What's up, the name's TAZALA WA MAWATH, I'm a freelance illustrator (pen-name: BLU-RUKUS), and as of September 10, was evicted from my family home of 9 years and am currently homeless in Atlantic City, NJ. I've been trying to make things work out since the month of October, but every effort I've made to either find employment or make some significant monetary gain seems to be squandered. My main concern at the moment is to find shelter, however, for infestation reasons, I'm avoiding the homeless shelters here like the plague, so whatever help I can get regarding shelter would be appreciated. I'm also taking commissions at the moment, so message me if y'all need something.

Maybe drop the quasi-swastika symbol and your luck might improve, OR, conversely, go full-on nazi & you may get some takers - however, probably not on THIS site...

Lol I think Juan kinda has a point, but it's kinda beside the main point.
Some advice that might actually be more helpful, is to do what I'm probably going to have to do this weekend because it's cloudy with a chance of iceballs outside, is to find any post office with public lock boxes. I almost forgot someone told me that they stay open 24hrs to give unlimited access to your belongings, but it's a safe place to stay warm for the evening, albeit very litted, but a toboggan pulled over your eyes beats that.
There's always a chance cops could come ask you to leave, but I've slept in one before, and mostly the only person that's gonna disturb you is the morning janitor that'll wake u up alil before 8am, before the office opens. Other than that, if you can scrap up 20/night usually, you can usually find a hostel, and if you don t have that, but up a plasma bank--long as you have your ID & Soc. Card, and proof of even your former address, you can stand to make a quick $250 after like 4 visits. Good luck bro, I've been & still am there, but we'll survive.

Check the hours online. Big cities will have 24hr but even some decently sized college town po box areas close at 5pm sadly.

Appreciate the help from everyone so far, forgot to mention, I'm currently moving around with someone who's been helping me out, but things have been tough for us out here. Anyone here from AC who could help out in this situation? Donations are also accepted, if you'd be willing to help out (just message me for info). Also putting out there again that I'm currently accepting commissions and doing $15 sketches to help out my situation.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
