Trust me, I live in an aluminum can

Alright ya'll, it is official. We live in an Airstream. Which is basically fancy talk for, "I live in a trailer." And, don't get me wrong, I see absolutely nothing wrong with living in a "manufactured home," I just think that my situation is some what unique. I mean really, this ain't no double-wide my friends.

We've had this plan for a long time now, and parts of the plan have started moving a lot faster than I had anticipated, while other parts still haven't gotten off the ground. For many different reasons, my emotions are on, what seems like, a never ending roller coaster. Overwhelmingly, I feel excited that we are so close to making that little dream into our reality. It isn't easy, it isn't always comfortable or fun, but all of the struggling is ultimately getting us to where we want to go.

We have gotten rid of just about everything we own, I quit my job that came with a guaranteed paycheck, and now I live like a gypsy without a blow dryer. Truthfully, I am a little bit of a mess right now and that's totally okay. Things were really busy, and now they are really slow. Aaron is still working his normal job and I have been finding myself pretty lonely. I had a good week long breakdown over it, found myself slightly hysterical, and then got over it.

I got myself a nice freelancing gig, I threw myself into working out again, I redesigned this little blog (which isn't even finished), I'm taking the most confusing design studio of my life, and now here I am, overwhelmed and trying to find time to write. This is my life now, and while I still need to completely adjust, I love it and I love who I'm doing it with.

Your life will always be interesting/entertaining/open for judgment from others.

For example, when you say, "that's the craziest thing I have ever heard," and someone replies, "No. Selling all of your stuff, including your house, and moving into an Airstream is the craziest thing you've ever heard."

Just do what makes you happy, then you can find the humor in almost anything. Trust me, I live in an aluminum can.
