The streets today wereÂ quieter than usual. Crime has been rising in my city by the hour.Â Each day I hope that there will beÂ some relief from the constant downpour of evil, but I find myself often disappointed.
Iâ€™ve been starting to wonder why I picked a place like this to set up shop. There are plenty of other troubled neighborhoods that could use a good man but I ended up here. Am I suicidal? No. I guess I just enjoy a challenge. Â My life can be difficult at times, but Iâ€™m not the kind of guy who just gives up when things get tough. I guess its just pride that does that, but if Iâ€™m still breathing, Iâ€™m still trying. At least thatâ€™s the kind of guy I want to be.
Being an entrepreneur has its challenges thatâ€™s for sure. I love my old book store here in the city. With the economy as bad as it is, I donâ€™t get many people in here but Iâ€™m surviving. Even though things are getting worse Iâ€™m not worried. Iâ€™ve got plenty of friends and connections to keep me floating when times get tough and with business so slow, I have plenty of time to finish my apprenticeship.
