money (-) help needed 

I haven't been getting as many commissions as I've needed to pay for bills and the council has jacked my rent even higher. The next rent payment (~£110) is tomorrow and I am unable to pay it.

(I also have £200 in bills this month I haven't been able to pay either x.x)

If you have something you'd like to commission me to do, now would be a good time:

If not and you have some money to spare, you can donate:

looking for work, boost appreciated 

Hello Fedi can you get me hired?

I’m looking for #jobs, preferably as #contractor, in #translation. I do Chinese—English and vice versa.

I have experience in translating news articles, political opinion pieces, research papers, technical documentation, and poetry. While working for a news website, I also took on additional fact-checking as part of my job in translation.

I have no trouble tackling the most dense jargons of theoretical physics, nor massaging the rhyme and metre of a verse in order to evoke the original‘s aesthetics.

I believe strongly in cultural sensitivity and empathy in a translator’s work.

In addition to English, I’m also learning French, Russian, and Sanskrit for fun.

Under the tag #VerseThursday you can find some of my translations. Be warned, there are gay stuff.

I am currently employed full-time, but I am looking for additional sources of income and satisfaction.

DMs are ok, thanxx

like a *really* hard time. lots of errors on the signal levels page, keeps dropping connection every 15 min or so

my cable modem seems to be having a hard time today

sometimes i want to write a random word/sound but then worry about whether or not it has an existing slang meaning somewhere

i dreamt there was this cute fluffy winged horse, all black and the size of a large puppy, in an abandoned church. cute but also threatening for some reason

anyone else watching ? i am loving it. a “walking with dinosaurs” with updated science and graphics. i love the feathery velociraptors!
