So I went through my normal routine on my lunch hour; grab some food nearby and browse the web for an hour. On Engadget, I randomly came across an article about backpacks for travel:
It’s fun when things like that happen. Also, as I sat here, I thought about my daily routines and how they would be changing very soon. I don’t want to keep a lot of things from the house, as the point is to sever myself from my known way of life. Lots to think about there.
I have also been ruminating about what I typed on the welcome page. The New American Dream. The old one is fast turning into a nightmare. High prices, astronomical (for us) gasoline costs, etc. Getting a house in the suburbs, having two cars, all of that is starting to sour. I consider myself successful in daily life but what do I have to show for it? A 15 mile commute, bills to eternity, and a dwindling interest in continuing the same routine over and over.
I do not want to be one of those, “I shoulda..” folks when I get older. I want to live and experience the world. I have plenty of time to pay bills later.
