The national poverty level for a single man living in the united states is $11,170. Working full time I made $11,243.75, I’m rich:). I knew it was going to be dismal but receiving my 1099 statement was a bit of a shock, definitely good for a laugh. I can assure you the word poverty does not exist in my dictionary.
No matter, life is good and getting better by the day. Last night was the first night I wasn’t cold since winter started, my three new blankets turned my little v birth into a warm comfy den. By the end of the week my dogie food lockers will be full for another 6 months, add one more item checked off my list.

A friend recently asked me why I am so open with money on this blog. I answered because there are 100,000. people out there trying to accomplish the same thing I am, and I f I can do it earning less than half of minimum wage then so can they. When I literally lost everything I have in the entire world I didn’t look at it as a burden, I looked at it as a challenge.
