A Bum’s Life.

by Dori Nicole

I am living my life the way I always imagined I would as a kid except I am way less renown and famous. I consider myself to be successful.

I often wonder why my way of life never makes the news or why it is never romanticized. Maybe it is and I just never watch the news. Or maybe I’m on the road to becoming a hobo and just don’t know it. Either way, this has got to be the way that life was meant to be lived.

Living place to place, city to city is an adventure in itself but it also turns me into a ghost in people’s lives.  Although I travel slowly, I’m never in one place long enough to see the next blue moon in which I’m in contact with a friend so maintaining relationships is pretty rough. In 3 years I’ve lived in 4 different cities, 2 different states, on 2 different coasts.

This is the way I am happy right now. And although it often goes misunderstood, I don’t know any other way I would want it.
