Writers block and other stuff

I keep meaning to write a lot more often, but its been difficult for me. Mainly because my life since I stopped being homeless has been kinda like on auto pilot. Haven’t really cared much to write anything.

As I write I’m in Camden at the bus terminal waiting for my bus back home. I hate it here, its like a war zone sometimes in Camden. I’m sitting here with my music blaring in my earphones hoping no one will bother me.

I’ve been asked to guest blog for another site, it seems rather fitting that the topic is bipolar and relationships. I’m still trying to think of a specific topic… Suggestions?

Spontaneous can be fun…

Ever since I got to where I’m living now I’ve been down and lonely. Nothing much to do here and I know no one here. My idea of fun here was to take the bus to Atlantic City and waste $20 in a slot machine, hey the bus runs 24/7 and picks up a block from the hotel I’m staying at usually I’m only there for 30 minutes and go back. I’ve always wanted to go to New York but didn’t because of other people. On the way to AC I decided…. Screw it, I’m going to New York…

Since you’ve been gone…

Ive been gone for quite awhile and im sorry… My former employer decided to lie to NJ unemployment and tell them I was in the hospital while I was collecting unemployment. It took me almost 8 weeks to clear it all up and while this was going on of course I wasnt getting my benefits. I couldnt pay my rent and was homeless effective April 1st. I bounced from place to place and even spent some time on the streets of Philly during this time and was basically disconnected from the world. Fortunately for me I finally fixed the whole mess and was paid for more of the missed weeks. Dont worry about me anymore, I now have a roof over my head and food in my belly.

While I was going through my manicmedic email today I found this:
