Crowds in faces…..

Going to New York is always an interesting experience and for me, going to the 140 Conference gave me a lot of memories and some things to think about that never occurred to me until I listened to folks from all over the world talk about how they use social media. Even more surprising were the …

A little too real

June 11th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (0 Comments)

Two days ago I submitted my story to a single mother’s group online because they had advertised that they were looking for real stories from single mothers. I of course submitted the following: “I am still a mother I’m not that kind of person you often hear about. I’m neither an addict nor a mental …

Getting by….

June 4th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness | Uncategorized - (1 Comments)

I recently read an article about getting by on $200.00 a month in food stamps. The author of the article is not homeless and not on any kind of state assistance so for her, this was a “challenging” experiment. For the thousands of homeless families and individuals who know what it is to live on …

Counting my blessings

May 27th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (2 Comments)

“A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.” Oscar Wilde   You may think that homeless folks have nothing to be thankful for but that assumption is as incorrect as believing all homeless people are the same. Recently I posted on my Facebook page an article I found …

Today I have the mini-van back! I almost broke down in tears when I saw it but managed to keep it together as they say! One thing the mechanic noticed in addition to the transmission was that the rear shocks were really bad which explains why it would rock back and forth whenever I drove …

You know it’s funny….

March 24th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (2 Comments)

You know it’s funny to see the expressions on other people’s faces when you tell them you’re homeless, especially when you run across old classmates or friends of family that didn’t know as much as they thought they did. Relax, I tell them. You were expecting to see someone who didn’t look like I do …

Mini van update

March 21st, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (4 Comments)

So far $690.00 has been donated to help get my transmission fixed. A big thanks to everyone who gave! To be honest, I just wasn’t sure anyone would; guess you all showed me! Right now the van is just sitting in a gravel parking lot where it won’t be bothered by anybody. The deadline I have …

Although homelessness isn’t a glamorous place to be, sometimes things happen that are downright funny, like the time this couple living out of their conversion van left a Wal-Mart parking lot in a hurry and forgot that the clothes line on the roof of their van still had all their laundry on it and as …

Possible opportunities

March 15th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (12 Comments)

Ever since that piece in the Huffington Post ran about me, I’ve been getting quite a few emails from sympathetic folks, even some donations for the mini van and I am eternally grateful to you all. In the meantime, I still have to find a way to make a living for the long-term. There is …
