I’ve been homeless for five months now. I have a decent job, so not sleeping rough homeless, but in the lowest sort of SROs while trying to save up that first+last+deposit. Hotel rates and having to eat out all the time due to not having access to a kitchen are impeding said saving.
The place I’m typing this from is so low-end it’s BYOTP. No bedbugs (knock wood) but there’s not even anywhere to hang a towel in the shared bathrooms, which are occasionally a horror movie. No joke, I once saw something prepping inside the toilet for a Stranger Things dimensional violation.
I’ve lived in worse conditions, but not while having a well-paying not-too-stressful job. What the hell is going on? I’m not a drug addict, although I do like my bourbon. My credit is mediocre, so I’m not sure if I can prevail upon my credit union for a nut. Any suggestions aside from “move to BFE and work remotely?”
