A Little Girl named Drama
I used to love blogging, and I still do, but I have had a horrid week, and I just couldn’t collect my feelings to talk about it. It wasn’t horrid in the sense of anything truly horrid, but everything just grated on my nerves so badly. I didn’t finish a 9,000 word paper I was supposed to write. I only got up to about 2,000 words. I missed my drawing class three times, even when I’d promised the professor I’d bring her a certain document she’d asked for the next class. I failed my Statistics test because I had insomnia the night before and couldn’t sleep until five in the morning, and then I slept until class started. I only had time to do the first question after I rushed in panting, and in my panic, I failed one part out of the three part question.
If my mother happens upon my blog at this point, I am finished.
So that sounded pretty bad. But nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo… that’s not even the half of it. My 30 day trial of Adobe Illustrator (yes, the god of all graphic design software that is critically essential to any kind of t-shirt designing that Sugabelly might be undertaking) expired.
Oh and did I mention it costs a mere $300-$400.
Sorry folks but that’s big money to a college freshman with no job. Big money said college freshman does not have.
So, after crying my eyes out that the one true love of my life (well, excluding my Mom, Ibrahim my baby cousin, and Bakura) – My clothing (t-shirts for now, but definitely more kinds of fashion in the near future) company was about to be quashed by $300 worth of programming, I decided to get a loan from KIVA.
Now here is what went down:
Sugabelly to KIVA: I’d like to borrow $300. It’s for my company. I just started it, and if we don’t get this software, all our business processes will disappear *poof* into the air.
KIVA to Sugabelly: Why of course, we fund just that kind of thing. However, since you are not currently physically present in your Third World Country of citizenship, we cannot approve your loan. Why don’t you try Prosper instead? They do the same thing we do, but in America.
Sugabelly pouts, but then skips off jollily to Prosper.
Sugabelly to Prosper: I’d like to borrow $300. It’s for my company. I just started it, and if we don’t get this software, all our business processes will disappear *poof* into the air.
Prosper to Sugabelly: Why of course, we fund just that kind of thing. However, since you are not a U.S. Citizen, we cannot approve your loan. Why don’t you try KIVA instead? They do the same thing we do, but in your Third World Country of citizenship.
So Sugabelly returned to her dorm room and cried all night long.
And in the morning she downloaded Inkscape.
I know you probably think that that’s the happy ending to the story, but unfortunately, Inkscape is IMPOSSIBLE to use. I have never encountered such a confusing program in all my graphic design/website coding/Internet addict days.
