A couple of weeks ago, @elhector and I were discussing how we’re held down by our possessions, our possessions posses us.
I used to have a laptop and a backpack full of clothes, always ready to leave. Over the years, I’ve settled down and accumulated a lot of things: things I used once but kept in case I needed it again but still haven’t used, things that were gifts that I felt bad getting rid of, things that held sentimental value but were really just collecting dust.
I have too many things. In my tiny apartment.
Inspired by an old co-worker, I am going to donate, sell, regift, repurpose, or throw away one thing every day for the rest of this year.
In an effort to get back into the habit of drawing as well, I am also going to try to commit to sketching each item and posting it here, under the tag less365.
