    I read a darwinawards entry about a reporter that submitted himself to a homeless experience and ended up dying of cold.

    Don't be that guy. Take your precautions.

    yeah, i've been homeless before...for a couple weeks. gave in and went to my mom's house...then went and finished the degree, and now i'm back here.

    but my mom raised us all on her own, she doesn't need me burdening her...i'm a man, if i can't take care of myself...then maybe i should die? it's evolution, after all..

    i'll make it back...i mean, i expect to.

    i love libraries...you can spend the whole day there and never get bored.

    it's sad you'll never read all that has been written. that's what keeps me up at night...

    lol

    i expect to learn what i want. i'm tired of not knowing. i'm just forcing myself to know what i need.

    the cold...will be the hardest part. i'll buy loads of blankets.

    Well, you should certainly find out if a comfortable place to live is among your wants. I'm going to predict you will conclude "yes" before too long. We shall see.

    could you just drive somewhere warm? or are you tied to the city?

    I mean I've gotten pissed before and said I'm gonna go live on the beach and had this elaborate plan of packing a suitcase and just leaving, but I don't think I'd ever actually do that.

    you sure about that? I mean maybe the actions that the OP is going to take might not be wise, but content wise it's not the dumbest. I say this cuz I've made some pretty retarded threads

    Yea Uhh, it goes into the same range of dumb that any of these people chose to do when they decided to do these things too! Some graphic btw.

    Well, just living out of my car.

    I had two jobs...will still have one...and I finished my degree some time ago...it's neat, actually, while I won't be working...I'll be 'employed'. So, I don't really lose out on experience to employers. Just letting the experience build itself, at this point. Same with my 'non-business' business. I've been running a business for the last three years now...never mind the fact that I've done absolutely nothing. But, if and when I decide to rejoin expected society...I'll just say I was working on my business while working part time. 3 years entrepreneurial experience, a couple years working experience, an internship even and a degree. I should be hireable, even if I am homeless. It'll be a matter of cleaning myself up and interviewing until something breaks. And the more I wait, the more experience I get.

    Still, I'm lost in the world, paralyzed with indecision, on the verge of insanity it seems sometimes...so I'll go find myself, my sanity...something that will make me happy. If I'm so unhappy so as to be ok with potentially starving...well, I guess I'll potentially starve if it may then mean I might be potentially happy. You know?

    Would you?

    Tips, or advice?
    Sounds like treading water.

    Is your "non business" business ever going to turn into something tangible?

    Why are you focusing on part time employment? (resume` issues, personal flexibility etc.) I would highly recommend one full time job.

    It sounds like you have been sacrificing real opportunity to continue to work on your side business. If that side business isn't liable to ever pay you back for the effort you've been putting into it, I would recommend putting it on the back burner and trying to find one full time job.

    Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years? If you see yourself still working multiple part time jobs with not much to show for it, then certainly keep doing what you're doing.

    If on the other hand you want a little bit more stability I recommend getting off the fence and getting serious about full time employment.
