Its about time they did something about the
lack of affordable housing here. I am from the Bay
Area and in the last year have slept in parks,
relatives, beaches, etc. because I don't want to
waste away in my mom's garage or some over
priced rented room. I am now here again in the
area going to school at community college, and
once again face $900 rooms. Well, looks like I'd
either
a) take out a loan
b) borrow from my relatives
c) live in a van
d) leave the state
luckily I am a female, quiet, non-smoker, as people
renting out rooms are very prejidiced. Why do
we have to live this way? I wonder what to do now.
