An emotionally questionable woman and her emotionally questionable dog hit the road, living and traveling in a mechanically questionable 1988 Ford Econoline van.
"I'm just an honest man, provide for me and mineI give a check to tax-deductable charity organizations.Two weeks paid vacation won't heal the damage done;I need another one.Still, things could be much worse:natural disasters on the evening news.Yep, things could be much worse;We've still got our health, my paycheck in the mail.I promised to my wife and children I'd never touch another drink as long as I live.But in the end it sounds so soothing to mix a gin and sink into oblivion.This will all blow over in time."-Cold War Kids, We Used to Vacation
While you wait for the dream job, you and Ralgh can live in my treehouse :)
I identify with this post a lot. I was never a pro-dancer (though I’ve danced in community shows, and did the ballroom thing for fun some). For me, yesterday’s muse was not dancing but filmmaking (so I totally get the LA/NYC thing). I left that behind as a career choice option years ago.Don’t forget though, that you will have some advantages after your Van-tour. If anything, RVing often teaches one to be high-level at frugality. That’s a huge advantage sometimes. A part time job can do more than a full time job use to, by the sheer magic of watching spending, and not feeling the need to buy tons of stuff. Its helped me on that front, and I know how it feels to have to stop and recharge the play-money.--As for drinks, I hope to be having my Margaritas on some south Florida beach in the Oyster-Can when this Xmas thing is over with.Keep adventuring, have fun, and know that when being exceptional, spotlights are completely optional.
Oh what fabulous photos! My question to you is; why spend so much time worrying about tomorrow, about things that haven't happened and that you have no control over? Try to live more in the now, and your calling might come to you a lot easier that way. It could be right in front of you, right now. To me, it sounds like you are more focused on the end of your trip, instead of what's going on right now. Try to let go of those fears, the "what if's", and see what happens. Unless you stay on the road forever, you won't have much of an opportunity to do so much heavy thinking, so seize the day my friend, for it will never come around again.
I'll buy you a drink... but you have to wear that cow costume from the last picture and start every sentence with "moo". Seriously, why not just try quiet mediocrity? It works so well for me.
me, me, pick me! I'm having a drink!! and I don't have a job and know I'm destined for something great workwise but have absolutely no idea how to envision it.also, i want to go with you and john on that "moo" date.
