    Gandhalfit the writing project is an attempt at that... and a lot of the jobs I'm applying to are remote customer service. But most of the "make money online" opportunities seem to be either MLM/Direct Sales/Pyramid scheme nonsense that I just refuse to support (my least favorite are the postings that look like a legit job offer and turn out to be fucking Primerica or Cutco) or "spend 3 hours trying to qualify for surveys and maybe we will pay you 1$" (those I sometimes spend a few hrs clicking at just bc wtf else am I doing and maybe I can justify a nice coffee out).

    (Obligatory - if you somehow are one of the 0.5% of people who manage to make actual money doing MLM stuff or even the 5%-10% that at least break evenish, awesome for you, but I do not have the kind of social network that would work to create the downlines necessary to do so... or the willingness to try to get people into my downline knowing they will probably spend more money than they make just based on the numbers of it. One of my aunts made $$$$ on Avon back in the day but the shit she had to do to do so.... yeah no. That is not the sort of sales environment that I think is acceptable, I can be mercenary when I need to be but I draw the line at predatory, and nobody makes actual money in those companies without being predatory.)

    Today my exercise was fucking walking home w 40ish lbs of groceries bc I whiped the hell out (shoelace caught on opposite boot) and had a net loss of 5 eggs, abt half my little baby tomatoes, a container of coffee cream, and 2 of my grocery bags (they are going to fucking stink no matter what, egg in one and cream in the other, I am not trying to wash them) but, aside from a blood blister on my middle finger, some superficial scrapes on palms of both hands and what is going to be a wicket bruise on my knee I'm ok. And it was a proper "glasses went flying" whipe out, so I feel somewhat lucky I did not get actually injured. So I'll take it, but I'm too grouchy to work out properly now >.>

      Ugh, hesitated to put a like for the wipeout, but still walked, and with a heavy load, so that counts! Hugs.

          I know, similar things here too. Apparently there's a legit way to do it, I thought you might know a bit about it because of your years in CS. Affiliated marketing or something. I don't know if it's considered MLM but you could get free courses on youtube or even udemy (I know because they keep popping up after I searched "how to make more money from home...") and, IDK, something. Good luck with the job hunt anyway

            Oof - I'm glad you didn't get too injured with your wipe out! I don't blame you for calling it a day after that!

                      Glad that you got away with minor injuries. And all the best to finding some reliable, honest remote income option. Keep your head up!

                        ... my knee is sore. I did a bare minimum to keep streak today.

                        But. I wrote 5k words and got my novella off to my beta readers/artist.

                        If you're on fb, my pen name has a page.

                              My knee is still unhappy.

                              It is not visibly bruised (which confuses the fuck out of me bc I get bruised when I'm not even hurt lol) but it feels bruised. Is unhappy if I poke it, and is basically just reminding me it exists otherwise. Walking/standing/sitting don't agrivate it (unless sitting involves forgetting not to cross my legs or cat sitting directly on it) but sit/stand transition is noticeable.

                              So I'm taking some ibuprofen in case something is inflamed in there and being careful. Fuck our fucking system here, bc rly knees are complex and I wouldn't mind showing a dr but I don't have thousands of dollars lying around atm.

                              Just a walk today.
