I have been in the HVAC field for 3 years until I was laid off in June. I am now searching for another job while entertaining the idea of Real Estate and/or an IT field of some kind. I like HVAC, just can't get the business around here I hoped for on my own and most of the companies around here are crooks.

Then, on other days, I'll hang around the Harbour Light Mission. I can get breakfast and dinner there free, and they also have a "Beat the Streets" literacy program. The pig I'm with now got me enrolled in it again, and she's talking to the priest that runs the joint so that I can go back there without breaking my parole. They have a computer with internet access there, and I play online poker. So far I owe about a dozen people some serious money, but I figure their chances of collecting are zero, so where's the harm?

Things are starting to look up. I'll be celebrating my first two weeks of sobriety next Wednesday. I'm figuring that if I stay clean and sober for a few months, Child and Family Services might let the pig get her kids back. Then we can start drinking again.

I'm hoping to maybe buy a house or something eventually, but it's a concern for me cuz sometimes I have trouble remembering where I live. I could see me moving into a place, and then not being able to remember where it is. That'd be a bummer. What happens if the City of Winnipeg expropriates my house for back taxes if I'm looking for it in Minneapolis somewhere?
You could have just said your in real estate. That would have covered it.
