getting out of here has become top priority. at least it's become more urgent since my vacation. i want to be somewhere warm sometime soon to settle in for the winter. a woman came into my work tonight and talked a big story about the virgin islands. i've come to learn there are no quarantines for animals and it's relatively easy to move there on a whim. when i went to hawaii last year, i was disheartened to learn of its stringent animal quarantine policies and thought i couldn't do the island life with a cat, but now i'm pleased to learn, it isn't that way everywhere. i wonder if i could take my van there? i'm still inquiring.
work sucks since i've been back, i haven't even made 100 bucks a night which is horrible. i'm losing interest in sticking it out. i can make this kind of lousy money anywhere. i will give it a few more weeks, but i have to figure something out soon.
today i took everything out of my storage shed and reorganized. this week i'll have plenty to do sending things away and selling/giving items i no longer need. i'm getting very serious about paring down to the essentials. i have no time for extraneous things, i'm a serious vagabond.
i feel a new page has been opened and i'm ready for it.
