We are just a few days away from moving out of our house and officially beginning our sabbatical year. That means I also have only a few days left to sleep in my own bed with my own pillow. I’ll miss that.
The nerves are starting to kick in. Are we really doing this??
Well, we booked a storage unit today, and our lease on the house is up soon—oh, and our internet, water, and electricity are all shutting down… so I guess we really are!
It definitely hasn’t sunk in yet. Randomly, I’ll feel a little anxious, but I think that makes sense; what we’re doing isn’t exactly normal. I think it’s nervous excitement. Maybe a little restlessness, actually. We originally planned to be out January 1st, so I’ve been itching to go for weeks!
My office is taking a lot of work to pack up. It’s just so complicated with all the gear and wiring. I’m also resisting the urge to shove everything into a box like spaghetti. I’m taking my time and trying to organize things neatly so I’ll actually be able to put it back together in 2021.
I’m super excited for the Dallas, San Diego, and Los Angeles meetups happening in the next few weeks!
I’m excited to announce our official move out date: January 26th! I’m so happy to finally begin our sabbatical year of nomadic world travel, and hopefully get to hang out with you in person.
We won’t have a house or car, and we’ve sold a lot of our other possessions as well. Everything we’ll use for the next year will fit in a backpack.
While we have some specific places in mind we’d like to visit, we also want to connect with people. I’ll keep you posted on any meetups in a city near you.
But beyond meetups, a number of people have reached out to actually offer us a place to stay—which is incredible!
The only problem is, I’ve had a hard time keeping track of the various comments and messages from people offering us a place to stay in various cities. So I came up with a solution: Continue reading “We’re gonna be nomads! (Can we stay with you?)”
It’s time to say goodbye to my favorite room. We will move out of our house later this month and begin the 2020 sabbatical year of nomadic travel. No house, no car, just a backpack.
I wrote my first book in this room and recorded hundreds of podcasts and live streams here. There are a lot of good memories.
The studio is optimized for production. I can walk in and everything is ready for me to create. Whether I want to record a video, podcast, or write, everything is ready to go. I will miss that. Continue reading “Goodbye to the Studio”
