Ugh, My Kingdom or a JOB!

You know what sucks about loans?  Especially for "Luxuries" like a camper that you live in?  They are OUTRAGOUS!   My payment is barely less then my rent for a 500 sq ft Apt in Atlanta... You know how much it cost to live in a bad part of that city?  It cost waay more to live in the slightly nicer area! (in my case, near my college... It wasnt the nicest part but it was near town so 800+ with no features was dirty cheap...)

My payment isnt 800 a month but its about half that, plus insurance, plus propane (I cook so much I run right through that stuff!  But no electric stoves were offered unless it was a 50 amp and with 30 being more common... I couldnt go for that in price or convience..) then there is the storage fee...  Yah, when its all said and done, im paying about the same every month on a free lot...

But I know that once its paid off i'll have atleast HALF of that to spend.  Oh yah... Thats my goal.  Its like buying a house except this one can move and since it doesnt have a motor attached its cheaper upkeep (no really).  My only issue is im getting free parking now.  If I can boondok abit I can move between location and location... We know our battery can upkeep a few days if were not power hungry and we did okay with 5 gallon jugs of water into our reserve..  (Rednecks... They are wonderful, they rigged us up to pump from the 5 gallon bottles to fill our tanks while water was down!  God bless them... Because I didnt wanna lug those heavy bastards up the steep steps.)
Needless to say, getting by isnt a issue but i'd like to do more...

I love blogging, I love writing but this shit is a one in a million home run for actually making a living wage.  If my writing made me 5 a hour i'd be grateful but since I moved and lost contact to a lot of my freelance work im getting maybe 20 a month of this and my ebooks... ><;

Never fear, i'll keep writing here and i'll still put out books on Amazon.  But I may have to do the thing I hate most... Ugh... A job..

The inch worm is SUPPOSE to be getting one... But someone got it in his head to start his own business so our savings are now gone.  His anxiety always made it hard for him to be around others so I pray this new venture works out since his personality would make it a perfect fit.  But till it pays out, i'll be getting a job.

And yes my friends, i've worked before.  I worked before and even during college abit.  But I didnt need to when I lived with him so I quit to focus on my studies and worked at getting contacts for writing and built this LOVELY blog.  Well it started on weebly...

Anywho, slim pickings in my area... Unlike Atlanta (Hated living there but I did have a LOT more options!).  But luckily Walmart is a revolving door and there are a couple places that take waitresses.  I may even see about writing for the local news... I bet they could use someone under 45!

So yes.. This is my plan.  Upside:  More money, less time, I can splurg.  Downside:  I have no room to splurg, I dislike this area, and I have less time... -.-

The things we do to enjoy life... OYIE!

Yoga isnt the only Stress Reliever...

This is my new habit.  It even uses my favorite FUCKing word!  :D

If you still live with your parents, this is not for you.

Things I dont understand...

Some of the things I will never understand:

Why people want to make cake out of veggies (honestly, even carrot cake is a strange thing if you think about it!)

Why raw fish is appealing...  Why raw meat is appealing at all really, that includes bloody beef.  How can you be faint at blood and want to eat it?  For that matter why is it we'll ban nuts from places due to allergies but someone fainting at the site of undercooked meat not been addressed?  Or just because vegans are offended... We ban the strangest things in America.

Third, why are people so easily offended?  Im not saying there isnt a reason, but why does it ALWAYS seem to be taken in a offensive way?  Especially when it was never meant to offend.  We have freedom of speech but having a opposing opinion is offensive no matter your reasoning.

Four, WHY DID YOU INVENT STICKY KEYS?!  No really, has anyone ever had a real reason to use it?  I accidently activate it constantly while just thinking before I type and then I cant remember how to unstick it and my keyboard is now writing in symbols to googling is out the question... And I have to restart because im stuck.  Is there a reasoning behind this? 

Why do people care what more famous people are doing?  I've never understood that trend but there are people who know every single aspect of a persons life and this would be considered disturbing and possibly stalking if said person wasnt famous...  If you know more about what a person you will never meet is doing but have no idea what your family is doing... Shouldnt that be concerning?!  I feel like I missed the memo.

Taxes...  I find them vexing to think about with insane laws...  Why isn't it just a strict percent for everyone?  It would be simplier then your taxes jumping up and down depending on your wages and if you got over time...  Hey, I did once work a job that paid W-2 wages!  And that 1 extra hour would cause me to get LESS because my gross jumped me to a different bracket... Where's the sense?

Lastt, is why is smaller MORE then bigger?  I'm not talking a super computer in the palm of your hand, I'm talking a 12 ft table costing the same as the 8 ft model with the same look and benefits...  Same with ovens... All you did was make the cooking area smaller, nothing else is smaller... Why is that suppose to be 500 more for 7 sq ft less cooking space?!  in a SIMPLE OVEN!!

Rant over for now...  Maybe someone can answer these plaguing concerns?  I imagine you cant be wrong when 90% of what I wanna know is opinion based.

Staying out in Camper-One Week In

So... Its been one week since we moved into our tin box.  And its abit hot...

The back isn't very shady so were in the direct sunlight... We covered windows, keep them open...

It wouldn't be as bad if we could use the AC!!

But its AC and nothing, or No AC and PC/TV.

Were in a 30 AMP trailer, but were hooked to 15 amp at the house...  That 15 amps is pretty much sucked up by the AC so we might can do one light and the AC but trying to charge or run the TV will blow the fuse.

So yah.  We started running the AC and just napping during the hottest part of the day... We take our phones in to charge and pretty much sleep from 11 till 4.  A nice 5 hour nap.  After that we can take pups out, turn off AC and do basic stuff like shower, wash dishes from lunch/breakfast, turn on TV and PS4 to get a show going.

We wait till... 6ish to start the PCs up.  By that time the cool of the AC has left the area and we need to start opening windows so we just open EVERYTHING and start cooking on the stove.  That flimsy screen door is sucky but its keeping the bugs out, because they start buzzing about 6 or 7.  So while I cook the pups are doing their business.

Then we kind of crash and do what we do till 10ish.  At this point its comfy outside so we run pups out again and shut the door and just enjoy the breeze from the windows.

My favorite time is the mornings (I know, I've lost it!)  But between 2 and 8 it is just SO COOL!  Actual cold cool.  It feels nice and comfy in here and this nice bit of late night wind...  Cozy.

This is the time I really like to do the hardcore gaming since it works the PCs sooo much.  Its also when we do our updates.

And that's kind of what were doing. 

I am REALLY seeing why people install fans...  Ceiling fans like a freaking house... But my camper is just too low to do that but I might get a fan like in the bathroom to put in the bedroom and above the kitchen area.  Why the bedroom?  Because its a cramp space sleeping two people... It gets stuffy.

On that note, we are currently not sleeping together during our "Nap" time... I take the couch and hes in the bunk house.  Its just too hot to be on top of each other and the dogs kind of... Spread.  My poor little pitty is sleeping in our bathroom.  Its just the right size for his mass to spread comfortably on his side and since its not on the sunny side  (unlike our choices of beds... The kitchen and bunkhouse closet take those sides where were ending up.)

The pups are adjusting great I think.  They are enjoying the close contact and the fact that you can see everything from everywhere but our bed because its behind a wall.. Their nosey butts love that.

If it wasn't so horribly hot, I think everyone would be happier!

I'm personally annoyed with the stove!  Since I could cook, its always been electric so its taking time to get use to propane...  We actually had our carbon meter blare at us one day because we accident nudged the knob and it was slowly leaking gas into the trailer.  The windows were open so we would of been fine, but now we know it works!

But I'm also abit freaked by that... so I look at it... hourly.

So, it hasn't been overly eventful.  But were making it.  Yay, for that?
