But I’m not sure how to post something for myself that others wouldn’t bother reading. So I have to figure out how to share this information too. Angling it in a way that others would find useful, I think.
I worked at the restaurant yesterday as a host. It’s not something I want to do honestly. I want to have enough people to work with for my business to not have to seat a person.
Or text the person who is the manager to see if I can start serving, too.
It’s frustrating because I know that I am more, but it is exactly what is keeping me afloat. (Deep breath).
Will I make it?
Well, random monologues aside, this is at least what I’ve got today. I’m still going as of December 27th, 2019. I will keep going as of this minute.
So this is the self-study part that I worked on yesterday. I’ll share because it reduces my anxiety and also can help another person. I don’t know why it matters, but it’s nice to show goodwill. It feels good.
With that being said, and with a little sadness in my heart that I will work through, here are 65 resources that I’ll have to delve further into. And that you might find useful, too.

Now, let me move onto the next poem I have to write for today before going into the Copywork et cetera.
I was only scheduled for three days this week. What will I do?
Well, let me publish this. Also, I’m working on the photos today too for the modeling post I’m working on. I want to share this too.
They were inspired by a little Naomi, but more Linda. And a little Tatjana Patitz. I tried to find the looks online for you, but that will have to wait for now. Too much time right now for that.
