[quote:b3aa29bc92="KaBar"]I don't understand this obsession with the word "homeless." Wherever you are, that's "home." Just deal with it. If you're living under some bridge for a few days, treat it like home. If you build a hooch somewhere, that's [i:b3aa29bc92]definately [/i:b3aa29bc92]a home.
The word "homelessness" implies that somebody is a helpless loser who can't even provide shelter and food for himself and requires that the rest of society "help" him. I just can't relate to that. I never asked anybody for anything, I just made my own way in the world. Sometimes I had a pretty decent job, sometimes I had to wash dishes in some crappy restaurant to get by, or dumpster dive, but I never felt like I was some poor pathetic "homeless person" that everybody needed to take pity on.
I [i:b3aa29bc92]chose[/i:b3aa29bc92] the life I led.
Sometimes it was great, sometimes it sucked, but it wasn't because I was helpless. It was because I made a few bad decisions. Even the bad decisions taught me something.
