Hey there, dA. I know it's been a while. I've been hella busy with school and other things, but I've recently hit a road block. A very big road block. A road block that looks like $560.
So, I just found out earlier today that one of my scholarships may not be going through until after my tuition payment is due. This means that until the scholarship actually processes, I have to foot the bill on my tuition, meaning I have over $2000 to come up as soon as possible.
Thankfully, I can enroll into a payment plan, which will cut down the bill to be paid over the semester, and that will allow me to cover the other payments with the above mentioned scholarship once it processes. However, enrolling is $35, and on top of that, I’d still need to be coming up with over $560. Technically, the due date was the 15th, but I won't lose my classes until the 5th of January, so that's kind of become the new due date. I still need it as soon as possible, though, as residence life seems to be threatening me with kicking me out of my dorm.
What does this mean for me? Well, if I can’t come up with this money before they drop my classes, I have to go back home. And going back home for me is… Not something I want to be doing. I have a bit of a bad home life, and college is my only escape. Losing my classes means I lose pretty much all of my freedom.
I’m getting desperate here, and I need help urgently. This money stress is not helping me, especially piled on top of my finals and school projects.
So, here’s where you come in, dear reader. I just set up a store on storenvy. I make stickers, and have been selling them for a couple of years now, but I’m finally reaching out to start selling them online. You can get a set of 5 for $5 +shipping, but there are a couple sets with more stickers in them (I have an avengers set of 8 for $8). I also do sticker commissions, which are $20 for a set of 5 designs. Overall, I think they’re fair prices. If anyone has the spare cash, I will ask, please consider checking out my store and buying anything if you can.
My store can be found here -> cbkdesigns.storenvy.com/
I have sets of Avengers, Attack on Titan, Supernatural, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Homestuck, and Adventure Time, as well as several others.
If you would be interested in commissions outside of stickers, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk things out. And, if anyone is feeling particularly generous, my paypal email is email@example.com, if you’d be willing to just make donations (Though I’d probably feel better if you at least bought something. Like, order a commission or something.)
I thought I had something arranged, but now, I'm not entirely sure, and I'm nervous. Regardless, even if I end up borrowing this money from friends and/or relatives, I'm going to need to pay them back, and I need as much as I can collect on my own. So please, please, look over my stuff. If nothing else, please consider sharing my store with others and encourage them to buy something. I posted a very similar version of this story over on tumblr, so if you'd like to reblog and spread that around, the link is here -> ohsokarkrabby.tumblr.com/post/…
Thanks for reading. I hope everyone else is doing better than I am, and sorry again for my long absence. Hopefully, I'll be able to post some new stuff soon-ish.
