Meet Martina Alansky
What she did with her first year of UBI checks was start a small clothing company.
“I was in tears when I realized I could pursue my childhood dream of designing a clothing brand despite working a deadend job as a waitress. I now have enough money to pay for the material and manufacturing and bring to fruition my clothing designs. I thought I would never do it…..*she begins sobbing*
“I thought this is it, you know? Me working double shifts at a diner to pay for my apartment. How could I pursue a dream, you know? When all my money goes to that.”
I looked at her clothes and noticed that they were indeed stylish. And I was happy for her that she had been able to make them.
“Even if I don’t turn a profit…I’m just glad I could do something I love and put my creative product out there, you know? And it would have never been possible without the Freedom Dividend.”
Wow, I said. That really hits home.
After I complete 1,000 posts
That’s it. I’m out of the game
I will start a new blog
And write more of the same
That’s what I do. I’m a lowly blogger
In my yearbook I predicted it
Yet I like to think I am
1,000 posts. Damn I really aim high
When I leave the room they think
Damn. What a strange guy
Hell of a day
I got a lot accomplished
Like what, for example?
Oh come on man!
It’s a writer’s thing
You wouldn’t understand
I told Anita, drink your margarita
And I roofied it
Now she’s asleep in my car
That is the way
