it weird that I plan to slowly move myself off the grid and that I have a book that i put a list of farm equipment and a list of animals and how many of each and different sections of the book are labeled kitchen, living room so on and a list of things I would need to do things myself such as making cheese and oil soap , and each section has a estimated cost based off what each thing or animal currently cost. im also 16 and started making this plan at 10 and I started a savings account just for this. know one knows about it but me. Is it weird that I have done this? What would people think if they opened that book?
Is it odd or weird would people think I'm nuts?

I make it a policy to not opine to questions from those less than 18, particularly young ladies. Since there's no sexual content, despite the GAG category, I'll opine here.
It just sounds to me like you a young woman with her head on straight who knows what she think she wants and is planning to get it. I applaud you.1
You want to go off grid? right?
According to me it wouldn't be a wrong thinking, it's fine. It's your choice, if you have your life planned that way, it's fine.1
Since you were 10 at the time you started your list, I have to believe there is more to it than just an interest in the lifestyle. When I was a teen, I too had an interest in a more rural lifestyle. It didn't take long to realize I wasn't interested in it at all. It sounded good, but I didn't want the life it entails. You may be different, but I would think about what was going on when you were 10 years old. "Getting away" sounds so good when life has been tough and you just want simple. I don't think you are nuts, weird or strange at all. You are different , but that is a good thing in m, y mind.0
Well I think you are a very organized young lady there. At an age where people would be thinking about more material things, you have been planning for the future :) kudos :)
And as of weird, anything /anyone that is different from the masses they term weird. Now weird can be 'better' than them as well :)0
Some people aren't meant for the city life. I'd encourage it. Get off the grid, get a little peace. Would be awesome if you faked your death too...0
No, I think it's smart. To me, it's like learning how to use hand tools before moving on to power tools. There is no better way of understanding something than by going back to it's root. Understanding the simple life will help you understand more complicated concepts from the modern life.0
I don't think it's weird at all0
I am sure there are many people who would like to do that0
A lot would find it weird. However I am not one of them. I greatly admire those who learn to be self sufficient. Don't be discouraged by any naysayers.0
I guess you're rather disappointed with the election results... Although I may be incorrect, I think the Amish live like this. Old fashioned, "off the grid", making their old food etc. could be worth checking if it's something you're interested in. Don't listen to society, it's you that makes decisions for yourself - not them.0
Doesn't seem weird to me. But I'm not normal though so yeah xD0
Personally I think that's a really cool idea and it's something that appeals to me too, and am even more impressed by your organisation! So no your not weird. What I would say is don't be too hasty to move completely "off grid". Explore other things, places and opportunities first. Also, ask yourself why you want to do it. Because it could be a beautiful and fulfilling thing to do, but it could also not depending on your motivations and state of mind, so just be careful.0
Just do what you love.
And forget about society.
That's how you live life.1
Lotsa people think the most important things in life are being popular and having piles of expensive stuff. They're superficial idiots. What you wanna do is great! :)0
That is a little strange0
thats not weird at all.
Nah. Everybody has some sort of plan in life. At school, I act while I'm insane and weird in front of certain people so the won't want to talk to me0
We all have escape plans it's just you seem to have more of a follow through than the rest of us.0
It's fine chill0
No your not weird. Follow your dreams with whatever you want do.0
No, that's trendy and fashionable. Fucking hipsters want to retreat from existence.0

No, its not weird at all. You are a young adult and a person who thinks and plan ahead. That is how you succeed in life, besides just getting the resources you need to get those plans down. It will take some time. But as long as your open minded to changes in your plans, it should be okay. I was doing the same thing: making a road map for my future before I was even 10. A lot of people thought I was crazy, including the adults. Thinking how "... your a kid, you shouldn't have to think about these things." Says the ones who are still struggling too get where they were supposed to go in life. It will envy a lot of people. But don't give in. You'll make it. And you will find people who eventually shares your views and goals in life.0
It's not weird. It's just what interests you1
Carry on, @soulbabe... Normal and Nice Nature.
Unique with no Squeak. xx
Nope, you know what you want and you are working on acheving that. There is nothing wrong with that. If that is how you want to live who is anyone to tell you anything.0
i find it great, rare and admirable. real nuts is that nuthouse we call society and big city life today. totally out of sync with humanity's origins... .0
