What Happened To The Me I Used To Know?

I’ve always prided myself on the fact that I don’t own anything of great importance. If I did then it was portable so I can skip town if I wanted. By skip town I don’t mean run from the police. I mean that if I want to re-invent my life, I can leave and start over again where no one knew me. I didn’t have anything in place that was stopping me.

I have no large furniture in my apartment, save the bed. I have a gym membership to 24Hour Fitness because they are all over the country. I own laptops because I can take them with me if needed. I have an account at Bank of America because they are also all over the country.

The beauty of the line of work I am in is the fact that people need my skills everywhere. I can work from home if I wanted. I could work for a company in America but live somewhere in Asia if I wanted.

So what happened to me? Why have I changed? When did I change?

About three months ago is when it all started. That’s when I bought a new car. I told myself a car is still portable so I can still leave if I wanted. I’d just have to take it with me. I’d still have to pay the payments though. Unfortunately, I had my first car accident only two months after the lease. Luckily my dad knew the best New Mexico Truck Accident Lawyer you could find as he went to college with him.

A week ago I got a dog. His name is Jackson. I always wanted a dog. A dog is a big responsibility!

I am even in the process of saving to get a motorcycle in the spring. I already have everything planned out what I want and what I am going to do to it after I get it.

So why the sudden change? Why am I doing all of this? I like starting over. Starting a new life. Sure, it’s a lot of work but I think it is fun.

I don’t feel any different. I feel the same. So why would I deviate from my norm? Is this what it is like to start growing up? Growing up is scary! I don’t want responsibilities. I want to live my life the way I want to and not have restrictions.
