The mystery revealed… kind of

6 Mar

 

Okay, so the dream was to get away… to have an adventure, an experience never to forget.
And it’s about to happen 🙂

I’ve been wanting this for years now… to live abroad and be in a completely new environment, with my own place, my own friends, another language, other food, just free and independent.

This summer, I’m leaving for eastern europe. And next year I’m going to the south. Isn’t that great? I’ll have to step out of my comfort zone. But I’m not afraid. On the contrary, I wish I could leave right now. But I’ll have to dream a little longer, spring will be in Belgium.

I think I can’t even express how excited I am. I feel like I’m not even completely here anymore (my heart seems to be somewhere on the road). More to come on preparations, excitement and flashforwards. At least being accepted is one huge goal achieved.

Plan B

27 Feb

Okay, this might sound weird. Even though I lack a plan A (obviously, I don’t know what I want in life!), I have a plan B. A plan for when things don’t work out or when I get that fed up with the world as it is that I can’t go on any longer. The plan is simple.

Go away. To a small village, who knows where (it really doesn’t matter, as long as it is unknown and very, very far). Take books (a lot of them, so that I can read at least five at the same time, to avoid being bored). Learn how to grow potatoes and tomatoes and stuff like that. Learn how to build a house (not in theory this time, but in reality, with my own hands) and apply this knowledge in foresaid far-away-place. Try and survive without a real job. (Unless somebody knows a way of getting paid for reading books?) Only connect to the internet once a week (if possible at all) and stop using cellphones (who needs them anyway?). mp3-player is allowed, because music as essential. And so on.
Some details have to be worked out, I know. First of all, I don’t have the money to pay for a piece of land or building materials. Also, I will need some electricity to charge the mp3-player. Maybe wind-energy? (I don’t trust solar panels. Heavy metals can’t be good). But aside from that, It sounds pretty good to me.

Maybe it could even be my plan A. Screw the people who will say that I’m crazy. I know that. But everything is relative… Or have I mentioned that before?
