New items at the SkoolieLove Store!
What's happening everyone?? Hope you're all enjoying the rest of 2016, as there are still a ton of individual moments left to love yourself and others, before we have a whole new year filled with opportunities.
I've been busy with designing new shirts and merchandise, and a couple of new things have made their way into the SkoolieLove Store.
Thanks for browsing, make it a great day!!
When my fiancee and I tell people we live in a bus in the woods, their first thought is usually not that we share the most beautiful days together. Yet, that's exactly what we do in our 189 square foot debt-free home.
I have recently started thinking about purchasing a school bus and converting in into a Tiny Home. While I was doing some I came across your Instagram and other social media accounts.
I love your bus and I was very impressed with how you laid it out (especially that you were able to get a shower in there, most of the buses I have seen do not even have a bathroom!)
I was wondering how you laid out your bus or if you had some floor plans?
I am forever grateful for the opportunity, experience and knowledge that I received from the American Education System. It has done wonders for me and my life. I can truly say that it’s not just WHAT I learned, but the way I was schooled HOW to learn and think.
Currently, I feel like I have won the lottery of Life, cause I feel like a million bucks! I’m a soon-to-be-married, debt-free homeowner; in the process of writing two books and SLOWLY making writing a viable source of income for our “Bus”hold. (Household)
That “Winning the Lottery” Email!
Since quitting my time-clocked, steady paycheck Job, I have been questioning myself regularly: “What do I have to offer? What can I do, what can I provide to be useful? What is my value and how does that lead to creating an income?”
It was such an incredible story. In one scene, there was an elderly gentleman, Gosa, laying on a cot, with bandages all over his body, having been in pain for a long time. He says to the young traveler that has come through town, that “Life is suffering. It is hard. The world is cursed but still you find reasons to keep living.”
There is nothing like living in a fully self-contained School Bus (maybe vans). It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Being able to hit the open road, while retaining that comfort feeling of home, because you are Home, brings an immeasurable feeling of contented joy. A feeling of fullness, completeness. New, yet familiar. Freedom of the open road; Drive anywhere you want to go.
We can all learn something from each and every one of us. Every little piece of your life will mean something to someone. Do not let someones age fool you, as it is just a number. Experience is the true indicator of wisdom.
“Don’t believe that you're going to get rich renting out your time to someone else. Always create your own wealth, by fueling your passions. Spend your minutes on love and moment-to-moment experiences. Think less, feel more.”
Share your life’s value with someone.
It was quite horrible. From a slow dribble now and again, now I really had a coolant LEAK. I told Mary to call around for a mechanic while I tried to tighten the clamp as tight as I could to be able to drive it. I can find my way around tools (and build a bus with help) but I am not a mechanic by any means. This was too much with my limited everything. She found a Napa Mechanic two blocks away.
Two weeks ago, my fiance printed out and delivered her two-weeks-notice letter to her employer. She worked out a deal with the apartment landlord, stored her car with family, and flew to Florida so that she can move into the bus with me. And let me tell you, my new roommate is loving the Bus Life!
We talked a bit longer, about the details, the future, and how it could possibly all work out. What sparked my idea was that there is a Tiny House Living Festival in Portland, September 15-17 and I have been invited to attend. That means I have to drive from Florida to Portland, Oregon and I figured that it would be fantastic if she was able to come along, as a sort of pre-honeymoon, where we would be together the entire time and could then figure out how we can live in Seattle. The more I talked with her, the more it sank in that this was a most righteous plan.
