But what sucks still is that I have to go pickup the bird at the airport if I get the brother, so this whole cost of the bird has risen a lot. The gas,tolls and part shipping is $$$$$$$.
NYC/NJ tolls are $$$$$$. Figured if it goes to plan and I get the bird back from her the total cost of the birds gonna be in the 700 dollar range. Compared to the original 400+gas+tolls that I had originally factored in.
I dont' have much stuff so I did have to sell my headphones I loved to cover the extra cost. Right now I'm trying to figure out some other way to make money but my mental health is always in a shit show.
I was looking into making some personal jewelry or art with peoples bird feathers if they wanted it, but I don't know if that's even possible. With the cost of shipping being so high not sure any of my products would even warrant their price.
I hope all this turns out fine in the long run but I can't lie and I'm a bit sad over this entire thing. A lot of people messaged me over instagram and on this forum with the warning signs but I just didnt' want to listen cause I just want a friend so bad...like just so bad.The loneliness is killer and man, having that green rump even for a those few days, even though it was pretty bad by the 2nd day it was just such an incredible feeling.
In the end I'm not surprised, my whole life has been filled with bad stuff happening immediately after something good so when I wasn't shocked with anything.
But lets hope for the best. I hope it all works out in the end ok.
