RE: Homelessness
I was technically homeless when I went to North Dakota. I had nothing but my vehicle and a trailer filled with paintings.

I got a gym membership so I could shower and work out and then I went to a coffee shop and filled out applications online.

I ended up getting a place to stay after sparring the local pro fighter and tapping him repeatedly.

I had almost nothing after a year of being on the sidelines and recovering from surgery.

We were meant for far more than to suffer in our self created prisons only to die alone. It doesn't have to be that way. It never did.

Have you met a homeless person that actually was trying to rise get out of their situations and did any of them actually succeed?

What did these people typically do for food and other necessities? There's this one blonde middle aged lady who always wears a head scarf and has outfits that are way nicer then I would expect for someone who is homeless who I've seen get free stuff from the Starbucks across the street from the Market Street mission though I'm guessing she got cut off cause I haven't seen her there in a long time while before I would see her hang out there constantly - especially during the winter.

Also, do you know if the old bald guy that always hangs out at Starbucks either reading books or playing Yahtzee is homeless or not? I'm not really sure since he doesn't seem to have be quite as haggard looking as some of the other homeless people I see but I always see him wearing the same outfit every time and he also carrys around a bunch of plastic bags at all times - you know someone is probably homeless if he's lugging around a bunch of bags of any sort.

The blonde lady you are talking about is a hooker. That's why her clothes are nicer than you'd expect. I've had flirtatious conversations with her, but I would never hit it as I've heard it's so diseased it looks like a cheese pizza with everything on it. That was 5 1/2 years ago, I can't imagine what she looks like now.

Damn I would have never guessed assuming we're thinking of the same person. She's pretty wrinkled up right now - looks like she's in her in mid 50s. I have no idea what her actual age is though. I haven't seen her try to hit up any Johns - she seemed just like another typical Morristown homeless person trying to get by. I see her trying to sleep on the benches of either the Green or the benches on South Street at night.
She is/was a drug addict. She doesn't need to hit up Johns because she's known in the drug addict community. I'm pretty sure she's in her early 50s now.

I ended up getting a great job when the guy who ran a company came into the gym and we sparred.

But there are some fake beggars out there. You can tell that some people are bullshitting when they beg for money by their body language and appearance.

All of this homeless talk makes me want to buy a trailer home just in case.

Haha.

Some guy asked me for a few bucks to buy some food.

I gave him some.

30 minutes later on my walk back I see him eating a McFlurry.Dodgy
