What I want to do is spend the whole summer, starting July 4th, travelling the country. The trip will be about 10000km total. I will visit lots of towns and see lots of diversity. I guess this is like an experiment to get my life back on track. A bit of background info: My life is pretty fucked at this point although in past weeks i've been getting better. My diet is completely out of balance, I don't exercise much, and I love spending time with myself. In general, I'm just not very good at the game of life. Im missing too many of the "instincts" that other people seem to have. When I travel for the summer i'm going to camp out each night. Im going to stick to a strict diet of oats for breakfast, tuna or chicken for lunch and pasta for supper. I'm going to eat one apple per day, one orange per day and possibly more fruits. Each supper meal is going to supplemented with green peppers, onions, mushrooms and other veggies. Im also going to exercise each day. This will include stretching, cardio workouts and yoga. I'm going to take in some nightlife. I will go to bars and see if I can develop better social skills because at this point in my life they are pretty much non-existant. I'm not really anxious in social situations, I just prefer to avoid them. But I realize that I need to change this. I'm on Effexor for my depression right now. Although im coming off it because I don't think it is working for me. I hope being on this medication won't affect me too much while im constantly on the go. So basically, this summer I will be forcing myself into being active all day. Hopefully this will set me in motion for when I go back to school in the fall. Thoughts? Suggestions?
