Starting over

Over the last couple days, I moved into what I think should be my home for the foreseeable future.  I had been staying with a friend for the past month or so, with basically nothing more than a week or so's worth of clothes, my computer, my phone, and maybe a few other things.  In a way, I proved to myself that I could live with very little, but at the same time, I also realized that I don't want to live with that little.

SimpLIFEfy 365... backwards

I guess it's time to spill the beans and explain why this blog fizzled out so quickly.  It wasn't that I stopped going through my things; it was that I wasn't in a position to go through anything anymore, as very little of my stuff is actually with me.

In some ways, it's like simplifying everything, all at once, and then adding back what I actually want and miss -- kind of like the guy in the book Stuffocation who packed everything he owned into boxes, and then only took out what he actually needed in his day-to-day life.  My stuff isn't boxed up in another room, but it's accessible if I need it... only, for the most part, I haven't.
