Yeah but seriously there's literally no such thing as a lighthouse keeper anymore. It's all automated. I absolutely checked.

shattering dreams I didn't even know I had yet

this might be an odd one but did you ever consider being a Carnie?

you travel to butt**** nowhere towns, free room and board, you get to party in the carnival drunk as **** every night after close

if I didn't despise children I might have done it

I don't think carnies have to like children tbh but how the **** do you even join a carnival? I don't even know how they still exist. How do they recruit?

Same. As a teenager I wanted to move to Maine when I turned 18 and just sort of gradually weasel my way into being a lighthouse keeper, (because that totally would have worked) but my dreams were crushed after actually researching it one night. And then I actually considered becoming a carnie (like elph said) as a sad alternative, I guess..? I know full well it would be miserable and not romantic or quaint at all, but the small idiot goblin in my brain still thinks it's a good idea for whatever reason.

re: carnival apprenticeship

you can apply online for some of them

but your best bet is to look and see if one is in your area, go down there for a night and try to talk to management about it

I now wish I lived in a state with forest fires. They have watchtowers for that ****. Maybe I could live in a watchtower all year round and just look for smoke, but otherwise be a guy in the woods with a bitchin' view.

'Freaks on the peaks': the lonely lives of the last remaining forest fire lookouts
There were 10,000 lookouts, scanning the wilderness for signs of smoke. Now just a few hundred remain, and they pass the time hiking, writing and knitting

That sounds awful tbh. I'm basically a salesmen who has to live with people who have personality disorders 24/7. And if I ever want to get out of it I'm in ****ing Ohio or Arizona or where ever the **** and praying that we get anywhere near Virginia at some point so I can come crawling back to my mother's house. I might as well just stay here.
