Eyebrows


I’m growing my eyebrows out. That’s basically code for my eyebrows look like shit.

Seriously.

But I’m sticking it out, because not only do I want to live a life with less stuff, I also want to live a life where I don’t have to worry about the upkeep of trivial things. Like my eyebrows.

 A minimalist beauty routine.

Now if only these stubborn eyebrow hairs would actually grow back. I guess after 14-15 years of plucking and shaving, they thought they were doing me a favor. Welp.

I’m open to any suggestions on how to get my eyebrow hairs to come back home. Enlighten me young fleeky eyebrow gurus.

I Think I'm Getting Dumber

I seriously feel like I’ve gotten dumber and I blame YouTube. I need to (and want to) start reading again but I don't want to bring books back into my home after donating my old collection. So, the Kindle app is going to be my new best friend. I’ve read via the app before, but my iPad 4 is too heavy for comfortable reading, which is why I stopped.

But then I became dumb. And I don’t want to be dumb.

So I bought a new iPad. A Mini 3. I know, right. But I’m going somewhere with this. Maybe. I did ask myself if I really needed a new iPad, and the answer was yes. I’m not going to explain why, just know that it was yes. But to allow myself to purchase it, I did tell myself I had to get rid of a few things. 1 in 1+ out.

I used the Amazon Trade-In Program and was able to trade-in my old iPad, PS3 (never use it), and an old iPod (also, never use it) + a few other small things (yep, didn’t use them either). Everything I traded-in resulted in a $470 value, so it pretty much paid for the new device.

I guess all that was to say...

I bought a new iPad.

I'm Not a Candle Person



I’m the type of person that thinks candles are more trouble then they’re worth. Which probably says something about me, because how hard is it really to burn a candle? Not very.

And yeah, my house probably does smell like dog, but I still don’t have time to just be out here burning candles.

So when I was cleaning out my storage closet and came across a bucket filled with 70+ tealight candles, I thought to myself, "self, who bought all these and why?"

But I knew that it was me.

And I knew exactly why. Because they were cheap. But you know what would have been even cheaper? It’s if I would’ve said “self, stop playing, you know you don’t even like candles like that.

But I didn’t.

What I did do was buy several packs of them + a bucket to display them in… in the closet, where nobody sees them.

And this is exactly why I’m becoming a minimalist.
