This Single Mom is Down on Her Luck and Has to Live in a $1000 Garage with Her Baby Girl.

She laments about her living conditions and admits she feels like a homeless person.

Paying rent sucks, especially if you’re living in Silicon Valley, where the average property rent amounts to almost $4000 a month. This is why single mom Nicole Jones had to leave her apartment and live in a converted garage in suburban San Mateo, where she shells out $1000 a month. Her tiny home has a central space that serves as her living room, bedroom, kitchen and dining room. There’s a stand-up shower and toilet at the back.

The space is very small compared to the standard living space that most Americans go for. “There’s no playing sports or little soccer games down the hallway, because this is it. What you see is what you get,” Nicole reveals in a CNN interview. 

Check out the photos to see how she lives inside her converted home.

Single mom was forced to live in a garage that measures 250-square feet.

Nicole was forced to downgrade her living arrangements when she lost her job during her pregnancy. Now she has an 18-month old daughter and currently pregnant on her second child. She’s employed again but she decides to stay in her tiny quarters because of the constant hike in rental rates. In her interview with CNN, she compares herself to a homeless person.

I don’t know about you, but I think that’s not right. Her home looks pretty neat to me. Small and cramped, yes. But this is definitely better than living in a shelter or sleeping on the streets. Some people should learn how to appreciate what they have and be thankful for it.

What do you think of her tiny home and her living conditions? Do you think her situation is pitiful?

A Veteran Thanked This Officer At The Airport. Only to Find Out a DISGUSTING Secret!

Things started to get more confusing when the soldier was unable to…

Distinguished cross medals, special unit citation, various service ribbons, honorary badges and a man in a military uniform. Who would not be thrilled to pay their respects and honor a soldier who has devoted his life and service for the nation? However, would you still shake his hand and give him a standing ovation once you find out he’s nothing but a fraud?!

As bad as it sounds, a man who seemed to be familiar with veterans and military procedures has busted a fake lieutenant at the Baltimore International Airport as reported by Guardian of Valor! Uh oh! Stolen Valor strikes again!

The mix up all began when a supporter (perhaps a veteran himself) approached an alleged Commissioned Officer in uniform. Things started to get more confusing when the soldier was unable to address at least the basic questions and the stories behind the badges forcing him to present an ID that identifies him as 1st Lieutenant Michael Cipriani....

Faith in humanity restored.

"Physical bravery is an animal instinct; moral bravery is much higher and truer courage."
-Wendell Phillips

Southern Serbia-- a small group of men were standing by the railing of a bridge when they saw a poor pup stranded in a small island beneath them. The helpless pup was trapped amidst running water and had nowhere to go.

A man named Zoran Pavlovic immediately phoned the animal rescue shelters for help, but they were not able to provide assistance and rescue the dog. Instead of just leaving the pup and giving up, Zoran continued to call for help until he was able to reach Mr. Saša Pešić, a local dog rescuer....

"My dad has been unemployed for a while. The cost of things adds up,"

Being the seventh of the eight children, there is nothing much left to do for Liz but to accept the fact that her dream wedding dress would not be dreamy at all - that is until a sudden twist of fate changed the circumstances....
