I started with a criminal record for petty narcotics pos and a 'computer tresspassing' record guaranteeing me unemployment almost everywhere except manual labor. I was also living in a SRO in the worst area you can ever imagine, had no money, huge debt and couldn't even finish university so washed out in the second year due to poverty.


Any job will do. Some shitty manual labor position is great because then you also get some activity in so you aren't a fat bastard.

Easy jobs to get are landscaping (usually pays under the table cash), construction clean up, warehouse, or whatever you can find on your local Craigslist 'gigs' section. Alternatively there's the dreaded nightshift tech support. Look around for these on CL, or move to somewhere in your country where the jobs are. In Canada this means terribad mining and oilfiend work but it pays like $40/hr and there's nothing else to do up there, perfect for studying.

For me, I got a job at the post office and delivered mail, which meant I got off early and had lot's of time for school. Also consider institutions that will pay you to learn a trade, such as telephone companies and whatever else.

True getting job in India is difficult so many go to foreign countries. Old people sit n insufficiently grossily slowly work just to hold their position n the much more capable youth sit at home(part time job here is limited very limited) so basic average person is bachelor . M 19 n jobless (not bachelor yet) if i need to earn i may need to take up call center jobs which I won't prefer(working 10 to 12 hrs for 150$ a month is waste of time i would rather b bachelor with extra knowledge crammed in in extra time ) i m pretty sure in the rat race i m gonna b left behind n trampled upon

Food tips from studentanon,

I'm currently studying full-time and I hit some church nearby or my old youth shelter for a box of food for 5$ each. 1 per week, per location if I need to. Quality obviously varies (spoilables like veggies/fruits or lightly damaged non-perishable products that is not deemed ''sellable'' on shelves by the grocer's quality standards. Always rely on your judgement about the spoilables you get, cut off whatever part is spoiling and you should be fine.

What I mean by lightly damaged products is products whose's label/box could be damaged like a can with a bump in it or have light cosmetic damage on the item label (even printer malfunctions like a label for canned corn in black/white color only instead of being in color can be donated/sold for less because it looks that way. I seen a few of those at wholesale stores for dirt cheap. The product itself is fine. Those are obviously safe to eat but they are not sold by groceries and some will therefore donate them to charities and wholeplace food stores that are open to the public.

Cooking a whole chicken when you can get them on sale can serve for several meats. I often added some to ramen with veggies and eggs. Very filling for under a dollar.

Cut off the sugary shit as much as you can. You'll just crave more after consuming it.

Get a rice cooker and those big 18kg bags of jasmine rice plastic bags. You will make a lot of those with it and save a lot of cash than just buying the smaller 3-4 lbs most stores have bags at a time. Visit the asian market if you have any around. You are bound to find them.

If you really crave some fucking fries, make them yourself. Go buy a 5lb potato bag for 6-7$ and a deep-fryer if you have to. Potatoes last a while and you'll get your money's worth than buying a frozen bag of ready-mades. After making them yourself for a while, you won't be that interested in take-out anymore because you can make that burger at home and therefore, save that money.

Good luck.

How I lived Homeless for 4 years 17/09/18(Mon)23:41 No. 3083 ID: 7617e0 [Reply]

FIRST OFF choose your place to live carefully. This isn't just where to sleep but the city or town to live in.

Find a city or township that has buses. Ride um for a while and see if you can hide some where near by. This can mean an old abandoned building or the forest. I've had bad luck in buildings. It's easy to come home and find your shit gone or someone having stolen your spot.

Honestly the woods are the best. Find a big tree. Hide a rope ladder and it's just like having a tree house. This guy has a great guide on how to make a simple sleeping hut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQe8N--CpB0 Don't build anything visible or complex. You want something you can lay down at night and sleep. Hide it well.

SECOND, never leave your shit laying around. You'll loose it. Carry it with you. When i was begging for money and sucking cock for food money i had one bag. In it was a change of cloths and my tablet. That was it.

MAKING MONEY. This is up to you. Farmers pay okay for a hard day of work under the table. You can beg too and this will make you the most money. You can also sell your self but keep in mind you're gross and smell like shit. And the people that fuck homeless people arn't gonna be the cleanest. Avoid STD by offering blow jobs only. I'm an ugly guy and I was getting 10-20$ a blowjob. Not something I look back on with pride but it feed me those nights.

TECHNOLOGY! Get a cell or tablet. Ask to look at lost and founds. Ask if they found any cell phones or tablets when asked to describe it tell um "Uhh well it was black..." That's how i got my shit acer tablet. Enough to get free wifi in hotspots.

FOOD. Taco bell and mcdonalds are expensive. You wanna keep sucking cock for 10-20$ a pop for the rest of your life? NO! Fucking save your money. There is free food out their. Look up survival and eating off the land guides. Lot of places you can eat fucking weeds. And if your built your sleeping base there your set.

Churches and bazaars or what have you give out free food some times. This is when you use that phone or tablet to join facebook groups. Hell add homeless buddies to message apps.

I gave up work in a warehouse, because they were moving further from where I live. The commute would be just ridiculous, and the expenses - double, if not tripple! Being a drone is not OK in my book.
So I have a choice now - mooch off of girlfriends parents I live with OR take a part time job, as a "sanitary technician" in a local police station.
I want to know your opinion, everything really. Until this day it never occurred to me, that I would also have to clean shitters (which I'm quite fine with, and proficient, also). So lets hear it! Any cleaners here, part time workers or both?

I don't know how you people even drone. It is terrifying to even watch. I've got an idea that maybe your folks will help you to save up a bit so to study online or something so to work your way up qualifications to Plus grade drone? Maybe more work but is better than being stationary.

You have a choice, you can either clean up someone else's shit or become a piece of shit. If you choose the latter it won't be long till your sister flushes you out her life.

Being a leech shouldnt even be an option mate
No other options in your area? try and find another warehouse job or if there are any connections you made from your old job you could use.

My father, because oddly enough my father loves me. I am still a misunderstood schizoid nightmare either way. But if he were to pass away I would choose the big sleep. The world is harrowing enough as it is. Terrifying really. I lost much of my life because of other peoples crappy decisions. I don't want to see it from strangers. I know the depths of the rabbit hole. I have seen all I ever want online. I won't suffer homelessness as I am. Though in this place I have very specific white features so that most people and doctors simply don't believe me, no joke, and the mental healthcare system is so screwed up anyway that it is the only protection I have from THEM also. It's just too fucked to explain. The Mental Health system is a weird racial joke here. Viewed as "privlidge" from ghetto as fuck backwards doctors. I'm not brown enough to be "crazy" and therefore WRECKLESSLY medicated by doctors with political aims. Yep in this place to be brown and diagnosed as schizo is "Social Justice". It is too complicated to explain to people who don't live in this particular place. The rest of the problem is murderous police, AND citizens, and a shit political climate. Only my father stands in the way of hell or the road to the big sleep. It would wreck my father's life worse if I died than if I were sorta expensive. I don't want to be the next schizo beaten to death by the cops for NOTHING. To be calling out to my father to help me while they murder me for saying random words or something because the fucking clowns around there think that crazy people's ramblings are "confessions" and "guilt". I have to pretty much avoid brown people at all costs. I'll choose the big sleep if anything ever happens to my father. I will confirm his passing and then make a super special cold brew super special sleepy tea. Then big sleep. For people not in America it is more fucked up than you could possibly imagine.

>The only other thing is I masturbate instead of having a girlfriend. That saves millions a month.

Try hookers, more fun and if you make one a regular and you can normally negotiate a discount if you treat them appropriately (shower).

Is cheaper. CFL 19/08/06(Tue)10:40 No. 3314 ID: e0249e

Same on internet I just use my phone or presently my tablet. I'm with sprint. They have rather acceptable packages on tethering with unlimited internet on phone and tablet. CHEAPER than High-speed. BIG TIME. But reduces the amount of actual internet on PC time because of TETHERING download caps. Etc. Still. Cheaper.

Hmm cheap... CFL 19/08/06(Tue)11:00 No. 3315 ID: e0249e

Also managing the number or amount of crispy and sweet things you eat. It is likely better for money and weightloss goals. I.e Wednesday is soda day. Friday is crispy snack day etc. Tea is also CHEAPER than coffee in BULK FORM. Make it just like coffee with milk and sugar or plain with sugar or even a lemonade tea by adding lemon juice and sugar. It is cheaper and I believe healthier. In someways it may be good for family hanging out. I.e share crispy snack day with husband/wife, mom/dad kids etc. Let's see what else. I use dishsoap for all my laundry. Dawn specifically. It doesn't take as much, gets more oily stuff out, and is cheaper + MORE trustworthy to me. I am paranoid. Saves a few bucks I also clean the bathroom with Dawn, and sodium percarbonate. Works great. Same reason, safe and very good against oil. Sodium percarbonate is NOT cheap but a 1$ can of comet or equivalent IS and is also good to clean with. Ooh I CUT MY KITCHEN SPONGES IN HALF! Save a buck here and there. Use them till they fall apart. Then grab another half. The blue no scoring scrubby ones is what I use. If it matters.

My friend works three hours a week and makes 4000$ selling drugs.
