I'm in a small park with my dog and the stars. How amazing is that.

Hey, listen.

I've been unemployed for the last few months, recovering from intense burnout. I'm in the process of looking for jobs, but realistically, I'm very close to being broke.

I'm trying my best to live lean and come up with some kind of income...but to be honest, I need help. I've got only 400 bucks to my name right now, and bills are going to cause major damage.

I'm trying to work my way up to $1210 to cover rent after the next month. While I don't at all expect that kind of money to just be handed to me, I'm not confident that I'm going to be able to get a job in time to cover it.

My biggest costs right now are servers. I'm running We Distribute and VidCommons entirely out of pocket with no donations. This probably is why neither have been updated very frequently in recent months, but if they're to continue operation, I need at least 80 bucks to cover it. If I can't, both of those projects will be on ice for a while, with their sites taken down.

If anyone would like to help me financially during this trying time, here's some links for donations. I hate having to do this, but I'm trying to survive.

**Singapore to ban domestic elephant ivory trade**

"From September 2021, Singapore will ban local sales of ivory, removing a key end-market for the valuable material. Some 100 African elephants are estimated to be killed each day by poachers who want their tusks."

I've reached a point of no return. A point of nothing matters. A point where I feel stuck.

An official report for the Dutch government concluded:

“(Microsoft Office) systematically collects data on a large scale ... covertly, without informing people. … Microsoft does not offer any choice with regard to the amount of data, or possibility to switch off the collection.”

Don't use Microsoft Office, use LibreOffice instead 👍

It's free, open and you can get it here:
