"Every gain in personal temporal freedom entails a corresponding loss in how easy it is to coordinate your time with other people’s. The digital nomad’s lifestyle lacks the shared rhythms required for deep relationships to take root.” Resonate with this quote. In college, I traveled a lot. I took gap year to travel and studied abroad two times. At the same time, I did not have any long-term relationship in college while I prioritized personal exploration over relationship. After graduating from college, I am enjoying the lifestyle of living in Seattle for the majority of the time while living in Honolulu in the winter. I also have more time to cultivate intimate relationship.
