You should know I'm a big deal in the Resistance.

I'd like to make my living as a travelling GM, bringing everything needed to play tabletop RPGs to people, hell maybe all over the world someday! Right now everything is still in the planning stages but I wonder if anyone thinks it would be worthwhile to set up a (I know a bad choice but it's the first one that comes to mind) Go Fund Me or please recommend a similar but better type of fundraising ap if you think that would be a good thing to invest time in as I grow this business.

Trust my rage

patreon is a thing that lets you give money to artists you want to support. I am all into ASMR videos and it seem like they all have patreon accounts.

Things I never thought I would have to navigate as a business owner; how do return to work after essentially shutting down for a pandemic, how to clear worksites to remain safe, how to deal with jobsites that might be in the middle of looting zone during a time of civil unrest.

This reminds me a lot of the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini . He writes about trying to keep his art and studio going during the bubonic plague, during war and civil unrest. The good news, Drew, is that I'm pretty sure this makes you a Renaissance Man. The bad news is that, lovely art aside, the Renaissance kinda sucked to live through.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Hey, self-employed people, you should do this:

That's great that more funds are available! (I'm still working more than 40 hours a week and feel like I should just leave that grant money for people who need it.)

Unfortunately, it seems to be out of money for the second time. I hope they re-up it.
