“…I’ve been seriously considering leaving the house – seeing how the hassles of being on the street is sometimes preferable to the hassles of the halfway house. There are hassles in both cases, but on the streets, they are your own hassles, and you can deal with them in your own way – you have more ownership of your life on the streets, than in a halfway house, where you are expected to hand over control of you life to other people, and where other people, so many of whom you don’t know and thus don’t trust, get themselves involved in your life – invited or not.” (>>)
