Well I got my high school diploma, thats the good part. Lets just say life in Detroit is iffy. I call it Salem's Lot. And lets just say I kind of hate my step parents and and my step father struck me down, so I broke his nose.
Now for a long time I've wanted to run away. But thats being homeless. Which is exactly what I'm gonna do. However some folks have told me if I become homeless there is some advantage to it. They say if your homeless, you can do more than just beg money. You can travel from state to state and do odd jobs and rent a hotels. I might do that.
My neighbor says he did it, and i believe him. because he was homeless
And the reason I'm doing this is so I can find myself, because I feel trapped where. Everyone thinks I owe them a limit. so...
Is it the best way to do? because I'm out of options. I've got enough money though and i'm bringing my diploma, all in a backpack. and the next to West Virginia leave in a week

So your delibratly choosing to be homeless. Thats insane
I'm skeptical of the idea you could do odd jobs from town to town, make sure you're not romanticizing it too much. You might feel more trapped in that situation than this, and wouldn't have as many options, so make sure you look at the risks.
Listen, there are other paths to find yourself. There are other, safer, options. And, if you are still going to choose this lifestyle, don't do it alone. At least if a friend goes with you, you might be a little safer.
god bless ya, kid.
Do you have a car where you can sleep in at night, Because homeless people are prone to assault, death and anything in between by crack heads and people that just want to hurt people.
Do you have any money to survive? Begging will only get you a little bit of money for food and water.
Also get out of Detroit if you're going to be homeless for obvious reasons.
No one is ever going to take you in. Find a job and move out if you find it necessary to leave your house.
But yes. I think you should definitely reconsider, take it from M00ndragon69, Unassumption, or CrocoDuck. They seem like really smart people. I don't know you that well, but I think it would sad to hear one of our own go the way the dodo bird (... dead). Well, we would never know anyway.
But if you decide to walk that road, God be with me.
If you're considering being a drifter, do your homework first. There are lot of successful people without a permanent home.
If you have a job you can do at home (like web developer), it may even be cheaper to move from place to place than having permanent place you have to pay for.
You don't have to pay for hotel rooms. Have you ever heard of couch surfing? Check it out.
Every year there's an international volunteer camp being held in my town. Few volunteers from all over the world come here and do some work. Some of those volunteers don't have a permanent home. They travel from country to country doing menial tasks. Volunteer camp provides them with accommodation, food and even some pocket money.
Finding odd jobs yourself is hard. This way you can relay on other to find it for you.
As I've said. Do your homework, especially regarding legal terms. There are a lot of people doing it. Get in touch with online communities. And if you still think you're up for it, do it.
I leave on Thursday. But until then, I'm gonna post like crazy. And I'm truly sorry to your stories, M00ndragon69 and maytess12. I hope your friend finds his wait or you help him. And f*ck those punk ass bitches. I know you'll do your best M00ndragon69.
maytess12, sorry to hear yours too. Its shameful that people are still living in the 1950s. We have it all in Salem's Lot, racism, sexism, and homophobes. Don't you mean "God be with you"? I'm just picking on you. Your cool with me
Bonshaquitalafondria, maybe we will run into each other, maybe we will.
I'm prepared for the worst. I'm gonna quote Metallica: Life is ours, we live it our way. All these words I dont just say, and nothing else matters.
