What I’ve done is designed a way to live where a job loss becomes a speed bump instead of a life changing event that causes a domino that destroys your life for decades. I lose my job. I take a hit but not that big of a hit. Not that I want to lose my job. And now I’m excluding public corporations. Only working for small businesses and private companies. And focusing on the northeast, which the debate was whether I should focus on the northeast or consider two areas but the problem is I Idled too long so I had to focus on the northeast. And NYC of course is excluded for being right in the power control center.
The bikes, the ebikes, the dense cities, the low cost rooms (no assets to collect on).
I’ve gated out the public corporations so they’ll never be used as a tool to hire me and then fire me, putting me on a futile loop where I make investments and then lose them, then have difficulty finding another job.
When I’m indoors, I spend a lot of time on a google chromebook, which is a keyboard driven lightweight device. It works great for browsing social media and especially wordpress/reddit where typing skills matter. The device is so light weight that you can run it off a car battery without charging that much.
When I’m not doing that, I’m usually outdoors, walking or biking.
Sometimes I think people feel that I’m avoiding them. But it’s the way I have always been. I also keep a very minimal inventory. My food cabinet has vitamins, keto powder and apple cider vinegar – that’s it, I buy the rest at local convenience stores while I’m out and vending machines while I’m working.
I’m a minimalist by nature. It’s not an insult to anyone. It’s the way I have grown myself. I once lived out of my car when I used to drive.
