In school, you had people around you all the time. There was almost no choice but to make some friends. But as an adult, it’s rare. I mean, come on, if I see a guy who looks cool, it’d be nice to have some sort of bromance checklist you could swap. Stuff like main interests, thoughts on a certain subject, goals, those would be cool to know before you ask a dude if he wants to hang out. Oh, don’t get me started about that either… with my 11 hours of being gone during the day, I spend the precious time left with my daughter and wife. Almost no time left for one on one with the guys.
This is why I’m so passionate about making my own income, while traveling. I want to be in control of my finances, not my boss. I am working towards the goal every day. I have to-do lists, monthly goals, and daily goals. Once I make enough on my own, I’ll have more free time to spend with my family, and hopefully new friends.

I have a lot of past friends, but it’s not the same trying the same ole conversation on the phone. “What’s up man? … Not much? What’s new with you? Nothing really, hey, I wanted to ask you ……” blah blah. I want to hang out with them. Anyway, I can’t wait to be traveling full time in our RV. I look forward to making friends during our trip around the USA. I think I’ll barter for things that I want to learn, like I’ll fix your computer for guitar lessons… That sounds like a plan. Also my immediate family needs help financially, and I have to help them. When I say have to, it’s because I know I can, not because they require me to.

Oh, what I meant by not normal, is that I don’t drink, I think drugs should be legal (Personal Freedoms), I don’t take any pharma or over the counter drugs, I take vitamins, I don’t eat crap as a rule, I have a motivation to work for myself, and be location independent, I don’t own a TV, or care about many current events, I am always trying to learn more, I listen to podcasts in the car so that I can be productive and learn while driving, and I spend every non filled minute I have trying to achieve financial freedom, not so I an be rich, but so that I can experience life to the fullest and know that I’m always going to be financially secure. Most people I meet might have a couple of these qualities, but no one I know is on the same life goals that I am right now, and it’s hard to keep self motivated sometimes.
