Welcome to Temporary Residents

First off, a MASSIVE THANK YOU from both of us, for checking out our blog! Really, it means a lot to us so thanks for stopping by!

How It Began

For years we would escape our cubicles for two weeks at a time, leaving our bosses to worry if we were going to come back or not. There was only one thing that kept us from escaping forever, that beloved paycheck. We get it. Getting paid regularly is great. But one day while bored at work, something dangerous happened. WE GOT AN IDEA! …

It may sound too simple but it’s true. You have to start with that first step. One night we simply wrote down what was needed to make traveling full time a reality. We looked at what was needed and began forming a plan for how to go about satisfying each requirement. With a plan in front of us, the dream suddenly seemed possible.

We Moved

We already had some experience creating websites and editing audio and video. We started scouring the internet for opportunities of online work that we were qualified for. When an online position for an audio editor presented itself, we didn’t hesitate. It took nearly 2 years of building up enough work but one day we did the math and we knew we were ready.

Our friends were happy for us and our families began to think of things to worry about. The owner of the store where we bought our wine cried a little but everyone knew we were passionate about traveling. We had been planning and dreaming of doing this for years and now that our dream was becoming a reality. We sold nearly everything we owned and we have one suitcase each for all of our worldly possessions!

Let’s see … How would I describe myself? Jesus look-a-like? Complicated but simple. Smart but dumb. Contradictory. I’m someone who knows no limits. I love music, nature, ice cream, cereal, and Chinese food (not necessarily in that order.)

Always learning, trying, failing, trying again and enjoying the small stuff. I love music and anything that makes me laugh. I’ll be the first to admit that I dance. A lot. I will forever stick to my life philosophy of never dancing when I’m expected to, and always dancing when it makes you super uncomfortable.

We love staring contests, but if you look away, we’ll know you are weak and an attack is likely to follow. We have a secret stash of cap nip and hip hop records that we bump when our humans are away. In our spare time we write romance novels under Sleepypod assumed names.
