Considering a /maybe trial run/ of ramping up blog posts here again. I'm meandering through budget type books and minimalism stuff, which seems to be having a more/less decent effect on my approach to my life/style i guess. I've been keeping up a fairly daily habit of taoistic ruminations, and, not to sound too weird, I'm kinda feeling a bit more at home and natural in my skin and surroundings. Here's a current focal point in my bedroom which has been having a good influence on letting go of/ donating things, as well as processing and taking care of items (tasks, like):
Within past week, I've donated some tech gadgets, such as: old webcam, old ps/2 kb I don't suppose I'll ever need again. An old nook hd+ tablet that I had rooted and had cyanogenmod (think vanilla android) working on, and factory reset, for another owner to enjoy hopefully. Mouse, I really don't need 2 spares, so... I did destroy one tablet I got frustrated while attempting to wipe (it wasn't charging, surge accidentally was switched off, need be more mindful!). Gave a foldable bt kb to my dad. I guess that's a close enough summary of some cleaning out stuffish.
I had done a little pen and ink (nibs and ink bottle) sketch somewhat recently, And I started off this new space by adding some color, with water color pencils. I still have yet to see what adding some water may finish it off like.
Now that I look at this style, its a common style I had used during some crazy/rough patches in college, tho revived in a different tenor. I like the idea of something like a flower/bud sort of energy bursting through something rough like rocky/ground, all the while adorned with some nasty sharp thorns. I think it may represent... actually, perhaps more labels would hinder the process at this point.
Well, this post was neat on my end. Came together via a budget tablet (amazon fire tablet, dang if I didn't already get rid of an iPad Air! hehe) I had the pics on my older /still nice/ canon camera. For the picture transfer tho, my camera was still loaded with a full sized sd card, which won't play with my tablet so much. But I discovered an older mini usb port on my camera. And at some point in my consumerism idealistic haze, I was trying to connect a ps3 controller (ds3) to my cell phone, and had a very short, 6 inch OTG cable (mini to micro usb), which, aHa, fit the physical components of a connection between tablet and camera. And lo and behold, I found the cable, and it did in fact work. I ramble, but this is the sort of techy junk that can entertain my brain at times.
So, I dunno how far I may be interested to follow this tao flavoured minimalist path. But no matter, whether I get rid of more stuff, or just start buying less, or some reasonable lifestyle updates at any rate... I'll at least be able to keep up the blog posts with a budget tablet, if at that extreme, I ever find myself without a pc to harness.
Ok, so where does such a post fit on this blog :P
*rummages through frayed threads* erm, looks like this post is worth a new thread, so many threads! :x
till next time, keep up the good fight, fellers
