I am glad that I live in this century. I would not want the harder life of my grandparents, and in this case, their grandparents. That's a very long time ago, and something tells me, it was much more work than I'm used to.
I think a simple life sounds wonderful. What do we need all this STUFF for anyway?
I think because we are advertised to heavily, it pushes us to increase our greed.
Also a lot of stuff is like a collection, where you try to complement things. Like I have a house and having a living room would be useful so another room is added. Or I have a dining set but should have a fancy dining set for when guests come over, or a special picnic set for when we eat by the pool. Or I have a computer so need a printer to go along with it.
Then there are real collection things. Have a Mac by and Ipod. Then buy their phone. Then their tablet. That way all you stuff matches.
Be Cool Stay in School!
Next year I'm trying for a summer internship at Stark Industries.
