I’m a 19 year old field worker who was fired from my job and left by my family in the 1930’s. I’ve been in poverty for over 7 months now, and I’m really starting to get use to this lifestyle. Every week I travel to a new destination hoping for it to be better than the last. Everytime I travel, I look for a boxcar with a good symbol, otherwise I stay away from it. The nice thing about traveling a lot, is that you meet so many new and nice people. Some people teach me new things, like the different symbols. I hope not to live like this for too long, but for now, this is all I truly need.
