I'm sure you've all noticed the $12 price tag on the latest CoW pack.

CREATURE OF WHIM Premium Pack #6 -Available Now! by AlanES

Not only that but the fact that I have the gall to charge that much for one pic less than normal, much like Pack #4 before it. Just like then, I'm in a fix, only it's much larger than last time. I'm going to get in a lot of trouble to saying this, but she is making no effort to help me so I am going to make no effort to protect her.

When I was a teenager, my mother bullied me into getting a credit card for her under my name. If I didn't do so, I would have to deal with being threatened to get thrown out of the house, so I had no choice but to comply. She cancelled the card and never paid the debt back. Years later, the collection agencies came after me because while the card was hers, it was under my name. I was taken to court over this and had to force her to own up to her debt.

I thought that was the last I would ever have to deal with that mess again, but unfortunately I was wrong. The debt collectors never sent us a specific tax form we needed to fill out on my 2013 tax return and because it was filled out incorrectly, I owe the IRS $441, due April 8th. I told them that I was never given this form and they told me they didn't care. The fact that I never got the form, let alone even KNEW about it, was my responsibility to deal with.

Yeah. Figure that out.

I suggested to my mother since this was once again HER bill under MY name that we could sign up for a payment plan, but she refused as in doing so, the IRS would tack on interest as we went along and she would end up paying more that she would if she paid the $441 straight out. She said that she would pay the taxes straight out.

There are only two weeks left and I haven't heard a word about her making any effort to pay off this debt. But she has the nerve to tell me not to stress about it when stressing about it is all I've been doing because I know how unreliable she can be at times like this. How she loves to wait until the last possible minute.

Know how I know this? She's in no rush to pay off this debt, but she's more than happy to buy me airline tickets to visit the family in the summer for ROUGHLY THE SAME PRICE

As you can see, I am on my own once again on this one.

I absolutely HATE that I have to release the pack early and charge more, not to mention the fact that until this is dealt with, the 1,000 to Victory Campaign is on hold, but if I don't deal with this as soon as possible, I don't even want to imagine what will happen. Please forgive me and understand my situation. I would not be doing this otherwise.
All right, folks, internet is back on around town. And not a moment too soon, Pack 5 is out!

Thanks for your patience.
Earlier this year, the pipes in both apartments above me exploded and the flooding waters all fell into my kitchen. I was lucky enough to be off that day so it was caught early and the damage was minimized.

Last Wednesday, not so much. It happened again while I was at work, and this time was left to wreck havoc for several hours due to the fact that no one lives in the upstairs apartments now. So basically, my apartment and a good chunk of my belongings are totaled, especially my computer monitor mouse, keyboard (I'm using my laptop for this) and desk that housed it. Thankfully the ACTUAL computer was sparred, but without a keyboard, I can't really do much with it. I also lost a good lot of magazines, my hair clippers, and other nick-knacks. And that's only assuming everything that's not on the floor (my couch, tables, etc.) isn't damaged underneath due to water creeping under it.

The damage to my apartment is so much greater this time that I'm going to have to be relocated to another one. However, since this just so happened to happen to me close to Thanksgiving, they're not going to move me until the beginning of December. So my hopes for the first Thanksgiving I've had off in years are pretty much screwed. Go me.

Thankfully, my job has some sort of program for cases like mine of an employee in need, which I might qualify for. Emphasis on MIGHT, so I'm not getting my hopes up. I tried talking to my housing authority and they said that all they can do, since this was a freak occurrence and not neglect of any kind, is move me to a new place. In regards to my belongings that got damaged, "That's why you have Renters Insurance". I tried talking to State Farm about it and they said that I'm going to have to pay a $500 deductible while they cover the rest. And that's not even taking into consideration how much it's gonna cost to get a U-haul truck, moving supplies, and finding someone to help me move as I don't know anyone in the area.

All costing money I barely have.

I'm going to be somewhat MIA for the next two weeks until I get things settled. :iconarrowny18:, I dunno if I'm gonna be able to finish my collab entry in the middle of all this, but I'll try. Lameplay Theater is on hiatus while I figure things out, but may be kaput if I end up moved next to neighbors who aren't going to put up with my shit (I mean, look what living near nobody has gotten me).

But yeah, this is to let you guys know.

This is what I think of your extremely intriguing storyline, :icondanshive:!

But hey, Sarah’s magic mark is in the shape of a question mark, so I guess that much is proving true.
