Why I do what I do.
Neuropsychology is the study of brain injuries and their rehabilitation.
The ultimate goal of my life is to become a credited Neuropsychologist and help people with location independence.
The dream to become fully location independent has always been something I’ve played with my whole life. I mean, why would we as a species confine ourselves to a chair and desk for 8+ hours a day.
Why would we focus the majority of our waking life to the labour of someone else’s wealth? All while receiving just enough currency to sustain our lives with expensive living arrangements and low-quality food.
Having grown up in a major western city, the rat race is very real. I cannot remember the time of my working life where I was satisfied with my job.
I’ve worked in almost every sector, from support work to manual labour.
The hours, the pressure, the claustrophobia wore me down until burnout.
The expense of living is so high in my country that at this point I know far too many people who have multiple jobs just to stay off the street.
One missed paycheck could see them homeless.
That is not living.
I’ve lost friends who had dreams and hadn’t achieved even the first steps to achieve them. Spending their time trying to succeed in a system that was not built to succeed in.
This age we are in now is one of transition. We can either continue to live as we have, ignorant that the odds are in fact stacked against us, or we can escape.
While I understand it’s impossible to do this in every circumstance there are minor steps that can be taken over time to free yourself.
At this point, I have travelled to 30 countries in my life not including repeat visits.
Without this part of my life, I feel incomplete.
There’s a need to expose my mind to other worlds, cultures and knowledge. In doing this I become more and more aware of my opportunities and the many ways I can create opportunities for others.
This is imperative for my future career.
The way I do this is by spending the majority of my time in my newly inhabited home by the sea on Queensland’s south coast and travelling in between uni holidays.
On my travels, my main objective is to learn about the indigenous people, and ways that they would like their system to work and how the world outside of my bubble really works.
This part-time nomad life that allows me to earn money based on my own efforts rather than having others dictate my terms has built my confidence and my skills.
I’ve taken up work that has pushed me to learn new areas of technology, I juggle multiple avenues of work according to my schedule and I don’t make allowances for stressors that aren’t conducive.
Through my work with websites, virtual assistance, blogging and writing gigs, this life has been a manageable and creative path to travel.
This is definitely one life decision I’ll never go back on.
So come along on my journey with me and let’s gain all the knowledge before it’s too late.
