Minimalism Day Four: Adulting is Exhausting
Just got home from my last birthday dinner, which means I'm officially twenty-three. I was going to take a nap, but trying to be a successful twenty-three minimalist adult, I decided to write today's post instead. I just napped yesterday and I'm not trying to be super excessive with the snoozes.
Nothing too exciting happened today at work. I did have to go to Hobby Lobby for some stuff for this weekend's work event, and that was horrible. There were so many things I wanted, but I restrained myself - pretty sure I should get an Olympic medal for this. I did spend ($10) at the grocery store buying lemon, rice and seasoning for my salmon, but it was so worth it. First time I made salmon and now I think I should be a fish chef. (I'll post that recipe another day - I'm slowly falling asleep as I write this).
Day 4 of my minimalism journey was all about unpacking my necessities that I packed in day 3, but I did things a little different on day 3. I just packed everything that wasn't a necessity, so there wasn't anything for me today other than make sure I was still meeting my musts, which I am doing an awesome job at. I know it's only been 4 days, but I'm KILLING it.
- I'm only spending money on my necessities.
- I'm talking to God more.
- I'm writing down something I'm thankful for every night.
- I'm reading almost every night. :(
- I still haven't had any fast food. (most surprising)
- I'm donating all of my possessions that aren't necessary (my definition of necessary in this instance is a little loose - I'm keeping my straightener, but getting rid of my two backups).
- I haven't been getting on social media around other people besides my co-workers. It's a long day at work with no Insta stalking.
- Lastly, this week I learned how to make a rue, and how to make a selfie board.
It's now eight o'clock. I've had dinner, a glass of milk, I've done all my musts and I'm ready for bed. Pretty sure this is adulthood. Winning.
