Yup. I smoked pot in highschool and now I live in a van down by the river, subsisting off Government Cheese. Not complaining though, I have it good for a homeless guy. I have a 100W solar panel and battery and a mobile hotspot, so I work from my computer in the van all day.
I do microtasks on MTurk and Prolific, transcription on Rev, and various unskilled gigs to make ends meet.
Things have been super tight because I had to pay my car insurance last week and I’ve been on that one meal a day life. But tomorrow, I’m takin my girl out for Thai food!
All because I reckoned this here soil was moist enough to plow 🚜
No I don’t live in a third world country, I’m not a single mother, and I’m not looking for handouts. I don’t need your pity moons when one dick joke in the daily discussion thread is 100 karma (sad but true).
This community had a huge positive impact on my life and I just want to say, thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
Shoutout to my boi Satoshi and the forward thinking Reddit Admins for making all this possible.
