I wanted to build/create something cool that people can more or less use as a resource, and I did that with PSShub.online. I created a friendly little intro into ditching Google Services that doesn't go over anyone's head and shows that there ARE in fact alternatives out there.
Do I practice every single one of those tips myself at this present moment? No. I practice the vast majority of them because some of those services basically just don't apply to my Internet/tech habits. BUt I stand by what I created.
Now that I created a thing that I can s.l.o.w.l.y. tweak and update over time (and I will), I think it is time to move on to other life goals. One of those life goals is to do a BIIIIIG solo backpacking trip all by meself out on a big trail (I am thinking the Appalachian Trails (AT)). I want this trip to occur in October when my lease has run out and I can do so safely, and in a smart way. So I m going to do just that.
But back to what I was saying about tech-related goals – have I accomplished them? Not like I am going to become a freelance Web Designer or learn any good amount of code and become a developer, or build up a self-employed resume/portfolio and pretend like I did a bunch of stuff that I didn't do and work for some megacorp. Just not my style. Employment is not really my style, in all honesty and I suppose that makes me fairly lazy, but I don't really care. Being totally honest here.
There is still some desire to build another cool “Web thing” but I have no idea what that thing would be or what it would look like or if that thing will ever even come into being. The only thing I really can be relied upon to do on a daily basis is to #blogblogblog. It seems to be the only thing I do and as far as working for someone else's #blog (or publication or whatever), it is totally out of the question because I simply hate media outlets and I hate working for other people to begin with, so that is also a dead end (for me). Besides I have gone that route before with a celebrity gossip blog in the “gossip era” 2006-2011 and I am done with that scene.
I just want to do things that actually pertain to IRL experiences and you may see on the Internet the lifestyles of digital nomads and how they “hustle” constantly while they live in paradise, but, I fucking hate hustle culture, I don't like doing things for monetary gain, and I would much rather just have the paradise part for myself. I am already fond of nomadism, in general, but being a “digital” one does not appeal at all.
So, I think I am just going to work on the self-supported trip on the AT. A “section-hike” as they call it (which is like a thruhike, but in sections/for shorter periods of time). Good stuff.
Be back in a bit!
