Paul Jardine at least had the decency to give me notice on the transfer, which was not the case in any of my previous transfers, which I learned the day of and occurred late at night. As of Monday, I will be transferred to the Bowery shelter at 4551 Avenue D in Manhattan. I have heard horrible things about it, including that they don’t give us bag lunches. With my public assistance and food stamps lapsed as a result of the false information from Angelica Jiménez and Natalya Castro, this could prove a problem in the early weeks of the position when I have not been paid.
Unfortunately, I was told yesterday that the position was mine and that I would not need to interview for it. That information was corrected today, and I will need to interview for the position tomorrow. I did not see the e-mail until I told Paul Jardine via e-mail that the position was mine, and as such, I need to remain in a working shelter.

I have twice contacted customer service with regard to a USB adaptor to connect my Safelink phone with discontinued service so that I can continue using the camera. Both Reese on July 24 and Valarie on July 21 have chosen to answer very different questions from what I asked, suggesting that they are either robots picking up keywords or are lacking in basic reading comprehension skills. Please scrutinize the ability of these people to do their job. They are wasting my time, since I have to resubmit my request every time they fail to answer the question that was actually asked.

While you shy away from life,
into our world, evil twists the knife.

People love to assume that they can’t become homeless because they’re not addicts or mentally ill, but that’s an opinion, too, an opinion that has no basis in the facts of my case.

~ All this week I’ve been discussing opinions and suggesting that more often than not what you believe to be a fact, is actually nothing more than an opinion. Is it a fact that I’m more handsome in person? Well, that may be my opinion but for the people who have actually been blessed with my presence, they might beg to differ.
Consider the following ‘facts’ we were taught as children, none of which can be proven beyond-the-shadow of a doubt,
—-) Our bodies need 8 glasses of water every day
