At first I was little bit shy about my life style. Most of the people who hear it at the first time would raise an eyebrow and ask “What?” with other questions following. Now, I’m more used to that or it became easier since most of the people who I know, know my life style.
During the last era of time, the usual norm of work and life has changed a lot. Some people will try to get out of this technology overloaded world and want to live off the grid and some use it as an advantage to try out new things like living in van or traveling with one bag around the world.
These kind of shift in social life and my interest in new things has lead me to buy a 1999 Volkswagen Eurovan with all my cash and move into it.
When I tell people about my life style the usually ask these question:
My day usually starts at 0500AM, having a strictly routine helps to make less decisions. Who likes to have decision fatigue, right?
After having my breakfast, I go straight into my work. This is my most productive time throughout the day. Once I’m done with a certain task I aimed to finish, I go the gym to workout, usually around 0800AM. I come back to work, have my second breakfast and would work until lunch. I turn off my brain for an hour, spending time with co-workers and playing Smash Bros. Lunch time is a no guilt spending time for me. I get back to my work take a coffee break around 0300PM. I try to finish my work at 0500PM and spend the rest of the evening for myself. This includes learning, practicing my guitar, horse head violin or just meeting friends sometimes. Whatever I do I would try to start preparing for bedtime at 0900PM and sleep by 0100PM.
When I started I thought and imagined myself traveling more often. Specially during the weekends. But I guess I just like spending more time on my computer.
During the last year with ups and downs I never once looked back and regretted for what I’ve chosen. I was blessed at that moment and everything around me made it possible to pull this off. Being able to fit my whole live a van opened many things for me.
A special thanks to dear friend who encouraged me to do it.
