Road Trip

I've a long list of things to do "when I get better." Recently, though, I've been doubting the day will ever come.

Though there are many things in which I feel lacking, including energy and motivation, what I do have is time. Lots of it. And I know that if and when I'm feeling better, I probably won't. I also was unable to get a job this summer due to unemployment rates and resulting number of people older than me who will willingly work in the fast food and retail industries, so most days there is nothing planned.

I live in a wide country, that, although it's becoming more homogeneous, still contains a vast number of different experiences. I've barely ever left my home state, and maybe there's nothing that's really left for me here. Maybe choosing my own ground will help me break out of this stupor; I don't know.

So I'm leaving Tuesday for around three weeks.


  1. I envy you. I don't have the courage to do something like this (and I can't drive, which is a non-starter for a road-trip.) I hope you have a wonderful, eye-opening journey. I hope this is the making of you.

    Are you going alone? Stay safe xx

  2. Yes.

    Thanks for the well-wishes. *hugs*

  3. Sometimes a change of pace can do wonders for you, especially if the place you live in brings you down.

    Once this month is over with I'll be doing the exact same thing, actually. Just keep yourself open to giving this life another chance - you might be surprised to see that the grass really is greener on the other side of the road. Best of luck to you, take care.

  4. I hope you enjoy your road trip. Sorry I haven't really been around in a while, hope you're ok.
