As i was walking to class today a guy sat outside morrison’s was like “Hey! I like your hair cut!”
i was like LOL it is a windswept bowl but i stopped briefly and said “Thankyou!”

And then he asked if i wanted to have coffee with him AWWW

literally the first time i’ve been hit on by a stranger since cancer , confidence boost!

I politely declined and mentioned i had a boyfriend (hopefully didnt sound daft in saying so) and he said “oh we can just be friends?”

he seemed genuine so the whole thing was quite sweet but i dont think i fancy coffee with strangers so oh well :P

“Hey man, take my picture!”
“I can’t do it. It’s too dark.”
“Yeah, we need some light. Let’s go over there.”
“Are you homeless?”
“Yes, I am.”
“How long have you been homeless?”
“15 years. I’ve been in Boston 8 months. Before that I was in Washington, Virginia, New York, Philadelphia, Louisiana, Florida…”
“Why didn’t you stay in Florida? It’s so much warmer.”
“I wanted to see my family. But they don’t want to see me. They don’t understand depression. They treat me like dirt. Homeless people treat me better than my family.”
“And what happened 15 years ago? How did you end up on the streets?”
“I tried to burn myself twice. I had 30 surgeries. I was dead two times, but God brought me back. I don’t know why.”
“And why did you do it?”
“I was depressed. Why you crying?”
“Because you are a beautiful person, and my family is really messed up, and I’ve been very depressed. I think I can understand you.”
“Yes, I am a good person. And when you take people’s pictures, don’t disrespect them.”
“No, man, I won’t. I like people. That’s why I take their pictures.”
“And when you make your portfolio, don’t denigrate people. Let the pictures speak for themselves.”
“I will. Are you safe on the streets?”
“Yes, I am…And now I have $8 to buy me some food.”
“That’s all I have. Next time I see you, I will give you more.”
“No, man. It ain’t all about money. Give me a hug. And next time you see me, give me a hug again. And thanks for taking my picture.”

marinalikesbutts i&#8217;m not sure, i didn&#8217;t actually see what happened- my boyfriend lives at the front of the building and apparently the owner, a woman, pulled the dog off the cat and got covered in blood. he let her in to wash up and i guess she just peaced out and he picked the cat up (dead) and moved it round to my side of the building because he had to go to class.  so i just filled in a form for the council to come remove it&#8230;whole thing sounded horrifying and now I&#8217;ve got a dead cat outside my door :( i knew the cat as well, a skittish stray but he always hung out by the front door.
