Why I Choose to Live in my Car

I sat down and very carefully planned out how I was going to write a post explaining why I'm living in my car. Then I wrote 3/4 of it, stopped, said, "What the fuck," and scrapped it.

“How do you feel about gender selection?” he asked.

Photo by Jordan Antonacci"How do you feel about gender selection?" my dad asked my brother as we all gathered around the table eating an early dinner.
