Life Is Not Easy

This is the time of year just like back home when the summer ends and winter begins. It is hard to find more work or a real job for that matter.  I am working a a Family Restaurant here in the town of North Pole. The nights are getting short and the bills are getting big. The power bill has gone up about $65 per vehicle that you have to keep plugged in in the winter time. So as you can imagine the power bill is around $200 to $300 dollars a month. Work is shard to find because the outside work and general labor is hard to find.  So now you  must think to yourself are you willing to work outside when its -20 to -30 below.  Well I will tell you, it takes a special kind of person to be able to do that. I am not that person. I am the guy that will cook for those guys. The hours at the diner have gotten slim. And I am looking for more work. I have an opportunity to go to work with a rather large towing company, Alyeska Towing. So we will see how that works out.

On some other good new I have finally been accepted to college, which I have been applying for for the past several years in a row, and have been told no. Well financial aid apparently deemed it plausible for me to go to college. Well we will see how that works itself out.


Anyway I hope you all have a good night and I will talk to you all again soon.

Good to hear from you, brother. It's not nearly as cold here, and the coffee is starting my day out right. Congratulations again on the college acceptance and financial aid!

We're all proud of you.
Keep in touch!
