i was born into a middle-class family.
i am seventeen, and i go to a school that costs 9,000+ dollars per year.
so why am i here?

this summer i am dropping my lifestyle of shopping sprees and reveling in a disposable income to live homeless, dumpster dive, hitch rides, and sleep in cardboard dumpsters.
not because i think it'd be a laugh and a smashing good time, but because i'm tired of being around people who care more about the label in my pants than the thoughts in my head.
i'm here for support, because everyone i confide in is freaking out.
i'm hoping for someone to refrain from warning me of the dangers. i know. i'm hoping for someone to embrace my decision instead of passing off my ambition as a childish fantasy.

i hope that this is the place i can get what i'm hoping for.

i'm planning to travel backwoods america, basically - to get away from the city.
somewhere with fewer malls and more farms.
that'd be nice.
i'm also planning a trip to france, though whether or not that will be a roofless trip is tba.

If you haven't seen it already there is a French Documentary about Dumpster Diving in France called "The Gleaners and I ".
