All the News That is Good

I’m sure there’s a fair number of you who’ve read my few posts over the last year and have seen my struggle. I’ve been homeless since September of 2019; I’ve been in and out of mental health programs–including in-patient treatment–since October of 2019. It’s been a trying time and there were a number of times when I didn’t think I was going to make it through these times.

But if you’ve worried about my current state of habitation, you have no need to worry any more:

I’ve got an apartment.

Yesterday I confirmed that an apartment I’ve viewed in Columbia, PA, would be mine and now it is. I move in next Wednesday. I don’t have a lot to move–in fact, I have so much to buy it’s not funny. But even if I have no furniture and I have to sleep on the floor and I won’t have internet for a few weeks, I’m off the streets. I’m no longer burning through my cash staying in either a Holiday Inn or an Airbnb: I have a rent payment that’s far lower than all the places I’ve been.

I’m no longer homeless.

I still need a pot and a pan and garbage pails and toilet paper and stuff like that, so if you could help out with a few bucks, please click on the Kofi link and make my day. I really do appreciate the help that comes my way and while I can’t thank you all personally, know you’re in my thoughts.

Which means it’s time for a video!

And if you want to see what the Thetan from the episode Architects of Fear looked like, here’s a photo taken of how it looked in the episode:

There’s actually a guy in the body walking on stilts, which are the legs.

And how it would look as a model:

And here we are!

 

My teammates and me getting ready to leave.

 

And a few pictures from Battle of the Freshies.  I’m in a black jersey with 882 on the back and wearing mermaid tights.

 

Two photos of me and Tiny Tina.  The first is to give you an idea of our sizes and the second is the hit I put on her.

 

This was me running down a jammer in the last segment of the night.

 

And a few photos of me in Jammer Hell.  It wasn’t my happy place.
