Why do it? (1 Viewer)

What's the meaning of [your] life? I don't mean it in the cheesy philosophy sense, but in the immediate personal subjective sense. Why do you prefer traveling, squatting, and/or avoiding rent as an alternative living?

Considering the basic purpose of shelter, it makes no sense to me to work long hours at a job on a regular basis just to have a place to sleep. Land ownsership is incomprehensible to me. If I were to work and pay rent, cognitive dissonance would eat away at me.

Of course, that applies to the "avoiding rent" part. I've yet to do much travelling...

being that I've removed myself from traveling for a while in order to work.. I now realize how deep my love for travel goes.

It eats away at me on the daily having to work and keep up appearances and "fit in" to what small degree I need to in order to maintain a steady job.

I hate having to pay for EVERYTHING. it seems like around here you can't even sit on a blanket and sun yourself at the park without having to pay some asshole a few bucks for the right to do so. I EXPECT things to be free.. living shouldn't cost money.

I also miss the people I meet.

all the things I miss are probably the best reasons why I like living an unfettered life.

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 this 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.
