Boy, that sure was a year, wasn't it?

Good stuff:
- Got to spend it with my ‘Bootscreature. (No, I’m not done gushing. I may never be done gushing.)
- Finished and posted a chapter fic for the first time, cowrote three more with aforementioned ‘creature.
- Wrote three short stories.
- Wrote some porn.
- Cooked a lot of delicious foods.
- Took Python, CSS, and game design courses on Coursera. (Javascript is ongoing.)

Bad stuff:
- Failed utterly at Employability.
- Did very little art.
- Only wrote three short stories, despite lots of free time this year, and sold none of them.
- My country continues careening down the road to Have You Lost Your Fucking Mindville, and my dad is going full Fox Geezer on me.

In the coming months I want to pull together a more decent portfolio that shows I can write, design and code, but I’m not sure where to start. I also want to pick up my novel again and actually finish it by the end of the year. I just don’t want to spend another year flailing around uselessly and getting crappy retail job after crappy retail job. (Though right now I’d love a crappy retail job. XD)
  • You did not fail. You simply found another way that did not work ;) You just need to keep trying and find a way that works. Don't give up. Is there some sort of Job Club anywhere near you that could help you build your portfolio more effectively? What about a video portfolio - part interview, part presentation of what you can do? Or a website? You could code it yourself, and there are any number of low-cost hosting companies out there :)

    Besides, it's not like you're doing nothing with your time ;)

    May 2016 bring you hope, success and continued love xxx
