Hi There, I’m Sparky!
I wanted to create this blog because I was sick of living paycheck to paycheck and following the same antiquated rules for life that seem to hold most people back. Like most of you, I acquired student loans, purchased a new car, paid way too much for rent, and have worked 90+ hour weeks.
The Path to the Simple Life…
But, I am done with those things now
I decided I want to live for me. I want to live a simple life with friends, and travel and new adventures.
If you really think about it, those are the things that matter.
“Nobody on their deathbed has ever said “I wish I had spent more time at the office”
-Rabbi Harold Kushner
Brief History Lesson…
Once upon a time I used to be a chef and work in fancy restaurants. It was some of the hardest and least rewarding work I have ever done. Sure, I didn’t have to deal with customers all too often. What I got in exchange was to pull 16 hour shifts while working a line, trying to prep, and simultaneously costing out recipes to ensure profitability for a boss that would gladly pay most employees minimum wage. That’s for the birds!
I’m living for me now
I don’t have all the answers yet, but I’m working on it. I’ve downsized considerably and have been working on new and exciting projects to help me achieve my goals of Bohemian living.
Join me on my adventure to freedom!
