More than a Dating Site, A Community of Critical Thinkers
Welcome to my piece of the universe!
I believed for years that other people had things figured out. Now I realize everyone is about as clueless as the next person. I decided to create my own world and did just that. I hope you'll be respectful, responsible, and understand nothing online is safe. The entire world is not safe.
I wanted music for meditation and joy so I created my own!
I wanted to know how to build a business so I made my personal brand and show others what I learn along the way.
I wanted to know how to have a YouTube channel so I taught myself IMovie and editing.
I love learning new skills and sharing my knowledge with you!
I adore information and will entertain quite a lot of whacky, quirky, and just plain crazy ideas. I love debate (non-emotional attachment but information sharing/knowledge building) and will discuss just about any topic (keep it clean).
I am writing a novel based on my exciting inner world ideas.
I hope you’ll join my journey!
After an exhausting couple of weeks, migrating the site back to its own domain and ironing out all the other issues. I am beyond happy to announce you can log in with your Survivalist Singles account info and use the site! My apologies for all the technical difficulties during this process. I am so happy to provide this service to you and hope you enjoy it as much as I love providing it!
Dive into the community and let’s build it strong together!!
I don’t think I thought too much about the fact that Shane and Aly homestead or live off the land. They’ve just been my friends. I never put them in any classification. Building Survivalist Social has me thinking of not only providing a great user experience but also great content! Of course, I started questioning whether or not I deserved to own this kind of site. So, I started going down the list of reasons I don’t fit as a survivalist genre business. Then, I thought of all the reasons I am and how much my life is suited for this!
From living off-grid in a convent at 17, to homeless in L.A. in my 20’s. I did live in bugout property in my 30’s and within the last few years lived in a RV held together by duct tape. I figure, I have a few things to share about surviving. However, I do plan to bring you great articles to help you in your journey.
I was out at Aly’s when she invited me to the garden. I’m so proud of her! This soil was tough but this woman is tougher! She’s just kept at it until it worked. I’ll have that article later(she wanted to get her makeup on before she’d let me snap her photo).
The fence in the back, her husband Shane and her built. They have agreed to let me interview them to bring you guys real world experience. They are still building their house so it’s all fresh!
Right off the garden are the chickens. There was a pretty speckled rooster but he wouldn’t let me get his pic. This one was giving me the eye, I swear it!
When we got back to the house to sit a spell, we found Roscoe relaxed like all ginormous dogs do🤷🏻♀️. I’m pretty sure his paws are the size of my head. He’s also incredibly sweet and cuddly. Roscoe gave me a hug, he put his paws on my legs and his chin on my head(like I said, he’s big).
Anyway, we had a great visit, the kiddos enjoyed their time and so did I. Since they’re still building she happened to have an extra kitchen faucet. Who knew it would be just the size of mine AND fit the style of the house.
So cute right?! Oh! I walked away with a couple of green jewels, zucchini and cucumber. The plaster washes right off with water. I’ll have to get her installed and show her off proper. More articles to come from this! Stay tuned!
I know that preppers can come off as pretty doomsday at times. The important thing to remember is “prepare for the worst, hope for the best” so while a collapse is possible that also doesn’t mean we need to lose our minds preparing for it. This is a marathon, not a sprint. The little things we do daily are what will get us to where we want to be. There is still time to enjoy our lives.
I found Jeff Berwick a few years ago. I admire the man for his bravery, living life on his terms, and sharing his beliefs as he irons them out. If you don’t know Jeff, go check him out! He founded Anarchapulco (seriously check this out!) and well, so much more! I was watching him on a panel about a week ago. Jeff was giving a talk with Mark Skousen, I go to the Mark Skousen School of Business. I was pleased as punch to find these two at a conference together! Both are beautiful minds I would love to sit around chatting with.
However you slice it, money is still an important part of our lives. Jeff is savvy on crypto and the market. Use your own best judgment when listening to others about your finances. Choose your life well!
Being prepared means having a plan. Knowing where you are going once the SHTF or being in place on your land to withstand teotwawki is a big step towards surviving a collapse.
Coming from a military family I heard things such as “prepare for the worst, hope for the best”. This is the philosophy I took in party planning and it turned out well. The truth is, a collapse would be difficult at best for everyone. Preparing is wise for all but imperative for those that think critically. Here is a website called SurvivorRealty.com, they have listings for bugout property in several well-known states. Take a gander and maybe find your dream retreat.
There are many ways to prepare, just as there are people. When we come together for a mutual goal, we are stronger. Being in the city offers more risk but works for some. Whereas, the comfort of grid/off-grid bugout property and living on it always ready is a better solution than for others. Even still, there is are those that city dwell and have a plan to evacuate once it all starts collapsing. Whatever your choice, make it work for you! Even if you’re bugging out alone, building community will help us all!
What’s your bugout plan? Are you going it alone or forming a group? Do you already have a plan in place or just starting out? What woke you up to understanding the need to prep? Join the community here. Support the community here! Together we can build our community and create our world!
The shirts will be available in several colors and sizes. I’m expecting the finished file tomorrow so that I can post the shirts for sale. Thank you all for participating! I appreciate this opportunity to create an amazing community for you! I’m working every day to make it better!
It’s hard to compete so pass legislation to remove competition? I guess that’s one way. I learned that you do the best with what you have. I learned that there is benefit and detriment to every situation and once you find your benefit you can win! I learned that instead of whining, you work harder so that you may find success.
While I understand the founding fathers created government as a parental unit, we seem to have fallen off the deep end here. This is lazy parenting, appeasing the child so you don’t have to deal with the tantrum. In my experience, they just become more demanding and entitled.
Here’s a little secret…we are a capitalist society. The market is deciding what it wants, these failing restaurants aren’t it! Let it go and tell the businesses to work harder. In the real world you get punished for an oversight or misunderstanding. I think my question in all this is, which group are the kids and which the adults? I mean, obviously this is a fight between children and adults and somehow I got in the adult camp. I’ll take irresponsible please!
I’m afraid that in our pursuit for utopia, we lost focus. In order to live well, you have to know how to deal with the difficult things in life. Not only to difficult things make us better and stronger, they also teach us valuable lessons to make us successful. All we have to do is embrace it! Not legislate it.
I just, this is, dare I say?…Un-American. We are the land of ‘I’ll take the responsibility for the freedom’ so what went wrong? Is this the natural byproduct of affluence?
I want to raise money to make this site work for the community. I feel more comfortable offering something of value. I have a couple of designs I’m putting up. Please vote and let me know which you like best.
