Hey all you lovely peoples and thankyou for all the lovely welcomes!
I haven't been back in a few days because unfortunately I got struck with a bad strain of flu. Only just finding myself now to be strong enough to operate my computer again. That's a huge bunch of cool advice u'all gave me. $4 a day sounds fairly doable... I'm guessing it probably converts to about £3.50 a day over this side of the pond... I'm on £40 a week, most of which has to go on transport (very rural, very disconnected around here)... however, if I can convince that my keep payment stops including food, then I can buy my own food (which is something I've always wanted anyway) instead of just not eating most of what I get. So that should be very doable indeed, I think. There are farms around here... unfortunately, mostly livestock (toxic soil, as I hear it)... but there are certainly supermarkets, all the same. Bulk section... I'll remember that. Bulk section.
I have tried to be a bodybuilder. Used to train in pro wrestling and for that, you pretty much need to be a bodybuilder as well. Ran out of money, though. Usual story. Really enjoyed gymning while I could do it, though... awesome stuff... loved bucking the stereotype, too. Come in, see all the girls on the cardio and most of the boys on the weights and after my warm-up I'd just be like, go over to a free weights machine and "YARRRR!!!" hahaha that was so much fun.
And looking at your biceps grow in the mirror was a lot more addictive than I imagined it to be. Wish I could do that again. Ah well, I'd have to find a job. Or win the lottery. (both about equally likely these days, lmao)
Pleased to meet you all!
