Wishlist Meme 2017

Fri Dec 1, 2017, 2:45 PM

It's that time of year again! I really loved doing this last year and seeing all the friends that I could get to join in!
I want to do it again this year and try to get even more people involved!
Of course, just like last year, nobody has to feel forced to do anything on this list, this is just a fun little thing to get us in the holiday mood! 
So feel free to join in and pester your friends to join too! 

• Make a post to your journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV"). The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
• If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) can get in touch with you. Your home address is not required!
• Make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your journal, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.
• Surf around your friend's list (or friend's friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part...
• If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes one person's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use - or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free - do it.
• You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf - to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call. There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give and you might receive. You'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

🌟 Rose's 2017 Holiday Wishlist 🌟
Note : I'm doing this because I like doing these little meme things, I'm not actually expecting to receive anythingSweating a little...

1. Just like last year, LOTS of hugs! Hugs and kind words make me super happy even if the hugs are virtual.

2. Donate to your local pet shelter! Donate whatever you can, most places prefer cash donations but you can also call your local shelter and see if they are in need of anything. Most of the time they'll be super happy to receive things like old blankets, heating pads, food bowls, leashes, collars, food, etc! I'm sure they will greatly appreciate it. After spending this year volunteering and fostering kittens for my local shelter, I can honestly say it makes you feel like a hero. Unfortunately I'm now in an apartment where I can no longer foster and just said goodbye to my last litter a few weeks ago. But you can bet I'll be fostering again in the future!
If you can't donate money, donate time! Go spend 30 minutes or so up at your local shelter just walking and playing with the dogs, or sitting in a room playing with the cats. The more socialized these guys are the better chance they'll have to go to a wonderful home someday! (And... you know... take pictures of the pets you help and post them to your facebook or something... get the word out!)
TL;DR Donate money, stuff, or your time to a local pet shelter!

3. Fan art of my characters. I love seeing them drawn or wrote about by others. I love seeing them interacting with different characters. It makes me happy to see them getting love. I still have a Fan Art section on my website where I'm collecting all fan art to display!

4. Anything involving Archer EMIYA from Fate. He's my husbando and I love him XD

5. More giant sweatshirts. Just like last year, I still have an obsession with them. I have like 3... but that's not enough... there will never be enough!

6. Fuzzy blankets, socks, pajama pants. Still a fuzzy hoarder... It will never end!

7. A 2DS XL. Unfortunately mine is really getting ready to kick the bucket on me. I still haven't beaten Pokemon Sun or Pokemon Ultra Moon... I play it for a little before I pass out at night and I'll be pretty upset if I can't beat them before my DS actually kills itself without a replacement :/

8. Items from my Amazon. Last year my friend taught me how to set it up for friends to order gifts straight from the list so I don't have to display my address to the whole world.

9. (This one is for one of my wonderful friends) A Hooters Uniform. I already have a shirt, I just need the shorts, tights, and trainers. I know it's a long shot, but boy would it make my friend's year XD

10. A great 2018 for us all. I'm not sure about you guys, but 2017 was another rough year. Probably the roughest I've seen so far. I just hope it wasn't too bad for you all and of course I wish that 2018 will be great for us all. I know plenty of people could use a break from stress and rough times, and I genuinely hope you all find it next year. Stay strong my dears, we'll make it through.

I'm back but I need help... UPDATE! We have raised the amount needed! Thank you to everyone who's helped by donating or sharing! I hated asking people to save my dumb ass because I decided to spend all my money on paying off some off a majority of my medical bills and I'll be much more careful in the future. Hopefully I won't be getting crazy sick again anytime soon so I don't end up with more medical bills and potentially pain. So far, I'm doing pretty decent health wise. The only thing that's been bothering me is the pain caused by my back and joints but that's been a constant for a while, so it's starting to become the norm for me. So let's just keep our fingers crossed that all my other health stays in the green for a good while. Now! Time to get back to doing the draws and getting things done! I'll keep doing my best to bring you all the best I can! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~So I'm really sorry I've been gone the past few days. A lot of things have been falling on my head recently and I just needed a wee bit of time to pull myself back together before I break down really bad. I've managed to take a breather and collect myself while trying to figure out how to approach the biggest issue I'm facing right now. A few weeks ago I found out that the hospital didn't set up my automatic payments correctly, which means my hospital bills went into collections and then to an attorney, so I ended up having a court date and ended up being able to work out a payment plan with them thankfully. After finding that out I called and found out a few more of my hospital bills also weren't set up right and hit collections. I managed to get those paid off with my tax return. So essentially I've managed to get over $2,500 of hospital bills down under $1000 now and I only have 2 payments to make each month. Which has managed to take a good bit of weight off my back since I have those all under control.Unfortunately this has left me with no money to pay for my state taxes. I ended up going overboard and spent the money on hospital bills trying to keep more from going into that dreaded court shit (because court will add a wonderful $400+ to your debt as I just recently learned) I thought I would have another job by now, unfortunately I haven't gotten one despite applying all over my city. I forget how hard it is to get a job without connections around here DX Anyway, I'm currently sitting with $666 owed to the state by the 10th of April. I know... I know... $666 sounds like some prank, even I was like "What tha? How did I manage this?" but yeah, after shitting myself I was slightly impressed, only I could manage to owe people the sign of the beast. I've been racking my brain trying to get a plan to make this money in a short time without stacking more work on top of myself...I've been working hard to get through my list as quickly as I can, and while I've been making myself really proud with how well I've been doing, I'm getting anxious about having to add more to the list I've been working so hard to break down... I just can't do this one alone... I thought I could and I was really confident in myself but I don't know what to do other than reach out for help. Which was one of the reasons I had to go collect myself. I'm always on board to help those I really care about to get the help they need, but I'm still a prideful brat when it comes to helping myself... Not really because I don't think I deserve the kindness (Like I did back in the day) but because I don't want to be a burden on anyone. But I'm growing far too close to this deadline... and I don't want to be a pain in the ass to myself and everyone else by adding more to my already bursting commission list. Because at this point I don't want to make more people wait on me to crank things out than there already is... More importantly... I don't want to end up in trouble with the government. That's like... the last thing anyone needs honestly. So yeah... For anyone who might be able, your help would be lifting the biggest weight off of me right now. I'll make updates in the comments if we manage to make it to the goal. of course, do not feel bad if you can't help, I always stress and will continue to do so that if you are in a bad way yourself DO NOT put yourself in a worse way to help me. You take care of your stuff first as you are the most important thing to you (or at least you should be) If you want to help in a non-monetary way, feel free to spread the word. Signal boosts always help, even if you think they don't. For anyone who donates, please make sure you message me so not only I can thank you personally, but keep track of who's helped so I can find a way to pay you back for your kindness once my current work list is down. I'm not sure what I'll do as a thank you just yet, but I'll come up with something in time for anyone who helps. Thank you to anyone who managed to read all of this. And an even bigger thank you to anyone who helps. I couldn't do it without you guys. You all have kept me going all these years and inspired me to stay alive and caring for myself. I just hope that I still manage to make things that you all enjoy... Love and Hugs, Rose...
