I am from FL, currently living in Europe pursuing higher education in my work with animals. I am 26 and dedicated to a life of self-sufficiency... right now, I'm not able to do too much other than focus on my education.
I know when I am finished with my education and come home (2016), I will have the time and resources to work within the self-sufficiency/grass farm/homestead/permaculture/etc. community and meet like minded people. As it is now, I'm just a bit burnt out with those who are not of this mindset and feel 'stuck'. It is a very lonely and stagnate feeling to know what you want to have/do for your future but be currently unable to take proactive efforts towards creating it.
I am also a bit lost about where to go when I come home as there is nothing in particular keeping me in FL. I'm writing this because I'm wondering if maybe there are some members here who would be willing to be a sort of 'link' for me to this community in the States? I joined the forum because I thought this would be a good way to stay in the loop and learn more things, and I am learning a lot of course just by lurking... but I'd like to make some real connections with people and since I'm not actively *doing* anything right now other than my education, it is hard to participate in many of the conversations here.
Looking for a friend,
