Mankind Was My Business!

I’m just going to leave this right here!

Indiegogo for the Bistro

Been saving as much as I can each week, and so far for the business, I have 3,800 Php saved!
That’s really not a whole lot, but it’s way better than nothing!
We also checked into the paperwork….LOTS of papers to get and clearances to get and permits and blah blah…..then my working visa, then finding a place to rent…..(We’ve got our eyes on four different spots already though…..)

I took a few shots of the barbecue down the street that we go to for supper….there’s an adorable white dog that always sits patiently for me to share with him:

If he was cleaned up, he’d be a GREAT dog….he’s smart as a whip.
Speaking of adorable dogs……there was a baby pup we found in behind one of the houses here at the resort.
Like a stupid frigging moron, I hung out with it all day, gave it food, and it stuck to me like velcro, nuzzled into my neck and fell asleep for the whole day on my chest….I gave it a bath and everything…..

But then the boss got back and even after saying I’d be responsible entirely for its care, nope, get rid of it.
Unfortunately, it’s because there’s already two dogs here, and they have been TERRIBLY trained….they still jump and nip at people and don’t listen to anything at all.

I know how to train a dog properly, especially a pup…so that would have been no issue.
But I ain’t the boss.

So I had to send the dog away, it broke my goddamn heart and I’m still upset about it, but what can I do?

I just have to wait to get my own place…then I can rescue a poor puppo and work on spaying and neutering other strays.

Not much new going on….I never really get out anywhere lol
Oh well!
Check out my indie gogo campaign and maybe think of helping out?

Exhaustion Without Reward is Torture

Image


That’s Splatter….Though I gotta say, that’s what I’ve felt like the last few days. Haha
Lazy and exhausted.
Nothing terrible, Damon’s still on a no-drinking streak as far as I know, (( nine days so far )) But in the last five or so days I’ve been sticking to Craigslist, Manila like glue and applying to any job I don’t think is a total scam.
I’ve written about four 500-word articles to send out to people, and I wrote one 6-700 word article for my friend who edits and reviews articles for a Medicanna Magazine named Releaf. She’s published me once before, so I know this next one will be published. It’s a non-paying gig, but getting published work out there is a good thing to have for future references.

I’ve added a few more pictures up on my Deviantart account, and I’m praying that it’ll pay off someday…  I know I’m no professional yet with a camera, but it is my goal to be a pro one day, and hopefully own a Nikon or Canon by this time next year.
Donna said last week she would buy me packing tape so I could make a mannequin to begin designing and sewing clothes again, but….new week, no tape…..she tends to do that a lot, I’ve learned to not get my hopes up too high with her.

There’s an opening party for a beach resort we got invited to for the 3oth, I am going to take Donna’s camera and snap some really good shots of everything…they have a blog on their website, and their pictures aren’t currently the best, so I’m going to contact the owners, whom Donna knows well, show them the work I do after I get home, and then offer to update the blog for them regularly with pictures and write for them regularly…  Perhaps not for pay, but maybe I can stay there for free for a week every month or something.
Or, hopefully, maybe pay AND free monthly accommodation!…  Wouldn’t that be something.

So all in all, I’ve been a busy little turtle on the net this week.
I’m poopered, and I hope it pays off.
It’d be nice to go back to relaxing and enjoying the country instead of running around like a decapitated chicken trying to wrack my brain for income ideas.

Ciao for now….any ideas from you loverly readers would be awesome….and as always, if you enjoy reading, and would like to donate to the bloggity and support me, the link is right here:

Fads Are Orderly… Food Carts and Fires Are Not

Image

About a week ago, Damon bought me some acrylic paints, a silk screener & squeegee, and a barbecue recipes book.

When I first got here, back in May, I tried to make an outdoor underground stone oven/fire pit thingy, and failed miserably at the endeavor… I had forgotten to put in a ventilation hole, it wasn’t deep enough, and overall, the design was totally wrong.

When I got the barbecue book, my desire to build an outdoor fire-pit was renewed, and yesterday I spent the day hauling rocks from a little ways up the lane to our back yard.
Once Ray caught on to what I was doing, he helped out, and took a few trips on his scooter to collect the bigger rocks I couldn’t carry.

I tried last night to start a fire in it, just to see how it would work, but I’m terrible at fires, and it fizzled out within seconds.
This morning, I collected some more dried out leaves and stuff, and I’m going to try again this afternoon to light it…I really want to cook chicken wings in it, but I guess I’m going to have to wait until it’s totally finished.
I plan on digging a hole in the middle, making it a bit deeper the easy way, and packing the holes in the rocks with mud.

All in all, I’m proud, and I like being productive and building things.
I like fitting rocks together, they’re like a big piece-less puzzle.

Donna’s leaving again soon, probably around the 23rd, for four days, which is absolutely a good thing.
Damon’s drinking a lot again, and I’m really getting weary of trying to keep our spirits up.
If any of you lovely readers have dealt with a depressed spouse, or an alcoholic partner, you know how hard it can be.

I try to be quiet and out of the way and supportive and cheery, but when you’ve got a mother-in-law that treats you like a five year old, and a husband so upset at things in his past that he yells about it, it’s hard to be that perpetually cheerful happy-girl on a twenty four – seven basis.
I’m told to ‘make the house mine’ and participate in the household, and decorate and give input, but then when I do, or I make a change to something and tell everyone, it gets moved, ignored, or ridiculed.

Sorry to rant, it’s also very hard when you have no one to talk to about these things…

I wish we could get our own place, because his mother is literally killing him, and it hurts to see him so upset.

But what can I do?
I’ll just keep on doing my own thing, and hope he eventually comes around.
