burned my hand curling my hair today
This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.

HELP ME BE A BETTER ARTIST!
(This is about donations, so if you’re flat out against people ‘begging’ for money, you should ignore this post)
If you don’t know me, my name is Lamppu and I’m an amateur artist who wants to improve her skills.
I’m currently on a sick leave because of mental health issues and I get the minimal support available, which isn’t a lot. Because of my medication and other health problems, I can’t draw how I’d prefer: traditionally, not with a computer. You see, my hands shake, and it’s pain in the ass to draw with a pen and ink(my preferred method) when all you can produce are wiggly and messy lines, so I in a way, I have to use my tablet to draw because it’s easier for me to erase the mistakes I make because of the shaking.
I’ve been using a tablet for almost 10 years now, but I don’t like it. At all. And it’s also hard for me, because for some odd reason my brain can’t comprehend that when I use the tablet, the lines will appear on the computer monitor, not on the tablet, or, ‘paper’, if you will.
This has become a huge problem for me as of late(I don’t draw as often as I used to), and I’ve been trying to save for a Microsoft Surface Pro 64GB to help me with my drawing. It would be so much easier for me; it’s a tablet and I can draw on it like on paper but I can still erase all the mistakes I make.
So, what I’m asking is, is donations, so I can buy Surface Pro and hopefully it will make drawing easier for me, so I can actually enjoy drawing again.
The Surface Pro costs about 500€, and I have about 100€ saved up in change and I will continue to put money aside.
