I've seen you several times now soliciting people for this gambling
I know it's not the place, but I just want to make sure everything is okay
with you. Do you need to earn a lot of money quickly, or are you just

more gainful endeavors. There are better are safer ways to earn money, feel
free to reach out if you're stuck and can't think of anything productive to
If it's the latter, again, feel free to reach out if you're stuck and can't
think of anything productive to do.
Either way, I'm sure someone here can point you in the right direction.
