    Today I got a Skype message from my major client.

    All the marketing work Ive been doing for him has been put on hold for the time being since his company is being sued. He is unsure whether I will be able to continue this work after the legal dispute is resolved.

    Ive spent the couple last years (college years) writing articles part time. It was tough work and not the most rewarding. I felt as though finding this marketing client was meant to be/my calling, a reward for all the hard work I had spent writing articles for $1/100 words as well as my own failed ventures.
    Only a week ago I was in a comfortable place. I was making $600-700 a week for a couple hours a day of work. As a bachelor this isnt too shabby. It also gave me a chunk to reinvest in IM ventures.

    My part time teaching job on the weekend just barely covers my rent. Moreover, my savings will only pay for August and September's rent.

    Im trying to stay optimistic but I just feel completely crushed as if the world is out to get me. I guess it's back to grinding out articles but I cant help but feel pissed off that this shit won't give me substantial cash to reinvest in websites etc.

    Im sorry if I come across as incoherent and/or immature but I really need to blow off some steam.
