Things have been stupid busy, but despite things being stupid busy--business wise, I'm still just barely keeping myself out of being broke. Recent vet bills with my dog (around $4000), a new computer ($1300), and my chronic pain meds ($340/month), let's face it--my financial situation is not the best. Even with the boatload of work--I didn't even have enough money to go grocery shopping. ~laughs~ Never thought the words "starving artist" would apply to me--because my work covers everything from advertising, graphic design, flyers, wedding/family/baby photography, photomanipulation and even more traditional art (painting/drawing tattoo designs, etc). Thankful I have good friends (who randomly, despite me not saying a word), swung by over the past week, bringing me food otherwise I think this whole not having money for groceries would have been a whole lot worse than it could have been.
Am super grateful, for super awesome friends. <3
I'm really quite content and only have one client tomorrow -- but we are -bartering- instead of him paying me for work.
Whaddya know, "Will Work For Food" is my motto right now! lol
