been working hard since theyres nothing else to do.

Well theres not much to do in this town since theyres so little live poker in the winter, except for mondays, wednesdays, thursdays, fridays and saturdays. u wont find games sundays or tuesdays, and u might not on mondays. So ive been spending my time on the BJ machine, where im up about $3000 since coming here. almost took a huge loss this morning of over $1000 but i recovered.

and since i cant "work" i might as  well put my vacation here to good use. the birth certificate i ordered which let me do it over the internet they called me about this morning. i should get it within 2 weeks since i paid a bunch of extra money for expedited service. then i went to the library to use their computer printer since ive got none and filled out the info for the replacement of the conseular report of birth abroad, which since it takes 4-6 weeks for processing is being sent to Rays house. i wrote out a $50 money order at the post office to the department of state after taking it to a notary public after i filled out my info and signed it in the library. lets hope they find it so i dont need the long complicated N-600 form which costs $600. i hope my mother was honest about the fact she registered me that night.

then i got a cashiers check for $1500 at a different bank than BOA since theres none here, and deposited it in my BOA account by cell with her help in taking the picture and scanning it. i will be saving the check a week then will be totally destroying it so it cant be found. BOA says to do this. i now see it as "processing" in my online bank statement.

then i opened up a bank account for $3000. i didnt think i would have enough ID, but she told me what i had was enough and she opened up an account, gave me temporary debit card, and ill get the permanent one in a week. i did make sure the manager would keep an eye on incoming mail since so many important things are enroute.

so ive got over $4500 less on me than i did, so now i wont be carrying nearly as much cash, giving me a lot more peace of mind. hopefully i wont take any huge losses where ill need to begin withdrawing it. ive not had any losses yet on it except for close to $200. every time i got stuck quite a bit more, i got it back. im overdue to lose.

then i found out today how housekeeping works, and where to throw out the garbage in which dumpster. not sure yet where to have alyisa send the books. if i stayed here longer i know of 2 motels not as good options due to location further out for $500 per month which is a bit less.

glad that im still over $20,600 even with all this done. remember, after i claimed the $1400 in free slot play, i still only had $18,200. this was before i paid the months rent too. so u can see what ive won on the VBJ. ive won far less than $200 at poker and seldom got to play

  1. Congratulations Tony on taking responsibility for your own self interests. Amazing what you can do to sort out your life when you devote yourself to getting it done, instead of making stupid excuses why you can't do it. Hopefully once you get all the documentation you need, you won't have this problem again, and it will be one less stressful thing for you to worry about. You said you nearly dumped over $1000 into the bj machine, so be careful. The warning signs are there. You really need to thank all the people here who gave you the advice you needed to get your documentation sorted out. Take care.

    1. im just afraid i wasted money for nothing. i dont know if ill be eligible for the counselor report of birth if they dont have a record of mom registering me. i still dont have a ss card, to order it by mail i need proof of this first. and i sure wouldnt be able to prove addresses. all i think ill get is a canadian birth certificate which proves nothing.

      while in the post office, i mailed off christmas gifts (money) to my mother and son too to get this out of the way too.

  2. Tony there must be a record of your birth registration for the USA somewhere, or else how could your Mother have managed to get SS for you before? I don't know, maybe I am missing something here, as I don't know the US requirements for SS assistance. At least you have made a start which is great.

  3. Tony, get yourself a Kindle. You can read 1000's of books on it for free. You can download other books for reasonable fees. Yoou won't need to carry all those books around that Alysia has. Kindle can electronically hold a truckload of books for you.

  4. I have a windows phone. I pay $45 a month for unlimited phone and internet. I have a kindle app on it with about 100 books. Lots of poker books and other gambling books. Plus lots of history and historical fiction books. Don't have to tote a bunch of books around.

  5. You can also get a kindle app for your laptop, or read them from Amazon's version of the cloud.
