Ok, so yesterday I lost my freelance copywriting job . . . it happens. Moving forward. I will try my hand at doing some various freelance articles here and there while I look for another well-paying one that pays by the hour. It took me a year of serious hunting before I found that last one. . . It won't take long before the threat of being homeless will be looming over my head, so onward and upward!
I'm adding an URL to one article that published today. It isn't the greatest, but I took it from one of my assignments, and will do a few more to get me off to a running, but not great, start. I can take time for improvements soon.
MK and I have both been hit with a cold/flu-type of bug that lasted about a week, but we are both left with a pesky congested cough that just won't go away. (The week in bed is the final thing that clenched it for the copywriting layoff -- I got in only less than half of the required hours, therefore I did not fulfill the contract requirements.)
We pulled up all the rest of the carrots and got only a few that still had not grown much over two inches long. We put them in our homemade chicken soup and enjoyed them. So, no carrots put away for the winter. We picked the rest of the green tomatoes from the back yard today.
Financial Aid has been cut back so drastically for college, and they raised the fees again this year. It is so expensive per credit hour now that it is ridiculous. I've wanted to stick to my guns and graduate from SMWC in about a year, but if they keep raising fees and financial aid keeps getting lower, I may have to consider graduating elsewhere, or quitting. But, I'm pretty stubborn . . . we'll see.
I need a plan.
