That would entirely depend on whether you have urban street smarts, or back country survival skills.

Hi, robert here, still etching out a living, surviving, being independant. In the hot Texas heat, hanging in there, until, something happens, maybe divine intervention, see ya all, down the road.

With hotter weather, coming, it might be better, to find a cooler place. For the summer.

Hey, I don't want to be a burden on society, I just want to walk away from the bull **** it causes! I don't care what your religion, skin color, or other beliefs are, just let me have mine. I am more than happy to help and nurture others, but do not want to be manipulated by your beliefs. In the perfect world, I would be able to live on what brings me joy or happiness and so would you.

Is it too much to ask that you let me be introverted and find my own self? I am so tired of being told do it this way or that by government, friends, family and others. I just don't want to be under their thumb!

I do not associate, with other homeless, they are bums, alkies, druggies, they like that lifestyle. I tell people, I am only homeless at night. It is a lonely life, I buy my ownclothes, take showers, at the gym, get haircuts, buy hygiene products, you could never, tell I was homeless, I still have a little pride left, and yes, it is embarrassing, I pick up work, here and there, movie extra, focus groups, clinical trials, have a smart phone, two of them, a tablet, and a month bus pass. I find that, I am harder, on myself, then society is, the best advice, I have, is make yourself, as comfortable, as possible, and get indoors, we are not animals, homeless life sucks, thanks.
Hi Robert. Just felt moved to respond to your post; I am a pretty good judge of character if I do say so myself, and your post saddened me that you are hard on yourself because I am too. I came to this site because I am homeless right now and I am trying to get on my feet. I can tell just from your grammar and phrasing that you are a very intelligent dude. Life is hard and the economy isnt great these days. Guys like you and I need to keep our heads up and keep on keepin' on. I good a good vibe from you immediately just from a comment and I wish you great blessings mah man. Hope you have a great summer !!
