Living Simply

Here’s 2008 and it’s time to go over the goals and set some stuff to do this year. And what better place than 43 Things?

First off, things I think I’ve done. First up, live simply. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of this most of my life. Every time I’ve moved in the last 7 years I’ve simplified more. Just out of personal curiosity:

  • Florida (house) → Florida (apartment) 2001
  • Florida → DC 2002
  • DC → Bosnia 2003
  • Bosnia → Florida 2003
  • Florida → Dallas 2004
  • Dallas → Dallas 2004, 2005
  • Dallas → PA 2007
  • PA → Dallas 2007

And I’m planning on moving when my lease is up here.

Since my last move I’ve done without any appliances in the kitchen except a coffee maker. No desk, just one table. No stereo, it’s in the closet and can probably go next move (although the amp and speakers might fill out a media center in the future). No TV. Major CD and book expunge.

I did get a new bike a couple months ago. But I like it a lot. And it’s simple.
