ambersweet: Go ahead! Panic! Do it now and avoid the June rush! (Go ahead! Panic!)
I'm in this halfway point where some stuff is packed, other stuff can't be packed, yet and even more stuff is going to be sold or donated or otherwise gotten rid of. My house is in total chaos, and it's driving me nuts. I'm a fairly tidy person, and having everything piled up haphazardly is just frustrating.

[personal profile] finch hasn't heard about the job yet and we're still looking for a place to live, and for that I blame Mercury Retrograde. Fortunately it ends RIGHT before we're scheduled to leave, so I'm sure all that will come through at the last minute, but THE SOONER THE BETTER, PLEASE.

On top of everything else, one of the tires decided that now was an EXCELLENT time to delaminate and go flat, so we had a surprise $215 expense for new tires. This is following the surprise new battery we had to buy last month; this has not been a good summer for my car. (Apparently my car is weirdly configured in every possible area, and every single replacement part I've had to buy has been unnecessarily expensive. This, of course, includes the tires.)

It's summer, which doesn't exactly make you think of handknits, and I already have several knitting commissions in process, so I don't want to take any more (unless you're willing to be REALLY patient or you want something I can make in a day or two), but I'd like to do some fundraising if possible.

So here are some things I can do:

- Tarot readings
- Reiki healings (I am a Third Class Master/Teacher; I can also do attunements if you're local/between me and Portland/within reasonable distance of Portland)
- Writing (Mostly non-fiction. My blog is here and you could sponsor an essay! I can talk at length about feminism, social justice, literature, queer issues, domestic violence, and general geeky topics. I don't want to promise fic because it's been sort of erratic, but if you've got something you want to try, you can drop me a line and I'll see if I get inspired.)
- Proofreading/editing/smoothing of sentences (I have a degree in it!)
- Offer suggestions or recommendations on how to get started knitting, spinning (spindle or wheel), and weaving. I mostly knit small things, such as socks and fingerless gloves, so I can't offer many suggestions about sweaters, but if you're starting to knit in the round or you're a beginning knitter, I'm your girl. I can also make good suggestions for beginner books, podcasts I enjoy, and videos I think are valuable.
- Offer relationship advice. I'm not a professional, but I'm good at it.

Would anybody be interested?

I can't think of anything that I need right now. But I'm rooting for you guys.

Sadly, I am a perpetually broke college student. But I wanted to offer my sympathy re: the packing and moving, since I'm doing the same thing right now - only with a lot less stuff, I can't even imagine how you're managing with an entire house. O_o

What are your proofreading rates?

Signal boosted, too.

The project I'm looking at is a base of 67 pages and likely to be closer to 90 once the add-ins are added in
