Still Hanging on to the SeedSavers Job.

I worked my second week at Seed Savers, today.
I got paid for my first week and spent most of it paying a credit card. At least I have money to live on this week.
Next week I hope to get my windshield replaced. It's had a large crack for the last couple of months.
I got the motor home sold but I have to take payments for a few months. Not only is it good to have some income from that, but I feel good to be out from under it.
It just took too many repairs and it never did run good. Now it's someone else's problem. I hope it works out for him.
I'm stiff and tired from working; yesterday I had to carry several fifty pound sacks of seed from one end of a building to another. It wore on my back and I had to sit down as much as I could, yesterday.
Well, I only have 4 or 5 more weeks at Seed Saver's; I should be able to handle it.
At the end of November I'll be shoveling snow. That will be harder, anyway, since we are expecting a bad year for snowfall. Of course, that means I'll be making a lot of money.
I need to get back to time travel and make all sorts of money with Bitcoins. I don't know if I mentioned it here but I have memories of encountering a future me back in the year 2010. He spent a lot of time messing with computers and he had a car with a license plate from 2017. I think he ended up with a lot of Bitcoins. He told me that I shouldn't invest since it was all rigged, but he knew that I wouldn't listen, anyway.
I've got to change my intro since I wiped out at panning gold, I sold my motor home and they never called me to do any driving for the VA. I just need to eliminate those things as well as any mention of Ebola since that sizzled out.
Conner is playing the piano here at Java John's so I think I'll clean up my intro and start listening to him.

I Started my new Job at Seed Savers.

I took the job at Seed Savers. They are an internationally known heirloom seed producer.
My first few days I worked in shipping and processing garlic. 
It wasn't that hard. I was tired but I felt that I could get used to it.
Today was different. I went out to the field with a crew to harvest tomatoes. I almost passed out. I was out of breath and sweating profusely. There were several times that I was dizzy. 
I worked an hour and a half and took the rest of the day off.
I think part of my problem is that I've had pneumonia several time and my lungs have a lot of scar tissues. I also had to do a lot of squats to get to the tomatoes on or near the ground. I don't have the strength in my legs that I used to. 
I'm going back to work tomorrow. I hope they keep me; I need the money.
Talking about money; I sold one of my etchings on Ebay today. I sell them through a place called The Game Exchange. I'll get a little more than $30. I really need it now. 
With the few days that I've worked, and payment for my motor home, I should be able to make my bills for this month. After that, I'll have to find another job. 
If I can get through to the end of November, I'll make plenty of money, shoveling snow. 
We'll see what happens.

Waiting to hear about Two Jobs

Tomorrow I'll hear about whether I get one of two jobs I applied for.
The first one is a computer tech job I've been trying to get for the last month or so; the second is at a place called "Seedsavers exchange". They ship heirloom seeds throughout the world.
I would like to get either of the jobs.
The Seedsavers job only lasts a couple of months but that would get me through a rough patch for me. By the end of November I should be able to make enough money, shoveling snow, to pay my bills for the next 3 or 4 months.
I think the computer tech job is part-time which is great for me.
Last week I applied for a manufacturing job.
I blew it by asking if I could work part-time.
I'm kind of glad that I didn't get the job. It sounded too physical to me; and the plant gets rather hot since there is no air conditioning. I don't think I would be up to it.
I sold some of my precious metals yesterday to keep up with my credit cards. I hated to do it but I figured that the metals would  be taken from me if I had to declare bankruptcy anyway.
I'm trying to sell everything I have just to keep up with my credit card payments.
That's just one of the problems of being poor. Even if you get ahead a bit it will be taken away from you. It always works that way.
I'd like to break that cycle. I just don't know how.
I've tried investing but I always lose since I'm not a Rothschild or Rockefeller. I'm just a poor schmuck who gets cleaned out every time I invest in anything.
