Drinking Wine and Getting Paid

As you may know, I’ve spent the last four years of my life driving an 18-wheeler. I recently came off the road to focus on more important things like my health, my love life, and drinking more wine.

Going to drive truck is an excellent way to reduce living expenses because you can live on the truck, therefore you have no rent or utilities to pay. Eating out can really cost you, but I managed to keep my restaurants and groceries under $500 every month (my largest expense). I put all my household items in a storage ($90/mo) and I had a cell phone ($150/mo.) Low maintenance.

I was able to pay off some debt living this way and was just getting where I could start saving money. But man, while the time I had on the road was interesting and at times, a lot of fun, it’ll wear ya plumb smooth out. I got really tired of eating at the same fast food restaurant, dealing with every man in the trucking world hitting on me, having to walk a mile to get a shower, and never being home. trust me, I became very distant with my friends and family and my social life was zero.

I had started a side hustle last year to keep me busy during my home time (four days out of the month). And now I guess I’m kind of doing it full time. I really wish I could get the ball rolling and really get it going. My goal is to recruit two people by October so I can promote.

If you love drinking wine and getting paid for it and maybe you’d like to earn a few hundred extra every month before Christmas, holler at me: http://www.myttv.com/texaswinegypsy

PS, Did I mention you get a pretty cool discount on all the wine whether you’re selling or not!?! Yeah… this is my dream job!


I get by with a little help from my friends

“What would you think if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me.
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song,
And I’ll try not to sing out of key.
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, I get high with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends.”

Well, we can leave out the innuendo about getting high, but friends are very important to someone who is struggling. Friends can’t always be there financially for you, but they can definitely be there to guide you emotionally, and pick up your spirits.

Because I’m a gypsy, an beyond being a social butterfly, I have numerous acquaintances/friends spread all over the world, and very few live within driving distance of my wonderful city. So, when I moved here, I joined a MeetUp group. Several of them actually, but only one that really speaks to me. They’re all a bunch of lushes. And I love them.

A few of them know what I’m going through at this point in my life and have given me great words of wisdom and inspiration. The rest of them have given me wine. And margaritas. And beer. Bless them. I just show up and they take care of me. Can’t ask for better friends than that!

Wanna know why the bum is standing on the corner asking for some change to get drunk? Well, it’s a survival skill really. To lift one’s spirits, sometimes you just have to drink them!



If you’d like to be a friend in deed, you can contribute financially to http://www.gofundme.com/4lr5nc. I promise I won’t spend it on beer, but actual necessities. No worries if you can’t contribute, prayers, good vibes, and well wishes are also appreciated.
