Received positive response for affordable housing – Now can move forward to deal with hardware and software needs

Since writing this last evening, I’ve been informed that I can have the room available immediately in shared housing here in Providence (a district right next to Providence). It is affordable, which gives me a huge relief, so that I can plunge forward, focusing on finding income while also continuing to work on my own projects. I have wanted to get into vlogging, to add an extra dimension to my blogs. I have been searching for where to live in order to have a lesser overhead, in order to continue to pursue writing my blogs, completing my book and continuing to compose music. In the process of updating my operating system a month or so ago, I lost the functionality of one of the music software that I’ve used to compose, Ableton Live. I now can not open my music. In the meantime, my laptop which I’ve taken very good care of, has started to falter, and is shutting down, I’m writing this as quickly as possible because it has turned on. I have been contacting several artist communities I’ve been informed about since moving to Providence, Rhode Island. I moved here because it appeared to have a lower overhead, more affordable. I’ve been seeking an artist residency for years, and in the last days have begun contacting local artist groups seeking this. Basically many of my tools are faltering presently, as well as a present  lack of housing. I am doing my best to remain positive. Perhaps what I need to do is to have the courage and faith in myself to create a business of my own as an educator, through my blogging (which appear to be visited by groups of students) as well as my music and book (an educational eBook), in order to find a means of acquiring the tools that I need: a new laptop, the Ableton ‘Live’ music software that I have been using – at a discount, so that I can continue. I want nothing more than to complete my book, market it to Charter schools and home schoolers, and to continue to compose music. I have been sinking into debt, higher and higher. I wish to continue to develop my language skills and utilize them; I am conversational in German, French and Spanish. I really need emotional and particularly financial support, ideas, housing. I am writing this and continually sending the text via email to myself, because my computer screen has been going black and shutting down. I see so many things that I wish to contribute to the world, to appeal to the wealthy billionaires to create a means to bring money to many parts of the globe to help communities to create jobs to help themselves, to clean up their plastic waste, to find means of acquiring clean water. I wish to spread messages about sustainability, awareness about consumerism, waste and appeal to people to want to care about the life of other creatures on the planet, to want to protect the habitats of animals. I road bicycle on the outskirts of town an hour ago, 16 miles to visit a Best Buy, and was practically in tears because I feel so alien to all of these megastores, to all of the cars, to the consumerism that drives forward, to the alienation that exists between individuals. And in the meantime, I have several days left till the first of the month of April and as yet, have not secured a place to live. My attitude is everything right now. I am feeling very vulnerable and alienated and alone, and every place where I have sent resumes and cover letters appealing for work, have simply not been answered. I know there is a place for me and a group I can work with and a project I can help to spread, I am presently at a loss and simply do not at the moment know what I am going to do. I am writing this perhaps revealing too much. I simply need a roof over my head and finances to move forward. All I want is a community and housing in which I can set up the milestones of what I can achieve on a day to day and weekly basis, to commit to what I whole heartedly wish to do, and to show that I am capable and competent to continually work hard towards these goals.

There has got to be a place for me somewhere, a community where I belong. There must be a reason I was born and something for me to contribute to this world.
