Homeless in Los Angeles. My story.

Hey friends, I recently posted on r/homeless and a few people asked if I would share my story so I thought I would. This is a long one so thank you in advance for taking the time to read it.

I am currently homeless in Los Angeles, specifically north Hollywood area. I have been on the streets since May of 2019.

Just so this timeline all makes sense I’m going to start back in April of 2019. At the time I was working for Apple as a Genius and had been with the company for 7 years. In January of 2019 I was rear ended coming home from work and my car was totaled. I used the insurance money to buy another used car. In April I had to undergo a minor surgery where they suspected I could have cancer. Thankfully, it was not cancer but I was out of work on medical leave for 3 weeks. My room mate at the time owned his own window washing company but had recently lost his car and license due to unfortunate circumstances. I will call him Tar as he stays in the story. I was working for him part ti

An assortment of tales regarding French MIL and her legion of emotionally-constipated minions.

I want to preface this with two things.

  1. This will be LONG. Long. I warn you. I've needed an arena in which to vent, and I'm SUPER grateful to have found this sub. I hope it's not against the rules to post the whole saga, but please let me know if it is, and I'll split it into parts.
  2. As a self-described empath, I do have some half-shriveled notions of sympathy for this woman. I think everyone has their own reasons for being the way they are. She had a hard life; however, a hard life is no excuse for shitty behaviour!

And so, I present for you an assortment of tales:

Background:

I met my OH at my best friend's wedding in Canada and moved to the UK to be with him and his stepson (SS) who was three at the time. My OH and I come from very different backgrounds: I grew up working class and my parents divorced when I was very young; I also experienced a lot of instability and functional alcoholism. My OH grew up very poor in France with a single Mum (MIL), but when he was

How do I buy perfume?

I'm on HRT and in the closet. I'm doing things to help me feel more feminine in my daily life, like growing my nails and hair as well as wearing feminine underclothes.

I would like to start wearing perfume as well, but I have no clue where to start in selecting one. I'm (mostly) not embarrased about interacting with a sales clerk, because I know they'll asume it's for a female friend, but I still want to make that interaction as short as possible to save myself embarrasment.

I looked up online that there are 4 different 'groups' of perfume, and I know I want something flowery or woody, but when I went to a store to looked at some options, none of the packages say what the scent is. It's all just names, brands, and the strength of the perfume.

I'm going to go to Dillard's at my mall and ask the clerk for help, but I want to do as much research ahead of time. Are their websites that list options and their scents so that I can know what I want to try when I get there, or do I just need

I'm a Collector [Pt. 3]

Part 2

I don't know how many of you will remember, but I've been here before. I am the guy who bought the badge that caused some strange disturbances in his life, for those who can't be bothered to follow the first link. Well, I haven't given up collecting, as a matter of fact, my obsession has only deepened. They say some people never learn, and, I guess, I am one of those people. I've made a few purchases in the last few months.

I moved away from collecting stuff that may have trauma attached to it, so I guess I at least partially learned my lesson. My first purchase after the badge was an antique absinthe fountain, which sparked a newfound interest for myself and my wife. We started collecting antique liquor accessories as well as old bottles of wine and of course absinthe. We have a few new bottles, which we have opened and sipped at, but that is neither here nor there.

The thing I'm coming here to tell

Replacement-only extremely-low buy until 2016

Today is my birthday! It also means I've been back in my home country for a year now, after spending basically my entire adulthood abroad. In that time, I've become so much more focused on consumerism and have obtained more stuff than I could have imagined from my former life where everything I owned fit into three suitcases.

I want to return to a more free lifestyle. I also want to save enough money to travel internationally next year and visit friends. This is desperately important to me.

So, from now until the end of 2015, I'm going on a replacement only almost-no-buy.

Parameters:

  • I may replace makeup/skin care items only if I've exhausted that category. I can only see this potentially happening for bronze & nude eyeliner, concealer, powder, shower gel, and cleanser, and maybe possibly some skin care steps.

  • Related to the above, if I finish a red lipstick or whatever, I cannot buy another but instead keep working through my absurd stash.

  • I can keep my Birchbox and us
