The Nomad Life Was Never Part of Their Plan, But it Works

The Nomad Life Was Never Part of Their Plan, But it Works

When you arrive at a campground, it can be difficult to tell who’s there on vacation, and who’s there simply living. It’s not a vacation for them, not a game, but their life. That’s the premise of the new Frances McDormand-helmed film Nomadland, getting rave reviews and Oscar nods, and available to stream widely. Rather than continue to work his ass off just to pay for a dreary apartment, he cut down his work week, moved into a van, and spent more time outside, doing what he wanted. He started working only 32 hours a week, and since every weekend was a three-day weekend, he spent more time camping with his kids, which “tremendously helped” his mental outlook on life.
