Six Things I Love About Living in an RV

I was on the phone a couple days ago with my friend Hayden. After hearing about my plan to continue up to San Francisco, he predicted that within a year I would be living "somewhere posh". I doubt it. I really just love living in this RV, and can't imagine circumstances that would make me move out (famous last words). There are certainly upgrades I'd like to do (more solar, more batteries, more water capacity), but for now I have no inclination to move out.

Why do I love it so much? What makes me so willing to give up things like adequate floor space for a trash can? Here are six of my favorite things about living in an RV.

Moving becomes easy. As I skateboarded over to my favorite Ethiopian restaurant (Rahel on Fairfax), I realized that I am basically a Los Angeles resident. Not for tax purposes, of course, but I feel the same as when I lived here a few years ago. Visiting somewhere, complete with sightseeing, hotels, and rental cars, feels different than living somewhere. I may only plan on being here for a few weeks, but I feel like a resident.

Don't Be Cool

On Striving For Happiness

One of my roommates, named Ryan, is obsessed with coolness. It’s very strange. I never noticed it until a few months of living with him. The majority of people think like Ryan, but Ryan says what he thinks lol.

Ryan has many interesting opinions. Once I talked about eating alone at a restaurant and he went on to say how he could never do it, because it’s too weird.

When we go out to the clubs and talk to girls if at any point we are standing alone or get rejected, then Ryan wants to leave and thinks everyone was watching us.

Ryan really believes if he made 2x what he makes now (he makes $50k now) he would get more girls and be happier. He thinks the key to happiness is a brand new BMW.
