Stuff

It’s crazy how much we consume in our lives. Do you ever just sit and wonder how we can just keep producing stuff and dumping it somewhere when we’re done (or in my case, when I can’t keep it anymore)? Incredible. It’ll be really fascinating to visit places where people don't have so much "stuff". I hope I'll be able to learn about how they see the world.

I picked up my tickets for the trip yesterday. It was kind of exciting to see tickets for 20 flights print up. I'm going to be flying a lot. Something like 36,000 miles.

Life feels a bit strange. I've got a slight sense of liberation that comes from having to sacrifice one set of desires for another. That is, I wanted certain things in Los Angeles and because of this choice to give up my job, my home, and many of my possessions, I can no longer have certain things. Not now at least. Knowing that I can't have what I desire seemed to relieve some of the pressure of trying to obtain it.

Fatigue is already getting to me. I may be stressing too much over handling my move but I just want everything squared away in California before I take off. I don't want to have to worry about burdening people. Being as independent as I am, it gets to me to have to ask people for help. Most of us are willing to give each other a hand but honestly, we'd be just as happy using our time, energy, storage space, etc. for ourselves, right? It's not selfishness, it's just comfort.

Yeah, I don't know what I'm saying anymore either.

    Dear Tony, I'm actually excited to read what you're going through right before the trip, let alone what's to come during the trip.

    Please continue to share! Gives me something to look forward to during my days at work.
