How goes it, new to this site, but I've been traveling a year so far. I never felt like I fit in anywhere, but when I got on the road, I felt like I could breathe for the first time. Met a lot of good people, discovered awesome swimming holes, and many talented musicians. I've recently come back to babylon after getting preggers (go me), I'm doing an adoption because I'm not ready to MOM, and found a great family, but having a hard time adjusting. My pit heeler mix is, too. Her name is Noodle. I can't wait until the day I grab my pack and ukulele and we walk out of here... Used to have a 60s Gilb, but had to trade it in for something smaller to tame my Noodle dawg (she pulls a lot, I think she has a choke fetish, but I don't kinkshame her) I love music and miss exploring, I'd rather spend my time in the woods, hopefully by water, jamming and good times with my homies. I'm pretty crafty and artistic, and I keep my mtg deck and a book or two on me. Thank for making me feel welcome, it's good to meet all of you!

Give yourself more time than you think you'll need to work through the post-adoption stuff. My ex went back on the road with me just a month after giving up our baby, and it turned out she was far more emotionally damaged over it than she thought. We also had an arrangement to get pictures for a few years, which I think helped a lot.

Welcome to STP!
Also, if that's your actual address in your current location, I'd take out the address bit and just leave the city.

Hey, thank you! And I like the pictures idea, I'm doing an open adoption, and the agency uses a website the adoptive parents can post pictures and updates for me to see. I was also hoping to get back on the road in about a month, maybe I should not rush things... I'm sorry you went through that but I really appreciate your insight, I'm going to give myself some more time afterwards to get back to homeostasis. Thank you for the welcome!

Also, that's not my real address, haha.
But good looking out :)

Your intro was super personable, welcome to stp c:
Were u referring to Babylon on Long Island? Sorry u and your pup are stuck in place for the time being
Thank you, I tried to paint a good picture haha. And not Long Island, just back to society in general. Having to make doctor appointments and behave a certain way, and fit in when I clearly don't. I'm not good at playing this game. I don't want to jump through hoops, but kind of have to just to keep up with all my doc appts. My dog is the only thing keeping me sane right now. It looks like we have to leave where we are staying, so I'm currently trying to get a van so I can at least be mobile, and have adventures while I host this cute little parasite. Thanks for reaching out! :)

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.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
