A bunch of stuff is fixed or on hold but a bunch of stuff is still stressing me out:

  • I decided to stick with the current job for now. It's pretty terrible but the schedule lines up with what I'm trying to do with NIFE and the other business. Or at least it will once I get unburied again.

  • The project for another site that should lure some people here is on hold indefinitely. No rush or anything, but would still like to do it eventually someday.

  • Both my tickets are paid for. One was an absolute hassle because I had to pay it in the mail, USPS didn't deliver it right and it sat for 7 days while I'm stressing about coming up with a plan to drive 200 miles to deal with it with a bad car. But everything's good now.

    Stuff that's still messing with me:

  • Switched to working nights which is wreaking havoc on my sleep schedule and ability to get things done on my off days. Will probably just take some adaptation.

  • My car is in terrible shape. Need to find a new one asap. Got some money saved up at least.

  • Need to find another place to live because my mom and I have opposite sleep schedules and she sleeps way too light so I basically don't have off days while living there (can't do anything at night). The current plan is to get my own place and get my dad to pay rent because he needs a place to go too. That should let me live elsewhere and afford a car payment too.

    Hopefully things will straighten out eventually. I think this has been the absolute roughest patch of time in my entire life and it's lasted such a damn long time too.

    If you don't live very far from your work, might I suggest investing in an electric car now? Maintenance is less than half that of a conventional car, and electricity is much cheaper than gasoline. Plus, electric cars typically have smoother handling. And all states are eligible for a $7,500 income tax credit from an electric car. So if the car costs $30,000, you're effectively only paying for $22,500 for a car that doesn't need gas or much maintenance.

    My next car will definitely be electric. DEFINITELY!

    Kudos to you for still keeping this place afloat while real life is dragging on. Keep it up man.

    You should really think about hiring an unpaid IT/website creation intern to help out with your projects.

    I like the general idea of electric cars but they're still waaaaaay outside my budget. Maybe in 10-15 years they'll be more viable. Also the infrastructure for them right now is terrible unless you live on the west coast or in a major city.

    I wouldn't mind hiring some people eventually (NIFE is honestly set up in such a way to support multiple developers) but at the moment GTX0 work is mostly just a fun hobby that I look forward to spending more time with. Someday.
