I have always been fascinated with people who can endure great tragedy and challenge and somehow still persevere with some semblance of personal pride and dignity. I cannot help but read the various classifieds, signs in storefronts, posts I see on Craig’s List…and read an enormous amount of information in them.
Here is a good example of one:
Had to quit job temporarily for maternity situation and boyfriend and I are having problems paying bills. So I have a few things I can sell-
I have a working Nintendo 64 with cords and controller
Have a possibly working super Nintendo without cords or controller
Have a sega genesis without cords or controller
A bunch of good condition juniors shirts
Two Hugga bunch dolls (Huggins and Impkins) in fairly good condition
Anime drawing instruction books
Beads and assorted art supplies
I also make rosaries, custom if interested.
I have some paintings I’m working on, of anyone is interested in darker, morbid type paintings.
I can clean houses, my boyfriend and I can paint houses also.
Any offers are considered, I’m getting a bit desperate.
Makes you want to take a chance on the morbid type paintings, doesn’t it? The range of emotions and judgements I make (just reading through this) is remarkable. Is her boyfriend giving up HIS coveted gaming systems to help out the cause? Is he resentful about this? Since the baby came, do the junior shirts no longer fit her stretched, post birth body? Is she still young and selling her prized Hugga dolls-and is this an expression of her Innocence lost? Rosaries that are no longer needed because the Catholic church is no longer an option since the arrival of her baby and out of wedlock living conditions? But yet she is a fighter, wiling to do some hard work and make huge sacrifices for her family.
So this and other signs, tags and communications from various different sources have become my interest. Let me know if one of these posts presents them selves to you- and send it along. Here is one sent by a friend
