This weekend, we’re moving from Cupertino to our new house in Santa Clara. Over the years, I’ve accumulated a boat-load of junk. I’m trying to simplify my life according to Felix’s principles, but it’s difficult. Why in the world do I find myself insisting on keeping these things far beyond their usefullness? Perhaps it’s sentimental or perhaps it’s the thought that I might use an item in a few years. Sometimes I wish for the days when I was a freshman college student, when I only had one carload of stuff with me.
Fortunately, there’s a city-wide dump day in Santa Clara coming up. If I don’t get rid of it now, I’ll be able to do so when April rolls around.
