You see, at the end of May, the lease on my apartment ran out, and considering that it was a 30 mile drive from my job, it didn't really make sense to keep living there. So, I decided to go back to my parents' for the summer to save a few bucks while I decided whether I wanted to buy a house or find another rental or what. Well, I kept putting actually doing much of that off because my cousins--who are in their 80s--own a place near where I work that they don't live in, that they really would like someone to live in. I talked to them about buying it but found out that they, uh, don't have the first clue about how to sell a house and it would have probably been more trouble than it was worth to do that. So, in early August, I asked if they'd be interested in just renting the place to me. They said they would be and that we'd talk about it next time they were down here. It's now October, and this discussion hasn't happened yet, which didn't bother me too much until about a week ago...when a pipe broke in the second floor bathroom at my (parents') house and the whole place flooded.
I've been sleeping on an air mattress at my grandma's house ever since.
It's not THAT dramatic, the house is still standing, the animals were all okay (though the dog was soaked and my rabbit was sitting in 3 inches of water), and there wasn't a lot of damage to furniture or other belongings, just to the floors and some walls. Insurance should be covering basically everything so it's not really a financial issue or anything. It's just going to be awhile before it's livable again, so I am...basically homeless at the moment and have no intention of staying with my grandma any longer than necessary. I also don't have my desktop with me on account of not having anywhere to put it, so I'm limited to traditional art or whatever I can do on my little Samsung tablet and Medibang Paint (which is AWESOME for a free tablet app, but it's no Photoshop/Clip Studio).
So that's where I'm at right now. I'm going to see my cousins about the house again tomorrow and if we can't arrange something that involves me moving in ASAP for a reasonable cost, I'm going to start touring apartments on Tuesday.
I, uh, don't know what to tell you to expect or when the comic will return or anything, BUT I will take requests for DC-related filler doodles or writing or what have you if you guys want to post some below.
In the meantime, the only thing I can actively update at the moment is my webnovel Kody, so I guess go check that out if you want something to pass the time until DC comes back.
Good luck, I guess? The situation seems pretty difficult. I REALLY hope you get to an agreement with your cousins or find a nice place to live in now. I think we all agree that we can wait for the updates, but you should be settled first. Lots of luck dearie!
