The Michael Swayne Story V: King of his Castle

Long time, no nothing...

Rate this Entry

So, a ton of crap has happened.

Some crap is good. It shows that you have processed stuff/are in the action of processing stuff.
A whole dump truck full of not so much. I mean, it feels like it just continues to pile up, and my shovel has been taken from me, and instead I was handed a teaspoon.

So there's that.

The last time I wrote in this was nearly fourteen months ago. It's not that I didn't have anything to write about. It is just that really good has happened that I wanted to write about. Well, maybe some good things. But the human being is prone to focus on the negative, which causes the positive stuff to become muted amongst all of the negative stuff. In the last entry, I quit the cleaning crew at work. I had gotten a Jeep. I had a puppy named Luke. To update on that, the cleaning crew ended up being a flop. After I quit, the whole team was put under a microscope. After all, what would cause a good worker, liked and respected by several main people at GE, to just up and quit like that? They remaining people managed another month or so, and their shady dealings were found out. One such event in particular involved the supervisor doing more than just cleaning. In fact, let's just say she was cleaning a LOT more than the floors when she was under the tables, heh heh. I was brought in for some questioning to corroborate the things they had learned, and they fired the entire cleaning crew staff as a result. Another contractor came in and rehired half of them temporarily. Then 80% of them were re-fired just recently. Now, only two of the people I worked with on the cleaning crew remain as staff members.

The Jeep is a piece of junk. I wrecked in it back in December, when I slid on ice. The tires were stupidly oversized, and I couldn't control it. Then it seems like everything on it was old, rusty, and falling apart. I was only getting 200 miles per tank of gas. I did manage to go to Massachusetts and back in it, but it is junk. The motor blew a couple months ago. My brother said that he would replace it. But it has been two months, and still no Jeep. So, that makes two vehicles to die under my care. My Mom's Honda is still sitting in my driveway, and one day she will pick it up. I am buying a Chevy Cavalier, in which I owe $1,375 for it. My boss fixed it up and is taking money out of my check to pay for it.

Luke is doing good. He got sick with parvo once, and nearly died (I don't remember if I had told you this). And then this year the crazy neighbor I have decided to go on Facebook and slam me for "mistreating" him. She posted my address and took pictures of my house and everything. I had people saying that they were going to steal him from me, and punish me, and kill me. I called the police about it, and was told that they can't do anything about stuff that happens online, but would send an officer to the house anyway. He ended up saying that he talked to the neighbor, but nothing really came of it. So, I had to go on the defensive and prove that my dog was not being harmed. It sucked, because I hate confrontation. But some people just need to be schooled. If I keep coming back to update this, I will go into more detail.

My three fish have died. They were old. I miss them, because they were my original pets here. I also have two cats. I did have three, but one wasn't really mine. He was the neighborhood cat who simply stayed here from time to time. It was sad to see him claimed by another family, and I hope he is happy with them. I will flood this blog with pictures of Kitten and Punk in a future entry.

I am working at the newspaper again. I needed some extra money, so I asked for my job back. They were glad to give it to me. I don't have my full route back, but what I do have pays for my gas in the car each week.

And that is where all the crap originates. Money. I don't like being one of those people that says I need more money, but I do. I miss the days when I didn't have to worry about money. But the paperwork went through to buy the house I am living in. So instead of $450 per month for rent, I am paying $600 house payments to own this craphole in full. It sucks, because I already have put so much into owning this house that I would be stupid to just walk away from it. And with bills, and the new car, it just feels too much.

So I am trying to earn extra money however I can. I have even considered being a male sex cam model, or offering my body to people willing to pay. That is how bad it is. And sure, I have joked about doing that stuff before (maybe not on here), but it is a definite possibility at this point. I have had offers recently, but I have always been too scared to go through with it.

So, here's banking that my YouTube channel finally takes off! HAHAHA! Yeah, like that will happen.

I am still doing that transcribing and translating for mTurk. And I was accepted to do those things for as well. The only problem is finding the time after work to do it. I just feel so tired when I come home that I can't. And then I am earning money using an app called Blast. It pays me to play and complete missions for mobile games. The pay isn't much, and it takes about two weeks for it to arrive, but it actually is legit. Plus, it acts as a savings account as well, and will pay interest for keeping the money in your account each month. I wish I was a paid sponsor for it, because it is really nice. I have $63.15 saved up at the moment (I have earned $91.14 in total since downloading it), and I plan on using that money to pay for Christmas shopping.

There is so much more I need to get off my chest, but I am going to leave for now. I want to play the PS4 for a bit before I go help my boyfriend with his work. So, until then...

    That's quite a lot that's happened.

    I don't really know what to say, except that I'm glad to hear from you, and I hope everything works out.

    What's this about a YouTube channel? I'd like to check it out.

    Anyway, I wish you and yours the very best!
