as I have been with all other legitimate religions

Funny that you still refer to them as a legitimate religion.

You mention this in your post:

Actually, making a perfect resume to pass an ATS is easy when you have relevant accomplishments and experiences to the job description you're applying to. Yet, it is difficult to explain these experiences and recognize your achievements.

But fail to address a significant problem for younger people at the moment: not having those relevant accomplishments and experiences.

It's normally people that haven't had to build resumes before that need help making one. Those people are going to be the people most likely to have an inadequate number of actual items on said resume. Does your software address this at all, Or is it just focused on getting the top 10% of applicants into the top 5% pool?

My publisher sends out checks/reports on an odd schedule and the book hasn't been out that long, so I can't give an exact dollar amount.

For future reference, it's better to just admit you're not comfortable answering the question.

There are legal reasons that you have to know how much money your publisher has given you so far; taxes, etc, and you should really have a running log somewhere of every check they've given you.

If you don't have an easy way to determine how much you've made so far, you really need to fix that. It'll bite you in the ass at some point.

Not entirely sure what the Western Christianity sects have to do with all of this.

I was in the ER at 2am on Christmas eve morning, one of the most painful experiences of my life to be honest, even after times I've broken multiple bones, been in a wreck, or had some serious surgeries. I've been through a lot over the years but this was crippling. I woke up in a fetal position, and it took me almost 20 minutes just to get myself out of the bed.

Luckily I wasn't alone, so I was able to wake someone up to drive me to the ER (though it took me almost an hour to crawl to them and wake them up). Turns out I have a severe version of a genetic thing people in my family get, but now that I know about it the treatment is super simple and I'll probably never have a problem with it again.

Sorry got off on a tangent there, to the point:

A few minutes after I got there (literally the only one in the ER, was awesome how fast it went) I was medicated and I was in heaven. Have a recording of me giggling and smiling laying in the bed, though every time I moved I would start visibly cringing in pain.

A picture of someone smiling or laughing or whatever after an injury showing it "wasn't that bad" is absolutely batshit crazy fuckery that only a scummy person would ever try to use as proof. The power of modern medications to make you either not feel pain, or not care that you can feel it, is ridiculous.
