Hi there! My name is Lucía but you can call me Rydi if you want ;D I'm mainly a digital artist but I also try traditional art every now and then. I'm very friendly so don't be afraid to poke me and talk to me !
I'm 26 years old and I live in Spain, in Nature's Paradise! I've been a member of deviantART for 6 years and in all this time I've grown as an artist and as a person. On December 23rd 2009 I humbly received `Seniority and only seven days later, I was given the chance to be a Community Volunteer for the Fan Art Gallery along with aunjuli, my inspiration in life, and elicoronel16 the most blisstastic person ever. TommyGK has been my Partner in Crime and also my King in FanArtDom for many years now, he's my precious brother and one of the most important people in my life.
After a long year nurturing the community, I returned to being a regular Senior. On November 27th 2012, the Community Relations Team welcomed me back as Manga and Anime Community Volunteer . My partners in crime were Damaged927 and Gwendolyn12, two sweetlicious people! Now, a year later, I've returned to being a friendly yet grumpy cane-shaking senior again!
Don't be afraid to talk to me! I don't bite, I just eat you
For those who don't know me, my name is Saber. I am a 39 (nearly 40) year old man. I was born in Phoenix, Arizona as a little girl...and moved to Nebraska when my dad's job transferred him, then laid everyone off. It wasn't that long after that I realized I was transgender...and was lucky enough to have a supportive family.
Dad passed away seven years ago, and for a long time it was just my mom and me. I have several mental problems and a few physical ones, problems that make it difficult to even leave my house sometimes. But Mom always took care of me, and I took care of the house and anything else she needed me to do. She was the number one most important person in my life. She kept me sane...as sane as I could get.
I lost her to cancer in December, and it's devastated me. No day goes by when I don't wish she was still beside me. I live with my two cats and Mom's one cat, who has a lot of health issues. But my cats have kept me from doing something stupid...if I lost them, I don't know what I'd do.
Since she's passed I have been trying to get SS disability, which seems to be impossible for people like me--it's easy to think that they don't really care if we live or not. I've also been trying to find a job I can handle, with little luck. It's come down tho this...begging for help.
I need to pay my rent and utitilities, and have run out of money. I have SNAP benefits, and so won't go hungry (at least not yet), but I might lose damn near everything else if I can't figure something out.
My adopted sister helps me, in fact she owns the duplex we both live in, but there's a chance we might lose it. We've been so happy here...and she in particular has spent hours and hours making her front yard into a gorgeous garden. It'd kill us to lose it all.
Money will be used for rent and utilities, and to feed my cats. I can't really say how grateful I am for anyone who donates, because there aren't words for it. All I know is that I would love to work towards making this home paid for so I never have to worry about losing it. But for now, keeping what I have is the most important thing.
Love you guys. Help spread the word!
