Hm, I’ve been avoiding mentioning this for a while now, but I feel you guys are owed a bit of news, so…
Yours truly is homeless, lulz. :3 Got a roof over our heads, but no place to call our ‘own’ anymore. It means a lot of tough things are being thrown onto me… I have to get a job when I’ve never really had a ‘real’ one before and have no idea what I want to work in, I have to find a way to get there for my current temp residence in the middle of nowhere, I’m going to need to make enough money to keep up my half of eventual rent despite being under 18 and working part-time (the other part of that time is going into writing).
So yeah. It’s tough. Money has never been a necessity until now, and I loathe it for its need now.
Trying to think of ways to make money out of work, like commissioned art or writing, online store installation and maintainence, sales through Punk Ethic… it’s tough. I know there are ways, everything from ghost writing to magazine writing, but I’m just a kid to the eyes of the world and I can’t get my foot in the door all that easily.
I can’t say it isn’t refreshing, though. The bitter cold, the star-flecked nights, the shared toilets, the lack of privacy, security or confidence… there’s something cold and real about it, and I love it. I feel… healthier, almost. A little more real, a little more me, a little closer to where I’m trying to be.
But yeah. Since I know a few readers will be concerned, I’ll throw up a few money-earning links, and I’ll take any paid requests for next to anything via e-mail… but really, I know my boyfriend and I can get through this off our own backs, so don’t feel obliged. I just want people to know where I stand, so they can understand why it’s hard to write right now.
Any, the obligatory stuff – Punk Ethic Productions is my online store, the stuff there’s cheap and a large percentage of what you pay will end up going to me to help with this matter.

That’s all for now.
