Life Update: August 27, 2017

It’s been a few weeks, but things have been going well! I’ve been working and saving up money for the security deposit/new furnishings. We now have enough for the deposit, and we’re going to go pay it on Tuesday.

I’ve been filming some clips for a moving vlog and put together part one already. You can watch it below. I talk about a bunch of things that have been going on recently.

Once I’m moved and settled and have internet, I’m hoping I’ll have time to update this blog for frequently, and with other types of posts!

Please continue to share and donate to the GoFundMe! We’re going to need a lot of furnishings. We’ve also created anΒ Amazon WishlistΒ of the things we need in case you’d like to buy something physical. Thank you!


Life Update: August 5, 2017

Hello all! I didn’t have time to post last week, but I have some big news: We got an apartment!

I don’t have any pictures of my own, but these are the ones from the agency.

I am SO EXCITED to move, which will happen September 1.

Other than doing LOTS of cleaning and packing, I’ve been working five days a week. I haven’t been spending much time reading or writing at all, if any. Plus, all my books are packed away now. I feel like I’m in a kind of limbo for the month of August and life will resume once I move.

Thanks so much to everyone who donated and shared the GoFundMe! We have yet to reach our goal, though. While we’re saving our money for the security deposit, any help you can give is still needed and greatly appreciated as we will also have a number of moving expenses. Additionally, there are so many things we don’t have that we’ll need to purchase once we move – beds, kitchen appliances, lamps, curtains, cleaning supplies, etc.

If you can, please consider donating. Sharing the GoFundMe is also needed and appreciated!

Life Update: July 22, 2017

Hello all! I don’t have too much to update you on as I am focused on moving into my own apartment. Our GoFundMe is still going, so if you could pretty please consider donating and sharing, I would greatly appreciate it. Sharing on any social media – Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr – would be so amazing. Thank you!

We have our first showing this Monday. Hopefully it will go well.

I started my new job this past week as well, and while it was mostly training at a different location, I am very excited about the job.

As far as reading goes, I haven’t been getting much reading done. I am currently reading two books –Β The Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende andΒ Girls Will Be Girls by Emer O’Toole. However, I go most days without reading. So far this month I’ve only finished one little novella.

I’m hopeful next month will be better for lots of reasons!

Life Update: July 15, 2017

Hello all! I just wanted to let you know that my sister and I are doing better. We have more hope for the future. We’ve raised over $1500 now and that is so amazing to us. But not only that. We’ve had so many people send us messages and share the GoFundMe. We are encouraged by all of you who have been so kind. For both of us, our mental health has improved immensely because we have hope.

I start my new job this Monday, and hopefully after a few weeks, we’ll be able to move. Please keep sharing the fundraiser, especially on Facebook. Apparently, that’s where it can be most effective. But Twitter and Tumblr are extremely useful as well. Thank you so much!

IMPORTANT Life Update: July 11, 2017

Hello all! I don’t have too much to report on here except to say my living situation is really becoming unsustainable. I don’t think I’ve touched on this in the past, but I live with my family and my depression and anxiety are worse because of it. A few days ago, my sister and I created a GoFundMe to help us get out of here. Please consider donating, and if you can or can’t, please please please share it around social media (especially Facebook and Twitter). The more shares, the more it will help us.

We’ve raised $900 of our $3000 goal, and every little bit truly helps. Thank you so much.

I also created a video where I talked about this.
