November 26, 2017 Net Worth Update

Hello Everyone!

This is my November 26, 2017 Net Worth Update.  However I am writing on December 8!

2017-12-09 01.42.14

I decided to take the flu shot to keep my job.  😦  I reasoned that I might be ok since some, but not all, of my coworkers seemed ok.  It was a very hard decision and has steamrolled my life for over the past year.

It was hard decision because these shots have dangerous side effects.  However, I have been running my experiment of the zero dollar paycheck and am finding how quickly I go through money even though my bills are low.  Because of this I was very hesitant to quit, I was just not ready!

2017-12-08 17.50.15

I have been living off of my paypal for the past two months and have almost gone through the original $2000.00.  Of course I have not been able to devote as much of my time to selling as I would like so my paypal could be in better shape.

The reason why I am living off of my paypal is because I wanted to see if I could pay my bills through online selling since I planned to quit my job in order to avoid the flu shot.  Instead of relying on my income from my regular job I wanted to place myself in the position of drumming up my own pay through a side gig.  With this plan I went ahead and contributed 95% of my pretax dollars to my 403b.  I have done this for the last four paychecks and plan to end the year in this manner.  I do not know if I will be able to continue this into the new year because my paypal is almost empty.  And since I am debilitated by the flu shot my online selling endeavor keeps getting sidelined…

But I have to continue to press on and sell online because I cannot take the shot next year.  Now I know what IT does.  I mean, I knew before, but now I will not have lingering doubts, wondering if, had I quit, would it have been in vain?  Did I quit for no reason?

So now I know, I know I cannot take it ever again.  It has robbed me of so much.  I have lost something, I just hope I can get it back.  I must get it back.  In order to help I have been juicing and eating very healthy, trying to get my immune system back on track because the shot has deregulated it.  I feel like a piece to the puzzle of my immune system was taken out and stolen from me.


I do not understand how doctors and the CDC can say that it is a protective shot when I feel so vulnerable and weakened by it??  It is not protective, it is destructive.  I have had tingling in my feet, depression, anxiousness, sadness, skittishness, tinnitus, angina, and have not been able to sneeze or cough since I had the shot.  Plus I feel like I am in an overall weakened state where I feel “less than” and compromised.  This “less than” feeling is quite surprising and I wonder if it is designed to do that???  I have hope this feeling will eventually go away.  This shot is a huge waste of time.  I was perfectly healthy last week when I got it, why harm a healthy person?  Why?  Why let my job hinge on this?  After all those years of study?


This is a little song I wrote about the forced vaccine programs they are starting.  Sing it to the tune of Beastie Boys “Fight for your Right”:

Your Employer says take the flu shot today!

But deep down you know “No Way!”

Mercury, Aluminum, Guillian Barre

Ways to make you crippled and maimed!

You gotta fight!  For your right!  To be healthy!

Phar-Ma-Ceu-Ti-Cal Companies!

They’re all in it for the greed!

Houses cars, granite and bling!

Using your body for their luxury!

You gotta fight!  For your right!  To be healthy!

Doctors…. and Nurses just stay away!

These goons are hitman for the FDA!

Firing those who won’t comply!

While exempting their Fam-i-Lies!

You gotta fight!  For your right!  To be healthy!


…Looking Ahead

I am now focused on forging ahead and planning for next year yet taking it one day at a time as I strive to get my mojo back.  Before taking the shot I had decided to stay at my current job until the age of 49 and thus take 4 more flu shots.  I now realize I cannot endure one more shot so I will not be doing this.  By staying until 49 I could have contributed regularly to my stocks and had a portfolio that provided enough income through dividend payments to support me monthly.

But I have hope that not all is lost.  A recent J Money post asked how long we could live on our net worth if we stopped working today?  I came up with at least 28 years for myself so maybe I am in better shape than I thought?  So for now I plan to leave next fall.  In the meantime I will contribute the max to my 403b and Roth and continue to reinvest the dividends.  I will also continue to pursue online reselling while looking for a “small” job and delve into my hobbies.  I really like gardening and raising monarch butterflies.  I am also very interested in naturopathy / natural healing.  My new life will center around these interests.

Have a good December!  Stay Free!
