All Things Screwed!


Personal / Tuesday, August 17th, 2004

Well, the Jen will be attending her final semester of law school in the Spring. Which, I guess is good…more time to earn some money the next few months by getting gainfully employed…and I can take a class over the winter term to lighten my load for the spring. However, this also means that the Student Loan money that I could have been using had I attended in the Fall…is not going to be available until January. Lazy, depressive Jen was somewhat pretending to count on that money, before it was hers…oh to pay the rent and the electric…but nope. Not now.

So I revert to the MAKE A DONATION BUTTON on the side bar…after the rent is paid, then I will pursue the finer living of blogging tools. I’m sending out a plethora of resumes this week…and listing some of my items on half.com over to ebay to see if they sell there…and I am going to really start shopping a few article ideas I have…an easy target is the local news paper, they pay $40 for a My View…and $40 is 1/10th of my rent expenses! Maybe I should start making bread and selling it like my grammy did…(wait! theres the my view story for the week!)

Alas…and to think that there are people who never have to worry about these things, who aren’t currently ducking from their landlord because the rent is late and half.com still needs to deposit my $100 in sales.

An appropriate precursor?

I finished reading the book “We the Poor People : Work, Poverty, and Welfare” last night, before sending it out to the new owner who paid me $5 for it! Telling? Perhaps…perhaps, perhaps…
