Hello u all. Last month I got laid off from my job, and now I stay with my grandma. I like my grandma and all, but I miss being on my own. Plus I miss my city which is Little Rock, AR. I 've been living there for 7 years and I love it. My grandma lives in a small town 1 hour away from Little Rock. The population is less than 1,000. I have nothing against small towns, but its just that this particular town is very depressing and has too many drug addicts and alcoholics. I'm having a hard time adjusting even though I've been here for a month. As far as surviving financially, I just been approved for food stamps, they now call it SNAP. My income tax refund is about to come in. And I plan on selling blood every week to keep some money. I plan on living in parks and abandoned houses and buildings that are not owned by anyone. I will live like this until another job comes around, even if it takes months or years to find one. I'm 25 years old and I don't like the idea of living off of someone else because I'm a grown man. My family may not be pleased with me doing this, but they have to understand how much it hurts me to have lost my living territory ( if u recall, I use to sleep in my car while living in parks ). I don't have a car now, but that doesn't bother me, I just want to be back in Little Rock. I plan on living a solo life and devoting my life to spiritual peace. I guess u can say I'm trying to live like a monk. In this case, an urban monk because I will still hang out with family and friends. The thought of me living homeless and on my own brings me joy while the thought of me staying with my grandma brings me down. And just imagine if it gets worse and I have to live with my grandma for the rest of my life, or shall I say the rest of her life. How do u all view me wanting to be homeless and on my own rather than living with my grandma?
