1yr.later: removable things-gone

one year ago i was still in the planning stage of moving to b.a.. i over came many internal hurdles to move here. something like "how can i give up a great job, a 401k, health insurance" and on and on.

some other internal issues i was having was giving up all my belongings, all my possessions. i really thought i would feel worthless if i didn't have anything to show for my X number of years in school. i would have nothing tangible to prove to society that i was successful.

well, that was my fear then...one year later and i have no regrets. at times i miss driving my car but that's about it.

i'm glad i made the move.

Oddly, I don't remember reading that post.

Here, I thought that you had much more in common with me when it came to material things and my penchant for being ever on a decluttering mission.

You must've managed your material urges well and been quite moderate, because I never would've guessed.
