Just never made an account. Cool community though, so here I am.

I'm a good ole Texas boy who got too deep into anarcho-communism which led to him dropping out of college to be a dirt bag. Been vagabonding for like two years or something. Been in the mindset for far longer. First year was on and off with hitchhiking being my introduction. Second year was living out of my prius and backpacking through Asia.

Really looking to long-term squat some place in the DFW area soon, which is what brought me back to these forums. Also been thinking about just renting a house and then airbnb-ing it out while I live in the backyard and inside the house when available. Soooo, if y'all got any links to resources or have any advice/tips yourself, lemme know.

Anyways, I know y'all don't really give a fuck and neither do I, but glad to be here.

I deleted myself
That is like the creepiest title ever.. but hey, welcome!

That airbnb thing sounds brilliant. I may consider doing something like that myself. I was considering buying property and renting it out but it might be hard to get away from it if the tenants needed me to check on the house for some issue, you know.

Feel free to DM me, I have some ideas on housing/renting, etc.

Hey, man, just noticed your profile pic and the Thai jumped out at me. Thailand has to be one of my favorite places on the planet. Never got as far north as Chang Mai, though. Ayutthaya was about as far north as I got. Why are you coming back to the US? If you've learned enough of the language, you probably can hang in TH for a while.

Oh man, Chiang Mai is great. Nice mix of modernity and dirtiness. Incredibly cheap too, as is most of Asia. I had an apartment in the "hip" part of Chiang Mai for $80/month and I ate out for like $4/meal. If you eat local cuisine, you can do $1/meal. You prolly already know that though.

Well, the plan was the set up base in Chiang Mai, but after a few months in Asia you really start to miss home. I did, at least. I love Chiang Mai and all of Asia SO MUCH, but the US is my home, man.

I completely understand. I had the same thing happen in Haiti too. Was in country long enough that I was missing the conveniences of home, that and I got wicked eczema on my hands. The rash cleared up pretty much as soon as I got into dry air, that was probably the most frustrating. Being away from home is hard especially when you don't speak the local language. At least you can say that you've experienced something most people never will.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
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.
