My Story

Updated February 22, 2009

I think that maybe I should try and put less things on my list than can never actually be checked off.

It’s really amazing how quickly you can accumulate stuff. Just random things. And it seems like you go to work and work so hard to earn the money to buy the stuff, because you think you need it for one reason or another, but then you look around one day and realize that it’s just stuff. That’s all. And that it doesn’t really do you any good. In fact, if anything, it’s just a nuisance.

You want to move to a new town? Get a nicer apartment? You have to deal with all of this stuff. What are you going to do with it? Pack it all up and take it with you? How are you going to get it there? How much is it going to cost? Will it cost more than the stuff is actually worth?

It’s as though your possessions just become something that weight you down, keep you from being free to move about as you please.
