
