Since the last post: Crashed with a friend and very dramatic housemates on the other side of the river. That was fuckery.
Moved in with my friends that I've known longer a week later.
I'm setting myself up to be a digital nomad, for my next round of travels. I have the laptop, tablet, smartphone triforce in full effect! I have a cheap USB mic, and I'm considering getting a drawing tablet. I'm focusing on being a freelance content creator and remote jobs where I don't every have to report in person. It's all throwing wet noodles at the wall and seeing what sticks. I'm coming into this with an open mind, a focus, and goals, but no expectations on how to achieve them.
I'm mainly doing this so I can stop depending couchsurfing and shelters while I travel. I would rather be able to pay for a hostel or hotel. Couchsurfing is better in some places than it is others, I'm sure. But, over my time have to deal with the flaky and shaky Midwest community, I'm trying to move on from it as much as I can. It's better to have more options, in any case. And, if I continue to find more CS hosts that I get along with, that's also great! I make a new friend, and get to work and/ or relax and enjoy my travels. If my hosting situation in undesirable or if I don't find a host in the area, I would benefit from having the option to get an emergency hotel or hostel, if I don't find an emergency homeless shelter and there's no place to setup a hammock.
I'm fortune t be able to start this new with plenty of time to think about it and see what does and doesn't work. And, see what I want to do for money or for hobby.
