So my cheap little bright green eBay violin needs new strings, and one of the fine-tuners fixed, and something done to its bridge. And I need a shoulder rest and a tuner and stuff.

And there's the ongoing question of Explo money, and I need to buy plane tickets to go to WisCon. And I need $90125 (it went up with zero notice, crap!) for my driver's license (can you believe that? In Georgia it was $8!)

And and and. Credit cards are maxed out. Yay.

And I just don't have the money to fix up that violin. Because the kid comes first, and the family as a whole. And then career stuff (and make no mistake, WisCon is valuable career stuff). And then playing around.


I've e-mailed to see if the class fee's partially refundable. And I have to withdraw for now.

When I have a little money, I'll get the violin fixed up. And then when I have a little more, I'll enroll again.


It is a grey sad day, and I hate giving up things that make me happy, and I need a hug. Is no one here to hug me. So I will curl up on the couch with my heated blankie and read, perchance to nap.

EDIT: No, this is not an asking-for-money post; any money I get goes straight to Explo. Violin lessons = not salvagable at this time. I just with Explo would let us know if we got financial aid and, if so, how much; I have too many balls in the air over this.
