A Quick Move
All week I had amazing ideas for stories and blog posts and how to make millions of dollars, yet when I sit down here at my keyboard it is like I got hit in the head by a linebacker coming over the middle. All the good ideas. Gone. In the flash of Chromebook booting up.
I am in the process of moving and let me tell ya, moving sucks. I have done it enough that I’m fairly minimalist at this point, but I always feel like I have too much that I don’t use. For example – the two pair of swim goggles I have still in the box. I don’t swim. I haven’t done laps since college. Yet, I still keep these swim goggles because some day in the very near future, I will have the need to wear swim goggles. Or at least that’s what I tell myself as I dust them off and pack them for the 4th time. Also, when am I going to donate this Hawaiian shirt? Even when I’m in Hawaii I don’t have a need for a Hawaiian shirt. Ever. The only thing I can imagine is some sort of Office Space like theme day where I can wear a Hawaiian shirt or some sort of tiki party. Then again, I’m 37 and really don’t have any need in any capacity to be attending themed parties.
Forget about the fact that I STILL have old college text books that I have been lugging around for the last 15 years. I didn’t read them then, I’m not going to read them now. Not to say I can’t stand to learn a thing or two, but twenty year old books about cultural geography can probably go in the donate pile.
As can all of the belts, alarm clocks, chargers….
