Vida’s Moving Out and Debt Payment Fund (goodies and commissions available!)

Update posted by Vida Cruz On Nov 10, 2019

It's been a busy and emotionally exhausting month over here, which may explain why I haven't updated.

Even before hitting the funding goal, I was able to move out of my house and into a unit just across my office. Things were great for a while, but unfortunately, I have to move back home. For the 3 weeks I lived in the unit, I experienced allergies: sneezing, coughing, fever, nosebleeds. It might be haunted as well, for I once dreamt of a demon trying to throw me off the bed and then woke up in the middle of the night to a nosebleed and a fever. And last week, when I passed by the unit for lunch after a few days of living in the house where I grew up, I heard that the bathroom faucet was fully running. I wish I was kidding. I really wanted this unit to work out, but some things just aren't for me. At least I know what to look for next time.

In any case, if you donated to my fund, thank you! I will be handling your rewards shortly and will get in contact with you soon. If you ordered a physical copy of my book, good news! The third print run arrived in Manila last week. I'll just be trying to figure out the logistics of shipping to different countries.

If you'd like the ebook version, you can send me $10 at https://www.paypal.me/vidacruz and I will email you a pdf copy :)

Bye for now!
