For sometime now I have wanted a change in my life. Some catalyst to make it my own. Yes, I bought a condo almost a year ago, you would think that that would be enough. I guess still being in school is making me feel like a child still. Though I do work full time, and am doing well where I am now, I don't feel sucessful. It's a state of mind, an attitude, and when that attitude is mastered and adopted fully life is good. My new idea is to get some land outside the city, probably to the North West on the way to Westlock. I don't know if I would move out there anytime soon, but it would be nice to get out of the city for camping, and build when I can or sell if I can't. It's a fairly low-risk investment. Even if the land sits mainly vacant, all I have to do is keep the weeds under control, I could probably still sell for a profit in the coming years. The prefered option is that I do something to the land, get animals, build a house, plant a garden of some variety.
The perfect picture would include the house being fairly self-sufficient by getting power from the sun and heat from the ground. Horses, cows, chickens, maybe some dogs, a husband, some kids on 25 acres of land. Not that I know how to do any of that, but I can learn. Though, who knows, maybe all of this is just because one of my good friends at work lives in a similar situation.
I was given the suggestion to just drive around, so when I have time I'm going to harass one of my friends to come drive with me, and just look at what's out there.
