2-25-2024 Day 145, Sunday, Cause and Effect

7:30 a.m. I woke up in my girlfriend’s bed. Her and I both get up and spend some time together. I ate a small blueberry brown cow yogurt. Love the brown cow yogurt. I got dressed and I got ready to head out for the day.

8:45 a.m. I drove to Danvers to stop at my friend’s house and hang out for a while. He lets me hang out there even when he’s not around. My mom calls me around 10:00 a.m., She wants to know when I’m coming by. I told her I’ll be there within the hour.

10:45 a.m. I arrived at my mother’s house, and I spent time with my mom, the dog Charlie, and the cat Weezy. My mom has me help her build a new TV stand. And I pick up the old one and put it in the trash. She also cooks me lunch, which she usually does, and makes me ice coffee. I took the dog for a walk. I should start videoing our walks, Charlie really loves it in the woods.

If anybody’s ever wondering why I record my weekly routine, in my mind it’s important, and I cherish my family and friendships more than anything. Many people have stated the obvious of me being homeless willfully. Besides now, the only time I’ve ever been homeless was when I was 14 years old. I was kicked out of my mom’s and my stepmother’s house, and I lived with friends sporadically, and one friend for almost a year. When I was young I was unhappy with my family life. I’m not going to go into detail, but there were various unhealthy conditions that had caused me to be destitute at a young age. When I was a kid I learned how to develop strong relationships with my peers. Through these friendships I was able to develop my own identity, I did not identify with my family. I’m confident that the relationships I’ve developed over a lifetime not only with peers, but now with my family has given me the insulation needed for a life of support. I doubt I would ever become destitute or homeless, I feel there would always be somebody to help me get back on my feet. But if I were to become homeless I would know what to do if I had to rely on my own means. I think it’s important to highlight both methods of survival, the communal method of survival, as well as the individual method of survival. Survival and sustainability are the foundations of growth. When people are stuck in a cycle of severe addiction their life hinges on maintaining the simple baseline of survival, all other physical and psychological energies are expended on maintaining the addiction. This seems to be the effect I see of those living in the street. 

3:00 p.m. I drove back to my friend’s apartment in Danvers. I spend some time there writing vlogs and charging my phones.

6:45 p.m. I drove back to my campsite. I love that I have off-road parking, right next to my tent. I walked in the dark to my tent and settled in for the night for a good sleep outside.
