Hey everyone, long sappy post ahead.
I want to take a moment and thank you for your support. This has been unprecedented times since the pandemic hit, and I know many of you are doing what you can to balance your lives with work, finances, and social circles.
A bit of my back-story as of last year, I've been out of work since March 2020. I was able to get the extra benefits from unemployment which for the time helped keep me afloat. After the benefits ended, that's when things began to really decline.
My fiancée and I along with our best friend/ roommate were struggling to keep up with our rent and bills. Both my fiancée and myself had been directly impacted by the pandemic, and the only jobs that became available were high exposure risk jobs. I have asthma, and I have been avoiding jobs that are high risk.
I'm currently staying with a family friend with my mother, and my mother, roommate, fiancée and I are looking to move out as soon as possible. Things are looking up for we might have an apartment that will be suiting our needs.
I'm currently looking for work as well, and I won't lie, I'm very nervous about getting back into the work force and being as safe as I can be. I still haven't heard back from the places I've applied for, and that also is making me nervous. I'm trying to look for something where I'm on my own most of the time like delivery driving, something that I can control the sanitation of and makes sure that I can keep my family and friends safe.
With all of that said, I want to thank you from every fiber of my being for financially supporting me. All of you have literally been the reason I haven't gotten completely broke and that means so much to me. Money is even more difficult to come by, so to have all of you go out of your way to give me 3, 5, 7, 10 dollars a month is not taken for granted. I don't take any of you for granted and I deeply cherish your continued support, from Patreon to here on SubscribeStar.
A dark joke/ observation here, but you have been far more supportive than our own government. 😅
But in all seriousness, thank you. Thank you so much for supporting me and believing in me and my art enough to go and support me. It means the world to me, for you are helping me make this a career that I can stay at home, safe and secure. Its because of you that I am able to keep this up, and I truly hope that I won't have to stop or slowdown.
Sincerely, thank you.
