if you are homeless i probably can't comprehend how much it sucks balls but i see you every single day standing there, no sign, no schtick, collecting, and it occurs to me-
you seem to have a work ethic dude.
If 90% of success is showing up you seem better at what you do than a lot of people who can barely make attendance at their cube jobs.

Don't know your backstory but if you are living in the bushes up there or under the overpass i hope it's a better day to day than whatever you walked away from.
