Hard to believe that it's been a month (plus) since my final day in the newsroom. Even better still, I finished July out nice and strong with three places to invoice for my work. The amounts came NOWHERE near what I pulled at my job when you take health insurance, pretax everything and the 401(k) match into consideration, but I'm fretting not. The point is I worked some. The point is I earned something. The point is I did what I needed to do and that's keep busy and keep going. This is the smallest bit of money I've earned in ages, but it's the most valuable, I think.
