When we got married, my husband and I made a goal to take at least two trips each year. One travel/ educational trip, and one relaxing beach vacation. This is the travel trip of 2018. We packed for Japan very minimally. We made and remade lists of items to bring for the 10 days so we wouldn’t have to check any luggage. We’re going from city to city so opted for backpacks instead of suitcases. We just couldn’t picture us rolling suitcases through this country. So far the clothes we have packed have served their purpose by keeping us warm and comfortable. Looking at all the locals and tourists around us, I can’t help but feel underdressed. It seems everyone around (including the street performers!) are dressed in nice suits, heels, coats etc. It would be nice to have pretty pictures in nice clothes while we’re here but that’s not the purpose of this trip. We came here seeking adventure, and couldn’t cover half the ground wearing heels. Is there a happy middle between backpacker and fashionista? I’ll work on that one. For now, I’ll keep counting my blessings: we’re in Japan, we’re comfortable, we have seen so much in the past two days, and we have so much more to learn and experience while we’re here. How do you travel?
Ok am I missing something here? Why were my listings removed. The description just has the size and condition as “worn with stains and tears good for a project to bring them back to life”. I listed other brands in the same condition but those were not removed. Looks like I’ll be calling eBay today.
Stare - really stare - into the womb of creation, and it will be impossible to dedicate your life to mindless accumulation. When you see the aurora, the only logical choice you can make is to spend the rest of your life seeking the sublime. - Ken Ilgunas
One of my worst fears is living a mediocre life. Yet I need to face my smaller fears by getting out of my comfort zone if I’m ever going to live life to its fullest. Life is not about what you buy, where you live, or where you work. How do YOU escape mediocrity?
This morning was a choice of remaining in the home and listing, or going out for a run THEN listing. Needless to say, we chose to run to the farmers, have some lunch, then run back home to list. I often struggle between working out and getting work done. I keep telling myself that working out will give me more energy resulting in more work getting done. Now if only my voice would imprint that into my brain. What’s your listing goal for today?
Have you noticed the new eBay shipping policy settings? I think it’s super cool and will make listing quicker. My only issue is that it has so many policies from my current listings which are pretty much the same. Gotta figure out how to narrow this list without going through every single listing
Meanwhile in other news - there’s a glare on my screen ♀️ the sun keeps popping in and out from behind the clouds.
Just curious- have you invested in any cryptocurrencies? This is my Coinbase account. I invested $250 in Etherium on December 25th. I now have $435. Excited to see what happens with this. Which currency are you interested in?
