Good luck! The best advice I can give you is to not let anything stop you from traveling. Just do it. Nows a weeeeeeird time to travel. Bring masks and hand sanitizer.

If you end up traveling alone, you might experience a slump in your Will to anything, at first. Know that this is temporary. Be kind to yourself. Start building yourself up and keep things in perspective.

Also, a reportedly really good way to get it off the dumps is to help someone less fortunate than you. They say it's time tested.

Good luck, mate. Know there's people rooting for you.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $50.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $50.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $50.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
