I developed an emergency light based on a stack of fiber glass fleece in a plastic box. Ordinary fiber glass fleece is used. A glow-in-the-dark effect with red light is generated. Physically it is phosphorescence. I use such light in my windowless bathroom. I hope to assemble more of these emergency lights to sell them. Then a I have to found a startup. This would cost a lot of money.
But I am unemployed and have little money. Unfortunately I have a dept of a bank credit. So I have no chance to get money from a bank.
You may ask yourself why I am unemployed? I am fifty-eight years old. At this age it is difficult to get a job. For your information: I live in Germany, my mother language is German. I learned English at school. After a technical education I worked in the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (a facility for testing material in Berlin/Germany). The job was time limited. Then I studied without success. When I left the university I was thirty-five years aged. It became worse. I had to leave the student apartement. I got a flat by my girl friend. But after a quarrel I was a homeless man with a white bicycle and a bag with important papers. I went to the salvation army where I stayed for five months. Then I got a flat and sayed good bye to the salvation army. It wasn’t a bad time there!
Next I made a further education to office worker. One year later I worked in different offices but didn’t earn much money at that time.
In 2006 I made a further education in web design. This helped me to create my own homepage but didn’t help to earn money. I spent much time in internet cafes where I improved my english knowledge. Since 2017 I have an internet connection at home. My kitchen is my office. Never more these sticky internet cafes with people looking porn sites beside me.
2012 I took part at a gymnastical training for older people. With fifty-one years I was the youngest participant. In 2013 the jobcenter (office for unemployed) wanted me to work in a call center. The education was not bad. I visited several call centers. I couldn’t imagine to work there!
In 2014 I was a participant of a motivation training. What are goals in your life, where do you want to live in future. These are important questions no doubt. I had contact to other unemployed men and women. Finally everybody had to write a letter on blue paper with the topic: what do I hope to reach in the next three months.
In 2016 I learned English at comhard school. We looked 500 Days of Summer. I couldn’t stop the tears and hoped nobody would see it. The room was dark so nobody could see it.
In 2017 I had a job as office worker. I put aside a little money from this time. In 2018 I made a computer education. This didn’t help me to get a new job. In january this year I realized the girl that I suspected to live in the flat one floor above (just above my flat) moved away in 2008. I was shocked because in my phantasy she was always there when I came home. There was somebody waiting for me.
Seldom that I write such a long text in English. I hope you have enjoyed it. Any donation is welcome! donation
