If you get a new laptop does that mean that you wont eat dinner at the mission anymore? I am serious in my question. I dont understand why you cant keep your personal belongings with you when you eat and I know from reading your blog that they have some pretty silly rules at the mission. What are you gonna do?Christine
I have made arrangements with my case manager, that the laptop would go home with her at night, until I get housing. I should be getting into housing within a month - hopefully sooner.
You might consider an HP/Compaq machine. They usually have some great deals for solid laptops. I'm currently using one that I got new for ~$300 (from Best Buy) and it's served me very well.Good luck with everything.
Kevin,I have been reading your blog for a few years and enjoy it. I even share the same birthday as you. I am going to make a donation to your laptop fund soon, My question though is this. You are building up quite a bit of money, do you wrestle with the idea of using it for a few nights at a hotel or other essential items, or even for a housing fund for yourself? I am just curious.Good luckStevenu
