Just in time for warm weather!

I’m officially living the dream.  No more getting dressed for work, dealing with bosses.  No more… paychecks.  Ok, so almost the dream.  I’ve been planning my exit strategy for a while now, but I have to admit that I left a little prematurely.  At some point there is a line that you need to draw – one that clearly identifies what is and is not something you are willing to do for money.  It was very cinematic at least, I felt like a revolutionary – waking up from the dream to remember that life existed (and still does!) beyond those walls.

I had a couple of days where I alternated between celebratory lounging and panic.  It’s funny how all of those big plans I had seemed to suddenly escape me.  BUT – I made a list.  I WILL remind myself what I really want and I will seize this opportunity in free time to make them happen.  The list is as follows;

  1. Finish book proposal (More on this later)
  2. Open ETSY shop (I have some things in the works)
  3. Start a web-comic (Or something illustration related, preferably published on a schedule online so as to keep my motivated)
  4. Buy an RV (Long term goal, one that involves WVO conversion, solar paneling, and eventual full time living and traveling)

There’s also a book or two I’ve been meaning to read… in a bathtub.  Better get started!
