NOMADISM

is the pathological (becoming unhealthy) desire to wander between two places, sometimes aimlessly repeatedly changing ones residence and occupation which normally gives rise to instability and social maladjustment due to the lack of social interaction with other individuals over a prolonged period of time.

NOMADISM: "Individuals without a fixed abode or career path can turn to nomadism, whereby they drift from place to place without any long term plans."
