Today I'm some where in the middle of being rich and flat broke depending on how you look at it, but from where I'm standing it's more twords the broke side.

I've been living on this laid-up vessel for going on three weeks now and working on a fleet tug at night. Well there are two guys that are on this thing all the time, talk about slobs. They leave dishes in the sink for days... hell there has been a pot in the sink and a pan on the stove for a week.
Air in my room is fine after midnight but it gets about 90° in it during the day so when I get off the tug at 5am I can get about five hours of sleep before it gets too hot. Even when I take a shower I feel dirty around there, it takes me almost half an hour to shower due to the lack of any real water pressure.
To say this really sucks is an understatement which is putting it mildly. At least working nights it has been really slow in the fleets so i've had a lot of time to do some thinking about money, business, life, and games. I know that I don't really have it all that bad when I really look at things but I can't help but think that life could be so much better if I could make $200,000 - $500,000 or even $1,000,000 a year.
But all that's another story right now
I play World of Warcraft a lot even when I should be doing other things like building shelves for the house, painting, working on my online training which I could finish in a day or two if I wanted. I work a fulltime job that keeps me away from my wife and kids for a month at a time but its all good because I get to spend a month at home with them, I just have to get my ass off the computer more.
Im somewhat addicted to the game but its better than being on drugs. It costs a little but hey when I was single I used to spend $300 or more in one night between casinos and stripclubs.
