Money muny /\/\0n13
    #1329303 - 02/23/03 06:18 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Let me start by saying that I haven't had money in a long time. I had none, then came into a lot, but ended up blowing it all on drugs and whatnot ... it's a hardknock life, etc. lol

Now I stand to make a shitload of money -by my standards at the very least- in a relatively short amount of time ... the key to all of this is "sanity," which affords one the opportunity to remain gainfully employed. This is something of a novel concept to me.

All right, here's the hitch: with all of this money rolling in, how does one manage to retain his sanity? I've never been happier than I have been these last few months, even though things have been extrememly tight ... in fact, not having money seems to be a lot better for me than having it. I don't really want to be poor forever, though, and unless my income remains stable from now on, I will slide below the poverty line that I've been walking directly onto the street. No joke. I've been on the verge of homelessness, death, or "other" for a while, which has suited me just fine. Due to a seeming absence of conscience and a degree of financial creativity, I've managed to get by. I am also quite "eccentric." lol

Stress has definately worked in my favour of late, but I don't know how long I can maintain this rather fragile balancing act. Am I being vague? What the fuck do you expect, it's not like I know you. Unless I do, in which case I apologize.

What exactly is it you do or don't do for a living? I think having a little extra money in the bank is a good thing. Hope you don't become homeless, man.

meh, it's all good. Home is where the heart is. :wink:

I work in a shop that insulates pipes of all sizes ... Apparently the work is extremely varied, as whenever an order for something new comes in all the operations change. All of the people I work with are very cool. I didn't really realize how cool at first, until I stopped to think about it. The work is very fast paced and again, I didn't really realize that it is actually enjoyable until I stopped to think about it. I picked it up fast, and got something much better than the monotonous grunt shit I've done before.

The best thing, though, is the money. The starting wage is excellent, and there are plenty of hours. Mon through Fri are currently 10 hour shifts, start at 7 and get out by 5:30; Sat is an 8 hour shift, so we're out by 3:30. That means a lot of overtime, which is fine by me as I'm not really doing much else right now, and the money gets even better.

I don't know how long I'll be doing this for. I hope it lasts. I got fired from my last job after a couple of days, quit the previous ones in about the same amount of time, and basically have been very creative with money, as I mentioned earlier. =p

Now I have to get a bunch of cash together to solve some problems (not entirely my own) and get my ass into University. What are the odds on my actually following through with the University plan? Not particularly great when my "track-record" is taken into account, but it's basically the only thing I want to do anymore--not that an English degree is likely to do me any good. I'm not really concerned with that right now. We'll see.

Sorry, I ramble.

Oh, I aim to do both. lol

I think everything's going to work out reasonably well. I'm just slightly insane.

With any luck, that's probably how it will turn out.

I will make a horde of money over the coming weeks, and see if I can get a week or so off. We will take lots of drugs and trash a hotel room or two, and leave them strewn with corpses.  :smile:

Ya, with any luck ...
