Latest news: Seems I will stay here in TX after all. Got a paying job that'll keep me funded for a while but also need to find a stable place. And so...
I was recently approved for an apartment with a roommate.
But the process was excruciating. It is as if someone in the matrix knew of my van living times and decided to send a message to its minions to punish this errant rebel and teach him a lesson.
I was subjected to the worst runarounds and requirements. None of my old records of being a good tenant mattered. They really zeroed in on the gaps in my rental record.
Fuck! I was overseas, can't they understand that?
Whenever I produced what they wanted, they needed something else.
One apartment complex wanted me to produce the original blue ss card ... you know, the one which they don't want you to keep in your wallet?
Anyway, long story short, I will never do this ever again.
This has been a very bad homecoming and an excruciating 2 weeks.
The matrix knew I had lived and enjoyed life overseas and while here, rent free in my vanhome. Now, it will punish me for getting away with enjoying life without having to pay through the nose for it.
know I am being targeted for being my own man. The system is not
designed with a struggling entrepreneur in mind. From apartment
complexes that demand you show them some kind of employment with a giant
corporation to a tax system which nickle and dimes you for all you're
worth, the matrix is designed to funnel you into a life of full time
employment for some large company. Pursuing a dream has its
costs. I found a way around the costs by living partially overseas. And
the system is punishing me for not living in one city full time all
year round. This is why I was subjected to this rigmarole. Never mind
that I've always been a good renter. The gaps in my renting resume are a
red flag to them. The only overseas people they respect are soldiers
and Doctors. These are the costs of being your own man. This is the cost
of pursuing a different path in life. But hey... they can have their
laugh. They can only keep me down so long. One day, it will be
Fuck this system. Next time, I am getting me my house on wheels and rolling outta here.
