passing the turing test since 2008. enby ace trying to survive capitalism. photos, design, development, and all things creative. gives good advice. warning: contains infinite love. ---
i wanna create cool things and remove the giant thundercloud from above my head while doing so. currently, my family is going through one financial crisis after another, and i would appreciate even just a few dollars to help fund my more creative endeavors.
* i've previously done some concert photography (photo.trwnh.com) and in my opinion i think the photos are pretty rad. i'd like to do more photography and maybe afford something better than a years-old used pocket camera that i bought for a couple hundred bucks... one day.
* i've previously tried streaming retro and classic video games (twitch.tv/thetriggerofsol), but had to stop when my 10-year-old desk literally fell apart on me. i'm currently setup-less, using a single monitor and with nowhere to put a crt tv and some retro consoles.
* i've done web and graphic design (no showcase yet) but my 6-year-old motherboard died and i had to upgrade my computer at the cost of several hundred dollars out-of-pocket for the new motherboard, new compatible processor, and new compatible ddr4 ram... and it's not like i had that much money in my pocket in the first place.
* speaking of money, i'm trying to wrap up two college degrees (for biomedical engineering and computer science), and i'm struggling to pay for the thousands of dollars in extra credit-hours due to my full-tuition scholarship only lasting 4 years. over the past 4 years, i've been taking an average of 22 hours per semester instead of the "full-time" 15, and i have just 2 or 3 classes left, but those will cost about $3000-4000 out-of-pocket, which is straining my already very empty pockets.
i would appreciate any help possible with getting back on my feet and getting my life in order, because i'm in pretty deep and need a lifeline.
