30-Day Minimalism Game – Day 12   1 comment

Today feels a little bit like cheating. I am getting rid of a lot of the same thing. I debated counting them as a group. But since I bought them and used them all separately from each other, I think it is fair. Even if it isn’t, it is not going to buy me an extra day, so it’s not a big deal.

The big black thing on the left is an organizer. I got it back when I was going to court over my daughter. I needed to make sure I had a place to keep all of my documents. A lot of them are out of date, and I consolidated what is left into a different folder. This thing is old and beat up, so I don’t feel bad tossing it out.

The five items on the bottom are notepads. The kind that you see detectives, or waitresses, use. I like to jot down notes and ideas whenever they strike me, and so I always tried to have one of these on me. But I always ended up using my phone, and now I have one in my wallet as well. I don’t know why I kept buying these, but I’m OK with them going away.

The purple notebook above them is a similar story. However, I actually love this size of notebook. They are big enough to write comfortably, but small enough to be carried around without much inconvenience. The only reason I am getting rid of it is because I use my laptop, phone, and wallet, and don’t need it. But in the future if I need to buy a notebook, I will look for this type.

The pink book is my old guitar class textbook. It was only $15, and is actually very informative. I kept it around as a reference book, but the internet makes it much less necessary. Hopefully someone else can get some use out of it.

The book next to it on the right is Neil Degrasse Tyson’s Death by Black Hole. It is a collection of his various essays he has written over the years. I like it, and read it quite a few times. But I recently got his lecture series from the Great Courses on Audible, and he covers the same essays. I listen t audio-books more, so I don’t really need this anymore.

The item under it is V for Vendetta. It is a classic graphic novel, and an example of how the medium of comics can be used to tell deep, interesting stories. I’m going to speak some blasphemy here, but I liked the movie more. It cut down on some of the extra threads, which made it easier to digest, and still hits many of the over arching themes. It’s not bad, but I find as I get older I enjoy comics less and less. My brother still is an avid collector though, so he can have this. Even though he was the one to originally buy it for me.

This last one kind of hurts. It is Alexander Hamilton’s Guide to Life. The reason it hurts is because my sister bought it for me for my birthday this year. I haven’t had it for very long, although I have read it all the way through. It was good choice of gift; I loved the musical and the biography. But it is because I loved the musical and biography that I don’t need it. I know 8th level Hamilton spells, and this is a book of only cantrips. My mom is excited to gain a level in Hamilton though, so I gave it to her.

387 items to go.
