As I was trying to fall asleep at 3 in the morning after 4 hours of code jam, I find my mind wandering about how the future is exciting and the past was awesome, and if I would die now, I would not regret a single bit of what I’ve done so far. Part of the comfort comes from what I’ve learned in life and how it changed me. I figured this would be a good blog entry since I haven’t updated it for years.
I prefer (borderline OCD) not to waste stuff
Coming from Malaysia, I have long despise some of the American lifestyle. There’s just too much waste just for the sake of convenience. Some of these are: zip-lock bags, using paper towels for EVERYTHING, disposable insert-your-favorite-anything-here, etc. This just pains me too much. Therefore I always prefer tuppleware to zip-lock bags, rag cloths or my bare hands to paper towels, non-disposable alternatives. Come on, the Earth will not contain us much longer, my fellow human beings, do something about it.
I prefer a minimalistic and uncluttered lifestyle
Somewhat similar to the above, I have adopted a minimalistic lifestyle. You don’t see much crap in my room, maybe because I’m sick of packing before moving. I used to always be the first to ask for free stuff, now before I buy anything, I would ask myself, will this be useless after a week? Just ordered a pretty small sized projector. It’s portable and not as bulky as a TV, this is great.
I prefer everything to be digital
I guess all my preferences relate to one another in many ways. Kindle books? Check. Credit cards and bank accounts linked to mint.com? Check. This is why I love technology. Good stuff.
Maybe I should just rename the post title to My Minimalistic Lifestyle.@1 year ago
