My newest obsession is learning to live “off grid” and to create a self sufficient lifestyle. While researching I dove into the depths of Youtube and came across a channel called Pure Living for Life. They live “off grid” and share their experiences online. Through more research and lots more YouTube videos I have decided to begin my own plans of creating my own “off grid” life. Just by speaking with my parents and my grandparents I have learned so much, like that I have almost no idea what I am doing! But I won’t let that stop me. I have made a rough draft of what I want my house to look like. Lots of my inspiration came from my old friend’s parents’ house. I am trying to figure out which state I want to live in. I could live in upstate New York, Maine, Oregon or Idaho! There are so many factors to this process but I know that this is something I want to do, because every time I think about it I get this funny feeling that something amazing is about to happen. Since I really want to become self sufficient I want to have my own farm which means I have to learn how to care for my animals and how to take care of my crops. I have learned I will also have to teach myself to hunt, clean and skin animals as well. I know I can do it though. I can’t wait to see my dream come to life!
