I'm reflecting on my past and future, finding myself spiraling into a pit of dismay. Decisions lately have been made... well, more forced. My health hasn't been the best and it's affected my income. It truly is much more expensive to be poor. Things like overdrafts, late fees, penalties, even fines for having to let one's insurance drop because it's a choice for either that or rent.... It's going to cost about $3k in total to get out of this hole completely and my last check was $260 for two weeks' work.
YouTube has decided to trim the herd, and I'm coming on the chopping block and soon losing my revenue there. I realize I haven't been as active with that as I should have been, but I've been trying to push out videos at least somewhat regularly now. I'm over 300 subscribers short, and YouTube hasn't made it easy because they have revamped their search engine to favor already-monetized videos that meet their upcoming criteria first over those who are losing their status.
I'm not going to quit though. I'm going to find a way to supplement my income, somehow.
