Where Have I been?

Where have I been? Nowhere, really. And am I a minimalist yet?

Yeah, pretty much.

I went missing from this blog for over a year, but I'll admit I don't really have a whole lot to report back. At least I don't think I do. I did keep up with moving towards a more minimalist lifestyle, and am very happy with how I've progressed over the past year. My life feels lighter and cleaner with less distractions.

I've gotten rid of so much of stuff, most of it the first couple of months. And I don't miss any of it. Well, except that one time I needed a can opener and realized I had taken mine to goodwill. Did I replace it? Nope. I borrowed one from the local pizza place for a few minutes and after that decided not to buy anything that comes in a can anymore.

Along with ridding my life of unnecessary clutter, I've also done a lot of research on zero-waste and how much trash we are producing, especially in the U.S. So, I've been trying to do my part to reduce my waste. I don't aspire to be zero-waste, but I definitely have taken a lot of tips and tricks from those who do live that particular lifestyle. Currently, I've gotten down to taking my trash out less than twice a month, and it's a small can. It may not seem like much, but I'm proud of my efforts.

I know I still have a ways to go, with both my minimalist journey and creating less waste but I'm okay with that. Because change takes time, and every little bit helps.

Oh yeah, and my eyebrows still haven't grown back yet.
