King o' The Cats
a cat in gloves catches no mice

i’m just gonna post this here

billboard-charts:

Well, as you all know, I was really, really happy to be out of my grandma’s house and back around my peers and learning etc. It was all so exciting. Now, I just learned that it might all be taken away.

I just heard a message from a woman who works for my college’s financial aid office, according to her, I actually owe the school money for my meal plan. $1,478 dollars exact, and here’s the thing, I didn’t even order that exact meal plan. The meal plan I chose was meant to be cheaper. But sadly, I was given the default plan, which is that exact price.

I wish it would be easier to just ask her if I could go without a meal plan for the semester, but sadly… it’s not. I live on-campus and in a dorm, and their policy is that you MUST have a meal plan. At least, that’s in their policy. That also means that the refund I received may either be someone else’s money or money that was not meant for me to have and I already spent 700+ on books and the computer I will need for the classes.

I just… ugh.

I can feel my grandma creep over my shoulder, and tell me, “Oh, look, I told you! I TOLD YOU!” I don’t even want to tell her yet. I’m too scared. I worked so hard. And for what? Probably nothing.

I want to cry. I don’t want to make anyone worry about me, but at that moment, I immediately spiraled into a depressive state.

I’m so tired. I’m just… so tired…

If you can donate, please donate, I can even give proof for this, if you want.

I have a donate button on my blog. Please boost this if you can. I’m sorry for the choppiness of this, I’m just trying to hold  all of this in and it’s hurting me.

GoFundMe: Cat Tales Rescue
 Cat Tales Rescue is an all volunteer-based, non-profit organization committed to reducing the homeless, unwanted, and feral cat population of Solano County through promoting low-cost spay/neuter options and educating the public on the importance of spay/neuter.     We advocate the benefits of TNR to control over population and maintain good health of feral cat colonies and educate the public about TNR and proper feral colony management.     We take in abandoned cats from our communities, feral colonies and cats at risk from euthanasia, to the extent of our resources and of foster home availability.As it is currently kitten season, we are in need of some help. None of our fosters have the hearts to turn away cats or kittens in need, and as a result we are very over-run with kitties! On 7/14/14, a 7 week old kitten was rescued from a bike path in Vacaville, CA. His name is Schwinn. Upon finding him, Schwinn’s eyes were both gunked shut, his ears full of crud and mites, his little nose stuffed, not to mention he was covered in fleas, and emaciated. After cleaning what we could, we realized that Schwinn’s left eye was a goner; it would have to be removed. A surgery like this is extremely costly, and our savings are already at a minimum. Though we are going through with the surgery, because there is no way we could give up on this guy, it is going to majorly impact our budget and what we can do for future kitties. This fundraiser will help to buy medicine, food, and litter, as well as pay for any surgeries or vet visits needed for future cats and kittens. Everything is non-profit, and you can see the proof of your help through www.catalesrescue.org and https://www.facebook.com/EveryLifeisaStory.Every life is a story.

OK PSA so a friend and i were both locked out of our accounts and had to reset our passwords due to “suspicious activity” after installing the gradient redux theme (multicolumn version) by majinbabe/meancutie/jubileethemes. i’ve removed the post from the blog but it has a couple hundred notes and could still be floating around.
please reblog this for attention because my friend actually cant access their email at this time and is totally locked out of their account.

I NEED to move out.

I’m becoming more & more depressed. I NEED to move out, because of where I live right now, is toxic and is making me depressed. But, to move out, I need money. Sadly, I don’t have any money or a job at all, and I can’t get one, because I’m so depressed & stressed out all the time.

I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.

Reasons you should give me money

People don’t like giving money for no reason, for the most part. That’s why all the signal boosts you see typically have a story attached. I suck at doing that so I’m just going to list my issues right here for future reference.

  • My rent is $325. My utilities are $100-$200. My Internet/cable is $150-$300. I also have a ton of medical bills and many of my meds cost 30$ or more. I also owe $700+ to my college, but that’s least important.
  • I can’t have my utilities shut off or my Internet disconnected. They have hefty reactivation fees on top of late charges, and additionally the Internet is important to my health and I need to be able to run WNSE (which is a part of my resume) so I can continue helping people.
  • My mother is constantly taking money from me and has been my whole life. She has forged checks before. I can’t stop her because I’m still partially dependent on my parents because of my health needs.
  • I work a minimum wage ($8.25 per hour) job, and it’s only part time. I get around $400 every two weeks, often after bills are due.
  • I can’t get kicked out.
    • This is the only place I can afford that will let me have a cat. I need Sunshine for therapeutic purposes.
    • I can’t move in with any family because nobody has room, nobody can afford another dependent, and everyone has babies. Additionally, my parents’ house is so stressful to be at that I can’t sleep, eat, or even use the bathroom.
    • Nobody is willing to let Sunshine stay inside, and she needs to be inside.
  • I have depression, anxiety, autism, insomnia, chronic exhaustion, hallucinations, and a bad immune system. I’m basically stuck home all the time but can’t get anything done because I never have spoons. Work is a constant nightmare, even if I only work for a few hours. I’m constantly having to decide between money and my health.

Click Here To Support A Trans Boy In An Abusive Situation Who Is In DESPERATE Need Of Your Help

tonetic:

Well, I made a gofundme in an attempt to help with my situation because I was encouraged to. And now I’ve also been encouraged to post it. So since I’ve been encouraged to do so, I decided I might as well. 

For those of you who haven’t seen my previous posts floating around, here is a rundown of why I made this. (This is also mostly the description on the gofundme page, with a few edits/tweaks.)

Hello. I am Seilor. A 26 year old FtM transgender, who is struggling to be able to afford the basic things needed for my transition. I am currently unable to work due to my current life situation as well as other medical/health issues, (severe anxiety, severe ADHD, PTSD from my life thusfar, immune issues, etc. {{there are more I’ve chosen not to list}}). I was also denied disability multiple times when I applied for it, though I am fighting that decision already, however there is no guarantee that I will ever get it, and I could end up having to go to court for anywhere from a year to three years to try to get what I am owed, and also am unable to even afford healthcare without help. This has left me with no current means of income. I manage to get by and keep my pets fed simply because I am living in my parents house, even though this living environment is highly unhealthy for me. My dysphoria has also been getting much worse by the week, as have my panic and anxiety attacks due to me feeling so uncomfortable in my physical body and the way others view me because of it. My hatred of my voice, and also myself because of it has also been slowly but steadily increasing, which is a terrible thing to me, since I never in my life thought I would ever be able to begin hating myself, however it is starting to become that way. I am even beginning to see more of why so many transgender people who are unable to make their transition end up committing suicide because they end up being so miserable they can’t see the point in living anymore.

I cannot afford new clothes, even though I have literally about 5 shirts and like 3 pairs of pants that I am comfortable wearing. I live on a budget of about $20-30 a MONTH, to cover the cost of food for myself and my pets, and even that amount is unstable and unreliable, and at times I have to make that last for 2 or 3 months instead of one.

Currently I am attempting to earn enough money to be able to at least start hormones, since beginning my transition would be extremely beneficial and positive to my emotional stability and state of mind, and then hopefully continue them for a long enough period to at least start getting results (over a year at least). The cheapest price for hormones is about $50 per vial for the shots (which is per month), and for the pills, it can get as high as $200 a month. The goal I set is also as high as it is, because it is taking into account future planning for top surgery, and starting to save at least a little for that as well since that can get to be extremely expensive, and for someone who is stuck in the situation I am, that is an almost impossible thing to save up for without help from others. Costs for top surgery can run anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 or more, depending, plus the cost of hospital bills and aftercare and medical expenses and everything else. It is also to help me to get out of my parents house, since I am stuck here for the same reasons as being unable to get a job, and the emotional (and physical) environment here is extremely abusive and toxic, and has been slowly causing my physical health to decline as well. I have been hit before (across the face and other places), on several occasions, as well as insulted and abused verbally on a daily basis. I also often only eat once a day because of my family situation, and due to the amount of stress I am under causing me to be unable to keep food down a lot of the time. My family is also unsupporting of my being transgender on top of the already unhealthy environment here, and choose to try to undermine it and fight against it as much as possible. However I have nowhere else to go, so I am dealing with it as best I can.



(Note: These photos are somewhat older however this shows the worst it has gotten here physically before, though currently it has gotten to be less as my mother has figured out that she can get in trouble for it and that I am willing to expose her if she continues, though it still happens from time to time. It has gotten much worse however, verbally and emotionally in place of that.)

I usually prefer to do things myself, as I have always tried to be very independent and self reliant so as not to bother others or be a burden, however some things I simply cannot do on my own. So this is why I am asking you all please, to help me with this, as I would like to avoid any further emotional damage to myself over this. Those of you who do choose to help, even $1 is a miracle to me, and know that to each and every one of you who give anything, I can never thank you enough and I will be forever grateful to you. You are making my dream come true, and saving me from all the emotional pain and stress, and quite possibly even saving my life.

And for those of you who find donating by those means difficult, I also have a paypal account for donations as well that you are more than welcome to use instead, simply ask for the email address, or find the button located on my page (The button will be SPECIFIED, since I have another button there as well for an unrelated project, so please pay attention.)

And please please please. Even if you can’t donate at the moment, I am begging you to please signal boost / reblog this, because this is really not a small issue. As much as I appreciate people “liking” the post as well, and the support that shows, it doesn’t help much, so please REBLOG it. I have been left with no other options which is why right now I am literally begging you guys for help. I have great faith in you, tumblr community, so please help me make at least part of my dream come true?


UPDATE (as of 8/12/2014): It has been several months now since I originally posted this, and this is literally as far as I have gotten with this.

Please. I am BEGGING for your help. I am a very very proud person, however I cannot do this without your help. I have no other options, which is why I have turned to you all. Please don’t let me down. I have great faith in you all.

So my school is fighting back against this principal

August 14- Principal Rich Thomas, in a senior class meeting about new rules and policies, when explaining the new phone policy, said “I don’t care if your Aunt is laying on her deathbed, you aren’t getting your cell phone back if we take it.”

Made a male student change out of his tank top in front of the school in front of him and at least 50 students into a shirt that followed the new dress code.

August 15-on- Constantly scans hallways, walkie talkie in hand, searching for students to either A. Give tardies to or B. Send to the In-School-Suspension room (ISS).

August 19- Pulled approximately 50+ female students from classrooms to be sent home over wearing gym/running shorts, made the girls who weren’t old enough to drive, and who’s parents couldn’t bring them clothes sit in ISS the rest of the day, even though this was many of their first EVER offenses.

August 20- Sent Mariah Adams home for wearing the outfit included in the picture attached.

Side notes: Was fired from Scott County High School for discrimination of the LGBTQ community members of the school.

Is forcing all students to wear lanyards with IDs to get into school.

Gives ISS after 4 total tardies in one semester, giving us 0.007% success rate in not going to ISS. With a total of 150 tardies within the first three days of school because of new, non-relenting policy.

Has expanded ISS room from capacity of 15 to capacity of 40 students with knowledge of the fact that he would be sending multiple student there for menial reasons every day.

And he also was fired before from another local school. LGBTQ Nation sent him a letter and sued the school: http://www.lgbtqnation.com/assets/2013/02/021413_Scott-County-Prom-Letter.pdf

The local news network has gotten word if the large amounts of chaos in the school and the nauseating dictatorship he’s made of our school.

We’re located in Perryville, MO. Literally and hour and half away from Ferguson.
