How to Sell All of Your Worldly Possessions

Tempus Fugit
Remember how I said I was going to South Korea? Yeah, that's still a thing, and this year is quickly evaporating right in front of my very eyes. Seriously, where has this year gone? IT'S ALREADY AUGUST! I'm freakin' out, man!

Apologies. Minor freak out moment as a result of many mounting tasks I must "complete by [insert quickly approaching time limit here] date" start to pile upon one another, growing exponentially each passing day.

I'm not going to take anything with me to South Korea short of clothes to get me through the Winter and into Spring plus the basic necessities, so everything else has to go. All of my old clothes, donated. All of my furniture, gone. All of my books (my heart breaks at the thought), donated and sold.

Everything must go.

SIDE NOTE: Not all of the books are going to go. Here's the plan: I will be saving all of my classic literature (e.g. Shakespeare collection, Sherlock Holmes, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Fahrenheit 451, etc.) and will be shipping that to myself once I move to South Korea. I will have a little reading nook / library in my classroom designated for English literature should any of my students be interested in working on their English reading skills while taking a break at school or at home. There will be, of course, a check-out process, and they'll have to return it once a certain time period has come to an end, but I think it's a pretty good idea.

At any rate, I'm reaching out to my friends over Facebook in the upcoming weeks to sell all of my furniture (thankfully, I have several friends right now who are looking to furnish their homes due to their plans to move and whatnot), and anything else will be sold via craigslist.

I have a month to get rid of everything because I'll be moving in with my parents by September 1st (more on that at a later date) in order to save money and such prior to my move. It'll be rough, but I'm sure I'll be able to find homes for everything.

Wish me luck!

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things" What things are purple? Make a list. Eggplants One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below) Bruises (sometimes) a REALLY beautiful sunset Elizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?) Barney (I love you, you love me...) Grapes Lavendar Orchids Amethyst Cabbage (sometimes) Lots of different birds Plums Violets Onions ROYGBI V That's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome. Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley: Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, an
