I am very sorry for doing this again. It seems to be the only thing I do on Tumblr anymore but I have to try something.
I can’t pay my bills. In a month, I’m going to lose my phone and have tons of problems with other bills if I can’t pay for next month. My bills aren’t much, maybe $150 each month, since I’m living at home, but I need to pay them, especially the phone, which gives me access to basic internet and gives employers a number to call (my family doesn’t have internet at home and we don’t have a landline). I just graduated college in May and am looking for jobs in my fields (English and Biology) as well as minimum wage jobs. Some days, I apply for ten jobs, though I’m averaging about five every day. I’m always writing cover letters, tailoring my resume, or looking for freelance work (editing, writing, knitting, other). I’ve had some interviews but have been rejected for every job I’ve applied for so far. I’m selling just about everything I can, including my books and old textbooks that are floating around.
To try to keep myself afloat until a job comes along, I’m doing commissions (see original post here: http://augeeklectic.tumblr.com/post/90506758325/commissions). I can do basically everything knitting and crocheting: hats, scarves, sweaters, mittens, gloves, fingerless mitts, afghans, etc. I also have an Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/AuAlternateUniverse) where orders can be made. I’m listing what I can right now but often don’t have access to wifi to upload new listings. New uploads include crocheted rainbow hats and Harry Potter house hats.
Please, if you see something you like, send me a message, either on Tumblr or on Etsy, and I’ll see what I can do! Once terms are agreed upon, I’ll create a custom listing for you. If you don’t want to commission anything, please reblog this post so others can see what I’m offering.
Thanks for looking!
