Broke and Homeless- Day #1
After graduating from a $50,000+/year private liberal arts college (thanks to A LOT of financial aid and generosity from my parents), I am officially a college graduate. Armed with a car and a few thousand dollars in savings, I am embarking on a new adventure. I have no job and no home. I’m living in my car and couch surfing when possible.
I highly doubt anyone but my family will read any of this, but I’m documenting everything in hopes that something will eventually turn into a story I can tell my future children and grandchildren.

Pitzer gave us less than 24 hours to move our stuff and get off campus after graduation. Check out time was noon. My roommate and I checkout out at 11:58am. Success.
With my parents gone, I drove to Pasadena for a friend’s graduation party. There I learned that I am not the only sad, unemployed college students. I felt a little better about life. I ate A LOT of free food.
RealizingI had nothing to do and no where to go, I ended up back in the Pitzer Parking lot because they have great wifi. I watched Netflix for awhile.
Thankfully, my old roommate let me sleep on the couch of her grandmother’s hotel room.
