23 y/o female Graphic Design Student and Artist from Australia, who usually goes by Kery (Kerynean).

I’m just returning to art after quite a long break so mostly I’m just trying to get re-acquainted with it.

So any of you following my somewhat sporadic status updates will have noticed that I have a functional computer again, which I have been waiting on for about 6 months (long story). I am currently looking into setting up my commissions properly with recent samples and what-not (also figuring out what my art is actually doing since my style has taken a bit of a left turn from what I used to do, apparently I like lineart now????).

Perhaps the most glaring reason I am setting up commissions is my financial situation. Although I am in a stable home with income from my long-standing boyfriend, I've been unemployed since January and before then could only manage contract work. I am on our government support payments, however I just had my payments harshly cut after moving into a new apartment and registering my boyfriend as my boyfriend which forced us to be considered as 'combined income' despite not sharing bank accounts. And now he's pretty much paying for everything: food, bills, rent - the whole deal, because of how broken this government system is. It's not a good feeling.

To further illustrate how broken it is, I'm now being forced into our compulsory work-for-payments scheme which is all 'volunteer' work (using that as loosely as af because if I don't do it, I don't get paid) in which I will be working 25hrs a week for the equivalent of $2.60 AUD an hour. Although I'm fine with the volunteer work itself, it's more the hours I'm pulling for money that can barely pay for fortnightly groceries. So yeah, it really sucks. This has made me incredibly conscious of the potential for this to all go south pretty quickly considering the strain my arguably fragile, medicated chronic-depressive psyche - and the first thing to go will be my passions, meaning art. Which I just fought to get back.

So yeah, that's a kick in the teeth.

Hopefully I'll stay strong and be able to set up commissions and do them even with this eating into my schedule - but if it gets bad enough I will be talking to the respective government departments to let them know of my situation, though I don't think there's much that can be done short of going off the program altogether. The most depressing part of this all is there's absolutely no way I can set up savings right now and I need at least $2000 for starting potential training for Vet nursing. All commissions will likely be going into this fund, as well as just general survival not being a deadweight for my boyfriend.



Sorry to end on such a depressing note but I figured it'd be good to let everyone know my situation, given that I've just resurfaced. Hopefully I'll be able to stay ; ^ ;

I wish my journal entries weren't all f*ckin sob stories but apparently my life is still a trainwreck, sorry everyone. ANYWAY EVERYONE HAVE THESE CUTE GOATS, YEAH.
 
Omg my computer is fixed, I can finally art again. I'm gonna cry. Llama Emoji-21 (Speechless) [V1] 
Guess I'll just work on making all my commission/ARPG trackers in advance while I wait for the internet to make up it's mind again. Damn dropouts -__-
