And that means you're most likely similar to me… Searching for that change, freedom and chance to choose again so you can GO YOUR OWN WAY and LIVE
I'm so glad you have landed here on my little slice of Internet pie.
Growing up by the coast and on the farm was a dream, who doesn't want to spend warm days by the beach and cool ones riding ponies through the forest. Childhood was a dream. High school was fun, but I sure knew I didn't want to more study after graduation, not right away at least.

So I took some summer months off to finally have that proper reset I had needed for years and put everything into my next move, FIFO.
I planned to stay for a year, not making any other life changes, save and see where my soul compass was pointing me AFTER that.
