[before_listing images= youtube=null] Hi! My name’s Joey, I’m a 23 y/o who’s sick and tired of always being sick and tired. The only time in my life I felt good was when I lived with nature for three months. We hiked, cooked over campfire, and I fixed my glasses with some string from my clothes. When I came home, my mom offered to take me to the drugstore to get one of those glasses-fixem kits and I started crying. We are a consumer and service oriented culture and I’m getting more bitter every day I stay in this greed and hate ridden society. I work at a call center with air conditioning, ergonomic everything, and no windows. I sit on my butt all day. I want to get my hands dirty, take breaks in the sun, work for my food instead of working for money. My vision is not a Utopia, there will be work to be done and nothing is ever easy. Think Amish with less religion (not to say no spirituality) and less repression. Even as a little girl I always said I wanted to go out and live in a forest. Why can’t I make that a reality? Email me for more information and details about what I’m thinking as well as helpful suggestions and what you may be thinking/possible collaborations. Thanks! beautifulchaosgifts@gmail.com[landbuddy_listing youtube=null]
