Know that anything is possible.
Things can change in an instance.
See and speak your desires and then release it.

Maybe if we all just picture you warm, comfortable and happy, that would help.
I am not going to think of you in hardship.


I can actually feel the irritation of many reading the words above - and yet, they are (literally) the gospel truth.


Perhaps you've read a little book called "The Game of Life", by Florence Scovel Shinn (available online, free of charge)?
It has its fluffy, cloying moments, not everyone likes its style - but it HAS worked for many people in the past 60 years or so.

If there was a way you could get to Arizona, I would take that route.
It is nice here in the winter and does not snow. There are jobs here, maybe not the highest paying, but they are here. There used to be an organization called fish that would help with gas and or transportation. Look it up, and see if they still exist. I used them Many many years ago, when getting out of an abusive relationship. They even paid my first months rent.

I have been where you are , and I wish you the best. We are always one paycheck away from being in the same boat, as a lot of Americans are I believe.
Couple hints: Look into some of the church groups. Mormon churches will help homeless into a home. They do that in this state. Some Jewish community centers offer nightly meals, and food to take home.

I really did lose the point in your post. Something along the line of honnies connected to homelessness and in your case heartlessness. Well, honnies, unless truly immature, really appreciate the hearts in people, so....increasing your humanity could.....It takes honey to get a honnie. You get my drift. Your argument seemed self absorbed.

I'm surprised to hear people who think that just because someone does not have a job means they are bums/druggies.
You people watch too much TV.
It can be very hard to get a job some places.
Where I live, no one is EVER hiring, and you literally have to know someone who knows someone that will hook you up with a job.
Just know that not everything is as it seems.
Good luck to you Amaterasu, I'm sure everything will be fine.

I appreciate all the offers of information (I accept!) and money (I appreciate it but decline).

It is because I have faith in both myself and my fiance (whom seven years ago, when I was making beaucoup bucks, was promised by me that I would support his efforts as an inventor - but who has been out there with me looking for work) that I decline money.

Job offers on the other hand... [grin] [wink]

Actually, I know my faith in my fiance will show cause, and show it soon. It is just unfortunate that nine days before we know about the final decision we are on the street.

Again, while I love all you who offer prayers, ideas, information and even money, I was only letting you all know why I might not be seen or answer U2U's.

(Speaking of which... My U2U flag remains lit on my screen - yet I am finding no new U2U's in my in box... Odd, that.)

please dont take this the wrong way because i do feel for you and the predicament your in but whatever you do, do not rely on your fiance's invention as your golden goose. Obviously its something to get excited about but try not to pin your hopes to much on it. From reading this thread it appears you seem to be waiting for that $2500 to come through and it seems its by no means guarenteed. good luck to you anyway, i hope everything works out.

I am a graphic designer/video editor/Flash designer-animator/writer who was laid off

Do you have a degree?


Sadly, I am entirely self-taught. I have been doing graphics for close to 20 years... But no degree.

I agree. And in case people need a reminder... this economy is on the downturn and will get worse before it gets better. MANY people are losing jobs and homes... that doesn't make them bad people. They are victims of the selfish greedy politicians and bankers who got us into this mess.

I am in upstate NY and will be willing to help in whatever little way I can. I can't really take you in, as I have a family in my house barely making ends meet right now, and you are a stranger. But I will be willing to pick you up wherever you are, get you a meal or two and get you to a bigger city, if you'd like.

I don't post here often and have really been a lurker of the forums for years, but I'm trustworthy. I know times are going to be tough and that it's time for people to start stepping up for humanity and helping each other out. I want to start making those steps.

I understand you are near the Finger Lakes, but if you wait until I'm off work next Friday and Saturday, I can make it that way. I live at the foot of the Catskills, so it's too far out of my way to drive after work, and I am currently about to get promoted, so taking time off will only hurt that chance ... HR interview this week.

I have studied graphic design and computer animation but found work elsewhere because I didn't want to be a starving artist. Get back if you're interested in at least a bit of help.


Wow. Thank you so much, but we are getting a ride into Ithaca, and my fiance has friends there. I appreciate your offer so much, though.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

You should check out this site: www.guru.com...

I was doing some web design a few years ago and used that site to get clients. You can only bid for the best jobs if you pay to be a member, but that keeps the riff-raff out. I think the quarterly membership rate was about $75 or so.

It's a way that you can work online from wherever you are and work your own hours. And if you've been doing graphics for 20 years... you shouldn't have a problem finding work there (although there is this current economic situation but not all companies are affected by it).

Good luck!

Believe me, we are planning for the worst. As best we can. I'm just saying.

And the fact is that his idea (which I will not discuss over the net) has been greeted with astonishing enthusiasm from everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, who has heard it. People say they would buy it, by one for their friends, want one now!

So I do think it is going to succeed. (I mean it's one of 13 remaining, and there is a good chance they might want all 13...) But still, we will be going into town, hope we find friends there, look for work, do what we have to do.

And if it does not go through, we still have each other, and any job we might land.

If it DOES go through... Well, it will be glorious.

Well, if you run out of luck there and need to move on, U2U me, and I'll do whatever I can. I have a few connections in my neck of the woods.

Sadly, I lost all credit cards (and credit!) when I had to default on payments right around the time I was evicted (kept believing I would get a job any moment now (then)). So I am very limited.

And I don't even have much more than $3 to my name at this point.

But again, I appreciate the information.

Thank you.

I emailed you... [smile]

I wouldn't want to live in Florida year 'round, but it does sound nice this time of year.

Hi Amaterasu, my name is Michael & I've been homeless before in Los Angeles, Ca. & Anchorage, Ak..Although you weren't necessarily soliciting advise, the best that's come through so far is migrating to a more populated area. Get a deck of tarot cards and do 'gesalt' (for counciling, not for divination) type readings for DONATIONS near bars or liquor stores. This'll in turn present the opportunity for you to make others aware of your situation who may be able to assist. I can offer my personal e-mail via U2U if you like...p.s., use your sharpest instincts when deciding whether or not to reveal your vulnerability.

Well, I have an early day ahead and should be off to bed.

I apologize if I do not respond to any more in this thread for a while, and I suspect people are U2Uing me, as the flag at the top of the page is lit, but I find no new messages when I check (over and over!).

So if I don't answer your U2U I may not have received it.

Good night all, and thank you so much for your well wishes, kind thoughts, and thoughtful offers.

Bon soir, tout le monde!

yep, tis definitely a seasonal sorta place.
by then perhaps you will have been able to arrange gainful employment in your location of choice or the invention may have come to a satisfactory resolution... or you may just fall in love with florida. i know i did.
hurricanes and all. there are flowers blooming every month of the year. i love flowers. lol i love going out in my backyard in the dead of winter and picking freshly grown, ripe tangerines, peeling them on the spot and eating them.

anyway, i emailed you back

if you're able to post on here, and spend doubtless hours online, then i'm sure you can find a job doing data entry, entry level clerical or filing work. you have no sympathy from me. you're just waiting for someone to give you what you think you deserve.

educate yourself. then you will have no limits. but then again, its just easier to complain and play the victim, isn't it?
