I've had my iPhone 4s for 3 years (and yeah, I know. Steve Jobs is the devil and Apple products are shit, har har. I also own a MacBook Pro, and owning both products was somewhat out of my control as my brother bought me my phone as a going away gift when I started grad school, and the MacBook was a requirement of the school I just graduated from). 

Anyway I digress. I've never had any problems with it. Never got it wet. Never damaged it in any way, shape or form. Never had to take it in for repairs. Well, last Thursday I was just about to head out for the day when I noticed that my charging cable wasn't working (I plugged my phone into my laptop to sync some new music to it). So I thought, "welp time to go pick a new one." I'd had the cable for about a year and the $8 knockoff 30 pin chargers have a relatively short lifespan (but then again so does the Apple version -_- my original cable committed suicide just 2 months after I got the damn phone in 2012 and there is NO WAY I'm spending $40 on a charge/sync cable). I went down to Walgreens, a 2 mile walk from my house, picked up a new cord and toddled back on home. 

I was planning on just eating lunch, charging up my now 20% battery phone, and heading off for other errands. So I plug it in and nothing happens. Naturally I think "GREAT, I got a dud." Luckily I hadn't tossed the receipt just yet so I put my shoes back on and went back to Walgreens. I proceeded to spend 20 minutes in the store testing cable after cable and NONE of them would work. :cries: It was at that moment I realized that my phone battery had decided to just give up on life altogether. 

Now, my phone is not a luxury item (although I do occasionally use it for music and social media). I don't have a land line, or reliable wifi. And over the past year I used it almost exclusivley for work, and now that I'm looking for new work I NEED A MEANS OF CONTACT. 

I got sunburnt all over my neck chest and shoulders from my back and forth trek to Walgreens (I was so upset over the phone suicide that I forgot to put on sunblock). My AppleCare (which is basically health insurance for your apple products) ran out a week ago. And I'm broke except for my credit card which I did NOT want to start using. 

Anti Complaint: I was able to get an appointment at the Apple Store and I REALLY hope they can fix it and that it won't cost a shitton of money I don't' have. :|
Tutorial: How to Install Vinyl - Part One by Xadrea
Tutorial: How to Install Vinyl - Part One
soooooo, this was many months in the making (mostly because I didn't have the time to actually sit down and work on it :XD:) This is PART ONE. That means the actual installation instructions will happen in the next installment of this tutorial series! The photos I had of the installation weren't that great or informative sooooo I'm going to redo them and shoot some pics of a different vinyl install :D

Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 26. I have an MFA in painting from the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (2015). I have a BFA in painting and drawing (art history minor) from the University of Akron (2012). I'm an illustrator and freelance artist ^ ^My favorite color is pink, and I think muffins are the cutest food ever!

Besides painting, I love printmaking and I plan on eventually owning a silkscreen to produce prints outside of the studio!
Lastly, I block trolls and overall mean people, so be warned! ;)

Hi peeps! I'm honing in on 100 likes for my artist page on FB and I need your help :D (note: this is NOT me asking you to help me out with a pageview/like whoring type deal. This is me continuing to market & promote myself as an independent artist) I CANNOT get clients without promotion (and neither can you for that matter :lol: ).

That being said, if you have social media links send them my way! I love helping promote my artist friends! I will list mine below for your convenience:
