i was born into a middle-class family.
i am seventeen, and i go to a school that costs 9,000+ dollars per year.
so why am i here?

this summer i am dropping my lifestyle of shopping sprees and reveling in a disposable income to live homeless, dumpster dive, hitch rides, and sleep in cardboard dumpsters.
not because i think it'd be a laugh and a smashing good time, but because i'm tired of being around people who care more about the label in my pants than the thoughts in my head.
i'm here for support, because everyone i confide in is freaking out.
i'm hoping for someone to refrain from warning me of the dangers. i know. i'm hoping for someone to embrace my decision instead of passing off my ambition as a childish fantasy.

i hope that this is the place i can get what i'm hoping for.

I'm with the poster above. Unless you know how to find food in the woods (from state to state or wherever you plan on traveling), how to build a shelter and how to stave off animals, stay in the city. I've worked for the homeless, as well and the romantic hobo lifestyle is anything but.
To quote one of my favourite bands' "if you go in the ocean, you gotta know it's the shark's world".
