7:00 a.m. I wake up, I take my pills, and I start getting ready to catch up on all the work that I’ve let languish. From this day forward mark my words I’m going to be more diligent with my work on the homeless 366 project. I go through my social media to see what’s going on. Turtleboy is in jail. The trolls are rejoicing. But the Karen Read enthusiasts are stronger than ever. Justice will prevail. I spend my morning in the tent, cold, catching up on work.
11:45 I hike out of the camp, my hands are cold it’s just raw out. I drive my truck over near lifebridge where I go to get my lunch. After lunch I contact my friend Scott in Lowell since I know that there are people that need donations there.
1:15 p.m. I drive out to Lowell from Salem It’s about an hour. I meet my friend Scott at the house he lives at. Just go ahead been in heroin addict in homeless in a previous life. He was able to find community and support in Jesus Christ and now he’s doing amazing things helping homeless people and he is active in the church. I give him a third of the supplies that have been donated so that he can give it out to people that are living outside in tents. I hang out for a while and we discussed an organization called Matthew 25. This is a charitable organization that brings 235 meals to the people in the street almost every night, they also donate supplies. What I don’t understand about Matthew 25 is I’ve been working to connect with this agency for a while, and they continue to ghost me and they never get back to me, and I can’t find who is in charge of the organization. I do some digging while I am with Scott and I find out who runs the organization. I plan on learning more about Matthew 25 and connecting with them while I’m in Lowell.
3:45 p.m. I drive from Lowell to Stop & Shop to get some raviolis, and then I go to the girl’s house to make dinner for her and her son. Her son stays up till 10:00 p.m. He has lots of energy. The girl is tired, so I read her son a bedtime story about butterflies and she puts him to bed and then her and I both go to sleep.
