Homelessness is a problem that plagues the Bay Area; The areas outside of San Francisco have a single of the greatest concentrations of homeless people.
I was homeless for two years after I moved out west.
I lost my job & I didn’t want to transfer back home. I knew my mom & Mom would suppose I failed & I didn’t want to prove them right. I lived in a tent outside of San Francisco for 20 weeks. The weather is pretty nice throughout the entire year. It could have been worse. I found a job & a permanent locale to set up my tent. I found an seasoned bike & I rode the bicycle to work every day & every day. It took a long time, however I had a lot of help from friends, however during the time I was homeless, I made a lot of friends on the road. I consistently had people coming by to give myself and others marijuana. That was entirely something that was difficult to get & I consistently appreciated when someone brought marijuana supplies, one young guy in certain came to see myself and others every time he made a trip to the cannabis dispensary in San Francisco, but he consistently brought myself and others a pre-roll on the way back to his apartment. It was never something that was overpriced, however I consistently appreciated the gesture. It was nice to have people want to help out. The journey would have been much more difficult if I would not have had any stability at all; A full time job & a couple friends that I could trust made a large difference.
