I’ve had a dream for a while now about how I want to live when I’m “all grown up”. I don’t really know where I got my idea from. I think it’s a mixture of not wanting to get caught in a rut of materialistic living, the dream of living in a tiny house, and (more recently) watching Pioneer Quest.
From the time I was little I loved the idea of living in tiny spaces. I always picked the smallest spaces for my living quarters in games and I loved playing The Boxcar Children. Now that I’ve grown older and discovered the world of tiny house living my dream is all of a sudden plausible. What I’ve realized is that I wasn’t made for a huge mansion and granite counter tops. It’s just not my style. 🙂
My dream is made up of a few parts:
- Living in a tiny house (under three-hundred sq. feet)
- A flexible writing-centered job
- Writing fiction
- Some travelling (just some because I love where I live now!)
The tiny house idea intrigues me because of the lack of room. I don’t want a lot of room, just enough for me and my books. 🙂 I wouldn’t even mind not having a TV. I want to live simply, with just the things that are important to me.
That’s my dream. I hope that I can one day make it come alive.
