Hey, fingers crossed for you Kagus.

Same for you too, Baal. I know you'll do what's best for your family. I just hope the world treats you kindly enough to get out of there.

It's now 10 PM, I think it's safe to say that the rental dude isn't going to be contacting me today. Also the listing now says "expired".

As for the gal: I feel a little dead inside, but so long as I keep distancing myself from reality it at least doesn't hurt. Which river has the most comfortable water? Denial.

You severely overestimate the amount of drugs I'm on.

Still nothing from rental man. This means I now have zero leads for getting out of this shit-ended relationship.

Also no response back from the gal, so I summarized things and fired off a Very Long Message™. I'll be turning off chat with her tomorrow, and muting as much of her profile as possible so I don't have to look at hurtful things while I'm supposedly getting over this.

Thursday is going to be an interesting day. And all the others.

EDIT: Also tried reaching out to a friend to vent a little bit, but after seven hours I think it's safe to say that I'm not gonna get a reply to "Hey, how are things?"

I sent him a message on Monday asking if he'd picked someone for the spot. He replied on Tuesday, saying that he'd send me a message on Wednesday. Wednesday is now officially at an end, unless he somehow meant "Wednesday a week after next" and just left that infonugget in the space between the letters.

I'm depressed. I'm depressed badly enough that I can't even talk about it to my wife. Also I've been having bloody noses and psychotically awful nightmares every night.

We'll sell everything we haven't already and gather the money, the only way to do it is thought land, it's a roughly seven day bus ride once we are in the border with Colombia. By land it like 300$ each, by air it would be at least double that and pete never got his passport so I think he can't travel by air.

I don't want to sound too nosy, but here is just something to consider.

Brazil has instituted some strong asylkum seeker protection laws back in the 90's in cooperation with ONU, you might be able to seek asylum here if you walk up to the border. There is no requirement beyond the usual "no drug trafficking/ no war crime", you can just enter the country and talk to the first Polícia Federal officer you find. They look like this. Other branches of police and army may point you towards an office.

From Venezuela you can enter either Roraima or Amazonas. I'm all the way across the country, in Rio Grande do Sul, so I might not be of much help. Amazonas is basically empty at that stretch, so go for Roraima. Roraima's shelters are very overcrowded, start moving south as soon as possible. Pará is a little better, but you should probably take a bus down to Tocantins or São Paulo.

You will need to fill this form(thoughtfully in Spanish). You can stay in the country while you wait for a final decision on your request, and a Brazilian lawyer will represent you free of charge. After you get in you should enter in contact with the closest CRAI(Centro de Referência e Acolhida Para Imigrantes). They are very helpful.

When you finish talking to the police and your asylum request made, you will be making an provisional protocol, which outlaws deporting  you to the offending country, a CTPS so that you may work legally, you get all the labor rights a brazilian has, such as overtime pay, paid vacation, mandatory rest weekday, minumum wage and whatnot. Also CPF, a common ID and tax number all brazilians have. Try using the CPF card when people ask you for ID, since no one recognizes the provisional protocol when they first see it. They probably won't even notice you aren't brazilian.

After finishing up on that stuff you get the rights of a Brazilian citizen. You will receive medical treatment at every public hospital and many private hospital's also can treat you and bill the government afterwards, so take your family to the nearest medical facility for vaccinations. There are some essential vaccinations for local diseases and the like which are free for all brazilians.

You should also apply for the "Bolsa Família" program. It gives you a bank card for you to withdraw some money every month. It is a pitiful amount, not even rent, but it should help with not starving.

In general, everything available for a Brazilian is also available for a refugee, save politics. There are some public service programs for employment of refugees, but they are very rare.


After your request is granted you will go again to the federal police and make a CRNM. It makes you a full citizen in everything but name, and doesn't discriminate on how you got it: it shows "residente" no matter how you became one. It looks like this.


Now the bad. Yeah, we got Bolsonaro in. He is very reactionary. A lot of people take his election as encouragement for their xenophobia. You will be disrespected. Bolsonaro, however, isn't going too crazy on the issue and isn't curtailing any refugee rights. Maybe he just wants Brazil to look strong in comparison to the "Communist Disaster" in Venezuela. It matters little, as he probably won't get congressional approval on anything too bad, so you should be okay.

Once again, just something to consider.

Welp, my housemate's car radiator snapped at the top hose.  I don't want to overshare, but it's going to be hard for him to make rent, and he's going to need some more rides to work.  Though we do have a couple of fine bicycles...  If we can't get his working, he can use mine.  Still sucks though.  Got back from his parent's farm super late, so tired, but well fed.  I just can't let his problems distract me from my own search for more stable work.

Also I still really need to call my dad back but mngh it's awkward now

Now you get to be waited on hand and foot by the people you (presumably) looked after when they were sick.
