  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: power drills and hammers...
  • Reading: the label on the back of a paint can...
  • Watching: big burly he-man men pull walls down...
  • Playing: Huh?
  • Eating: sunflower seeds
  • Drinking: water


Ung, I'm so mad at myself. I screwed up in the dumbest way possible and I didn't even know until recently. I'm correcting things now. Just bear with me for this next week. I'd have known this sooner if I could have gotten to the library to check messeages and emails. I am SO sorry anyone this effected.

I read notes... Guh... I'm ashamed... I'll get to respond in the next day or two but I ask for at least this next week (renovations at my new place *___*...). This is a generic auto-response and kinda impersonal BUT I will get back to you personally. "First, I'm not upset. I understand completely and if I plan to be a pro I need to be more focused and disciplined. I apologize again (this is probably the 20th time...) about the delays. I need to learn to work AROUND all of other things. I should have tried WAY harder and if you are final on your decision there's no hard feelings on my end and I appreciate that you helped me when you did :). Thanks for understanding and again for your patience."

LOL, oh man, I feel like a loser just typing that. But hey, gotta own up to my mistakes and excuses.

Oh yeah, Advice to anyone, male or female looking for an apartment; don't settle for just anywhere AND don't let them pull that not enough income/you're single shit on you. WHO makes $30k a year? The people who are RENTING out the places don't even make that?! I pretty much got told because I'm female and have no man I'm at more risk of being late on rent/having domestic issues not associated with someone in a stable relationship/and I may be a liability in a building that doesn't have secure doors at all hours of the night. Because OTHER bitches are letting their drunk/high boyfriends into the building. I am apparently a statistic. YEAH. Mind you most of the property owners were MALE and had to comment on me being 'attractive and smart' and get their egos stepped on when I didn't respond to their come on's. I'm applying for an apartment, not a soulmate! So this apartment hunt was a nightmare-ish learning experience :D. The things you learn as you get older. I'm 25 now too... Guh.  

The only new art I have is commission art >__>;;; I'm still not going to post anything until I get those emailed out and all finished. Why does anyone even watch me? LOL!

Oooh thanks for the pointers on apartments - I might have to move out this year and though getting a student home is different, I'm still going to keep it in mind.

Good luck fixing... whatever you did wrong that I don't seem to have understood. 8D

If it means anything, I'd totally let you rent from me if I owned an apartment complex.

Yeah, been there with the apartment thing. I'm living with my brother right now, which helps, but I've had the hardest time trying to find decent housing as a single young person.

One thing that you can do is to wear a suit and carry a briefcase when you go apartment hunting. They make very nice women's suits nowadays, and if you don't have one, trust me, you need one! I've had a lot better luck going in there looking very professional and business-like, whether it's apartment-hunting, job-hunting, or just a meeting with an asshole professor. :P

'Round here the only requirement is that you make 3 times the rent in a month, so about 21k a year--and we're a college town too. Two junior colleges--Texas College (sucks), Tyler Junior College (good)--and we have a University of Texas at Tyler for our real college. We don't really have a housing problem here--UTT is pretty on top of things.

That's discrimination and grounds for a civil suit. Report their arse!

Yeah, I have been there and heard that crap. Good luck with everything, and hope everything else is going well.

Love your work, and I am sure that everything will begin to look up for you now. :D :D :D

*Nods* Even with the unfortunate issues that have come up for you, I have to say that you are still better at posting in your journal from time to time to let people who have commissioned you know that you still are thinking about the commissions and we're on your radar. The only thing that really unnerves me is when I don't hear at all from an artist I've paid money for months and months at a time, they don't post online, etc...

Honestly if i could i'd be on here everyday spamming with updates about everyone's commission status i just have such limited time with the internet. this last time was a total fluke though. I'm telling ou the universe gives me a bone then takes it away before i start chewing... my DSL (XD;; i know dsl) was running but my brothers lame house had no working phone jacks... *sigh*. BUT expect more from me. If only a star next to your name meaning *finished* XD;;;.

Aich - sounds like one of those frustrating times where if it's not one thing it's another >.< I hope that you're able to get your net problems (and others!) solved soon - I know how nuts it makes me to lose access to the internet reliably even for a short period of time.
And that sounds like a decent system - not necessarily having to note everyone individually - but keeping a kind of running log in a central location of your work list - I think that would probably give a lot of commissioners sound mind to see a public to-do list to know that they are on you radar - assuming you have the time <3.

Just so you know, if you are male and single/not rich, you get turned down for housing a lot too, because they think you are going to be that drunk loser boyfriend...

But yeah, it still sucks that they treated you that way - there's no excuse for their actions - it was prejudiced and sleazy.

...and, like many have said, we watch because the waits are always well-worth it - our patience is amply rewarded with beautiful art.
