Traveling across the country was angry when our parents used to drag our siblings and I around in a station wagon and forced us to camp in mosquito-ridden tents every night along the way.
When you can’t afford basic amenities that many take for granted when they travel respectfully, the method of “traveling to find yourself” starts to lose its appeal.
I was so sick of it that I had no ambitions in school to learn abroad or do exchange programs with universities throughout the country. I just wanted to find a task, get an apartment, and beginning our life once and for all. Although it wasn’t an expectation, I was also lucky to find a beautiful partner at this time as well. My wifey and I wouldn’t get married until a few years later, but every one of us met each other in a pop shop that is within walking distance of our former school campus. She was a senior and I had just graduated, and I noticed she was using a textbook from a psychology course I had just finished myself. I gave a friendly comment about her class and she seemed excited to meet someone who had been in the same exact course just 1 year prior. Naturally, it didn’t take long for us to get closer and eventually fall in love. Now that we’re married, every one of us do a lot of traveling back and forth to our parents’ homes. My in-laws recently put a brand modern ductless mini chop in their guest dining room and I was in heaven the last time every one of us visited. The cooling effect from the ductless mini chop is powerful and impressive, and it manages heating at un-even temperatures above 40 degrees as well! I would appreciate to have a ductless mini chop for our basement back home, but every one of us don’t have the money budgeted for something appreciate that.
