October 13, 2012

I am sitting at the library again thinking about life and what is going on in this country. Cut backs at work are hurting me so bad. I am behind on my rent 2 months and it seems there is no way around it. I get my paycheck and subtract what I make before taxes and from what I receive. I am paying out close to $700.00 a month of money that I will never see again. I am paying for food stamps, welfare, WIC, SNAP, Section 8 housing, etc. I will never benefit from what they are taking out of my paycheck. I am basicially working to live and thats it. I have three days of vacation left that I need to use by the end of this year. I am going to use it too. I am going to take off a week from Monday and go look for a part time job that i can work at nights for a while. Its my only alternative. I am selling my SUV to get some money back in the bank to help me with living. I hope to be moving to Arkansas in the next few years. Heck, it maybe next year. I am just trying to make it right now.

October 5, 2012

I realized this week that I am just part of the working class poor. I am not a Democrate or Republican. I am just a hard working individual working just to make a living. I dont have any fancy things and my bills are all basic living expenses other than my XM radio for $9.99 and my Dishnetwork for $55.89 s month. I know that in order to start working for my future, I am going to have to leave this area and find a job where I can actually have something instead of a lot of bills. I can go out and purhcase things on credit but paying for them is going to be a lot harder than doing without. I am going to sell my SUV that I love and use that money to get the hell out of the Mississippi Delta. Until then, I will just have to get used to having nothing. Ruby

October 1, 2012

I had to change my cell phone number this morning after 9 years of having the same number all this time. It just came right down to when you are scared to answer the phone or read a text because of someone harassing you all the time. Its best to change your number and move on. Its all the paperwork, emails, faxes, texts, phone calls, etc that you have to change is what messes me up. I may just start changing my number every few months just to clean out the riff raff. Crazy that people make you do things like that just to be able to live free and not be bothered. October 1st did start off well. I woke up this morning to a beautiful fall like morning with a lot of rain. the beautiful fall leaves on Dog Bog road were breath taking. I am going to take pictures later this week if its not raining. ruby
