Money Problems

A 7-post collection


Sometime last week, I actually contributed to a fanfic. And that means that my $5 Patrons would be treated to a new WIP. If I had any $5 Patrons.

But I'm still putting it up because having stuff for my Patrons is important.

I've begun work on Shot #8 for SESP, and I might just have time to animate some of it all, this weekend. Powers know I've been more than a little slack about that. I have features and shots to upload, and then wrangle.

I'll be posting an update video [minus sound] once that's done. Because Quintessential's music is still on the do not use list. I highly encourage you to buy a copy of Quintessential because the music is firkin awesome.

And speaking of firkin awesome artists, I have recently found Alice's Night Circus. She does soaring melody, actually sings, and has a circus-esque theme to her music... so of course I fell for her like a sucker, but not as hard as I fell for Steam Powered Giraffe. I still obtained four out of her five extant songs. And can't get the complete set because saving for a new compy.

Scraping together enough to keep my 'career' going is a pain in the firkin arse.

If you'd like to contribute, you can sign on as a Patron, or buy my books, if you'd love to throw some money at me via PayPal, then my PayPal address is "nutty @ internutter (dot) org" - and you should know how to decode that into a valid email.

Bot protection kind'a sucks too.

I'm aiming to get the money without wrecking my emergency account. But if my compy dies tomorrow, I might have to.

Funds update on the weekend.

Slothful Saturday (and Sunday)

I take my leisure time seriously. As in, I don't intend to do very much that's productive. Or do very much at all.

Because I've firkin earned it because all the running around during the week.

I feel I've been pushing myself a little hard, lately. And since my single and only sponsor on Patreon has downgraded their pledge... I don't really know if that effort is worth it.

I mean, I haven't had the time to do hobby-writing of late. Maybe

Nothing to see here

It's hard to be entertaining when there's nothing to bitch about. Things are kind of okay.

I finally chatted with the counsellor people and got some useful advice to going forward with the whole mental care thing. As a result of having all that stress no longer important, my current energy levels are low.

Discoveries this week: Food is expensive. Especially the stuff that only diabetics are allowed to eat. Especially the recommended fish like salmon and tuna. We need to learn

Mayhem's sick enough to throw up. Chaos has a persistent cough. I have a lingering, gluey sensation in the back of my throat that means more firkin bronchial casts are destined to make my life hellish.

Ah, winter. Where are these alleged charms that people keep honking about?

My plns for a Kigurumi are on hold. Unless I want to go to the local shops and choose from their alleged range. Which is something that will happen towards the end of NEXT

Juggling Life

I had a bit of a row with Beloved about money again. Domestic arguments always seem to start with income and inlaws. But this time, it included outgoing moneys as well.

I'm a frugal little bean and I try not to have extravagant expenditure. I try to get as much as I can out of as little as possible, and going over that allotment makes me sad, angry, and bitter. Especially when I've done my best scrimping, only to find that Beloved

Where has all the money gone?

I discussed money issues with Beloved in the evening. As it turns out, most of the expenses were directly related to bills and paying off debts.

We're relatively debt free, right now. But we're also money poor.

And Christmas is going to be hellishly expensive, even with my frugality in the balance. For example: Beloved suggested using actual sealing wax for the gift basket stuff. Two of the lovely bottle types have corks, and they're going to need a functional seal.
