    Well 99% Of The Time.

    Sometimes not all the time but most of the time, lol.  To make this short, I plan on doing something about it so I stop complaining about it. Then this problem will be solved!

    Oh Well

    …and sometimes not even that. It’s always a struggle and bugs me at times but I do the best I can and make it work. It all comes together in the long run; just need a little faith and a whole lot of patience.

    I don't need much besides food.  I guess I'm lucky that I can afford that, even.  There aren't many jobs to be had here.
