You know what, I clicked on the link and that book does look adorable and appropriate for kids, but the word in the title is considered a bad word in America! I think it must be a different word in Europe because the comments on that site also mention that they were surprised and then realize that in the book it means something different.

I'm not sure if that's the one or not, but Avery is my 10 year old niece and since we picked the first book as one her brother would like more, I said she could pick the second book ... I think that's probably though.

We can totally do that. But have you already read that? Don't you want to do something you haven't read before? As your aunt who is also a writer I can find books that I think you will like :)

Yeah, I don't even try to go after the "BIG CGI" jobs. Who wants to write that crap? I think there's hope this could be better.

Why don't you start the book and see how fast you read it. I've already looped in my mom and nephew. Meanwhile, as soon as I have adjusted the design a bit, I'll start bringing in more users.

Ok, well, someone as smart and computer literate as you could probably make a full time living just off bitcoin alone. And that would suit your hermit / buddhist monk lifestyle. Just putting that out there!

It is I!.... ehm Wait.. who was I again, pretty sure I'm no Johnny, they always get told to be good and I'm beyond those mere dualistic concepts uttered by mouths implemented by the Demiurge to enslave all with language instead of the holy that is me!

Well I was just referring to when you said you only live on 1500 a year, cuz that seems so low to me, and you seem very smart to me. If you're happy not engaging with the world of money so much, then so be it! Just wanted to offer that I used to live on way less than I do now. And I actively worked to expand my sense of what was possible for me.

I know you weren't complaining but as a member of this community I want to get to know you and all our fellows here. I want to know people are thriving. Man that situation sounds so discouraging. Is there no other university (even online?) that the credits you've earned might be transferable to? I relate to the autism thing ... I think I may have aspergers but apparently it's way under-diagnosed in women. I haven't gotten seen for it yet but I want to. Regarding UA ... I just found it really helpful (particularly their 10 principles or whatever) in starting to reframe my thinking around money. A lot of this is rooted in family of origin stuff. And you can change it and start to embrace new beliefs around money and abundance.
