#32 I’m Going on An Adventure. A Dude Going His Own Way.

Well I packed up my backpack and rolled out of a another town and state. I had everything ready,worked my last shift and then left the building by the fire escape (the doors aren’t alarmed). No one saw me leave,I vanished like a ghost.

Now it’s 24 hours since I slipped out that door.

I didn’t notify my boss until early this morning when I was one state and and different time zone away that I was resigning. Once he awoke and read it he was actually very positive. Telling me the door is open if I were ever to decide to come back.

Living and working in the same place sounds cool at first but there are hangups to it. People tend to forget that you are not on the clock 24/7.

I got sick back on mothers day and I’m still not sure if I have fully recovered. Other events at work that led to an increased work load for me and very little time for myself. Well alone Summer the dog I took in and then asked a friend to take care after only a month. I have not slept truly restfully in probably a couple of months.

I finally broke. I told my boss in my resignation that I was mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically broken from the abuse work had put me through. And the only way for me to be able to repair the damage was to quit and leave town.

An adventure again I roll across the highways of America to a new destination. This time I will say. I am going from Tampa,Florida all the way to Denver,Colorado. As I am writing this I am somewhere in Mississippi now, headed to Louisiana for a bit before my transfer in Dallas,Texas for the final leg of my trip.

Role-playing game anology time. Part of the game is exploring the map and finding new locations and experiences so you can level up. Tampa was a map I explored,met other characters and earned plenty of experience in. Now I am on the traveling and grinding part of exploring the map. There is no “inn” in sight and the save points are far and few between.

I am looking forward to this though. Denver where my favorite plant Cannabis is fully legal. Other than wanting to work with animals, wanting to work in the Cannabis industry has been a dream. The possibilities are endless and so is the supply. Plenty of coin to earn. I got a knowledgeable connection in town, willing to show me around.

I am just a Dude Going His Own Way.

#27 Once More With the Sun

Well​ my birthday is coming up again at the time I begin this writing it is 3 days away.

Time again to sit in retrospection and recap my year. Take stock of how I have developed.

Well since last year. I have quit two jobs, lost one,moved twice and lost my furry life partner. Battled my depression over Christmas and New Years. That all happened over the course of 9 months.

In March. I chose to leave a bad living situation and relocate over a thousand miles away. I may still be having trouble finding steady work but the positives outweigh the negatives.

Positives

  1. I’ve lost weight.
  2. I’ve become physically healthier than I have been in a long time.
  3. Found my spiritual connection to the world.
  4. Enrolled in school
  5. Determined my values
  6. Determined my short and long-term goals.
  7. Became a Dudeist Preist.
  8. I’m seeing someone,she’s pretty cool.
  9. I’m off my meds.
  10. Dealing with my anxiety better.

Negatives

  1. Had 4 pretty bad anxiety attacks.
  2. Still don’t have a steady job.

That’s all just off the top of my head.

I’m in a transitory phase in my life.

Becoming Reverend Hersh and discovering who this dude is.

Taking it easy. The Dudeist Way is the best change for me. Now I just tell myself this and it helps my anxiety attacks go away.

I’ve had so many positive experiences. 

Made new friends CJ an older (black) man who’s a veteran resembles Danny Glover but reminds me of Morgan Freeman, Roswell my friend of Spaniard descent who looks Mexican even though he isn’t,the girl I am seeing with her dark ebony skin and lively attitude she helps keep me grounded and my success coach without that leadership class I would still have no idea where I am headed with my life.  And a host of other people have contributed to my growth as a man in this world. All the people online who I may never get to meet in person from those that have been around for awhile to my newly added fellow Dudeists.

My personal development into a better person than I even thought possible. None of it would have happened if I hadn’t taken the risk and left town​. The best short notice decision I have ever made. 

Next year is the year of 42. 

Don’t Panic,Take It Easy,Yes-I know where my towel is and Life Is Just a Ride.

So thank you all for being a part of this journey that is my life. 

We are currently in the prologue of a new book for me. So not only am I defining who I am. I am also deciding who gets to stay and who gets unfortunately left behind. 

Come abide with me. 

Namaste my brothers and sisters Namaste.

#26 Vision for the future.

A follow-up to the last post. 

Again super busy with school, trying to find a place to live, and steady work.

But my vision for my future is clear.

My Vision

My personal life  Vision is to improve the well-being of all felines from the common house cat to large predatory cats. To be an advocate for large predatory cat conservation efforts. Being the public voice of feline and dude relationships. I plan to establish the First Temple of the Crazy Cat Dude,which would be the first physical Church of the Latter-Day Dude. A peaceful site where cats who have been long awaiting adoption due to age or health problems can live out their nine lives happily cared for. I desire to become physically fit so I may continue my vision for all feline kind through the rest of my days.
