Homeless for a Week ?
Posted 6/25/10
I could easily live without an iPod. I'd go to a homeless shelter if one is available.

Its like camping just without the equipment. i went for a week just fishing and looking for berries, nuts and other edible things.
Granted i did bring my ipod so i could listen to it and just relax while fishing, i caught a turtle one day! (no i did not eat the turtle)


Nah camping is WAYY easier than being homeless in the city. When you're camping you have the environment to support you. When you're in the city you have city stuff like used condoms.

Indeed. which is why all homeless people should migrate to a forest and create their own hidden town that will eventually conquer most of the world.

I was actually "homeless" for two weeks when I was 13.
Three of us lived out of my mothers wickedly small car with our dog and rabbit.
As much as it sucked to not have a bed and proper meals, it was really fun because of the "choice of parking".
Sure as hell beat living with my grandma for two years after that.

I would survive 1 day.
Then I would just go insane for the next 6 days.

I wouldn't go to the streets, I would just find the nearest forest.

I could and have easily survived with nothing out in the forest. It's a lot of fun. Though past a week or so of it I could see it getting rather tedious.

I could say I could do it but that's only my belief as I have not done so. You see, the main problem would be food. I could say, take the leftover food people leave on tables but honestly I would find that rude. The next problem would be, well, shelter or just a place to sleep. Considering some factors of me having only that limited stuff, I would have less of a problem if someone tried to steal from me while I sleep. However, say someone found me drunk because they had enough sense left not to drive so were trying to become sober. Now, who knows what can happen because the person is still drunk. That would cause some paranoia for me anyway.
Now the main question I have to pose is, what would I do with a piece of cardboard? Say I was trying to get money for food, I honestly doubt that it would help me get money or food. I could use it to mislead people into donating money to me, but I'm honestly not that kind of person. I think what I would do is find people who want to draw on it and have me display it down the highway, for small money like a dollar, which can buy me something like a burger from McDonalds.

I don't know if I would make it being homeless for a week. I haven't tested it, so pretty much my thoughts of how well I would do are all theory.

I don't think I would fare so well, maybe survive though.

I could never make it. For one thing is, I'll always be hungry and thirsty. And I need my food and drinks!! Second, I'll die of boredom. No iPod Touch, no cellphone, no videogames, and worst of all, no laptop!! Haha and I wont be able to take showers... and at night I'll freeze to death. During the day if its hot, I'll die from the heat.
