Earthship Techniques

I believe that a minimalistic lifestyle outside fulfills me and allows me to struggle for what is important to me. My goals will feel especially right to me once I do finish the 50 states because I feel I will always have a life lesson tucked away with each state, and I can be more personable with others who are from different areas. It’s a good idea to have a degree to also go about sustainability in an ethical and logical way so I know I'm making smart decisions. In that, it will bring wealth as long as I am determined.
