My career as a property developer is unsuccessful because I cannot consistently stay employed or employers
are only willing to let me live at their places in lieu of payment for work,
and it is only getting worse with this recession. I am a fiercely independent man who refuses welfare or any SSI checks
from the government. The government already has done enough service for me and should not be obligated to support me.
And besides that, I already owe the US government around $30,000 acumilated interest for student loans.
Also, my career demands that I spend much time of my life
being lonely and isolated in rural areas. I really need to be around more people in my life.
Now I want to start a new career writing travel articles and doing professional accademic research.
Also, I am willing to volunteer for social charities overseas, to teach English as a second language,
do import/export business or even play banjo on the streets or in restaurants and cafes for chump change.
I am traveling overseas because I think that there are more opportunities for careers
that are related to my academic degree in anthropology and religious studies,
and I also don’t feel the social stigmatism of being a financially poor and single white man in his forties
like I do in the USA.
I know that I am smarter than people give me credit for; having scored as high as 155 on IQ tests,
but my academic interests have not been very conducive in making a financial living. I can manage to travel
on a shoe-string budget, but often I have to spend the night outside somewhere like in the woods
or under a bridge and limit my food intake to apples and oranges so that I don’t spend too much money.
I need a job or at least a financial safety net
so that I don’t go broke and become stranded overseas. I can live on as little as $1000 a month or even less.
So please help with whatever you can while I am making this career change. I can keep you informed
about my whereabouts and my activities.
I have aspergers, a mild form of autism that causes me
to be socially challenged when trying to relate to people to make new friends and business clients
and opening doors for new career opportunities
or making relationships with women. I have no wife and family of my own with children, and am now in my early forties.
Many people in my situation would drink themselves to death or shoot themselves down with smack or kill themselves,
but I refuse to give up and die with such little dignity. I would rather die for a good cause.
Perhaps I can start a new life if I can manage a successful career change.
