It was a bright and sunshiny Sunday evening. The pizza was
ordered, the black label drafts were flowing… across from us sat a man with far
too much butt crack showing, but the alternative views were Cape Town traffic
or the smoking mob of under-agers out the back. It was the perfect setting for
an epiphany. They always come when you least expect them.
I’m no exactly sure how you take five and a half years of
random gypsyism and turn it into an exciting income generating backdrop. I can’t
really remember all that much from varsity days and I’ve been out of touch with
the real world for so long that I’m not sure I can return to a former type of
employment. My major skills are falling, licking things, not dying, and

creative on this endeavor!
I’ve looked at the figures and will probably rule out cake
sales and begging at the robots (traffic lights) but to succeed, it’s going to
take every other sort of everything. I’ve decided to make Cape Town my base and
also decided that I’d prefer not to be arrested, lose my soul, or die – but everything
else goes.
I have no idea who ever takes the time to read these blog
posts (if anyone) – but if you (whoever you may be) have any suggestions,
please send them my way – I will give them a shot!
I tried really hard to make New Year’s resolutions this
year. But I’m a goal orientated person… I need them.  And that’s why this is the year I become a
