Hey guys, Michael here. I’m safe and sound with Ivan in Pennsylvania now. :) I’m still trying to get a job, but hopefully that’ll work out soon. You guys have helped us come so far, I can’t be pessimistic now. Everything will work out.
On my personal blog, however, I ran across Akaisha0’s post about her job. Awhile back, she was hit by a car and has been struggling to make ends meet. Now, it seems her job has been jeopardized due to a technical error that the tech crew has given up on fixing. I felt awful and wanted to help her somehow, but we’re still getting on our feet ourselves. So, while I can’t commission her or donate to her right now, I can help spread her story!
So check Akaisha0 out. She makes really awesome plushies. And not just Homestuck. I’m not sure what all she’ll do, but I’m pretty sure she could sew anything you came up with (she’s pretty awesome).
Not that I’m not coming home “Today”, my official leaving date is the 1st, but that I’m not coming home at all- and telling them today.
It’s a bit of an understatement to say I’m fucking terrified. But hey, I guess all they can do is trash my stuff. Which would suck, but they can’t really do anything to me, so…
But, I wanted to let you guys know- I’m here in PA with Ivan, and have been since the 15th, and have loved every minute of it. Except maybe walking in the snow. That wasn’t fun… The snow needs to calm down for a few days.
And you guys are to thank for getting us here. Seriously. You guys are the best. Without you, who knows where we would be.
I mean, seriously, we met our awesome now-roommate through this blog too. (And bless her for letting me stay here too now.) So, every single bit of the good things that have happened to us in the past year is because of you guys.

Maybe convincing his roommate to let me just stay there. Shh… Don’t tell my folks. The plan is to be there from Saturday, Dec. 15th - Jan. 1st. :D I’m so excited!

It’s crystal clear weather for me here in South Georgia- Ivan has a lot of wind but he says it’s really not too bad there yet.
All of you guys stay safe too, ok?
We both really like Artist’s Lofts (or whatever you want to call them)- the unfinished look of them and the huge open space- So we’ve been looking into various places, hoping to find one we can afford. Since Ivan’s all the way up in Pennsylvania now, I started looking there, and the surrounding states.
Well, that proved harder than expected because apparently lofts have become “a thing” now.
However, we did find a really lovely-sounding one in Cincinnati. It’s $895/month, all utilities included, and a surprising 2100 sq ft.
Since we’ve lived in South Georgia our whole lives until now, we really have no idea about anywhere, so… Has anyone out there lived in Cincinnati?
As always- Any comments or ideas are appreciated!

Ok so I had posted that our asks might be broken, but I just got some in so…
Ask box is ok!
I was wondering because one of Ivan’s ask boxes from one of his roleplay blogs was acting up- and I worried maybe this one was too and didn’t want to have missed something.

Hello, everyone! I know it’s been a long time since I posted here-last time I was on the hunt for a job, and I believe Michael told everyone that I got an interview! Well, my interview went a lot better than Michael’s-that still sucks, ugh-and I’ve more or less got my job in the bag! My background check came back all clean, and now I just have to fill in some paperwork, etc, and I will be all set for orientation and training! So all’s exciting and swell on this side of things!
