    How I'm Exchanging Design Work to Find Good Things Everywhere via magazine.good.is

    Lukasabout 1 month ago

    Hey. Fair point... and to be honest, I don't know yet. I worked as a regular employee for a number of years, but obviously i won't have enough left for retirement from that. While I travel I'm keeping my eyes and ears open, when the right business idea or solution pops up I'm willing to give it a shot. A lot of countries solve their problems better then others, it's about spotting those differences on a small scale. The future is bright anyhow :) Thanks for throwing that in!

    Well, I have observed one thing many times. I positive attitude and an open mind make a magical combination. Throw in hard work and you've got a winning combination every time. GOOD LUCK!

    How are you going to save for retirement? I'm not dissing your idea. It sounds ideal, but my roommate is a 58 year old artist and musician who has traveled all over the world and has some fantastic stories--including walking on fire, living in a hut in Africa for over a year, and living in Hawaii. He has made many friends along the way, living much the way you are describing. He has no money and no retirement. His Social Security will not be that high, either, because he rarely held a conventional job. He has no permanent home. Just make sure you keep putting some money aside for your old age and never touch it! Good luck with your work. Make it viable!

    Answer This: Do You Have Health Insurance (If Not, Why)?

    Kristen Haynie6 months ago

    I don't have health insurance, and I have absolutely no intention to get it anytime soon. So far, my experience with healthcare in the United States has been horrible. Doctors don't listen to or even care about my needs. They just want to prescribe a pill and move on to the next person. I prefer what people are calling "alternative medicine" which from what I understand, includes everything other than taking pills to mask your symptoms. Unfortunately, "alternative medicine" is not covered by any health insurances that I've been able to find, so why should I pay for health insurance if I have no intention of using it? I will pay for my own healthcare when and how I need it.

    I wish there was a "like" button. I have health insurance through work, but I think our healthcare system has very little to do with helping us help ourselves be healthy. Doctors are only useful after something really bad happens like a broken leg or a heart attack.
