PLANS FOR THE MONTH
For me, January is going to be a slow month all about contemplation. I’ve got a few things and options to think about, things that concern my future and finances. Since I’m still looking for a full-time job, but still have bills to pay, I have to think about some alternatives that will tie me over for the three months before I come back from Europe, because honestly, what company wants to hire someone full time, knowing they will lose them for a month? So, this month is really going to be looking into alternate ways of payment. So far for ideas, all I have is Patreon. And Patreon requires a bunch of people wanting to join and help, which, I don’t really have the following for, so we’ll see how things go.
