[Moving Zeal] Moving Quick Wins

For larger projects, I’ll tackle the “next important task” first. If sequentiality is ambiguous, I’ll tackle any easy task. Moving everything out of a hoarding abode is tricky because things will accumulate randomly without curation. Rather than just moving clutter from one area to the next, I’m focusing on critiquing each object and collection, starting with the easiest stuff: recycle the near garbage once collected for potential art/troubleshooting projects and sell or store videogame collections.

[Moving Zeal] 50% Off Sales

I don’t care about half the stuff I own. Sure, I enjoy observing particular items, interacting with action figures, or listening to albums. It’s just now we’re living in a society where photos of items can immediately be retrieved autonomously, action figures can either be repurchased easily or viewed in dynamic photographs, and albums are available for legal streaming. The message is no longer confined to the medium. Is the only problem purging that pesky 50%?

[Moving Zeal] Focusing on Moving

We get too distracted by innocent things. The quick rush of a new toy, the ugliness of putting in the effort toward finishing some task, or just a lost sense of curiosity. All are healthy, human reactions to living in our distracted society. When we get too distracted by these short-term fancies rather than our long-term flights, that’s when we fall. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be addressing that forthright, starting with seemingly-innocent imagery.

[Moving Zeal] Not Spending Money

I used to go thrifting with my wallet ready to bleed money. I would scour through thrift stores, pawn shops, swap meets, flea markets, antique boutiques, and other second-hand resellers ready to buy anything weird or that which should be in any of my collections. I’m more reserved now. I even doubted if I should ever go back to any thrift stores, but it turns out, it’s easy to turn down that compulsive over-spending. How?

[Applied Self-Confidence] Letting Things Go

I think we start new projects, ventures, and adventures because there’s a rush of excitement over the unknown. As we dredge through the details, we begin realizing how much of a mistake that was, but the trick is figuring out if that was truly a mistake or just something that we must endure. If it was a bad idea type mistake, let that thing go, but if it’s just inconvenient, don’t let that passion go!

[Moving Zeal] Ubiquitous Free Bins

Free stuff is usually favorable. This free bin, for example, helped kick a brainstorm off for “The Storycharacter Trishna. The problem is excessive hoarding. Through this process of moving for the first time in years, I’ve been coming to terms with my hoarding tendencies. I’ve started with destroying that which cannot be resold at thrift stores and reducing my curiosity of diving in free bins or thrifting. I’ve made significant progress toward psychological de-hoarding.

[Moving Zeal] Destroying Old Desk

I’m moving for the first time in years of collecting too much stuff. This weekly column will chronicle the tangible highlights along with discussing my efforts to unravel the mental and psychological knots that developed my hoarder mindset. This mindset may have centered around accepting bare minimums: I never really liked the desk I used in my seldom-used office, Zeal. It was just conveniently there. Destroying it enables the potential to build something better later.
