Minus my-today, over the past few days, after I’ve done a brief rowing set of 50 strokes, I put some time into cleaning some of the objects I’d like to sell. I’m not yet sure when I’ll be starting to sell things, particularly if I have a new job that might materialize shortly if I put in my application, then I can sell more leisurely, and, use this essay and video series to showcase selling reasonably.
I have a new idea for helping me get out more – both objects that I want to donate that reside in the apartment-mansion and to get out more – which is to have a tithe every time I want to go thrifting. Now that I’m back to work, working in an office, and having learned how to tie a tie for an interview, I’m now enjoying wearing ties, which means I want to go thrifting more.
For these the Zeal project episodes I’m writing/recording “live” in the few days before I return back to employment, the themes of each episode might be scattered. Some talk about music, others videogames, and others still the topic of this essay, which, all correspond with some strategy or strategizing toward my goal of moving out of the apartment-mansion efficiently. For this episode, I want to cover how I’m storing the stuff I kinda wanna keep.
My-Today, I wanted to go on an adventure. This would be probably my last major outing to a certain part of town in a while, since I’ll be going back to work soon, so I wanted to stop by some of my old haunts. This thrifting adventure represents one of the last bastions of my old materialistic self, and I feel like I did well for myself in terms of holding back – only five items!
Now that it’s official that I’ve got long-term employment and a rent renewal for the apartment-mansion, my plan is to downsize/sell/donate as much as possible so that when I move out, the process will be easier. These videos I’m recording while writing these essays have been helpful, but I’ve also been figuring out how I can sell things faster. I asked AI about this, and I have a rough game plan that I’ll be following.
For this 50th episode of the Zeal project, recorded with a video session along with the writing session, I don’t really have a super exciting celebration to have, but I do have a designated space for selling small items now, I suppose. The space is one shelf of a bookshelf and has a ruler. I can see if this is a good idea or not, but at least it’s accessible, so that’s some good news.
My-Today, I thought about writing “Novel 02” stuff, but I’ve done for the past two days now, and I felt it might be more useful to unpack some of the things that I’ve been working through over the past week. I was able to clear out a significant amount of space prior to recording this video and writing this essay, which will help me clear out more space over the next few days… possibly for sales?
The plans I have now are to live-write and record these Zeal essays at least twice a week, if not more, until I find employment again. My-Today’s interview was wild enough to where I did make progress but I needed to blow off steam by cleaning around the apartment-mansion as a direct result of dealing with a recruiter that couldn’t understand that the ten-digit number I provided was my phone number. This is 100% serious/accurate information.
For this update of the Zeal project, which I am now live-writing and recording video for at least a few days a week since I am not working at the moment of writing/recording this essay, I have two major components that I’ve been working on that have room for progression and enough of an update to be worth writing about. I’ve figured out how to file away my CDs properly now and some videogame news.
In my journey to clear out the materialism that has taken over my life, by way of the apartment-mansion being overflowing with things, I’ve begun the process of figuring out how to process my CD collection. Recently I “unearthed” a box of CDs that I had intended to sell, were it not for COVID and my disability. Now that things are back on track, and I can live-write and record these essays, things are moving!
