Minimalism and Owning Less: Part II

10 Sep

Back on the 4th of July I wrote some thoughts on minimalism and owning less. Basically I want to get rid of as much stuff as possible that doesn’t really provide any value in my life. A simple enough proposition, right? That was slightly over 2 months and damn if I still don’t seem to […]

26 Jul

SO I’m thrilled to say I saw INCEPTION tonight for my 30th birthday at IMAX. Verdict? It was pretty awesome.

17 Aug

  The nontheistic aspect of Buddhism intrigues me because I have a hard time identifying with anything that strikes of theism.
