Hello, friends and followers!
If you read my personal posts, you’ll know my family and I are struggling very much financially. I am doing my best to not ask my mom for money for any purpose, so I’m trying to make money in any way I can to support myself.
That being said! You can visit my bandcamp here to purchase my original music, but that’s not the point of this post!
I’m opening up song commissions!I can sing basically any song you want me to, but I can’t guarantee that I will be able to back myself up with guitar/instrumental.
All commissions include an mp3 with track art drawn by my lovely artist, Cam. (Whom I literally can’t thank enough. <3)
A Cappella Cover - $7 (Examples)
Cover w/ Instrumental From YouTube - $10 (Examples)
Cover w/ Guitar - $15 (Examples)
For original music, the price will depend on how long/complex you want the song to be. Here is some very general pricing.
A Cappella Original (2-3 minutes) - Starting at $7 (Examples)
A Capella Original (3-4 minutes) - Starting at $10
($3 more per extra minute)
Original w/ Guitar (2-3 minutes) - Starting at $10 (Examples)
Original w/ Guitar (3-4 minutes) - Starting at $15
($5 more per extra minute)
Thank you very much for taking this into consideration, and if you are interested in commissioning me, I accept paypal and can be reached at either my ask box or at samantha.jean.sf@gmail.com!
It would mean a lot to me if you could signal boost if you can’t buy! <3

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"Talking?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.
