Be the change you want to see in the world
I'm in college. I've dropped out three times and still have a full scholarship. I'm thinking about a forth. I'm a gay, vegetarian, anarcho-pacifist. neo-pagan, too. I could put myself into more boxes if you'd like.|
I'd like to go off the grid. I don't want to pay taxes. I don't want to shop at wal mart. I've had enough of bombs and sweatshops and industrial agriculture. there are so many days where I feel like if I were to really listen to my conscience that I'd just get up and leave, hitchhike somewhere, stop using money. I don't know how to do much. I write a mean research paper, which is not exactly the sort of skill I need for this. does anybody know of someone or somewhere I could go to? I'd love to be a gypsy for a while - or settle down with some cool people and learn permaculture and some skilled trade things like carpentry or something. renaissance fair nerds are cool too - I'm all about learning how to make my own clothes, instruments, and stuff like that. I know I can't be the only one out there who feels this way. the only reason I'm not already out on the road is because I'm afraid of doing it alone, and not knowing where to go.
what's up, folks? anybody hear me? anybody already doing this?
