Introduction: For those of you who don’t know me, my name is AJ. I’m 25 and have a really great job that doesn’t pay nearly enough money for the expense of the city I live in (Portland, OR, USA). Two years ago my mother was in extreme financial straits and I sold a bunch of her books online for her through Tumblr and y’all raised almost $200 for her because you’re awesome like that, so this time I need to try to do the same for myself.
The background info: I recently moved out of a bad housing situation (a housemate I did not choose moved into the house and his girlfriend started coming around and it turns out she’s a racist homophobic jerk) and moved into an apartment with a friend that is really great but more expensive. Another friend was supposed to move into the basement, but she reneged (I don’t blame her…there aren’t any electric sockets down there). In spite of this, I’m able to make my bills just fine…provided there are no unexpected huge expenses until I get my extra paycheck in October.
Cue my car breaking down.
Plus my laptop has been on the fritz for something like six months now and I thought it was doing okay with the move into the new house but as I’m typing this I can’t even see the screen…it has completely whited out.
So that’s $500 for the car (an absolute need) and probably about $200-300 for the laptop. The laptop is less important (I’ve been fighting with it for six months so another month or so won’t hurt me).
Edit: so as I was literally writing this post I set my computer aside and when I came back the computer screen was completely white and there was no way of resurrecting it. The cost isn’t as bad as I was expecting (slightly less than $200 but it is impossible to put it off any longer and now I’m looking at a $650 Visa bill).
What I’m doing: I’m a bookseller by trade so that’s what I’mma do! As much as I hate to part with my books, they aren’t an absolute necessity like my car is. Yes, I know you can find pretty much any of these books on Amazon for a penny but…well, that’s not the point. I’ve been reasonable in the pricing and of course I’m willing to cut deals for those of you who want multiple books.
I am willing to ship overseas but only if you pay the full cost. The first booksale, the one for my mother, I shipped three books to Australia and I only charged the person $10 but it ended up costing over $20, and I cannot afford to do that again.
What else I’m selling: My original fiction! Yup that’s really me. That’s my graduate school thesis: a collection of inter-connected short stories. I’m selling electronic copies (.pdf) for $7 each. If you want just the short story “Falling into Darkness” which is about a puppy and is easily the best story in the whole collection, I’m selling it by itself for $3.
I may also do fiction commissions (I can’t really promise fanfiction commissions since that would be running into copyright issues, but I can do short stories) for a reasonable price. We can discuss that on an individual basis.
If you need any more information please feel free to message me. If you can only signal boost, that would also be super helpful. Thank you all so so so much.
do you think impressionists ever imitate people they find sexually attractive when they masturbate and essentially sweet talk/ dirty talk to themselves?
Okay, so for like a full minute I thought you meant like the Impressionist movement. So I’m picturing Manet pretending to be Monet and that gets his rocks off. I hate being an artist.
