I feel like such a fake.
This weekend I was a guest speaker at a Schwarzie workshop titled “be a boss, girl” where I spoke about turning your hobby and passion into a business and being your own boss. All hunky dory and swell and what not except that today I sit here crying a little with my stomach in knots cause this month wasn’t banked properly and there are outstanding payments which means I don’t quite cover my debit orders let alone the R1500 eskom bill I got.
So what the fuck do I do now? They don’t teach these things in school. Then again I’ve been in this situation before, fuck I’ve almost had my car repossessed before (not fun) and I’ve had my electricity shut off a few times as well but really, this is the shittiest situation to be in. I need electricity to work and I need work to afford electricity. It’s a really crappy cycle.
I’m in it now but I can change it. If you’re reading this and you have ANYTHING you want designed or illustrated PLEASE send me a mail. I hate being desperate but that’s the joy of not getting maintenance and having to try succeed on your own. I think if it was just me it would be fine cause I don’t mind coffee for breakfast lunch and dinner but the minion isn’t so much into it and prefers real food which means groceries had to be bought which leaves debit orders short. Like I said, kak situation.
That’s my little plea and sob story today. Hopefully I’ll be able to put up a post tomorrow thanking everyone for their awesomeness (wishful thinking I know).
