Wow! I am so lucky to have friends like you all. I didn't think I'd receive this much funding by the end of the campaign, and to see your help take me this far in only a couple of days has been remarkable. At the time of my writing this, I'm now 12 percent funded.
Thanks to you, I have enough funds for a new computer monitor! Since a computer is higher priority, though, I'm going to wait on the monitor and see how we're doing when the campaign reaches its end. I'd much rather use your contributions on a new computer capable of running the programs I need.
I'll continue to keep you updated as the campaign progresses. I'll tell you all about my spending plan -- in detail. I'll tell you a bit about my comic, a bit about my work, and a lot about me. I'll open up about my struggle, both past and present, and about the wonderful people in my life who have kept me going even when times were at their darkest. I'll tell you all about that, so check in from time to time and see how we're doing! And if you have any questions, please, ask. I want to be as transparent as possible with you. I want you to be a part of my life -- after all, you're helping me live it!
