it's not even a matter of "am I good at stuff" or "am I qualified for jobs"; it's mainly the legibility to employers side of it that dooms me I think. no one actually believes I want to work in a newsroom or that I could possibly do that after years of freelancing! no one actually wants to pay me a livable wage for my labor! and I don't know how to change myself to fix this!

This is a hometown instance run by Sam and Ingrid, for some friends.
