I am enjoying my life in Dubai as a freelancer. However, the Australians ruined my freelancing! They damaged my freelancing here and therefore I am now poor! I am SO poor.
In my other post I wrote if I become poor I can live in a shared house or similar, but then when I actually became really poor I didn’t want to actually really live in a shared house! I couldn’t. I am a snob! Even when I was poor in Australia, again because the Australian’s ruined my life hence I am living in Dubai to be away from them, I lived in my car as I was never one to live in housing commission or a share house! I would save my last 20 bucks and go down to the coffee shop and sip my lattes and then go and camp in free camp sites rather than ever live in low level housing! No way!
The other night I officially ran out of money and I was stuck at a hotel in Ibn Battuta! I was so humiliated and I didn’t care. I rather be a humiliation and be humiliated sleeping on a chair at Costa coffee in a hotel, than sleeping in a room with other people I don’t know! Anyway, I spoke to the hotel employees and they gave me a free dinner, and just let me stay in their hotel lobby / costa coffee that night. Then I left at around 4.30am and hid in the parks until the trains took me to a Starbucks where I had my coffee and did my freelancing! I did ring the police and they told me to go to Deira as the hotels were cheaper and I was like – NO – I am not! I will just sleep in this hotel lobby.
I have started selling my things with the option to buy them back in 30 days. I only have one laptop and some jewellery left to sell. An Egyptian bracelet and some gold jewellery. I am sure I will not get much for the jewellery or the laptop! I sold my things and used the money to pay for more hotel rooms, food and also put money on my NOL card so I will always be able to travel on the metro if I am stranded.
So now I am extremely poor and I made the choice to live it up in hotels until I completely run out of money and things to sell and then hopefully I will be rescued and saved! Some nice rich person will arrive and rescue me before I become officially homeless! He will make me a princess and rescue me from my poor humiliations.
What happens to expats in Dubai who have no money? Well I spoke to the Australian embassy, as I had a meeting with them telling them I am never Australian ever again, and they said I will end up being sent back to Australia or possibly put in the slammer. I said, I am not Australian and that embassy can go rot in hell and I rather go to jail here and die here than go back to their country that ruined my life! So, I am excited about what might happen in the future. I could be rescued or I could end up in prison. Or I might get another citizenship that’s not Australian! I emailed four embassies to ask for political asylum and I haven’t had a reply yet.
I am currently at the Dubai Marina and then I am going to Barsha for a few days. I might get rescued soon. Or I might have to sell more things first before I get rescued! I might actually make money on my freelancing or get paid out from the Australian government whose citizens came to Dubai and pretended they were ME and stole my holidays and opportunities! The Australian’s came along, ruined my opportunities and reputation and so now I am living off the sales of my technology in part luxury, well budget mid range hotels, until I am rescued!
I am going to do some freelancing!
