Camping in My Jeep and Some Intentions

Hey everyone!

I thought I would give you all a little tour of my Jeep, Ringo, and where I’ve been camping for the past week. I’m not very good with the vlogging stuff but, to be honest, I don’t want to. Ha! I’d like to stick with blogging.

So, I did leave California once again. I wanted to be practical and “responsible” a couple of months ago by going back to picking up the same job and the same shit I left a year ago, only to be reminded of why I left the first time.

To me, the sense of freedom and independence are the most important aspects of my life. When I feel restricted or a sense of obligation, I lose sight of who I am and then things get stupid and I end up feeling like I’m wasting my time. So, basically, I would rather sleep in my very own Jeep than to deal with other people’s shit under their roof. And in California, it’s very difficult to afford your own place. My finances became its worse over the last year, just because I wanted my own place. So I’m outtie, until I can really afford to go back.

Since the cost of living in Cali is extremely expensive, my intentions is to find somewhere outside of California to start a new life. I would like to learn about horses, learn to play the piano, meet new people who I deeply resonate with and hopefully find a house to buy where I can grow my own garden, have enough yard space to own a couple of dogs and have a lot of privacy to read and meditate during the day and then rock out and sing to my dogs at night! Ha! I may also decide to go back to school and finish my BA in Philosophy as a means in itself, not a means to an end.

This all sounds out of my reach at the moment because I’m completely unclear of how to make it happen. But I’m optimistic about it all and that’s why I’m here in Sedona: to gain clarity about the next step to take, just like I did back in June of this year. What an exciting road trip that was and I plan to do it again next summer!

Anyways, I moved whatever is left of my stuff into storage back home in Southern California, near my sister, so I can go scout where to begin a new life. I’m thinking here in Arizona or Texas. We shall see. But in the meantime, I’m just camping in my Jeep, doing some solo hiking in the area, working out at the gym and then ending the day with taking a nice hot shower there!

So here’s a little video clip I have from this morning when I woke up. The end of it cut off but the majority stayed. I also managed to get a shot of a hot air balloon passing by me. Anyways, enjoy!

Blogging Milestones

Today marked my 200th blog post. Yay! I was also reminded of my 1 year anniversary with WordPress.com. Double Yay! And I’ve gained almost 400 followers. Triple Yay!

I wasn’t sure what to expect over the last year when I pulled out my credit card to pay for this blog but all I remember is that I was completely drunk off wine and I just wanted to write because a lot of weird things were happening to me and I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences.

Even though many of my posts were inconsistent to what I intended to write about, I still accept them all and glad they were all published. I still intend to write about a lot of what I said I would, and I’m looking forward to that along with achieving other blogging milestones….whatever they may be. Ha!

Thanks everyone for reading about my life so far and thanks for keeping the blogging world alive with your own! Triple cheers to you all and Happy 11.11!

Sunshine Blogger Award

Thanks, Len from Len’s Diary for the nomination!

I’m not very good at correctly responding to these blogger awards much like my past post because I feel everyone deserves a blogging award just for keeping the blogging world alive. But I do very much appreciate the acknowledgement of my blog and I do like to answer questions. So Len, I will answer yours.

–  What country would you like to live in
United States will always be home but I’d love to live in New Zealand for a few years! That place is beyond beautiful and the energy is awesome!

–  Do you like the turbulence of the sea or the peace of the desert
The peace of the desert. I grew up near Joshua Tree National Park and star gazing was a favorite pastime of mine.

–  What is your favourite colour
 I always laugh when this question is asked. Black. Pretty much everything I own is black. Black never goes out of style. 🙂

–  What is your favourite TV program
For a long time, it was Lost, but now it’s a cross between Peaky Blinders and Castle Rock

–  Are you a fan of social media
Absolutely not. I think it’s great for ethical business use but not for personal use.

–  Are you a passable cook
I can be, but I don’t like to cook, just like I don’t like to sew. Haha

–  What genre of books do you read
Philosophy, Spirituality and Business

–  Do you follow sports. If so what team.
Nope. I’m not a huge fan of American sports. Ice hockey is pretty cool. I went to the Ducks vs. Wild game the other night and had a blast watching the fights, eating expensive food and drinking Moscow Mules in a can!

–  Do you follow astrology. If so what sign are you.
Yep! I’m a Sagittarius Sun and Ascendant. 

–  What do you think needs changing in society
Society’s diapers and a lot of ass whooping.

–  How do you see the evolutionary progress of the human race 500 hundred years from now
Well, after watching Ex Machina a couple of times, I’m not sure. Insecurity, anxiety and short attention spans are at their highest since social media and the smart phone were introduced. If the internet were to shut down for just a day…all hell would probably break loose.

 

 

Astrology, My Natal Birth Chart and Some Randomness

I’ve been wanting to blog about this for a while but didn’t because I felt caged in the hermit mode type of energy that sits in the corner and feels sorry for itself. Plus astrology was just one of those spiritual aspects I’ve wanted to pipe down on. But recently, I’ve picked it back up.

So now that a huge astrological shift has happened, I can feel it, big time! It’s Jupiter returning home into Sagittarius! I have been waiting for this transit since October 2017 and it has finally come.

A Little Something For My Mom

Any time I’m in Sedona, Arizona, I try to swing by the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

I’m not Catholic but my mom was. She tried to get me and both of my sisters to go to church all the time with her when we were younger but never forced us.

We were all baptized as Catholics but out of the three of us, I was the only one who never received Confirmation and Holy Communion. So yeah, I wasn’t allowed to eat the bread and drink the grape juice.

A Wink From the Cosmos

Yesterday, I randomly decided to take a break from my drive along the Pacific coast in a city called Depoe Bay, Oregon.

I sat in my Jeep for a good 30 minutes to take in the incredible view of the ocean and to catch up on my journaling because I haven’t done so since I was in Canada a couple of days ago. As I finished journaling, I decided to grab some food at one of the places located behind where I parked. I saw a sign for clam chowder located on one of the restaurants but for some reason I didn’t feel it was a good idea to go there but I did want chowder. I looked a little to my right and saw a place that looked really good and definitely caught my attention – Gracie’s Sea Hag. Ha! I went into Gracie’s and had myself a bread bowl full of awesome clam chowder.
