My name is Breanna. Up until recently I’ve lived a fairly typical life. I graduated from high school, went to college, got a job…all that good stuff. But none of it was what I really wanted.
About two years ago I started living a somewhat minimalist lifestyle. Nothing extreme, but I got rid of a lot of my stuff and stopped buying things I didn’t really need. That fairly simple change did a lot to improve my mood at home. Less stuff meant less stress.
I still wasn’t very happy with my life at work though. I felt trapped in a job that would keep me trapped in a town that I had barely ever set foot outside of.
So I did the only thing that made sense. I quit my job to go on a three month long road trip across the United States. The trip had its ups and downs, but overall it was a great experience.
Since the road trip ended I’ve been living life more on my own terms than on society’s terms. I am working on goals that I never had time for before due to the 9-5 job I had. I am now self employed and am able to travel whenever I want to. I am so much happier than I used to be.
This blog will chronicle my current travels as well as my experience on my road trip. It will also touch on other aspects of my life that are important to me, such as eating well, exercising, and managing finances. Enjoy!
