Civilization is the limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessities.
What a week! I don't know which end is up at this point, but here's the long and short of it:
|OK, so maybe it wasn't a very nice motel...|
So today I went to work and then to the YMCA for a membership so I could shower each morning. Wow was I spoiled at UMass with 20 buildings, free WIFI, and seven showers at my disposal. Did you know the Y charges a $75 "one time sign up fee"? I'm too cheap for that, especially when I only need it for a month, so I'm back on the prowl for a place to shower tomorrow morning.
Living mobally changes everything about your day. When you live in a sticks and bricks you think about things like what's on TV tonight? Is there munchable food in the fridge? Did I pay the cable bill? When you live in a vehicle your life is boiled down to the primal necessities like where, what, and how am I going to eat? Where are the most accessible restrooms? Am I going to be safe sleeping here? We spend a lot of time debating all the things that "normal" people take for granted. This really seems horrible to a lot of people, but I kind of find it freeing. Basic necessities are the only things I really need to worry about.
Speaking of basic necessities, I have an appointment to have my car fixed this Thursday. so I can be legally inspected by the 11th. Cutting it close, but there you have it.
