Yesterday I hit rock bottom, financially, when I bought the train ticket that would take me to see The Dark Knight Rises. I’ve been without a job since January and out of full-time education for over a month now, so I’ve really not got much of an excuse to not get out there in the real world and find someone who’ll give me money to do things I don’t really want to.
Didn’t really help things that I got a rejection call from a job the day before, and while I’m doing some work for somebody else that might pan out eventually, right now it’s only on spec (i.e. not paid until I do half the job to prove I can do the rest of it).
So I’ve been reduced to ebaying my life.
Thankfully I’ve got a couple of high-value old videogames that fetch a nice price in the nostalgia market, along with several large boxes of comics of varying value, but it would still be nice to be able to hang on to all my cool shit for a little longer.
And yep, this is less a post than an advert: feel free to visit my ebay page if you’re into new(ish) comics and recent(ish) vidjagames. I’ll probably be adding lots more day by day – because taking and adding picture of dozens of comics is a fairly lengthy and irritating process – but I won’t hold it against you if I don’t get twenty bids by tomorrow.
I promise I’ll say something real next time.
