Giving it all away.

Posted: February 9, 2010 in Uncategorized

All my stuff – clothes, books, shoes, miscellaneous blah – everything but a few Ts, jeans and a pair of flats, is hereby up for grabs.
EVEN THE CONVERSE SNEAKERS, MAKS?
Even the converse sneakers.
Sashi‘s already called dibs on the cam and Sabby on the phone.

Reactions to this declaration of ‘EVERYTHING I OWN IS URS IF U WANT K’ has ranged from ‘WTF I WANT YER SHOES’ and ‘you fucking hippy!’
Friends are demanding explanations and parents are squinting at me suspiciously and aunties are facepalming.

Why is everyone so appalled and surprised and nnnnggg-ey over the idea of giving all your things away?
“But it’s eeeeverything! It’s all your awesome, awesome stuuuuff! What will you do without themmm! O_O” said flabbergastedlady.
They’re just thingz, stfu.
I just woke up two days ago, and realized that. And that although they’re all very nice and awl, I don’t need or RLY want any of it.

Mum offered to take me on a shopping spree today, cuz yes, today marks the 20th year of my tyrannical existence on earth- and I said, no that’s okai.
In December my reaction would have approximately been, ‘YES PLS I KILL U IF U DUN TAKE ME NAO THX.’ Needless to say, mum is now still eyeing me suspiciously from across the hall.

It’s sorta freeing and I somehow feel.. lighter, not having thingz to obsess about and needing nothing but good company and music and a coupla fun memories. And notwantingsobad that absurdly expensive pair of blah in the shop window.
I dunno what happened but it happened.
Is it the sleep deprivation talking? Have I found enlightenment? Am I turning into a tree hugging hippy (O NOEZ)?
No idea. But it feels good.

    Wow… just wow!I admire and agree with the sentiment… though there are a few things I would never give up.Really it's just something I realized ages ago, but sometimes seriously 'less is more'. Can't really explain it.
