It took me years, but I'm finally in the northeast! I've been wanting to head up this way for some years, now. I'm now in Cleveland, and looking to say for a while. If not, I'll travel the northeast until I find my place. At the same time, I want to continue to travel and see things. I'm so excited, and Cleveland is SO CLASSY! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I contacted the person co-running the Couch House in Cleveland OH and after days of communicating I was rejected from the Couch House because of the negative review from the person harassing me on couch surfing. I sent proof that I was the one being harassed and I was still rejected. I was told the other reason was for not knowing when I would be leaving, but that could have been discussed after the major issue of dressing the harassment issue. Reasonably, it would be less than a week.
I don't want to stay in a place run by people that support harassment and mistreatment towards the community. I showed them the messages where I was threatened repeatedly, but apparently, that sort of thing is ok with the Couch House. What is more stunning was that I was told it was a concern for safety measures, but what about my safety is a victim of someone's vindictive nature? The review clearly isn't even written by them, as o be told by how everything else on the page is written including the other reviews. At the same time, we l've in a country where more than 10 rape victims can come out against their rapist and still be called lairs. It's not men and women as much as it is abuser vs victim vs society. The say the Couch House of Cleveland, OH supports systemic oppression because of this event. Please don't use this service. Please don't support systemic oppression.
That last post was a very bad take on the state, but I'll admit I had more bad times than goo ones, and I made it great at the end. Over all, I'd have to rate NM as a bad time for me. I learned from it, so I'm glad I went.
I met great people, though. The staff of the Barrett House shelter, the other people I met from CS.com,the great people at Off Center Community Art Studio, some people from the Albuquerque Peace and Justice Center, and many wonderful people at First Unitarian Church.
