CabbageCat Midlife Crisis Adventure

Problem: Went through a breakup this week. Mid life crisis. No home, obligations or plans for the future. 

Reaction: Either I sit around being sad and get defeated by something that was out of my conrol. Or I move forward and do something I couldnt have done before. Focusing on the biggest project of my life.

Solution: Im going to buy a 2008 Prius. Turn it into a home, and travel the country for a year. I will visit 48 states, meeting people along the way, and documenting the journey on youtube. Couchsurfing for a year, my first true adventure. A life changing unforgettable goal. I will support myself by making memes for companies like I have been. I will meet tons of artists, musicians, other meme friends, and all types of interesting people that i've met through my life on social media. I need to level up, focus on myself, and creating content in a new way. Putting my all into a year long travel vlog will keep my mind learning new things and growing faster than ever. 

I tried to get a loan from a bank for the $6000 but none of them could help me. They tried but without a steady paystub from a job it couldnt be done. Its hard for a freelancer since I just started a year ago. If people want to donate to help me out they can. I know making a gofundme for a car is shameless, but this is the quickest way I can move on and get started on a new life goal. I know there are people who love the idea and want to support. For everyone who doesnt want to, or doesnt have extra money THATS TOTALLY UNDERSTANDABLE AND OK. I LOVE YOU JUST THE SAME. This is mainly for people who became millionaires on bitcoin this year and want to support a meme lords couch surfing adventure. Also the idea of living in a prius at age 29 is a meme in itself, I think thats why im drawn to this idea so much.

I feel like ill never have this opportunity again. I can get my work done from a phone, I know people all over the country that id love to meet, and I have nothing at all tying me to a geographical location anymore. The perfect storm. Maybe i'll write a book after or get a crappy vice show who knows whats next. Maybe ill get killed by a bear or freeze to death sleeping in the car. Honestly im comforable with any way this goes. Thanks for reading youre very special.
