You are on point here.
Right now my possessions boil down to:
- Laptop (and a just-in-case netbook),
- Six changes of normal clothes, two changes of training clothes, two towels, suit and pyjama,
- Fork, knife, three spoons, three cups, coffee pot, pan, pot, and some food containers for refrigeration.
- Two blankets and travel backpack,
- Wristwatch, dynamo powered flashlight and a multitool,
- Soldering iron and what my roommate calls 'electronics crap' in boxes,
- Soap, shampoo, floss, toothbrush, paste and some other hygiene shit,
- Bank documents, passport and some money in a box,
- Bunch of notebooks, pendrives, hdds and pencils,
- Box of books, most of which are from library.
Add some more clothes, bed and books I have in my parents home and that's literally everything I own.
Timewise, aside of doing laundry, upkeep is almost nonexistent. Evacuation because it's 'that time of the century' for Russia? No problem, I'll just put it all on my back, as most of it is already in the backpack, and leave luxuries like suit, soldering iron and synthesizer behind. Burglary? I can replace most of the shit I own in under three months with my scholarship (or instantly with my savings), although it would be a bummer if my data got stolen. Most of the stress sources are gone. It will likely change when I'll graduate, get a job and home… but for next few years I can concentrate on what I have to do, not what I own.
I kinda don't wish to change that after seeing some of my older friends, but time will tell.
