Alright so I have a job now which is super fantastic. Do you know what is not super fantastic? 

6 hours commute.

It takes be about 3 hours to get to work in the morning, and about 3 coming back. By the time I get home I have about 4 hours to eat, shower, and do whatever it is I need/ want to do before I have to go to bed.

I’m looking into getting a LIRR monthly which would cut travel time down to about 1.5 hours which, while it’s still pretty long, it's not as bad as 3 hours.

However, a LIRR monthly pass is 210$ which is way more than I’m willing to spend after my 136$ PABT pass and $113 Unlimited Metro (which I totally recommend because I can literally go wherever I want). My monthly transit costs are already about 250$ which takes my usable income down to 700 something which sounds like a LOT until you have to save it. And with the holidays and me being sick, my pay has gone down a lot. 

My commission prices are a little high but they are going to a good cause (at least I’d like to think so) my mental stability and physical well being. As it is, a minor heart condition I have has been acting up because of all the stress I’m under. 

TL;DR - I don’t want to spend 3 years trying to get home and am trying to save up some extra for a faster route and I’m opening some commissions to help things along.

Headshots: 5$ and 2$ for each additional (2$ for colour)

Waist up: 7$ and 3$ for each additional (3$ for colour)

Fullbody: 12$ and 5$ for each additional (5$ for colour)

Fullbody sketch: 8$

Clothing ref, one way - 7$

Character Reference sheet (for an oc): 15$ and 7$ for each additional (4$ for colour)

Anything as ‘Lineless’: 10$ (no option for backgrounds)

Anything with a background is an extra 10-15$ depending on the complexity

  • Mood: Grouchy
  • Listening to: Prayer in C - Lilly Wood
  • Eating: Peanut Butter
  • Drinking: Apple Juice
