I will recommend you. They're looking for dudes to hire for September.

EDIT: I can try to help you out, dude.

I will go there tomorrow. Thank you.

Edit: He told me he never wanted kids, and feels no obligation as a parent. I do not abuse substances. I used to smoke a little pot, but I never paid for it. I had a friend who would hook me up if I wanted some. I drink occasionally, but never to get wasted. My idea of a crazy weekend was maybe a couple beers and a little gaming, maybe reading, or playing my acoustic guitar. If I have to sell it, it will break my heart.

Well what i would do, apply for a student loan and take some bullshit classes this semester so that you qualify for them, get housing and finish school. sure you might get some debt from taking the loans but there are plenty of people out there that graduate with more than $20,000+ in debt from studen loans!

The fuck dude, really? He has almost graduated, but the courses are not offered until next year. His dad is a selfish asshole.

I really don't know how to help you OP. As the others have said, try contacting some councilors at school, see if they can help out. Call up relatives and friends, I'm sure one of them agrees to letting you stay for at least a day or two. Maybe a church will give you a place to sleep otherwise?
The bolded is a great idea. Some churches have a college outreach group on campuses, see if they can help you out for a few days at least. Otherwise, you can try staying in a hostel.

And not every kid lives up to their potential. Sounds like more the case here. Let's look at what he says...



Says he has no job, and is/was finishing college. Apparently he didn't hold up his end of whatever his dad's offer was. I'm guessing part of the offer was him staying in school, which looks like he didn't do. Plus no job to help with bills, and probably squandering his financial aid money on dumb shit like Steam downloads like his post history suggests.

I'm glad you're not my dad.

If you need a place to store shit, you can use my place.

I'd like to offer you a place to stay, but I'd have to discuss it with my roommates first.

EDIT: I have an exam tomorrow until 530, but I can go to BP with you and personally speak to one of the managers for you and then have you talk to them. Do you have any restaurant experience?

EDIT2: I have some friends who might be looking for housemates, as well.

Try couchsurfing. Maybe you'll meet someone that can help you find a job. Also, maybe they have a spare roomyou could rent after finding a new job.

Living with someone quirky would be a fun experience.

Edit: soultron is offering what I had in mind. Hope his roomates don't mind.

I don't live where you are OP but if I did I would help you somehow. If anyone here on GAF lives near him they should find it in the their hearts to help this kid out. Soultron is already trying to help, good job man.

65$ is one night at a motel at least...

but you should probably save that for food.

there's some good advice here though, just find out what the law says about your dad kicking you out without any real notice.

I think he could sue.

At least over here a week's notice is the minimum to kick somebody out. It doesn't matter if there was no contract, that's the default and he could have a strong case, as long as he held up his side of the offer.

Holy crap, hard to believe some guy would kick his own son out with no place to go.

Hopefully you get back on your feet, this experience can only make you a stronger person.

Hopefully the Internet/GAF can redeem itself and actually generate some collective good. How long does it take to extract money from a paypal account? If some of us threw a dollar or two his way it could really help. I have no idea if this is remotely plausible, just a thought.

My mom kicked me out at the age of 14. It was horrible. But it also made me stronger and I live a good life now.

Where do you live soultron?
I live in Hamilton and I'm pretty sure I go to school with HJ at McMaster. I think he's an engineering major like I am. I seem to remember that from the thread when he broke things off with his GF of 5 years. I offered to take him out for a beer. I think he needs that beer more than ever now.

I feel for him because I've had my father basically disown me too. We're on better terms now, but I'd be an emotional wreck if my dad pulled this shit on me. That's why I feel for HJ. Life's fucking tough enough as it is when you've got a student loan breathing down your neck. The guy's obviously got brains if he's two courses away from graduating with a B.E.

He's gonna do it! Then he's gonna make mad bank and laugh at those who forsook him!

Apparently he did live with his mom before but kicked him out because her boyfriend at the time didn't like him :\

Soultron and HJ are engineering students too?

ERTW!

Not hard to believe. If you have one good parent now a days you're lucky. The truth is that most people that have kids shouldn't really have them.

Hurricane don't give up on school. Just think of how you can rub it in your family's face after you graduate and make something of yourself.

On the other hand, if HJ goes missing, I'm going to have to assume that you killed him.

The biggest turnaround for a thread ever? I was miserably depressed reading HJ's story and then soultron does the right thing and helps him out! I was actually going to mention that someone in HJ's general area should at least help him out and hold on to his things or something...

Great thread.

If your school is not offering the classes you need to graduate in the fall then you can ask the president of the school to void those required classes or get some make-up classes for units. Send the school a letter and see what happens. They should make you wait a semester to get a class and then graduate it's not fair. Best of luck to you.
