GlennM's Journal, 06 January 2011

Went off-track snacking at a gathering last night. I'm up in the middle of the night like I just slept ten hours and in reality I slept less than three. I hope to get some kind of walking in. Maybe a trip to the store is in order, I need some things, my friend may take me Thursday evening as I can't take boxes of dog food on a bus - it is too heavy to carry. I will write a list, hopefully Shawn will take me to the vet shot clinic for the dog next week too. Bruce seems to be too busy to even visit lately - a move out of the area would be good since the friends I have only do things for me like give me a ride somewhere if I pay them, and relatives are too busy with their own lives. I will move out of the area anyway once I am published. I don't need people who don't need me either... I need to get back on track with this dieting and resist temptation when it rears its ugly head!
Vocabulary word for Thursday: pettifogging - ADJECTIVE - petty; trivial -------- Origin from archaic word pettifogger from the 16th Century and pettifog (to quibble),from the 17th century. A pettifogger at one time was a word to describe an inferior legal practitioner.

Thanks loosin' - I have too many negative people around me now. I am not depressed but everyone I associate with is it seems. Life is too short to be miserable all of the time, the economy does suck for most people except those who have money and aren't investing in jobs, so times are rough for people I know. Luanne lives in a shack with no running water and she is lucky to have 48* yes 48* heat in the winter. Shawn is homeless - he works but can't afford rent and lives in his truck. Bruce works too but is depressed if he has one day off to focus on his financial situation. Maybe just getting on a plane and going to Hawaii to start over may just happen this year. I hope to move soon, they're building 120 condo units for veterans about twenty miles away, and I am likely eligible, it is difficult to get published in this economy, I just get rejection letters and no one has even read the first book. Both will be done by month's end (the first two) in final draft form. Then it's on to the nine short stories and typing and editing them into the computer. Thanks for being around loosin' I will likely move out of the area to a cheaper part of the country if I do get any money from being published, and if a good sum maybe back to Oahu, Hawaii... Be well - are you losing yet loosin' ? I hope to this year!

If it sounds like I am stressed, I am - my friends are having a rougher time in life than me, so dump it on me, hence the reason Debbie and I are no longer friends. Bruce was completely rude and obnoxious like everyone else has been to me lately, my friend Mike said people are jealous who know me in my building because I am a writer (whatever that means) - I guess they think I will have a better life than them soon enough. It is good already that I have gotten so much writing done despite the circumstances I live in. Tomorrow I may find out if I am moving, I don't want to wait three years for the veterans housing - I am ready to move now. Wish me luck1 I may just pick up and go in the spring, I've done it before!

Good luck to you Glenn. You need to surround your self with people that are not needy. They can really drag you down...Take care of you...Bren

Thanks Bren - a good idea would be for me to associate less with negative neighbors and not let friends who are down get to me. Not everyone who is low-income has a car, or if they do they often have one because they choose it over an apartment... I went shopping and bought lots of fruit tonight. This weekend I'll get vegetables - frozen...

i kno its hard to stay positive when everyone around you is in a negative state...sometimes you just have to overlook them...an be positive around them ...even a smile when they dont deserve it...alot of negative people feed off of other negative people ...if one is feeling bad...then the other is feeling worse...and it goes on an on...i meditate thru the day when i need to shed off the negative forces i run into...it helps me focus more on my positive thoughts...i kno its hard to live on nothing...and im sure that eventually sending out your manuscripts will eventually land in the right hands...an you will find the right person that will help you become more successful in life...its like your playing the lottery...an you just have to pick the right person that can help....have a great one glenn...keep positive...

Thanks loosin' - things can always be worse. I CAN move ANYTIME I want. No one is stopping me from selling everything and getting on an airplane. The friends I know have it worse than me so aren't the best people to be around. I'm hoping things change in the future...
