Something old, something new…

I’m glad to relay that I’m struggling to get into basic IT type work  (helpdesk, desktop support, etc.) in order to establish a name for Absium. It doesn’t seem to be working! It seems people are saying: What is Absium? I told my wife if I make a commercial that I would have that as the tagline: Absium? What’s Absium? The catch would be someone saying it with distaste about the name. My plan was to start low in the IT field with basic work to establish a name and then be a leading expert in cyber security. But I didn’t plan to do all the basic IT work, but have a staffing agency. I thought I was better at advertising other people than myself, but am seeing right now it’s the same thing. So it seems I am going to have to do major networking. In the meantime I was thinking of learning programming. But then I started to have this sense that I’m to be doing something else: inventing!

The invention already exists, and is a vehicle. Until I have some type of prototype I don’t know if I should relay it. Well, if it’s looked up, I pray I get the credit. I plan on revamping
bikes, mopeds and motorcycles. They already exist, but I plan on making them do what isn’t conceivable: stand on their own without a kickstand! More to come on that subject…

I am also into trying new operating systems and figuring out which ones are the best and which would be the best for the public. You guys heard of android right? What if you could have a quicker operating system with less load time and better utilization of your computer/laptop/tablet’s capabilities than android?? Who would be interested? So I plan on looking into it, not only for myself, but also to support the general public and even businesses. If you’ve heard of Fedora, then you know there are companies using something besides Windows and Solaris (used on Apple devices).

Well, it’s come to the point that I have to go on public assistance. I have to see if there are truly benefits and get back to you since I have to submit some more documents in order to ensure I continue to get benefits from Uncle Sam. If anyone has experience, please let me know. I’ve even gone to food pantries since I have to wait till PA kicks in. I’ve met some cool people and see their diligence in getting food from food pantries! To give an example, there’s a spot in the Bronx where the food is given out from 8a-10am. But people are there at 5am to get the ticket to come back to get the food! The first 100 people are served, so imagined how dedicated the people are to get that. And people know where to go on which day to rack up! That’s dedication and great project management?


yesterday and today

Are the votes in…? heheh. I was mentally exhausted and wasn’t even aware yesterday. This is the second week that has happened playing in a chess tournament. I totally embarrassed myself and apologized to my opponent. He didn’t want me to apologize (he was being nice), but I had to since I played a severely subpar game. It was cool that I lost because he wanted to review the game with me and he started giving me his bio (Masters in Physics, made silicone drones). One would have to be an incredible liar if he was making this stuff up! We were reviewing the game and he was going over his thoughts and I was going over mine. Then more players came over to where we were reviewing the game and I got taught some fundamentals. One guy told me that I should play the Nimzo Indian (Aron Nimzovich’s opening). I relayed I was reading his book  (My System) and hadn’t gotten to that yet. So it works for me! I tried to take a nap on the train to rest my mind and thought I would be fully equipped come chess time. It seems my brain needed more rest as I saw when we were reviewing the game where my play got extremely bad…

Business wise, I’m still on the shoe string budget and don’t know any other way of getting an advance besides charging companies two weeks in advance for services. Then the quandary came about that if I do get some employees, not only do I have to pay liability and worker’s comp insurance, I would need general liability insurance! Folks, I’m collecting unemployment and the gov’t likes to take any money out of my hand that they can… $361 a week (given sporadically on a few occasions) isn’t beneficial. I have a family to take care of and that can’t even make the rent! I’m determined not to go on public assistance, so GOD willing we’ll see how this plays out. I’m believing that the business will be successful, since it wasn’t my will to do it. I was looking for a job and there was no door opening for employment (couldn’t even get temp work!). I don’t plan on robbing any banks or hacking any accounts (to get major capital) since I’m not able to get any loans. I asked for a loan and I have to have capital… If I have capital, I wouldn’t need a loan… There are even grants that NY can give and you still need to have capital!

I haven’t updated my website . I plan on adding another week and see how things go.

Till then,

good day.
