Work? Office? Pssshhhhhh!

I’m ready to let go of this office life and get moving in my life. I’m ready to be happy and get my life together and LIVE.

I’ve been stuck in this office for TOO long, 8, sometimes 9, hours a day, attending pointless meetings, and refreshing Perez Hilton more times than I can count. It’s time that I make this happen for myself.

I’ve been suffering from depression for the past few months now. It’s that weird after college transition. Some people might even call it a “Quarterlife crisis”. I call it the “now what”? I’ve gone to high school, graduated, went to college, graduated. Got a really good job in the field I THOUGHT I wanted to be in. Now I realize that this isn’t the life for me. I’m 24, and I deserve to do what I want to do and not be trapped. Now what?

I thought I wanted to be a talent agent, hobnobbing with the stars and walking red carpets, having actors thank ME at the Oscars. Slowly but surely I realized this is the LAST possible thing I want to do. Actors are terrible people (sorry actors who read this), agents are bitchy, and it requires being stuck in an office under florescent lights and no windows for over 8 hours a day. No. Ma’am.

I researched and poured over blogs for hours on end. I found a group of people who like to call themselves “Location Independent”. This group of people have their own business and are able to generate income without being tied down to a desk at an office job. Chris Guillebeau, Jenny, Stephanie, Nina Yau, Sean Ogle, the list goes on and on and on. Besides all of these people being bad ass, they all share the same sentiment that I do. It’s time to do what I want to do.

So what is it that I do want to do? Well, I know that I’m not down with the whole deferred living thing. You know, work for 30 years, retire, and THEN go do the things you want to do. What the hell kind of deal is that? How about I do the things I want to do NOW, while I’m young and awesome?

That’s basically what this blog is about. My journey to minimize my life and save money, restore my happiness and travel the world. It’s gonna be an epic awesome adventure, and I hope you will come along with me!
