Officially Homeless

I don’t know if I should be patting myself on the back for finally mustering the courage to go through with it or just wondering how the hell I got to this. I finally left last night after 3 days delay. I don’t know how I got to this. Actually, I do. There is no future for a loser like me. Just can’t see myself anywhere in 5 years. I figure this is the end. I just want to spend the remaining 4 months living in the fantasy world of Lord of the Rings before I go.

Damn it’s so cold in the night. Worst night of my life. I didn’t even get a wink of sleep. I was always shivering. It was about -1 degree. Geez. Why is it so cold in the middle of April? Is April always this damn cold? Pathetic blanket I brought too. My toes felt so numb. I felt every waking moment of that damn, cold miserable night under that bridge. I wish it was warmer.
Eh, what’s the use?

Hey brotha, thanks for sharing your misfortune. How are you keeping now? Did you ever make peace with your folks?



My homeless days are over...for now heh heh.

Oh yeah I made peace with them. But I can't go back there. I am a world class ****up. I am glad to hear that you are no longer homeless. I wish you the best!

Thanks. You too. Hope to hear more from ya.

Hey my friend I have been there. Came home drunk and stoned and told my mom something awful, and she told me to GTFO. So I grabbed a duffel, packed a few blankets (Colorado winter) some canned food, etc. Slept under an overpass, too cold, too noisy. Slept at a construction site, too cold, too hard. Finally found a collection of large wooden boxes by some railroad tracks. Warmer, anyway. Stole my food to live, filled up water in the bathroom of mcdonalds. Carried a razor knife with me, but mostly the other homeless people wanted to help. Years later, after having a place to live, a good job, I threw it away for a dream and lost everything. I knew better. I have been taken in by an elderly family and I help them with their food ministry and at the church. There is hope in God but the waiting....

Nah, just till 11 as well. But like I said, there's a little lounge just outside the library. I sleep there.

Hahaha.. 'HK masturbates here' :P

Is your library open 24/7? Our was only open til 11pm, so it would be really easy to sleep. I'd grab a couch !

Darn IHMLS. Where did I go wrong?

There are actually. Just this morning, I took like a 5 hour sleep in this little dark corner on the underside of the stairs. Not bad. The little graffitit warning "HK masturbates here" was a little discouraging, but I figured his **** must have dried up by then XD. It wasn't such a bad spot.



I should remember to switch up however. There are several spots like this so that shouldn't be a problem.

Find a corner, or sleep in the bathroom :)

My library had rows of cubicles.. I slept there while hidden during several long days.

There must be some good hiding places in your library !

****, I think one of the library book-stackers is on to me lol. I'm like in the library on that 5th floor everyday!

Ahh, yes, 'freegans' do it not out of need, but principle. Perfectly good food gets thrown out of grocery stores every day, and these people just take it right out of the bin. For free !

Yeah I bet that you could sleep at school for a long time. Even when I was no longer studying at my uni, I would stop by during nightly walks and use their facilities when necessary :P

As long as you look confident (like you know that there is nothing odd about you being there), nobody is going to question you. It's funny.

Okay, glad you planned it out a bit. Good fortune to you.

Damned laggy computer!



Oh ****, you just reminded me of the shoe-stealing crackheads! Honest to god, that was one of my "fears"--that some ******* would steal my shoes in the night.



I THOUGHT I thought of everything. I was hoping it would be a little warmer. ******* crazy weather. But I don't think I'll try sleeping outside again, or not for a couple of weeks. Just until it warms up. There's a nice lounge area (where I'm typing right now) where I'll be sleeping. I think I brought enough ****. My freakin' bag weighed like 33 pounds! (to me that's a lot). I brought a couple of shirts, deoderant, shampoo, multivitamins, and even my electric shaver.



I won't hesitate to eat out of garbages in the cafe (as long as nobody's looking). Man, they throw out a lot of food.

Have you planned it out very well? Hope you brought more than a blanket, and at least saved up a bit of scratch first. If you really want to be alone and be without a home, at least go to the woods. Better place to live out the adventurous fantasies of them Hobbits. Also, you will avoid the crackheads stabbing you in your sleep for your shoes :P
