For writing practice, I’ve been capturing the nuances of my days since August 12th in a long-form essay I’ll eventually release called “Time Travel Toxicity.” These Travelogue Trivialities essays take that idea, where I might write about going to some thrift stores for the first time in months, and focus that energy on a one-day adventure noteworthy or touristy. With that in mind, these essays will not be overly academic or objective. They’re written there.
While I couldn’t currently move my stuff into a 1-bedroom apartment, studio or efficiency, if we equate decluttering to fitness, I’ve recently made significant good short-term victories for downsizing the apartment-mansion. Buying this Wingull gashapon recently might seem materialistically regressive, but it, along with the Pignite, represent my sort of Nuzlocke (see examples) attitude toward objects. Rather than clutter my mind with choices, I make one choice, then discard it if it doesn’t work out.
