Okay, I’m posting this because I genuinely want some opinions from the good people of the internet. I’ve been under some fairly heavy stress of late. And I know I’ve sort of been beating that dead horse repeatedly on this blog, but I’m sure it’ll go away eventually, right?
Well, it won’t just go away. I figure I need to do something about it. At the same time, I’d kind of like to cross of one of my bucket list items. Because what if all this stress kills me and I never get around to crossing this off my bucket list? I’m referring to a trip across the country. I’ve always wanted to just get in a car and drive. I want to make my way across the US, see all the sights, get to California only to turn around and come back.
But it turns out, that’s an expensive trip. Plus, I don’t 100% trust my car to make that kind of trip without having a little work done to it first. So the question that needs the opinions of you, the good readers of this random blog post, is this: Would it be entirely selfish to create a crowdfunding thing to raise money for this amazing road trip?
I look at the things that are set up on sites like GoFundMe and have yet to personally see something as selfish as, “I’m stressed out and want to take a road trip, will you pay for it please?” Though I do remember hearing about a Kickstarter campaign some time back where a guy raised thousands of dollars because he wanted to make potato salad. I’m not a big fan of potato salad, but I’ll make some if that’s what it takes to get some donations for this road trip deal.
What do you think? Entirely selfish? Only slightly selfish? Especially considering the fact that there are so many much worthier causes out there. Or is it just crazy enough to work?
