Vagabondage

Vagabond: A person without a permanent home who moves from place to place.



Pictured here is the illustrious House of Blues (HOB). This house represents the sole exception to the following statement: During the past 7 years, I have not lived in one place for more than 8 months. I lived in the HOB for about a year.

Now, I'm just as adventurous as the next guy, and I've thoroughly enjoyed the time I've spent moving from place to place. I'm fairly confident I'll continue to do so until I get my first long-term job. I have this to say, however, about vagabondage...it gets old. So as I continue to enjoy my present lifestyle, I find myself looking forward to a time when I can have a true home base.

It doesn't have to be much. Just a place where roots can begin to grow (the proverbial kind, of course). A place I can actually keep clean (i.e. not an ancient, decaying structure). A place I can decorate. Nothing girly here--I just want some pictures of the temple and other nice things. A place with some furniture that most likely won't give me diseases. And a place with a kitchen. If this is not a worthy goal, I don't know what is!

What's your next housing goal?
