anyways im playing saturday, hopefully I can win some again to build up again
Keep at it.
Bankroll management applies in a restricted way with miniscule bankrolls. You do have to play underrolled until you manage to build it up, but, if it's all you've got, there's no point not playing until you freeroll it up to a higher amount.
My first cash bankroll started from a freeroll. I lost it all playing at the cheapest cash tables partly because I was playing too tight with scared money; I was afraid of losing what I'd worked so hard to earn. Same thing happened the second win, but the third one I managed to slowly build, eventually up to around $200 before it dropped some and then I cashed it out. By then I'd made a deposit at another site that became my main playing site.
If you look at Chris Ferguson's project you'll see the slowest grind is at the early stages which is why if you are ready to play it'd be a lot less frustrating to make a deposit to get you started, plus most sites offer first deposit bonuses. If you choose not to make a deposit, then just be patient. Very, very patient.
