Howdy folks, names Nicholas, aka Rusty aka Possum.
I currently live in Austin, I work full time as a pizza chef in a bar. Recently sober from booze and going through the steps. At the moment I'm renting a lease on a house, but after that's up everyone wants to go there separate ways leaving my situation up in the air. I'm hesitant about signing another lease elsewhere as I believe my time in Austin is soon coming to an end. I may turn back to couch surfing, but being homeless is a real possibility at the moment. I dont have a car or know how to drive so if I dont couch surf my only other options would be the streets, a shelter or trying to find a place to squat.

I've never really been homeless before so it's kinda stressful, and I dont want to leave yet because I still need to save money to even try to get anywhere else.

I'm also an aspiring musician and anarchist, I would like to form a punk band and travel, but atm my life is in a weird transitional period.

Hope y'all are well.

Homeless is more a state of mind. You're only homeless if you think youre homeless. I live without walls but im not homeless. The earth is my home. Walls are barriers shielding you from the perfectly imperfect reality of life. Do you want to be comfortable or adventurous? Hard to be both.

good luck with whatever happens, learning to drive ain’t hard in america as long as you have a place to stay for a few weeks and someone with a license to chill with. also good luck with your band! im in the process of trying to form one myself <33

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $45.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $45.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $45.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Just go to Barcelona and got lost on my way to my hostel. I walked into a corner store and asked for directions, and a guy who didn’t speak any English or know anything about me pointed to where i need to go and gave me a sticker that said “Everyone hates the police!”. I’m definitely in the right place😄!
Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
