I'm struggling in Houston flying a sign due to a lot of competition. Is there a part where I'll do better or any other tips? Would I be better off going to Austin or somewhere else nearby?
Also, does anyone know where I can get some weed? Haven't smoked in a month.
Thanks!

Maybe a "need work" sign infront of a hardware store would get u a way to earn it n set u apart from people just asking for money but idk what kinda sign u fly.

Been flying a homeless veteran sign but I was actually thinking of flying a need work sign in front of home depot cause I'd actually prefer work over what I'm making now. Also, been thinking of trying a funny sign.

Also, side note.. cicis pizza has a competition where you and a partner enter a competition for $50 and if you can finish this huge pizza and two 32 oz drinks in an hour you win $500. I can eat a ton so if anyone is in Houston and can eat like a champ, let me know. The pizza is thin crust and think this won't be too hard. We both put up $25 and split the cash.

It's great that you would rather work than sit around all day with a pity sign.
If you are anywhere remotely working class, Home DeepThroat is gonna be stacked with competition.
Just walk around to local businesses and ask if they need help.
Definitely rock that pizza gig, too.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.

You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
