I think I've discovered the secret to living like a Rock Star...get divorced. Okay, it's not quite that simple. There is actually another key element: procrastination. Here's how it works, at least for me and ultimately it will lead to me living like a Rock Star.
First off I want to qualify this by saying this is of my own doing, I am a procrastinator. But that is key to the Rock Star life.
First things first, you and your spouse decide that things aren't quite working out in your married life and divorce is the only option. Second, you procrastinate...again this is the key.
You know that eventually you will have to find a place to live, after all you can't co-habitate anymore...you're getting divorced! (Even if you are the best of friends, it can tend to cramp a persons style if you're having an intimate moment with your new "friend" and your ex comes walking through the house in their bathrobe.)
Finding a place to live sounds easy enough, except to a procrastinator like me. For the last 16 years I have enjoyed living in the house I'm in. It's a nice house but more importantly, I've gotten comfortable in that house. I like the big oversized bathroom, the two sinks, the wood floors, the big picture window in the front room, the yard, the way the ceiling fan is slightly off center in the bedroom, the fact that the nearest neighbor is a half acre away but the fact is, it's not my house. So for the last couple of months, while the divorce hangs in limbo and I've had plenty of time to research and find a place to live...I haven't put much effort into it because...I procrastinate! I keep thinking that I'll be driving down the street and there will be a sign in the yard of the perfect house that says: "Phil....this is the house for you!"
Now you may be asking yourself: "Phil...get to the point, what does this have to do with you living like a Rock Star?" Well after much procrastination, my soon to be ex-wife is wondering if I really am planning on moving out! So finally I have set a date for my departure from the place I've called home for more than 16 years. February 1st. That is the date that I'll start living like a Rock Star.
What do Rock Stars do? They go out and tour. Where do Rock Stars stay when they are out touring? Hotels. Where am I going to be staying as of February 1st? A hotel.
Now if I could just figure out how to party like a Rock Star.
