i'm fighting for my freedom. i'm a servant to debt and all things which got me there...a motorcycle, a root canal, several educations, clothes, food, rent, eyeglasses, moving. and the sad truth is i don't really care about these things now. of all of them, the root canal was the only thing i'd say was worth it. so, i'm abandoning the path of credit and debt, i'm fully embracing a cash based economy. i'm ready to be a minimalist, i have plenty of clothes, plenty of books, and entertainment is free if you know where to look. i live in the most wasteful country on earth where it is impossibly easy to scavenge basic needs like food, water, clothing, and even toiletries. from this point forward, all available cash goes to reducing debt.
it shouldn't take me long, less than a year. maybe less than 9 months if i play my cards right. once i get my debt-freedom back, i won't be so careless about losing it again. i've heard that owing nothing is the new wealthy, and i believe it.
