  1. I don't know how to take what you said, but my initial thoughts and response are not good. I'm not on any sort of welfare, nor is anyone who needs it a burden on the system. It's exactly why the system is in place. I mentioned I've been planning to go for years now, which implies I've done my homework. I know exactly what I'm getting into with or without savings or plan. I know what kind of resources are there, I know how much it costs to live there, and I know it's not magic to go and turn rags to riches. That's an unrealistic expectation that I doubt anyone has wanting to move there. I am 21, yeah, but it doesn't have anything to do with anything at all. I appreciate anyone taking the time to post, but I don't think the way you approached with your criticism was helpful to say the least.
  2. It's been my goal to move to LA for the past few years, and I'm afraid if I don't just do it I'm never gonna get there. I'm a very patient person, but there's a limit. I have no one supporting my ambition to do it or believe I can. Right now I'm focusing on finding a job to temporarily afford food for myself and to contribute so I don't find myself on the streets. It's been a very rough month, but I think it's going to get worse for me in the near future before anything good will come out of it. I'm strong, though, and I've been homeless before. I know I'll survive - no matter where I'm at. There's no alternative for me. My family and I have been through a lot since I was a child, and we've adopted the phrase "adapt or die" and it holds a lot of weight. My friend's lease is up at the end of September, and they have no intention of renewing it. My friend is moving to Canada, and her housemates are going their own way. I have until then to figure this out and get myself out of this situation. I felt like I had plenty of time, but I found this out a month ago and I've not gotten anywhere. Faking a smile is getting harder and harder. My little brother gets out of his juvenile detention center sometime in October, and he has no one when he gets out. Our family is scattered and not communicating, and I feel like I need to do something to help him and myself. We're really all we have.
  3. Please share, fellow heroes! gofundme.com/5w5w6eyb48

  4. Things are pretty bad right now for me, especially now, and as a result I started a gofundme as an attempt to get me to Los Angeles, California (or at the very least try to survive with). The details can be found here! gofundme.com/5w5w6eyb48 You can also donate to my paypal if you'd like at izzyelewis@yahoo.com I'm really sorry if I offend anyone by seeming like a beggar, and it's not my intention. I definitely don't want to pressure anybody into anything, but will humbly accept anything as well. You're a hero either way. I'm not in a safe environment anymore, and I'm being stalked & threatened. I'm afraid for my life, and I've become desperate to get out of here. Anyway, thank you again for taking the time to read about my story! Love you all!
  5. Even if you aren't able to provide, you would be a hero to me if you shared this: gofundme.com/5w5w6eyb48

  6. I'm so so sorry for not updating 'til now (and this isn't even an official update). I feel like it's too much stress to try to force myself to update every day and all that, and keeps me from being focused on the actual tasks. I apologize for that!

  7. Definitely, I have two main goals right now which is to lose weight/get fit & get out of the homelessness situation I find myself. Easier said than done, though! After reading about the separate branches, the Air Force just seems linear to my interests so it was the choice that stood out the most. If you asked me a couple years ago though I would've never said Air Force.
  8. Thank you, I appreciate the compliment (especially since I'm working on a novel - talk about a confidence boost). Most definitely I'll be popping my head into the Adventurer's Guild and see what's what. Stay tuned for a week 2 report!
  9. It's been a terrific week. A few of my goals may need some editing based on my findings, but only minor things! I've been out walking practically every day, and always between 2.5-3 miles each. It's been a very inspiring journey so far, and it's only one week in! I had to sacrifice my phone's service in order to buy very basic groceries (I bought two dozens of eggs, some cans of tuna, sweet potatoes, a bag of chicken breast, and green beans). Nothing fancy, and only at a nearby convenience store since I don't drive to travel to an actual grocery store. It's a sacrifice I had to make because I'd rather lose service and only be able to use my phone with Wi-Fi than starve. I have no idea how long the groceries will last, but hopefully long enough. It's definitely not a nutrient-packed variety, but it'll get me by. I actually cooked eggs and tuna for breakfast this morning. I didn't know how it would turn out, but the mixture was actually delicious. Definitely going to be treating myself to that more often. Though I haven't read anything (I'm a failure on that side quest so far - though it may be changing), I have started working on a new zombie apocalypse-based novel. I actually have another topic in the Book Club inviting people to participate in the experience with me by allowing them to become characters (or make a character) in the universe. If you're interested in that, please check it out! I'd love to include you. To finish up this "end of the week post" I'm going to post some of the pictures I've taken on my walks. I hope you like them! http://imgur.com/d844b1y http://imgur.com/EwwJloY http://imgur.com/LX03Gii http://imgur.com/XUA4bwk http://imgur.com/kkzp6pH
  10. If you'd like to take part in the zombie apocalypse, check out my "I want you!" topic in the Book Club. You're all so amazing and wonderful, keep it up! <3

  12. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! This morning, for the first time since I started my walks, I ran! Well, I wouldn't really call it running. I jogged? It was at a very slow pace for jogging, but it was the same motions, and faster than I walk. My heart rate sky-rocketed, and I felt so good about my walk this morning. Another two and a half miles today (with three from yesterday morning). I've never been so excited to go out and walk like I have using the Zombies, Run app. Not only that, but it's inspired me to work on a writing project! I want to write a zombie novel! Or, at least, a first chapter to see where it leads me. By immersing myself into this universe I've been able to see things from the perspective of a survivor, and I've been photographing my adventures. I've come up with a general premise that I'm very excited about, and that's going to be my project for today. That, and I have to read an entire book this weekend because I've yet to do that. Job hunting is still difficult, and I've been turned down by three places so far. Desperate isn't even appropriate anymore.
  13. It definitely is intimidating. I have social anxiety so the thought of meeting/talking to new people makes my heart race almost to the point of immobilization. I was invited to the bar last weekend by a stranger to hang out with him and a few friends, and I had a panic attack over it xD So definitely! I appreciate the comments. I love comedy; friends always tell me I should be a stand up comic, but the second they say "stand up" I'm already exhausted of the job. On a more serious note! Wednesday Today I decided to start the basic bodyweight training exercises, and man I'm glad no one was watching. I couldn't manage to do a single push-up so I resorted to doing them on my knees and not even that was easy. Definitely couldn't get myself all the way down (well when your stomach hits the ground before your chest or nose you have a problem). Don't even get me started on the lunges. It looked like I was suffering a knee injury and was trying to find something to lean up against while I fell to the floor. I think I managed to do one correctly? For some reason one side of my body can do them a whole lot better than the other. Any thoughts on how to ease my way into these things while still getting a good work out from it? The most successful part of this workout was my warmup because I decided to get some dancing in. After the travesty that was my bodyweight training I kinda fell asleep for a little while 'til the sun started going down and it started to rain. That's when I wanted to go outside and do my 40 minute walk (it was 90 degrees out earlier in the day and that just doesn't sit well with me). It was very successful, I always enjoy my walks. I managed to walked a mile and a half, though for the entirety of the day I walked almost three miles, so yay me! Side note: I'm starting to get desperate with the job hunting because I've ran out of food entirely, and I know the fact that I'm not eating is going to hurt my body more than it's going to help. I applied for SNAP, but I have yet to get the papers to verify my information and it's been over a week. I'm so stressed out because I also found out that my friend's lease ends at the end of September, and they're all leaving (my friend is moving to Canada), and I have no idea what I'm going to do.
  14. Thank you so much! I'm an aspiring writer, so that definitely means an awful lot to me. I'm going to do my best, definitely.
