In my estimation you are smart enough to survive anything, homelessness should be a piece of cake. I am lucky to have a job where they tolerate craziness or I would be in that same boat. Fortunately researchers are always more than a little nuts so we get cut a lot of slack in the being weird department. As far as being prepared for the future I try not to make too many plans these days. The future is something I don’t really think about other than to recognize that it will always be there waiting for me. It’s not going anywhen.
As I have said previously the future is big and scary and always seemingly just out of reach. Then suddenly before you know it you are there and it’s the present and then not a shortest measurable moment of time later it’s the past already. WTF? That sure was fast. But the future is still out there staring you in the face, laughing at you, calling you a big baby and asking you what’s taking so long. F-you future is what I always say.
Love ya Cindy and stay weird
