I will say again… please consider helping me out with any donation…. I have Venmo. I’m themixtape on Venmo. I have Paypal. My Paypal email is info AT oustedproductions DOT net. I have my GoFundMe fundraiser, still. $132 raised with a $1,000 goal. Please help. PLEASE. Thank you.
So, here we are. Yep. More water damage. This time, from my 3rd floor roommate. He apparently noticed his (my) A/C window unit was leaking a bit, and put a padded envelope under it (to catch some of the drips?)…… well, it basically just diverted the drips right to his carpet, and soaked the carpet pad underneath, and water collected from the carpet pad, into my second floor roommate’s ceiling. She came up to tell me that her ceiling was bulging (photo above), and it was obviously water damage from something above her.
We popped the bulge, and obviously water came out… yellow/bubbly water (kind of looked like piss)… well, it was clean water, from the A/C leaking. The question is.. how long was the 3rd floor roommate’s A/C leaking for? Today? Days? A week or more? No way to tell.
So, that’s her ceiling as of an hour or so ago (photo above). Hopefully it won’t be much worse, tomorrow. Obviously we’re keeping a close eye on it.
As for the upstairs room…. we pulled the carpet back, from the rear wall of the room… the pad underneath was soaking wet, as mentioned above. Peeled up the wet stuff, bagged it up, and threw it away (there’s no saving carpet padding)…. we have the carpet kind of airing out, with boxes underneath it here and there (shoeboxes and other boxes propping it up so it can fully air out), with a fan blowing directly on it… it’s about 12 to 15 feet by 2 or 3 feet of wet carpet. Unreal. Unreal, the carelessness…. maybe I should add two stipulations to the House Rules of my place… “1. Please let us know immediately if you start a fire” and “2. Please let us know immediately if you notice water dripping onto and inside your carpet, and please don’t put a padded envelope there, to catch (or even divert) the dripping.”
Seriously, my luck has been pissing me off, royally, lately. From the financial stress to the flood damage to the plumber work…. I’m really tired of all this shitty shit happening. And I’m tired of going (and fucking remaining) broke.
On the bright side, the house feels more peaceful since a few of my roommates moved out fully this week, and last week. So much to say… SO much…. but… main focus of this blog is the house/flood stuff.
I’m tired as hell. I should sleep.
I need a break. I really need a god damn break, and some shit to just chill out and be nothing… I want life to not be a busy emergency for a solid week.
Friends, family… please help me with any donation…. any and all. PLEASE HELP. Thanks.
