Week 6,7: My Priorities

I have had a lot of time to reflect these last two weeks, and I’ve decided to take a few steps back, so that I can keep moving forward. What does this mean? It means I decided to rent a room in a house, which means I’ll need to participate in the monetary economy, which means I’ve decided to restart Urban Scout’s Sunday School.

Week 5: Dumped!

Yes, after 11 months of relations, Sasha broke up with me this week… for another guy! Of course, I figured we would break things off eventually, her wanting to travel the world and be a journalist and me wanting to live a gypsy life of primitive living, but it still hurts. And that’s good. It means it was worth something. And the nicest part is that there is no bad blood between Sasha and I. I mean, I’m not going to talk to her for a loooooong time, but I don’t hate her… I mean, that much. I’m taking this week off and maybe next to re-calibrate, grieve and set up some new routines. See yall in a bit and thanks for reading.

The Constant Colonizing of My Mind

Get a job. Get a job? You’re stealing from people. Taking from them. You’re a vampire. No, I’m trying to live another way… I’m trying to escape. You haven’t escaped shit. You sit around on your fucking computer all day, driving your girlfriend crazy with your weird sayings and movie quotes and commercial jingles you randomly puke up. You’ll never escape this way.

Jetsons More Primitive Than Flintstones

I feel that most people generally equate technology with physical objects or artifacts. Tangible items we can hold in our hands. Given their invisible nature, social technologies seem to go unnoticed or unrecognized as “technology.” However, right now a very primitive technology has sprung up among the most high-tech communities. In an ironic twist of fate, I have begun networking with these self-proclaimed, “tech-geeks,” to learn one of the most ancient technologies out there: sharing.

Can You Handle It?

My Money and Me

Recently I received a message from a Myspace stalker who said to me: “…you live through your inheritance without a real job soaking up earth skills… i wouldnt mind trying that inheritance thing out sometime…” Despite his insanity and lack of understanding of anything about this project, I still feel on the defensive. I generally try not to care what random assholes think of me. However, to alleviate strangers spreading rumors in the future, I do feel I need to clarify these assumptions surrounding my money and me.
