More Moving

Moving is always fun. Or something.

I would love – LOOOVE – to be able to fit all my stuff in one car trip, the only problem with that is that in order to do so, I'd need to throw away somewhere close to 95% of my stuff. But I'm trying hard. I have a bike to sell, a dresser to pass off on to someone else, a desk to throw away, another desk to possibly sell or just trash, one bookshelf I don't need, and a bunch of other "stuff." Stuff. I keep looking at it and wondering when I decided it was a good idea to bring this "stuff" into my life, but more importantly, why a part of me resists so strongly the idea of throwing it away.

I figure that currently I have 4 trips worth of stuff. I'm working hard to get that down to 2. And hopefully for then next move, I can achieve my ultimate goal of a one-car move. I definitely don't want to clutter up the amazing-sounding toy factory apartment with, well, clutter.

Oh yeah, and I hate my bed. It has to stay with me for this move, but when the next one comes around, that beast is filling up a dumpster somewhere.

    That's a good attitude to have. I own way too much stuff. It prevents me from moving. I've been in the same apartment for six years. I couldn't imagine how many trucks I would need to move.

    Freedom is good.

    all your belongings in one car? that'd be something. I wouldn't want to do that. I like all my junk. I cherish my junk. Though I could easily live without 95% of it all.

    The theory – and there is one – is that I don't need any of this stuff. It's a deep theory.

    The problem is that there's a little gremlin deep inside my brain convincing me that I do need it, or at least some of it. I really want to fight it, partly to eliminate the clutter in my life, and partly just to overcome something that seems so deep-seated in my behavior.

    Once I settle down and start building a stable life with someone, I'll let myself accumulate odd bits and stuff.. but I'll keep a closer eye on what I'm letting in. In a toy factory! With an incredible, and incredibly beautiful girl! 🙂
