Quitting Life Nomadic

As you may have guessed from the title, I am no longer going to be doing Life Nomadic. I'm in the Dominican Republic  now, and will leave as soon as I can find a decent ticket back to Austin. I might go to Haiti first, since I'm already over here, but I'm not sure yet.

There are a bunch of little reasons, but the biggest one is that I feel like it's time for me to settle down. Not completely, with a wife and kids and all that, but I'll at least be staying in one place for a few years. I miss having a house, a car, my own bed and furniture, and maybe most of all: a kitchen that I can keep stocked constantly.

People have been telling me for a while that I should develop some responsibility, and that's probably right. Doing whatever I want all the time is definitely fun, but at some point I have to ask where it will lead in the future. I love kids and know I'll have some eventually. If I keep traveling I may never be in a position to raise them properly.

6 things I learned by not buying books for 100 days

On Mike Dariano

For the new year I resolved to not buy any books or clothes. It's been about 100 days into this resolution and reflecting on the process is important for me to understand why I'm doing this and whether it's all worth it.

I see no reason why I won't be able to continue this throughout the spring and summer. My Kindle continues to get a lot of use thanks to Instapaper and IFTTT and our library has a wonderful lending policy. My only thought is that my wife will view some shortcoming in my wardrobe and will tempt me with new clothes.
