I want to dive head first into the volcano that is my fucked up head. Im on the 2 months work 2 months play life style. I think im addicted to it. Part of me wants to be a contributing, decent member of society, but eventually greed takes control. My desire for freedom consumes me. I can blame the system. Say that this life of materialism and credit cards isnt fulfilling enough for me. View everyone in it as trapped, distracted by money and media. Then go off on my next odyssey. But who am i to say the world you live in is bullshit. Im the one with the problem. I need more simply because i cant love. I cant trust. I cant value a relationship enough to even send a postcard once i've left you in the dust. Im a cold person. Admit-ably fearless when it comes to solo travel. The things i've done in this life, and never even spoke of to good friends. Unfortunately i don't consider that humble. I often feel like a narcissistic a hole thats better off alone. Superior in the sense that i've seen some shit. Any means necessary just to survive. Ive gotten used to a life outside my comfort zone And well its true my desires are beyond material, its foolish of me to think a Thailand adventure will solve these underlying problems. Ahh fuck. This brain of mine. What do you guys think? Am i doomed to a reckless life of adventure. Or should i focus on trying to fill the hole in my heart with dating and friendships. And by the way, im only 21. I don't even have facial hair yet!

Interesting post, it's good to make your acquaintance. However the Making a Living sub forum is for posting and discussing methods to make money where as this thread seems better suited for the Introduction section. I'm going to go ahead and move it there.

Welcome to the site! And hey no worries, I didn't start growing facial hair until I was 25.

Life's enivitable soothing your travelling spirit, just be in it and live it as long as you can, marriage and children will come for you when life deems you needed for that part of your adventure! You're not doomed my friend, you're alive. Sounds like a blast into a broadminded livehood, keep on friend ::drinkingbuddy::

    More Info

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
$40.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 of $50.00
    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
    $40.00 of $75.00
    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
    $40.00 of $100.00
    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
    $40.00 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.

Damn sore riding my bicycle over 60 some miles Sunday! Laid in my tent all day Monday resting! Bike touring at its best. Gotta love it!
Asheville, looking to hang out? Peace
Made it to chicago, had a blast. Got a bike a new bike at the squat i stayed at. So far ive been at the wsp hopout for 12 hours and not a single wbd has shown up.
Yeah remember when I said I'm going off grid for a while? Didn't last long, fucked my back up real bad and apparently I also have an enlarged heart, pretty cool. More love to give maybe? So they admitted me. I'll be on hospital grid for at least a day. Low battery and no charger though, so I'mma leave y'all with a cliffhanger probably. Will try to update before heading back out to the sticks.
100% off-grid for roughly 2 weeks? I'll try to pop in here and there if I get any trips to town. Safe travels y'all. And even if you're just sittin around talkin bout "yeah gonna hit the road in about 6 months maybe" y'all be safe doin that too alright. Armchairs be dangerous yo!
