i've pm'd cooly, but in the meantime here are my updates:

after four months of waiting for unemployment, i got notice shortly after my court date in the beginning of july that my unemployment was finally moving forward. i was told that 5 business days after that notice i would receive my benefits award letter in the mail detailing the amount of wages i'm entitled to (which may or may not include back-payments, tbd by the court,) and then a week after that my card would arrive.

well, i'm sure you can guess, 5 business days went by, then 10, and now i'm nearing 15 business days with no updates. every phone rep i spoke to told me that wage calculation is something that they have no control over, and all i can do is wait. their estimation is 5-10 weeks, which is very different than what i was originally promised. at least they've confirmed that the process is underway, but the thought of waiting another 8 weeks or so is definitely unacceptable. i'm praying that this is sped up of course, and hoping the delay is due to them calculating 4+ months of backpay for me, which of course when i'm rewarded i'm going to use to pay back to the fund everything i can.

thankfully i've been able to do odd jobs around town for friends, but any part-time or full-time work i've applied for has not given me a response back.

i don't know exactly what the policy is on evictions now that the moratorium has been lifted, but thankfully my lease is almost up, and i'm hoping that i'm able to crash in a friend's guest room rent-free for a few weeks until i can find work.

a combo of blacksugar & the fund have covered blab's needs for now (i think? post itt or dm me if you need more blab)

the fund is tending downwards now that UI benefits are ending so if anyone wants to donate there you're welcome to, but we still have a decent amount of reserves & a list of people to DM who have promised to donate when we need it.

thanks so much to all the donors for making this possible

hey all,

i think the last time i posted was in blab's job search thread lol and have forgotten how to post being out in the country with basically minimal internet. haven't made any progress since then. i'm expanding my job search to out of state and am just going to make the drive to anything i can get. it feels super weird to ask since i've never posted that much and i don't even know how much i need, but the CC is maxed and it would basically be a confidence boost to keep going since i've been out since Nov. of last year. if anyone has any leads in IT or something entry level in something that someone with an M.S. in biology can land with decent computer proficiency, i am willing to move anywhere in the lower 48 states. i get 50 mpg in my prius C and i could always make a trip thread with pics and updates ala rtt lol. anyway, losing my mind ever so slowly since my life is like 1) listening to the first half of the new bright eyes record before the rain takes away the connection, and 2) netflix having the only streaming service with an algorithm good enough to make it grainy when the speed dips (parks and rec is the highlight of the day usually). but that is most people these days. the first post was not very clear so i'm not sure how this works but my paypal is vieuphoria@gmail.com.

p.s. sorry any cleverness has vanished

tiger be in touch in dms when you realize how much you need and when you need it etc

sorry to be so crass about it. it sounds like a difficult situation & you seem to be doing everything you can to get out of it, but all i have access to in terms of helping you is the fund.

good luck getting this figured out and definitely dm me when/if you have dollar amounts

This isn't for me or a request for direct support but I have a friend whose husband lost his job due to covid and is having a really hard time finding a new one. They just had a second kid and shit is starting to get a little scary for them.

She runs an etsy shop where she does really amazing ink and watercolor greeting cards and prints. If you have a need for greeting cards or nice watercolor prints of animals it would be cool if you checked out her site.

Hey, quick update. my roommate has been trying to kick me out early for getting (possible, but negative for now probably pneumo') COVID. like fifteen days before rent is due. At this point I'm just going to force an eviction and head south. If anyone knows a pro-bono lawyer in the New Haven, CT area that does eviction cases please get in touch. I lost both my jobs because I got sick, this is not cool.

Thank you so much. I've been through the criminal process (somewhat) but never civil court so like I actually have no idea how this works and also have gotten nowhere with the people I've been able to even get a call back. Rent is due on the 1st so I have time. Thank you ecto!!!

yea act five let us know if we can provide material help.

i just wanna add that the fund is running relatively dry now. we're not in the red or near the red, so i'm not going to start DMing everyone who said they were willing to donate, but anyone who wants to send to hpncharity@gmail.com (with a note with your username) would be appreciated. i've been trying to find the right point between not taking money we don't need and being able to provide money when people need it and so far we're good but it's always a balancing act.

also if you're one of the people who has been a huge donor, don't take that post to imply that you need to donate again. some of you have already contributed astounding amounts and it's all gone to good places so far. i'm mostly referring to people who asked me to donate earlier and i turned away because we were in the green
