He couldn't even do that right. He moved in with his dad and was booted out three months later for being an asshole.
He also lived in a motel room and a truck.
It's not like I will be here forever. This is a temporary situation. I think what horrifies some of you about this is that you are terrified that you'll be laid off, lose everything you have, and end up in someone's basement.
We know nothing about you. Chances are you are one of those sock fucking trevs who hasn't been laid in years and who posts about twinks or trannie porn. That also describes the new "norm" for the average poster here.
Which situation would the average male rather be in:
37 and have never been married nor had kids, with a good amount of student loans
37 and divorced at least once, in fear for his economic life that he's going to be laid off; two kids that he seldom sees and pays the equivalent of what I'll have to pay per month in student loans or greater; bad credit because of the divorce; was either underwater on his house, lost it through foreclosure, or has hardly any equity at all. This is the average situation of the average poster on this forum.
We know very little about your life. So to be fair, if you are going to criticize my life and suggest that I am making excuses, let's here about yours. I can question you and drill down to the truth very fast.
Nope. I would never apply for food stamps or section 8 housing unless I was physically disabled. As in a wheelchair.
It will likely take awhile to get a job but I'll get one and have to put in my dues like anyone else. I don't view life and "success" like the average person does. I look at things much, much differently.
That ability is my greatest asset.
Imagine being mentally free from the materialistic expectations of a poisoned culture. Pussy doesn't motivate me. Money doesn't motivate me. Possessions (save for books) do not motivate me. Trying to climb da corporate ladder does not motivate me.
What's even sadder is that most people would see this and instantly assume that there was an internal condition that "caused" this situation.
When in reality it is mostly a string of bad luck. Examples of this would include parents who refused to fill out financial aid forms, absolutely no help for school for anyone in the family, two abcessed teeth that blew up in my mouth a month before I started Berkeley; no money to fix the teeth until the dental insurance kicked in (and an FCer actually sent me $750.) Now that I finally have the education after ten years of trying to come this far the economy is the worst it's been since the great depression.
But all of this doesn't bother me. Like I said, I am not materialistic so I don't "need" things. In one more semester I will have my master's degree.
The two comics pinned up are 'the green arrow' and 'time bandits'. You have good eyes to make out the time bandits comic.
I have several other comics like those. I buy them for a few bucks each when I see them here and there.
What is also not in the photograph is a book from 1896 that has a white feather that was used as a bookmark. Bought that for $3. The feather might actually be from the student who used this music harmony book.
