Need Coffee?

One of the new designs up in my redbubble shop. Curious, go to http://raineofiris.redbubble.com to see more.

 There’s also a new parapopulous redbubble shop. And a new blog post too!

Still not done unpacking or renovating but I’m muddling through. Thanks beyond words for sticking with me through all this.

au revoir

Soooooo then

Well, we briefly got things working again! 

I’d been hoping to be back streaming & blogging & podcasting with y’all again but yesterday afternoon my laptop died. Yes again. It’s not functioning at all so I’ll be limited to what I can do from a phone again. I’ll make it as quick as I can to get things back to normal, and in the meantime you’ve got my thanks for your support in this ridiculousness.

*** Update

So it looks like my father thinks he can fix it but I will lose any customized things like photos, graphics, podcasts and such. I’ve backed as much up as I could have before it died so hopefully I’ll have some, if not most of my stuff. It will be a bit while he works on it and another bit when I have to attempt to get it back to working order, and curse while I try to remember all my apps. But for now I am the non Mac version of Carrie Bradshaw, I promise I’m coming back stronger.

Filling Things In

So as usual I’ve been busy but quiet. Behind the scenes there’s so much not good I’d rather you didn’t know but I have to let y’all in. 

So I feel like y’all should know what’s going on in case I vanish. My housemate hasn’t paid the internet and apparently it and my phone (as it’s a connected account) could be disconnected at any point unless I can come up with the money. I plan on keeping things going as long as possible and I’ll get back up and running as soon as possible but I don’t have the means to pay it out so it’s business as usual until the lines go down without a miracle. Sorry to have to bring it to you but I thought you deserved the truth. 

It’s truly hard with how well everything has been going to see this part of my life bottom out. If I had a “real” job (and the ability to have one, which with my back injury among other things isn’t possible) or if I’d money coming in (no I’m not on any support at all nor do I want to be, and that’s how I want to continue with no disrespect to anyone who is) I’d not be in this position. I feel like it’s all within grasp but it’s just not there financially yet and that shouldn’t negate all your support of my various projects. I’m attempting to perform miracles and transform my life and I know there’s bumps on the route, I just wasn’t expecting this one. I guess it’s gonna make for a hell of a story though! 

I promise I’m not vanishing for long if it happens.

Losing Leia

It’s been a while I know and what brings me back today breaks my heart. When I thought 2016 had given me all I could bear Rickman, Cohen, Bowie, Michael & Prince and all the personal issues, this…my hero is gone.

Carrie Fisher to me was who I wanted to grow up and be. I remember being devastated my hair would not make proper Leia buns and of course most of us identified with her as Leia, she herself was as strong and determined. I wanted to be her and in some ways, I guess the chaos in my life echos hers. I was proud to see her publicly wrestle her deamons and stay strong, though I wish she’d had the ability to privately do so, it gave those of us wrestling our own issues courage. She was sassy and upfront and will be so missed. 

Guide us General Leia, give us courage and strength to fight the dark.
