I'm back.

Doing... not too good. I dropped out of the university and effectively stuck in a limbo of sorts. I have very little money left - enough to buy me another week's worth of scarce food and not nearly enough to pay the rent. Right now, I need to raise $200 (monthly rent) just to be able to stay where I am. The landlord is not the most compassionate person, so if I don't have the money, I'm out onto the street.

This whole situation makes my depression explode. I feel a lot of things right now. Mosty - fear of failure. I feel like I will have to accept that I'm a failure because I can't find any income because I'm a failure because I can't find any income... Recursive, reductive nonsense clouding my head.

But Hubski is a good place. I've had my share of conflicts here, but people have always been appreciative, intelligent and eloquent about their thoughts and feelings. I appreciate that. That is something I'd like to have more of in my life right now: a good company.

There's no job in Russia that could possibly yield me $200 in two weeks (barring drug trafficking), so I'm looking for freelance options or full-time online work abroad. If you know anyone who needs

- Russian < > English translation, interpreting or tutoring,

- writing (of most sorts): fiction, newspapers, blogs etc.

- screenplays (or similar plot/dialogue/worldbuilding writing)

- web design and/or front-end development

please let me know.

I think doing homework and essays for students might be the most lucrative if you need quick cash

ThatFanficGuy  ·  201 days ago  ·  link  ·  

That would've been good option, yeah.

Unfortunately, both schools and unis are almost over here. It's exam time, both state-governed and university. I don't think I can be of help there, let alone get paid for it.

Is your English good enough to write essays for American/asian students?

ThatFanficGuy  ·  201 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I believe so. Any particular place I can find those students-in-need?

Hey man welcome back

I know we're deep in discussion on Reddit but I'm glad you're back here as well. Feel free to PM me if you want to vent about things.

Mind if I continue the reply here?

Foveaux  ·  201 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Yeah go for it mate. There was a lot to unpack from what I recall, take your time.

Guru is a good place to get freelance work of various sorts, but apart from wishing you all the best, recommending it is the only thing I can do. Good luck!

Thank you. I'll check it out.
