For the past while i've been stretching my money as far as it can possibly go. Over that time the food has been single dish "meals" a day whether it be a can of beans, a mac and cheese, or a can of fish with water. However, this isn't even half the hardship many of you deal with frequently as people around here have gone homeless, lived off ramen for months, and been forced to make very tough decisions in the name of "getting by".
What have you had to do in your life to adapt, and why did it come to that? Olive Garden is applicable.
They were terrible.
I was like, "Why would you do this? Why would you do this to beans?"
My biggest tip is to move very efficiently. I mean that wholeheartedly, from one broke brotha to anotha
That's the way to go.
But things went uphill from there I guess.
This is very familiar.
The "move efficiently" comment is so true though.
but i'm an asshole so i don't
what did you do to get a $94 ticket on a bike? were you running over homeless people?
Life has been pretty good to me, concerning the comforts of home.
let's go spend gratuitous amounts of money on wanton luxury
edit: also brown rice, I hate it so but eh it's food
for riding with my headphones on. I didn't know this was illegal while riding a bike. I was listening to a This American Life about PTSD, so I didn't rage at all. Just kinda said fuck it. If I don't find someone to borrow the money from, I might just let my license get suspended for a little while.
But seriously, fuck that. I have to ride a god damned bike miles to get downtown to look for a place for a job. You know how I put up with the Florida heat, the dick drivers, and the poorness I'm trying to get through? by letting some nice sounds in my ear while I ride to muffle out the shitty cars being too loud and burning too much gas
Where do you live? I might be able to ask a guy if they know of any friendly potlucks/charities like Food Not Bombs
if you have a toaster, you'll be all right, just ditch that can of fish and water carry on, or put the fish on some toast
then you've got a meal
wow i didn't know that was illegal either. and they're gonna suspend your license if you don't pay it? that's fucked up.
Californication has like four sets of titties in it every episode.
don't toast stuff. could burn off nutrients and extra scraps of food.
seriously, ever bit counts. My sister does clinic work for her doctorate with eating disorder girls. Those girls do a lot of little shit to burn off every single calorie. My sister has to watch for all this different stuff. I pretty much do the opposite of what she says they do.
Don't do the rabbit's foot twitch when you sit down, for one.
Don't chew gum. It curbs your appetite, which could help, but it burns a lot of calories so it isn't worth it
if you start getting scurvy i'll by you some oranges or something
you just reminded me that I was trying to stop doing it last year but completely forgot, guess I'll start again
but, not necessarily every day of the week
I'm too tired to think my posts through this morning, I'm just going for it
I actually get bored of food, because there is only so much you can do with our limited menu and eating the same stuff over and over again just gets annoying.
it annoys others
