“Pipppy,” who said she is usually homeless but not right now, stands in a parking lot beside the new drop-in center at 130 W. Sixth St., where the annual census was set up Wednesday to gather information from the area’s
homeless. “These are my ‘road-dogg’ pants,” the 17-year-old teen said. (Bill Husa/Enterprise-Record)

I thought I'd post the local new from the Chico Enterprise Record news paper because it speaks out the homeless, which explains my position. I am certainly staying with my boyfriend but still homeless, which means I have no home and my belongings are in storage. My income went from 2,000 a month to 555 a month. I was evicted from my apartment which was only 450 a month, but workers comp stopped payments and my permanent disability ran out. I apply for welfare, food stamps and it took them 2 months for me to receive it. I've never been in this situation before, but now that I am, I look at life in a whole different way.

Staying positively focused

Even when you are thoroughly committed to staying positively
focused, life can get in the way. Though you may have the
best of intentions, there will be times when you veer off
course as a result of your own actions.

When that happens, don't beat yourself up about it. Just
recognize it, accept it, learn from it, and get moving again
in a positive direction.

Winners and losers will both stumble. The difference is,
winners have learned to quickly get back up.

If you make a mistake, or lose your temper, or allow
yourself to become distracted, it's normal and natural, and
not the end of the world. Though it is painful when you've
disappointed yourself, you have the opportunity to make
something positive out of that pain.

It is indeed a good thing to realize that what you have just
done was not the best choice. For now you can move forward
with a renewed and stronger determination.

When you know you've stumbled, decide to recover quickly.
Soon you'll be moving ahead even faster than before.

Beautiful Upper Bidwell Park is where we use to go up to, to party.

This map is to show you that the park runs through the town of Chico.

Bidwell Mansion is the mansion that the original pioneers settled and claimed Bidwell park and Chico.
