this is a weird post to make at 12:15 am on a sunday morning but basically at the end of january i had to quit my job and file a human rights complaint with my former employer and it was just a shitty, scary time because i didn’t have another job waiting for me and i only had enough saved up for a couple of months but honestly like, in the past month and a half i’ve started freelancing again and getting paid real human money to write about music and tv shows that i care about, tomorrow i get to interview one of my favourite musicians of all time and i pitched that and set it up all by myself, i put out a chapbook of my writing and it peaked at #3 on amazon’s young adult lgbt chart, i finished revising 54,000 words of my manuscript and i’m working on the ending now, and now i’m in the third stage of interviews for a wonderful job that is exactly and precisely what i want to do (fingers crossed, everyone), and my mental health has improved so, so, so much, and i’ve managed to keep myself afloat financially in the meantime with a part-time job and freelance writing gigs, and i couldn’t have done aaaaaaaaaany of that if i’d just stuck it out at my old job and spent my evenings sending out resumes and hoping for something better to come along, so what i’ve learned in all of this is that if someone is treating me badly, getting out of that situation asap and focusing all my energy on taking care of myself is always the right thing to do
Omg I know you're writing leading suspects for pbg, but I feel so spoiled! I love it so much. It's been hilarious and the relationship development is basically what I live for. That and Peeta freaking out over Katniss getting hurt. I know you said the chapters would be slowing down, which is understandable, but each chapter literally brightens my day. Before I even read it, I'm smiling!
