As a paratrooper I learned I could live without quite a bit. My home has no TV or internet, I check my Facebook roughly once a week or less, and frequently ignore texts in favor of phone or face to face conversation. When I got out of the Army I owned clothes, a boiling pot, sauce pan, spatula, four cups, a snowboard, old military stuff, and important documents. Not even a bed. This isn't some philosophical choice or some bullshit statement on consumerism either. I love shit, I just don't feel an overwhelming urge to get any of it. And I'm not a Luddite either. Prior to joining the military I held a Cisco certification and a job doing network admin for a high school. I'm actually quite fond of computers.
