Everyday is a vacation

I think a lot of people would love to live their life as if they are on a permanent vacation. Before I was married, I didn’t make a lot of money but felt like that everyday was a vacation.

For me, vacation means:

  1. Eating out/not cooking
  2. Not cleaning
  3. Spending time outside
  4. Not working
  5. Ready to travel

Eating out is cheaper than cooking, if you are not picky. I ate mostly fast food. Of course, it is not healthy but it is vacation. Also it is still better than overeating home-cooked meals.

Cleaning is easy if you live in a small place, don’t own too many things, and not cook in your place.

And cleaning becomes even easier when you don’t spend a lot of time inside your home. I would rather sit in coffeeshop than watch TV on my couch.

Not working is hard but it helps when you do something that you enjoy. Programming and technology are fun for me.

Ready to travel just meant that I was minimalist. As a minimalist, whenever I wanted to buy something, I would to ask myself, “if I was on a real vacation, would I bring this thing with me?

So other than TV and Playstation, I could pretty much put everything I owned in a carry-on suitcase.
