Alright, alright. I know this is a long ass shot since it's been nearly two years buuuuut. Anyone on here remember being in Tampa (Ybor City specifically) on February 9-11of 2016?
I was with a friend walking around Ybor in the pm hours and passed by a group (3-5 people) flying a sign. One chick, the rest dudes. They had a pit. All stereotypically "crust punk" looking people, late 20s to 30s. Mainly one dude (who was real big, white, raspy voice) and the chick (also white, average size) were talking to me as I passed by. The girl could tell I was interested in them/was ~punk~ in one way or another. She stopped me after I passed them for the third or so time and asked me where I was from/where I'm going/why I'm there. "Just get up and fucking go while you're young" was the advice she gave me once I said I wanted to travel like them.
At the time I wasn't ready and "hopefully one day" was all I could manage to say back.
At the time I had bright ass green hair on top, shaved sides, way too big for me denim jacket with buttons and patches. I was with a really quiet, thin, tall, light skinned black guy with dreads.
Again, I know it's a long shot but I figured I'd look into it. I wanna tell them that it took me two years but I'm fucking finally going and thank them for giving me the best life advice I've gotten.

i think i met those same kids, was a chick and like 3 dudes. i was partying there on the 13th and 14th. if the chick had a sweet leather jacket its likely cuz i remember suggesting we fight for it and just kissing a bunch after. rolled around on some skateboards but mostly the ground. they slept under a nearby bridge and i slept in an abandoned club. she was reluctant to reveal she was traveling by way of some small blue car.

just wanted to say i remember kickin it with this ppl at the same time frame and had a blast and im glad they inspired you to get in motion.

    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.

    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.

    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.
Bored and organizing travel videos.

Social distancing? Try traveling - whether it is a tramp van, a train or even a bike.

This shit is getting real, under self isolation - no, it's self quarantine now - thanks to some jerk who came to the Plant knowingly sick.
He has judged himself, as for me... my locker has been emptied because I am not putting up with that bullshit.
Looks like I just decided to take an early retirement, so on to greener pastures I go......

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!
