Seminary for the first semester (with initial apartment getting costs put in) would be about $8,000

This is after the tuition grant that the university is giving me.

If I have good grades (as I had bad grades in undergrad due to getting 10 new disabilities while trying to do homework), the tuition grant will increase to it only being $2k a semester.

Also, I'm in the middle of working through the candidacy process for the church to get funds for future semesters that way.

However if any of you would like to help with my costs, feel free to share and talk about me and anything like that.

Money for this would go directly to my savings as to not be mixed up with my other expenses.

I have like.... 3 weeks to see if this is viable. They require my final decision by the 18th.

#Maille going out of business sale: I am putting down my pliers once and for all, and need to raise $1200 by Oct 31 to avoid a lease default. Prices cut across the board. Pride jewelry, superhero bracelets, necklaces, purses, earrings. On Nov 1, the shop closes.

You know what, please just pay @scoots a living wage to make extremely good art.

If you have some spare, would you please send some cash @magicalmilly 's way? They were unable to work last week thanks to Hurricane Nicholas, and they're getting jerked around by unemployment, and their birthday is next week, and ... they could just use something nice in their life.

Crowdfunding money for a new iPad because mine is getting a bit dodgy on the battery life and it is how I make art for a living

I added a goal to Ko-fi for an iPad Pro 12.9 for my freelance work

The final ask from milly

I have a job that pays enough

My training paycheck (and some donations) have carried me through car explosions and HAD gotten me enough for rent.

And then the baby i live with got to take an er trip this morning.

And i got to buy medicine, food, supplies for her.

And it took me just under my threshold for rent and gas. Mandatory but aggravating.

I literally can pay you back on August 5th if need be. But that is right when rent late fees arrive.

If you can, a few bucks would be grand.

Good news: I'm going to be a grandparent. Bad news: my eldest and her wife are in serious financial difficulties. Please help a disabled Jewish lesbian and her trans wife through a difficult pregnancy. #mutualaid

It's been a couple weeks, so just a reminder that if you want to find me, I'm at now. :blobwave:

One more time:

I'm moving my primary account to . It has been a lovely four years here at Elekk but what I need right now is my own little asteroid in the vast fediverse.

You are welcome to follow me there, but please do so because you're interested in me as a person and not because you think I have influence on Mastodon or the fediverse in general. I'd like to be able to just be me, please.

Also, be aware that I'm not going to be posting there or following anyone for a while - I'm still in my hermitage, I just wanted to let you know what my new plans are.

(Also also, Elekk isn't going anywhere. Just to be clear.)

I would be happiest, I think, if my role in the world were to bring the extraordinary and amazing to the attention of the people around me.

One of these days I should watch "The Greatest Showman".

I'm a sucker for "Don't you want weapons and armor to fight me?" "Oh, no, I'll take yours when you're through with them."

I tried to watch Star Trek (2009) on Amazon Prime with ads, and I will be honest: they have just stuck 90 seconds of ads in every X minutes, regardless of whether or not it makes sense to take a break there.

I noped out when they interrupted the destruction of the Kelvin to sell me Reese's Cups.

Watching Star Trek Generations. Geordi, you dick, Data pushing Beverly into the ocean after she told him to "live in the moment" and "be spontaneous" was 100% funny and you know it.

Aquarium platform shoes, only with the little parasite aliens from Stargate inside instead of fish.

There's go'a'uld in them thar heels.

(Yes, ξένος also meant "stranger", "foreigner", or - heh - "hired help, mercenary", but "guest-friend" was its primary meaning.)
