My advice: Take all available cash and head to casino. Place all cash on black as black always hits the first time. If it turns out you were actually there for the second time, at least you can probably still get a free meal and maybe a drink or two.

I literally don't have but 3$ to my name.. I am completely broke, and I gotta get my ass into a hotel... The shelter does a raffle at 6pm, I don't get off work till 5:30 and to catch the bus at 6? There's no chance I can make it, I called them and they can't make special arrangements.. So that really screws me.. I need a place to stay so I can make sure I can keep my job.. I have to be up by 6:30, and I have no way to make sure I'm up by then if I'm sleeping outside.

It's just the standard advice I hand out when presented with these kinds of tales.

I understand you don't know me, I was advised to come here via a friend from hackthissite to download this program.
I'm just getting to a point where I'm so desperate I'm asking anyone I can think of... The shelter here in boulder does a raffle at 6pm, you pick a ticket, first 100 people get in, first come first serve. I get off work at 5:30 and I can't even catch a bus until 6... I tried calling the shelter but they won't make any special arrangements.. I'm alright with sleeping outside but I need to be up by 6:30 showered and ready, and I can't do that homeless. I'm still waiting on my first check, and hopefully I can get a place with that, (I have a friend who rents properties and he agreed to rent to me without a deposit) but I need some help in the meantime. Maybe you don't trust me, I suppose you have no reason to. But I'm reaching out for an ounce of humanity in order to help me stave off the storm...

I really wish I was making this all up.... I really do.. But the mother of my child doesn't want to have anything to do with our daughter Lily.. and last I heard she got arrested while she was prostituting herself for cocaine... It hurts so much because she used to be a good mother, if she was shit, I could understand.. but she breast fed for 14 months! She taught her well, so attentive and patient. My daughter said please and thank you by 14 months, and knew what it meant! It would be easy to let her go if she was a shitty mother, but I'm having trouble... The drugs turned her into a woman I don't even know anymore... Should I try and get her back to who she was or just give up? I don't know...

OK, I can offer advice having roughed it during travels:

Firstly you should not have let it progress to this point. You left things far too long to degenerate without taking action. Now you're in the shit. It's far harder to keep yourself afloat when your head is below water.

Find a place to sleep. At night you can go inside a public toilet and lock the door. Use the sinks to wash under your arms and your face as you don't want to stink. Another good place is buying a train ticket- it's a good too for travel as you sleep and wake-up in a new city (work?).

See also this guy,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_gardner

Start looking for squatters. Squats aren't junky places like you often see in the movies but many of them are quite nice- maybe slightly political with anarchist leanings. Explain your situation and ask for shelter.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squatting
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvXB8-AGCwE

For food do the freeganism thing. You can go to markets at the weekend and ask for their refuse food- food that's a little past the sell-by date but is otherwise fine. Also the big supermarkets like to put lots of food (still wrapped and mostly fine) in the dumpsters. Lookup dumpster diving for more info. One easy thing is just going into a restaurant (think MacDonalds) and eating people's leftover meals- it's not that bad as you image because people are people just like you and me. Often people actually leave quite a lot of leftovers and you can get a good meal.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dumpster_diving
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeganism

Accept your situation. No one is going to help. You have to seize action. Unfortunate but true. Sadly the scammers have made life tough for genuine people.

... There's lots of ways to live free (I've done it)... Will post more as I remember tips.

You action plan should be:
- Find immediate place to sleep (public toilet, overnight train)
- Dumpster dive, ask small shops/markets for refuse food & seek out free food.
- Get work ASAP
- Search squats to stay at.
- Take control.
- STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM DEGENERATE FUCKUPS. They will only ruin everything and cause you massive hassles.

good luck.

Send that shit to my email, waffers at gmail.. I've done the homeless thing plenty of times before, I just never had a job while I was homeless (it's kinda difficult to maintain when you're spending your time hustling for food/shelter etc..), now I can't afford to lose that. If I do, I don't know how to get back on my feet without it.. Unless I can find someone to help me stay.. If you have any information specific to the longmont/boulder colorado area, it'd be very helpful.

If you was in the UK I would try to put you up... help you out Sad Sadly it's not possible cos you're in the USA.

If someone agrees to let you stay then take that as a blessing and work your ass off to get up and running ASAP! Don't be a bummy leecher until they kick you out/get pissed @ you!

and stay away from that ex! she sounds like a massive failure.

The guy I'm staying with is moving back to Cali, he's actually one of the guys who the mother of my child cheated on me for... she said she was gonna leave me for this guy... I think he feels guilty or something... she got back together with me then ended up leaving me for another woman, then she started doing cocaine ecstasy acid etc with this woman... then this chick left her and she headed up to denver to do the prostitution thing... I wish I had a normal life man...

You're begging for money on a bitcoin forum...  but you don't post a bitcoin address for donations?  Strange.

I'm not that vain, if anyone wants to help they'll talk to me and ask for it... if not I'm not just gonna hold out a jar like a hobo, but I guess I should start acting like what I am....

I really don't like just putting this out here man.. I don't even like asking for money, but I'm down to 10 hours and I called in sick for tomorrow just so I can get my shit out of here and find somewhere to camp or something, hopefully I can get together some money for a hotel.. if not I'm gonna try and find a tent.. Last time I was homeless it was in california.. Santa Cruz Exactly.. and it's 70 degress everyday of the year! Here it's -5-50F everyday... and thank god it hasn't snowed yet, but I'm sure it'll snow tomorrow, the first day I'm homeless Sad

start contacting environmentalists and communist/anarchist websites. ask for helping hand. do not ask for money but say you need help or work.

better in those places than this libertarian haven.

start giving people proof. many people here are skeptical. you need to convince them. photos, anything...

also how can people help you?
- work? (what are your skills)
- shelter? (how long?)
- money? (how much/how to pay you?)

Go to http://www.couchsurfing.org/ , start posting in the North America group like crazy,
http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=277

Asking for money off the bat is a BAD IDEA. Ask for help in other ways. If people want to donate then they'll find ways to ask you. Hearing a call for money is an instant turn-off for most.

Really 7 months was a long time to leave this until it got desperate.

Fuck the hotel. You will need that money. Go find a public toilet and lock the doors. Go to the newspaper bank and grab lots of cardboard/paper to put in bunches under your clothes to keep you warm.

Another option is to climb some roofs if your city is a dense urban area. Find a warm enclave.

Put your shit in lockers. You don't want to get mugged. Stay off the drink.

You don't need a tent if you're in the city.

Really 7 months was a long time to leave this until it got desperate.
I have a job, I'm doing telemarketing for "Reliable Printing" We do cold-calling to businesses and get printer numbers so our sales assoc. can use our warm call to sell printer cartridges. It's a shitty job, but it was guaranteed since they have a 80%+ turnover rate..

7 months? No, I've been dealing with this off and on for 7 months..  but it was me and the mother of my child working hand in hand.. but when she left me I had to move in with the guy she was cheating on me with, I've had stable housing for.. 3 weeks now.. I got a job within the first week here, but it's a two-week pay period..

Look up Alexandra Stiebing on myspace... Those are pictures of me, my ex, and my daughter...

God man, why'd you ask me to get those.. I'm fucking crying... She used to be such a good mother, and that WAS my family... Now it's just shattered pieces..
