I thought this was adorable and quickly decided to blog about it.
I like how in 2019 we can find queer creators on YouTube who share their lives for the world to see. I would not be able to stand the scrutiny, but whomever chooses to do so, kudos! These two guys have a strong online presence and seem to be very talented. They renovated an RV and went on a road trip in it. It’s a new way to see queer lives and even though we have not reached peak post-gay (whatever that means), this is a good start.
So they seem to be self employed or working from home. And that’s something I wish I could do. You see, I’m attached to a job that does not really let me be mobile. The idea to be able to work with just a WiFi connection and a computer is kind of a new thing to me, but it’s actually very attractive. It would free me from my desk, but I wonder if I’d miss the daily human contact I enjoy. Oh I know, people sometimes get on my last fucking nerve, but I guess I’m a social person, so there’s that.
I also wish I were as handy as they are. Of course they have had time to refine their skills because they’re not attached to a desk job -something that millennials are doing more and more- and that shows. The final product is fantastic. I’ve written here about my secret desire to downsize my life and these guys seem to have done it very well. And they managed to go on a trip cross country to boot!
And that’s basically my third wish. I wish I could dedicate time to my man in that manner. I think bonding over installing the floor in an RV and then driving it over to the east coast and then enjoy a beautiful sunset while laying on a beach in California in August would be just what I need. I imagine not all of their lives is as Instagram ready as everything they show us, but it would be nice. I have been in short distance trips in an RV and it’s really not that bad.
So yeah, it’s nice to see that two men in love can have this kind of online presence and show the world how this generation is doing it. It’s 2019 after all, and thankfully, not everything is bad.
