So I'm homeless starting tomorrow...
I have no money, all I have is my Ipod and Phone which I am hocking to get some money. I'm going to take my guitar with me, but chances are it'll get stolen, so whatever money I can make busking before then I'll keep.
I have no idea why I'm posting in here...
I'm 17 and homeless.
I spent the last hour packing everything I could into my bag after using all my credit only to have people who I thought were my friends tell me they couldn't do anything to help me.
I'm not even bothering this time to put myself into the system, the government doesn't give a ****. Last time they told me it'd take 3 months to get me any money and then asked me to leave.

My brother failed his pharmacy exam and now he's leaving, and my mum can't afford for me to live here anymore. She has ****loads of money but she just doesn't want to spend it.

There aren't an shelters in the area of australia where I am, the ones that do cater for youth have their cutoff age at 16.
I can't get an apartment till the beginning of next year when i can legally sign a contract and i've had managers call security when i've applied for a job and mentioned i am homeless.

Dude, just tell them that you aren't an alchoholic, or drug addict, and you'll be fine. I think.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

No-one has to be "homeless" if they dont want to be. There is govronment shelters that work with social services... My mum's a social worker, and my mate had to go in one so i know all this

EDIT: Unless you're not in the UK.. In that case..
#25
I think you're exaggerating.

If it's so bad, and you're underage, you can have the police make her support you, and they will either arrest her or threaten to do so, if she truly has the money and won't pay for you to live.

You can't leave a 16 year old to rot, that just sounds silly.

haha police actually can do that???

and all the time all i hear is they just rip people out of money and arrest people for stuff which isnt even a crime. :p
#29
well you are not considered a legal adult being 17, so your mother is legally required to let you live with her until you are 18, then you can go get an apartment. Problem solved.

WTF. Dont mention you're homeless then, say that you live with your mum, but youre planning to move out soon!
#32
do you not have any other relatives like grand parents you could contact?
#33
Bull****.

Your mum wouldn't just kick you out for not wanting to spend any of her huge amounts of money

If it is real, then she's a ****ty mother. Cut her brakes. You could be in her will for all you know.
#34
this is a hard time for you and i totally respect you
you need to take out a loan, explian your situation to the people, there has to be some law helping you out
if they have one ounce of humanity in them they'll do everything they have to help you out
also, dont let that guitar out of your hands
sleep with it! im not even freakin kidding
it could help you out
that's pretty much all i have to say
always explain your situation
what do you have to lose
they'll help you out
i hope i helped

This isn't the first time I've been out on the streets, I left my home to get away from my mum's abuse last year, I was homeless for close on 8 weeks, finally one of my friends who I hadn't seen in years found me and i lived with them for 4 months, then moved in with my dad, he kicked me out after 6 months because I tried to kill myself. I was homeless for 8 weeks then my mum took me in and now I'm homeless again.
I spent the entirety of that time trying to find places to live trying to find a job.

I finished packing my stuff to leave tomorrow and now I'm kind of just sitting in bed in shock.

What is she really doing to kick you out? Or are you just leaving?
If's she kicking you out, just kinda... say "no"... just don't leave, and ignore her until she gets of your back. Get a job, buy your own food and stuff, and just continue living there...?
#39
You should try to live with a friend, that's what I did (And still am) when my mom kicked me out.

OMG! Read his next post.

Seriously, this is total BS. I don't believe a word of it. Your own father wouldn't kick you out if you tried to kill yourself
