Earlier today while perusing a Reddit forum about homelessness, I read a piece of advice that, if one is a vagrant, one should assume that only what that vagrant carries on its person belongs to that vagrant. While I do have some personal belongings stowed away in “my” room at my dad’s house (namely two backup laptops, one backup backpack, and various sentimental objects) and in my mom’s car (namely an extra backpack, a tent, steel-toed work shoes, and some tacky interview clothes) which I left parked in my mom’s driveway with the intent to never drive it again, I would say that, practically speaking, I have all of my personal belongings in the backpack I wear daily (namely my birth certificate, my laptop computer and charger, my phone and charger, clothing, sleeping bag, dental hygiene supplies, and other accessories).
At the time of this writing, I am back in Dublin/Pleasanton at approximately 10PM. The sky is clear with a 70% full moon and stars. The air temperature feels like it is approximately 60 degrees Fahrenheit and there is a slight breeze. I decided to default to camping in Dublin/Pleasanton instead of Castro Valley most nights for the next few weeks (at least until I settle into a stable job routine and have the means to get to work efficiently and on time). One of the first items I intend to purchase with my paycheck is a bicyle. That would help me be able to commute between Castro Valley (Dublin/Pleasanton, et cetera) and wherever I work immensely. I like not having to worry about purchasing gasoline, worrying about a car having issues which require the car be taken into a shop for expensive and time consuming repairs, and other inconveniences which come from driving a car and being responsible for its upkeep. A bicycle is order of magnitude cheaper and is lower maintenance and emits zero pollution.
