After watching whats seems to be a reasonable amount of documentaries about wild life, human nature, government policy and procedure, human condition, and many many more important and entertaining pieces, i’ve come to realize about as much as i would have if i hadn’t watched these things. Yes, i think i know more about what i perceive as life, but the more i find out, the more i realize that i have no idea what im doing. i have that unwavering urge to just say “fuck it! im fucking gone!”, and im sure im not the only one who has submersed under the passing wave of eagerness and angst. I’m 21 going on 22 soon and i’ve spent 5 years thinking about freedom, into the wild, individualism, expression/understanding, and curiosity for the unknown. This is not a feeling that passes if it is truly what you feel you are supposed to do. Some people feel the desire to lead their nation and spend millions of dollars achieving their goal. all im wanting is to take the leap of faith despite all of the expectations that i carry from family, friends, and peers. I love me. I know how to love others. I’m capable of the perfect human experience (which is ultimately relative to each person’s desire). And so i may not leave tomorrow, but the second i see the cage left open, i’ll make my escape. Good luck to everyone. I love you all (especially those who looked up “escape society” on google and ended up here). i wish you all peace, love, clarity, and reason.

haha. yeah. all of this is pretty cool. this website is a great idea, but all of you seem to lack the initiative. just do it. stop saying you will and do it. there are places off the grid. so grab some friends and the essentials. go live off the grid. im down to start something. a revolution. i kinda hope 2012 grips people with fear, and the ones not afraid, i hope they tear down the system. because…whats stopping us from revolting? haha. this is all of our planet. not just the ones with money. you have one life, i say…start changing the fuck out of it. stop giving a shit. seriously! stop! otherwise your going to be like everyone else. broken, old, and wondering what life is all about. figure it out instead of figuring out how to flip burgers for your job, or merge companies for your corporation. im no anarchist, but im all for human rights. and right now, they are dwindling. wake up…please. if everyone doesnt wake up, you’ll sleep till your dead and wonder why the whole time. find a soul mate. have a best friend who shares the same views so you can grow from each other. eat good food. really good food. find the fruits of life and roll with the punches. adapt, and dont think that you have it all figured out. drop your ego. unless your eating mushrooms or acid or something, you probably think you have all your shit figured out. try and really open up your mind. yes, fish, hunt, and plant a garden. love willingly. unconditionally. but stop giving a shit. laugh it off. breath deep. and get out of where you are. everything has purpose. and we are all the same. dont let family hold you back, theyre going to love you no matter what. smoke a joint once in a while. swim in the ocean. take road trips. wake up for the sunrise. that shit is cool. but do it with friends. do everything with people who know you REALLY well. find the person who is almost exactly like you and trip out together. i sound like a fuckin hippie. it works though. and get off the grid. im 20. alive. and hungry for insight. fuck obligations. there is no such thing really. and fuck time except for when its your last few minutes. but dont take a single day for granted, you can do a lot in a day. get out of your routine. go travel the world. with friends of course. say fuck it. get that rush. i fuckin love life right now. its 3am. and i am sober, and ready to live the wanderlust lifestyle. see you on the other side.
