Stuff

I wonder if I'm the only one who feels so burdened by stuff. Yesterday two different people tried to give me something and I turned them down. The first was a group of lynden la rouche people who wanted me to take some of the pamphlets, I scanned their first handout and gave it back to them. They did try to give me a thicker pamphlet which I browsed through before returning.

They didn't believe my "minimizing resources" claim which isn't really fully true, it's more that I feel like my apartment is stuffed and any additional thing might cause it to implode into a black hole of consumer junk. (From what I can see I'm not that far off from the typical american in my level of clutter, I just feel far more oppressed by it than most. I also feel like I should be able to fit into a small apartment unlike the typical response of just moving to a larger location.)

I did decide that perhaps I'd be a bit happier with myself if I improved my personal environment so I've started trying to clean up the pile of junk mail and the bit of my bookshelf that started to colonize my floor. Hopefully tomorrow I can take another load of junk to the thrift store.
