A Cardboard City

I moved to a new house. It doesn't feel like home yet, probably because all of my furniture is still in my old house, which is still on the market. I'm living out of boxes and sleeping on an air mattress. I use a tv-tray as a bedside table.

In a way, it's been nice to discover that I can survive without all my material possessions. It's a simplified existence. Without the distractions of these things, I have found more time to read and more time to be creative.

So for now, I am enjoying the minimalistic decor of my new home and relaxing in the chaos of boxes. Because one day soon my cardboard city will be gone.

Sounds like you are living a minimalist lifestyle. Some things though are required. (not my list, found on the web)

I always want to have on hand:
Clean clothes and shoes.
Good books
Alcohol
Food
A laptop with high speed internet access
A comfy place to sleep
Someway to keep warm, or cool depending on weather.
Some privacy.

I have all of the above - including internet access which was finally connected this weekend! I'm wireless and loving it!
