My Assault on Stuff & What I'm Doing Next

My recent war that I've been waging has been against stuff. For a while (and by that I mean since 7th grade), I've produced my own income and spent most of it on things from the internet. I've talked about this before so I won't bore you with the laundry lists of my posessions.

Then when I sold my house in North Austin, I was faced with the prospect of moving all that stuff. My most financially productive years were while I lived there, so I bought a ton of stuff. During that period of collection it never occurred to me that I would eventually move. My garage as well as one of the bedrooms in the house because warehouses for my things.

When I moved, I took a pretty extreme approach. I went through every item in the house and made a decision - either I needed it or not. If it was worth more than $50 or so I sold it. If it was worth less than that I put it in a bedroom. If it was worth less than $5-10 I donated it or threw it away. I posted my address on craigslist and let people go into the bedroom and take all that they wanted. Within a few hours the bulk of my stuff was taken away.

Sushi!!

On Me and My Thoughts

Sushi and I haven't clicked yet. See the thing I like about sushi is the whole thing that it's Japanese not that it's nice. I love Japan and I really want to love sushi.

I had sushi only once and it was in this new sushi place near where I live. I went with my girlfriend and she had sushi before so she was telling what's nice and what's not. I looked at the menu and most of the sushi on the menu was tuna. I don't about other places as I said this was my first time eating sushi but on this menu there was loads of tuna. Well I don't like tuna but I said I'll give it go and try it.

I took the first roll, we got the rainbow rolls. I nearly got sick. I took the tissue when my girlfriend wasn't looking and put the half chewed sushi roll in the tissue. It was not nice at all. But the good thing about that experience in the sushi place was that I got green tea. And me I never had green tea didn't even know what it taste like. I took my first sip and I fell in love with green tea. It was just amazing. After that day I would drink green tea everyday and still today I drink green tea. It's one of my favourite drinks.

But I'm not giving up on sushi I will love it. I want to love it.
