Dear Blake,

I quit my job almost three years ago and I have been living in the streets. My friends and family are ashamed of me because I have made it clear to them I have no desire to ever work again. However, lately I have been feeling very empty because I feel I’m missing something, but I can’t figure out what it is. Do you have any idea on what it can possibly be?

Signed, Martin

Dear Martin,

What you need to do is leave Syracuse. Your mindset suggests to me that you should be a hobo, which is basically a bum that travels. The next freight train with a box car that comes to town heading south, jump in it and go to New York City. You’ll easily fit in there. Once you arrive, I would strongly recommend that you regularly beg for money while standing on Wall Street. Many of those investors are so wealthy and snobbish, that they will be glad to give you money, if you promise to stay far enough away from them so they don’t have to smell you. And finally, NYC has some of the finest restaurants in the world, with plenty of dumpsters for you to retrieve your daily meals. I hope this helps.
