upset with current $ situation

#1 Postby Hero » Mon Nov 14, 2005 4:54 pm

I need some $$ soon yo. sleeping in the car, working up on the mountain for dough. cant eat right, sleep right, rest right, Im up all night. worrying about what might have been, somethings come to an end.
instead of focusing on one goal, I focus on 3 or more, its time to sit back think straight, and work out a plan for the future..

I hear ya man. We are the poorest group of 3 vegans living together I can think of! I only have $6 until Wednesday and I have to get to Eugene tonight to work on the movie.

But we've been in these situations before and we find our way out of them eventually, at least temporarily. It is frustrating for me as well. I've been working full-time since December and still only have $6 :?: :?:

We'll get it figured out soon man. I also hope to eat well again soon. I got caught up on most of my bills last week so that was a good feeling.

Hang in there, we'll look for more cans to collect and turn in.

yeh i kinda stopped eating and training properly...

I cant afford the gym anymore. and I cant afford to eat what my body needs to maintain.

but I gotta do what I gotta do. and I will persevere and not let this shit get to me. although I do see my life taking a turn in an old familiar yet new direction.

going alright. my foot is still screwed up ...but $$ wise I am alright for right now. I sold my car and bought a few necessities, and I have money now to pay off some of my debt. but I am still thousands upon thousands in debt, so I will be getting a job over this winter.

I just need to be constant with my gym-goings and let me foot heal so i can start lifting for legs again.


thanks for asking :)

I hope you get better soon buddy. I know it sucks not to be able to do the sports and jobs you'd like to be doing. I had some back injuries that took me out of many sports I liked, including weight lifting, soccer and basketball, so I understand how frustrating it is to sit on the sidelines when you'd like to be out doing flips in the snow and squatting like crazy.

Heal soon brother.

Peace - oh - and Anna says hi :D

Hehe, She used my phone to call you last night when I was hanging out (for only the 2nd time in 8 months). You can call me "Mr. Social" now. I might hit 3 social gatherings by the end of the year if I keep this pace up. :wink:

Yeah man, back slowed me down majorly, I could barely walk at times, but I know you know what that is like. I love deadlifts and squats but I'm scared because they've broken me so many times and the result if very dangerous and painful.

Speaking of that....my friend Adam told me he just pulled 700 pounds for deadlifts and the blood vessels in his right eye burst. It looked a little freaky, I saw him yesterday. He used to wrestled at 114 pounds in high school and only 5 years later he's 200 pounds lifting 700!
