More Videos on my Homelessness: Organizing Your Car and Temperature Extremes

I apologize for my lack of writing, and for compensation I hope you'll like these two Youtube videos I made.

A very long time ago some people mentioned they'd be interested in me keeping a diary of my experiences, and while my lifestyle is far too uninterested for that, I can at least offer a basic overview of how I've adapted in various ways, such as how I organize my stuff in my car or keep safe in my climate.

You can also see my current playlist on this subject here.

I'm not sure how far I'll take this series. If there's something you'd like to know, leave a comment and perhaps I'll respond in another video.

VIDEO: Why I'm Voluntarily Homeless

In case you thought my prior article on why I've decided to become homeless is too long, I offer you a video presentation as an alternative.

Close-captioning in provided, which I recommend since the audio fades out at some parts, for some reason. (I was using my smartphone to film.)

I have an idea for at least 2 more videos on this subject, so stay tuned for that. It may take awhile, since I discovered inputting close-captioning is quite tedious! I ventured to do it anyway here since close-captioning is so important to me as a hearing-impaired person, and it's immensely frustrating to go without.

(At the same time, watching myself makes me grimace. Perhaps I should undertake some speaking self-improvement ventures. Watching your own video makes you super-aware of mannerisms you've never noticed before.)

Embarassed Reintroduction

You must consider it great disrespect to you for me to publish a blog post from the blue and swiftly depart without explanation for my absence, and for that I apologize. This blog has certainly fallen into great neglect. The failure on my part is getting too lax with my writing habits; it was not laziness that separated us, but rather that, for a long time, I loosened up on my writing practices which I thought would be wise, but has led to much dissatisfaction. I'd like to take a moment to get you back up to speed and also explain my plans for my blog from here, for 2015.

I stopped writing here primarily because I thought I was "unjustified" from doing so given the magnitude of my financial issues, and that loosening up on the amount of intensive editing I did on my writing would bring more peace to my mind (as, prior, it used to be hard to publish even a Facebook status update without severely scrutinizing its few lines). I was wrong on both counts. Neglecting my writing skills has not only put a coating of rust on my abilities, but has also led to a certain emptiness in my life that good, well-crafted writing used to fill.
