The last couple of months have been frustrating. I've been dropping weight because to maintain it, you actually have to eat, and I've been more focused on making sure my roommate and cat have food. (I get really nasty when I'm hungry though)
That said I now have a cold, but a number of commissions to do for various people now that the holidays have passed. I'm going to attempt to finish them one right after the other once I've completely kicked this cold, and that means some of my comics and patreon projects will only get a couple of hours a week of work while I'm wading through the pile.
The current count, as far as commissions is:
•Bluekat's full color 2body piece
•Mike's series of Tavros [unnamed numbers of them. probably an icon, a side bar, a tumblr background and an expression pack]
•one nsfw lesbian rare pair being cute and shy
•Madoka girls in a very specific order with weapons
•a sketch of an interesting military character
•Friends table top gaming group draw
•this list to be updated later
As for the current situation: We've gotten a lot of help! Food has been purchased, including food for me, and my cat. We're almost to a point where I'm not afraid to eat. Almost. I spent a lot of last month counting food and being paranoid we were going to run out, crying over spoiled food, being frustrated that I was crying over spoiled food, being suspicious of our other roommate when inventory didn't match up. We're a little better right now, though. I bought a ton of chicken (that I should have repackaged before freezing but hindsight) We're a little low on rice, but that can be fixed...
Aside from the food situation, there's the issue of tech. a big donation came in this week, and I used a portion of it to buy myself an android phone that was on sale for $60 (a pay as you go deal that came with a complimentary first month ticket so) in order to give the one I have back to other roommates dad, because he uses it as a tether and dangled it over my head that he owns it. I can't live like that, so, problem solved.
My laptop has begun to crash on me when I try to use it for more than art (and sometimes when I use it for art, too) and crashes when I run recording programs. I'm pretty sure this means I have to upgrade soon, so if/when I can afford it, I'm moving to a desktop rig. I love my laptop, I just don't want to overtax it.
Our electricity bill came in. It was terrifying. $104.95 for the period between November 26, and December 26. Graphed a lower electricity use, but a drastically higher gas bill. It's weird, we didn't use that much gas...?
I managed to get it covered and paid but that was terrifying. Even with our care discount, we came out that high. What the hell.
As of today there's six months to our big move. We're counting down the days while dealing with our roommates not holding up his end of the deal, in his chores or his care of the main spaces. We're kind of... avoiding telling him about the chores he has so wedont get yelled at... Nothing worse than a guy who stands head and shoulders over you yelling and insisting he isn't then slamming doors around. So fun.
Medically: I'm still trying to get myself to stay regular with my epilepsy meds, and I'm seriously considering getting tested for autism spectrum disorders, too (enough friends with it have requested I do it now that... idk I should you know?)
We have a court date to appear and try to talk our way out of a traffic ticket, but idk how well that's going to work, and if it doesn't we owe a minimum of $270 to the state. joy!
I don't have much more to report but if you have any questions please ask them?
