Tonight I’m sleeping in my car. I’m not really homeless, I’m in transition 🙂
My Mum isn’t happy about me sleeping in my car, but I’ve assured her that I’m perfectly safe, lots of street lights and apartment buildings and people around. My mission for this evening is to try to blow up my air bed, which has gone down. I haven’t packed the foot pump so I’m envisioning a few dizzy spells ahead.
Rolling with the budget/homeless theme I am eating cheese and crackers and fruit for dinner, and I have a big bottle of water to see me through the night. (Perhaps a bottle of wine in a paper bag would be more appropriate?) I am strategically parked near a 24 hour McDs for any other night time pit stops that might be required.
My phone and laptop were flat so I’ve scoped the local shopping mall and found a power socket, as I am typing this they are both happily charging. Which is awesome as it means I will get to watch movies tonight yay! Amusingly the power point is right outside an Irish pub, the Manager has given me a few curious looks, but I’m cool with that. Do you think ordering a glass of wine would be too much?
Today has been a strange day, my first day out of Vipassana. The world has been very loud – people, cars, noise everywhere. I had to retreat to my car for some peace and quiet. I will do a retrospective post on my experience at Vipassana – I am still processing and getting back into this reality again.
I’ve honestly never been happier or felt more myself, must be doing something right, even if I am sleeping in my car.
