i’ve never really felt comfortable staying in the same place for too long but never had the funds to get very far. i remember traveling to some areas of the west coast of the u.s. as a kid but not enough to learn from the experience and i’ve spent a good portion of my life house hopping but hardly ever outside of the same 25-30 mile radius. i’m 21, a licensed esthetician and studying to become an LMT. i got into the field wanting to offer spa therapy to people in recovery from addiction or psychiatric hospitalization but finding that most of the industry doesn’t take anyone who has graduated within the last two years very seriously without a pre-existing clientele regardless of how resourceful and knowledgeable you may be. to my knowledge there aren’t too many ways to travel in south florida except the railways so i spend a lot of free time walking the tracks or taking passenger trains anywhere from west palm beach to miami but i know better than to try my hand at something like trainhopping without any background knowledge or experience. just looking to learn about other methods of travel to try for myself and meet more like minded people, maybe learn how to monetize what i do out on the road or see what else might be out there.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I swear this guy is my role model right now. If anyone's gonna ride this out with style, it's him.

This guy with a website called "Rustic Cyberpunk", does computer stuff while living in a cabin in the woods.

You'll need a Tor browser to view his blog, though. I won't link it here because it's not a regular link, and I'm not sure if that's okay on here.

When Democrat and Republican politicians argue and fuck up so badly we end up taking 1st place in Plague Inc irl:

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!
