potential silkscreen design; thinking about making a small run of shirts & patches- by a show of hands who would be potentially interested in one if shirts were $20-25 and patches for $10-15 (excluding shipping)? #mikeybaratta #idesignedthis #silkscreen #print #tee #anyone?

personal post

I want to recap this year:

🔺I was hit by a negligent driver while riding my motorcycle. My leg was severely broken requiring multiple surgeries and a titanium rod put in my leg. My motorcycle was totaled and no settlement came from the accident due to the nature of the driver’s shit insurance. I had to learn how to walk all over again, couldn’t work for months and have an on going injury that still causes major pain and discomfort daily.

🔺I lived with several friends this year, 4 in total, and every one I lived with ended up kicking me out of their homes at some point (even when I was paying rent to live with them).

🔺I moved to SLC from LA on virtually a whim 4 weeks ago. A friend I made claimed her home was my home although that sentiment was shortly lived for only 13 days.

🔺I’m currently homeless. I work part time as a busser at a fine dining restaurant making $7.25 hourly plus tips. I’m trying to save up enough money to purchase a vehicle that I can sleep in so I am not reliant on random strangers I’ve met off okcupid and tinder for places to stay in the mean time (actively looking for another job or supplemental income).

I understand my problems are minuscule in comparison to others. I don’t live in Gaza or Iraq or Iran or any other country currently in a state of war or civil unrest. Ultimately, I could be worse off.

I want to see beauty and love in everything these days. After nearly losing my leg and my life from the accident I suffered in February my life has drastically changed. All I want to do is pursue my dreams and my passions- to see my goals as an artist and a musician come to fruition. A part of me truly wants to give up though- a part of me doesn’t really see the point in trying anymore.

I’m having a hard time figuring out if life is truly worth living when one has had so much taken from them. Tonight I want to give up, but tomorrow I may not.

I think I’ll see what tomorrow holds and go from there. I want to get on my feet before winter and snow hits town.
