If you can boost, that'd be great: I'm still looking for work (Can't seem to find anything and it's killing me) I do freelance work and I'm looking for a job that's tech-adjacent at least.

I am compent with SQL, PHP, HTML, CSS, Python(mostly 3, but I can do 2.7) and UI/UX Design. Also good at research, and non-fiction writing

Freelance or Full-time or Part-time work is fine. Need something.

I keep trying to read that “what football will be like in the future” piece but I’m always on my phone. And I can’t.

Initially it’s like whoa what’s happening, and then oh, chapter 1 is made of calendars, cool. K, this has got something going on, I’ll do pinch-zoom sure.

Oh. no.
