It's very understandable you're peeved, but try not to get discouraged entirely, instead come back to this after you've had a good night's sleep or similiar way to de-compress. Being able to do at least basic maintenance on your computer will save you money and stress in the long run, which is especially beneficial as a freelancer who relies on the PC. It's quite likely you simply plugged a cable back in the wrong way or something on that line. This happens even to total pros, so don't feel like you are stupid for it. With some practice and better understanding, this sorta thing will feel less frustrating and imposing than it does now.

Hurray for me. I had some health expenses I could deduct so I ended up paying for TurboTax Deluxe (aka $80). I got absolutely nothing back, all because my fucking student loan bank requires tax returns to qualify for income-based repayment plans. And by law, you actually do not have to file when you earned nothing, like me.

I feel dumb and I also feel like I got fucked over by another stupid debt trap, and also I’m broke again. Fucking banks, fucking stupid me for not just learning how to fill out forms on my own.

Edit: I can take care of it, it’s just... gah, capitalism is foul.

And more bad luck for me. No more income. Just total brokenness. At least losing my job didn't entail me losing shelter.

Life is cruel I guess. It's below freezing (5° farenheit) but I have absolutely no money left. Either I stand in this cold or my family doesn't eat. We don't get gas to run the RV. We end up fucked

Are there any local resources that can help? Sometimes shelter offer job counselling, laundry facilities, and so on. They're not always a place to stay (although that is important too of course)

Shelter isn't a problem. Where we are is. We are not near any of the resources like food banks. And getting a job won't sold the issue of having absolutely no money on hand. No money means we can't get food. Or gas to power up the RV we are living. Right now all I have been doing is standing in below freezing westher holding a sign begging for money and that gets me maybe 2 or 3$ an hour. And with below freezing weather I can't do that for very long or risk frost bitten toes and fingers. (Yes I have gloves but they are dollar store gloves. Not very good.) We are at the end of our finances and I'm just panicking at the thought.

That's rough. Well if it does help, I did find a list of resources that are technically for the homeless, but again some have some other resources (such as food stamp assistance, mental health help, etc.) which the author seems to have bullet-pointed. Here.

Just letting you know this is currently a link to edit the post, which of course doesn't work since nobody but you (and mods I guess?) has permission to edit it

I wish you the best of luck though :flutterunsmith: I might even see if there's something I can get.

e: Oh, it's a deviantart post originally? The link is to edit a post here on TRS, like I said.

What the...... It's supposed to be a Tumblr post hang on
Fixed it.

I just wish someone would actually hit me up. But being a colorist doesn't pay at all it seems. People only commission drawing artists. :fluttersmith:
Cuz my feet hurt so much every day. And I risk dehydration every time.

I lost one of my uncles this morning. My mom’s not taking it super well because her big sister passed away a few months ago. It’s been kind of a crummy year again already.

I... Just can nnever win. Sometimes i want to give up. Let my storage units default and lose everything in them. Cuz I'm always suffocating. I just can't win. I need to learn that.

Hurray, got a flat tire and now I have no way to get to any of my appointments this week so I’m going to have to call tomorrow and reschedule all of them. And find a way to get it patched/buy a new tire.

Uuuuuuuugh.

It’s $350 for a new set of tires. Really hoping it doesn’t come to that.

Rule of thumb I know is that if it's in the tread and isn't too huge, it can be patched. In the wall, you're SOL.

But either way I hope it works out as best it can.

So many fuckers who leave stuff around on the road/driveways that can fuck other people's cars up :unenthused:

It was in the tread and it was patchable. It ended up being $25 because I ended up getting a front end align,want and a new cabin air filter, but still better than $350.

There’s a bunch of condos going up nearby so there’s always nails and shit in the road.
