I would still keep playing freerolls on the side. maybe build your bankroll from freerolls up to lets say 25$. then start playing 0.25 sit&go’s or 0,25 spin&go’s (would do sit&go’s imo) if you arent a sit&go fan and like tournaments.
play 0,55$ tournaments or 1.10$ but have 100x the buy-ins for those
if you arent feeling it stick to playing freerolls and maybe later try again.
there are some good info on this site for beginners so have a look.
good luck in all your games
