Just want to anounce my 1000th post and also that by the start of August I may not be here on ATS for a while.
Business has been real bad for me lately and combined with rising prices, I'm almost broke. Add to that, I must leave the country I'm in due to the
visa expiring, I've got just enough cash for a flight to a country where I don't need a visa on my passport.
Then I'll have a few more bits of monopoly money to keep me going for a short while so I'll be doing what I can to get work and a place to live.
Yes, I could go back to the UK. But, i didn't leave there just to go back. I left the UK because of the sad and sorry state it has become. I have
been actively seeking work, worldwide, for the last 6 months. Have been searching the net for various different options or ideas. Some would have been
very reasonable if I had a bit more time or a regular profiitable income which I could have saved towards a move.
But hey, what the heck..this is ATs is it not?
Aren't we all about a slightly alternative view and outlook on life?
Well, I'm game.. I'm off, don't know where yet and I have no idea what to expect when I get there either. I'll be homeless and jobless and relying
on my skills, wit, intelligence, two legs and feet and the right as a human being to seek shelter and work.
I once vowed never to work for a business again. Said I would only work for myself. If at all possible, that is what I'll continue to do. I'm sick
of other peoples rules an regs when you're 'employed' by them on the 9-5 network tread wheels.. If a job needs doing, get in and do it, then the
I'm kinda experienced a little at moving around and starting over. It's daunting at first, but once you get that first foot in the first door,
you're laughing and things begin to pick up again.
Bearing in mind everything else that's going on and may possibly occur very soon (Iran) then all this may have happened at just the right time.
As for anyone else who is/has considered making a similar drastic move of just picking up and going..do it..live a little..experience the rush it
gives you. The panic, uncertainty, the buzz of life ringing in your ears. It's a bit of a wild ride, but you'll never feel more free.
Well, that said, this is the reason why i have not continued to add to TinWiki
or to my very popular
thread Avatar symbolisms
I've just not really been able to concentrate on these
fully and felt it would not be fair to only give a half hearted effort due to my personal situation. So I apologise to all those who have been waiting
for me to write more.
I have no idea as to when i may be able to gain net access after August. yes there might be net cafe's but finances will play a part too. i will do
what I can to pop in as often as I can though. ATS is not something I have spent nearly a year being involved with just to give up due to nowhere to
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone here on ATS. To the three amigos, the super mods, the mods, editors, archivists,
writers,fighters and scholars and us, the general members, may you all have good fortune and happy healthy lives. This isn't goodbye, it's just the
end of a chapter and the start of a new one for me and many of us.
If war breaks out, good luck everyone. Do what you know to be right. You can't go wrong then
So, until the end of July/start of August, I'll continue to add to ATS what I can and hope that what I add will make a difference to someone,
Now, where's that lottery ticket..??
