I need something like this!

I just did a search for mail forwarding and myrvmail.com looks pretty cool. It gives you a physical address in Florida for benefits. It's $9/month but looks like it has some great benefits for travelers.

I have a ups mailbox. $20 a month. they'll also take any packages and hold them forever. they'll forward mail for postage costs. (also serves as 'proof of residency' in a few years for when I decide to buck up and go to college...)

there's also general delivery if you're going to be in one place for awhile.

You can have mail sent to your name as "general delivery" to a post office in any city. You just have to show ID to pick it up. I also use a UPS store box but they legally are required to have proof of a physical address (lease/utilities) for you to open one & forwarding through them is not super cheap. Awesome that you're trying to keep writing your friend in jail btw....

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.

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.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
