I don't have many books because of homelessness but a hardcover PD would be one I'd want. Along with hardcover BIP and Holy Nonsense, of course. I'd fucking find a way to make it work. Who needs clothes, right?

Yes, this belongs in Bring and Brag, but none y'all ever go there.  So:

I wrote and recorded 11 songs in 28 days.  It's rough, but it was fun.

I decided to take on the RPM challenge, which is to write and record ten new songs in February.  Much like NaNoWriMo, the point is to finish them, not necessarily to have them in perfect shape.  Creativity is the goal, rough edges accepted.

Please enjoy my... um... highly specific guitar soloing technique.  I also used that Thatcher speech, too.

Whoop.  Will listen to this tomorrow morning as prep for the meeting I have tomorrow afternoon.

Also, I feel you on the nobody looking at other forums thing.

I am 3/4 of the way through writing something that makes me feel filthy, and it's just sat there.  A few google spiders have looked at it, but meh.  And it's not really a facebook thing.

I have been reading it, just so you know! I'm waiting for the complete product -- I first saw it after you'd done two parts of it, and you successfully addressed some of my concerns with the first part in the second (and now the second in the third) so I'm waiting for you to finish it up before I make any posts in there.

It's an awesome read, for the record, and anyone who HASN'T seen it should go and see it.

I got all my move-in costs, and a small buffer just in case. Oh, just, goddamn. Work is the next big fucking task, but the job market weirdness favors me, and I am having enough good luck elsewhere...

That is good.


Pursued by sentient flies the size of cats, more later.

That is bad.  Up here, we use crossbows (broadhead bolts, of course) to deal with mosquitoes, so I imagine they would work against flies.  Throwing knives can work, too, if you're handy with them.  Small-calibre firearms (like a .22) are not effective, for obvious reasons.

It turns out javelins work too. The household has meat to spare now that we have brought low the giant alien bugs. Hopefully we won't become subject to an ancient curse of deathlessness and delusion or anything.



In other news, guess who has a JOB INTERVIEW on the 4th and a phone interview for NAME CHANGE SHIT FOR FREE on the 8th?

Yeah. It's me.

YOURE FUCKED FOREVER

Also I used to go by Nullified last time you were here, then before that a dozen names. Iíve been off and on homeless for ... years now. Joined originally in like 09, disappeared due to homelessness in 2010-ish? Maybe 2012-ish I was here I donít have clear memory of that time, then I rejoined when the Nazi shitfuck in chief happened, been here intermittently ever since ó more this time than my last stint of homelessness since I have a real smartphone and not a flip phone or a 20 dollar android thing.

I woke up to a request to schedule a job interview. Like literally ďoh Iím sorta awake what time is itĒ grab phone, squint at screen, ďoh shitĒ.

What the fuck. Uh, so!

Final update on that side of things....

I got all my move-in costs, and a small buffer just in case. Oh, just, goddamn. Work is the next big fucking task, but the job market weirdness favors me, and I am having enough good luck elsewhere...

I got my credit card.

Something else I got and was NOT expecting: healthcare.

I can finally, finally quit fucking smoking.

I literally have been chained to tobacco because of addiction not to the nicotine, but to the MAOI compounds in it — quitting is easy until after a couple days I completely breakdown into a compulsively self harming anxiety ridden emotional wreck and deal with suicidal ideation and all those other fun things that MAOIs are pretty good at fixing.

No more. I have known for a couple years now the silver bullet for my medication responsive mental health issues. And it’s FDA approved despite being relatively new, and it is a tetracyclic antidepressant that’s already used off-label for sleep aid and smoking cessation as well as its primary use for anxiety reduction. Bam, fuck yeah, half my shit handled in one fell swoop.

With healthcare and the end of my smoking habit, I have some extra money freed up. And with healthcare, I have access to hormones. And then the money to get them.

Good fucking god. If I can get 730 fucking dollars by tomorrow night I’m good to go for the foreseeable future and then some, and I already got 870 in a day so maybe I’m a bit overconfident but fuck. Yes.


EDIT:
REALIZED MY MATH IS OFF

630 DOLLARS AND I AM FREE, THAT IS THE MATH ISSUE I ALWAYS FUCK UP ON

Progress is looking good, I have 850 of the 1500 I need at this point and I have the rest of tonight and most of tomorrow to get the rest.

Bonus; I get my credit card today. So I can start building credit. So if/when this runs out? I can actually get a place to live instead of having the unenviable combination of a job and nowhere that will accept my money, AGAIN.

So I can say two cities have been good to me now: Boston and Chicago. If you have to be homeless and you have a support network for basic survival needs and you are able to do honestly really fucking difficult things like acquire and maintain legal identification, I recommend those two cities over the rest of em out there.

I have good news.

Today, I learned I was accepted into a housing co-op in Chicago. Ongoing costs are affordable, so I am just trying to make 1500 for initial move in and month-of-March survival appear.

Presuming I can manage that, I have met and talked with the members and this co-op is extremely well suited to me. Homelessness beaten??? PERHAPS. Itís also located conveniently for my purposes, and has things like a HOUSEHOLD FOOD FUND.

But forget about that, it has a KITCHEN, so I wonít be spending 50 godforsaken dollars a day ordering food because I have no way of fucking cooking, the additional food savings from the household food fund are nothing, fucking pennies, by comparison.

Woot! 

People often don't understand how much it costs to be poor.

A friend (thankfully nonjudgementally) asked me why Iíve been spending 30 dollars a bit under twice a day from this swanky hot dog place instead of just getting dirt cheap burgers from McDonalds.

She didnít realize I had been spending 50 dollars a day doing that, for about a month straight. Yeah, I save about ten dollars a day eating less healthy food that I am absolutely fucking sick of ó but thatís only if I eat all of the hot dog placeís food twice a day.

It actually lasts me one meal extra. Just a handful of leftover food to hit me for breakfast, and then if Iím careful I donít need to eat until dinner. Thatís about 10-ish dollars a day saved going for the fancy shit.

I wrote a whole bunch after this because I have a lot of vitriol stored up for the motherfuckers who say dumb shit about how Iím wasting my money, but I deleted it because Iíd hope everyone here knows better, except whatever libertarians we havenít chased away yet, who are simply too damn stupid to waste good rage on.

Thereís good news today, but after I got the good news I went scrolling through the job boards and noticed something strange.

There are SO MANY job listings. An unreal amount of them. Itís ridiculous. And I went and looked at them, and I noticed something very very strange.

Hereís an example. An ďentry levelĒ CSR position for a no name tech firm in Illinois. Starting pay: 24/hr. Remember: entry level customer service representative. Thatís a premium. And this company has good reviews on Indeed, so itís serious.

Requirements. 2 years CS experience, okay, thatís normal. SIX FUCKING YEARS of experience in the petroleum and wireless industries. That certainly fucking isnít.

The kicker is the number of positions open: 1.

This isnít an outlier. Most new jobs being posted are for single individual hires in ďentry levelĒ positions with incredibly weird and specific requirements, like an engineering degree for IT Helpdesk at a trucking company.

I have a suspicion the job market is currently being driven by COVID deaths, and theyíre trying to replace extremely specific people with cross-discipline skill sets rather than hire new blood. This is good news for me and bad news for everyone else.

I saw the funniest fucking thing imaginable today. In fact, just now.

On another forum, a thread was posted about Rush Limbaughís death and how great it is. Bunch of leftists and queers ó you know, freaks and deviants ó rejoicing. And some libertarian transphobe motherfucker comes in to say we should respect the dead.

Everyoneís been dunking on this guy, literally universally, for DAYS now, and one particular guy joining in made an awesome post with a sig saying that he was incapable of making good posts. I did a bit about extradimensional legal action, now itís ONE good post and it wonít happen again.

This libertarian motherfucker goes ďhow many have I made?Ē

Iím not going to answer him. I hope the thread dies with that as the very last post.
