    Just Yesterday

    Woke up feeling a little bad with a bit of a sore throat. Wanted to go to the doctor but I had no money. One good thing about Japan is that you can usually go to your regular doctor even if you have no money and they will let you pay later. So I was able to go and get some...

    Okay , Alright , I'm Poor !

    I've always been poor for one reason or another , sometimes by accident , sometimes by choice , even spite . I figure though , that even if I did have more cash , It'd just get spent as fast as it does now ( that's fast !) so it's more a matter of living within my very limited...

    Can't Catch Up!!!

    You know we fell behind on bills and have never been able to catch back up.  We are down to the basic necessities of life.  Bill collector's constantly calling. i don't answer anymore--i don't know what to say--i don't want to lie or make up stories.
