Material Possessions

Throughout my years in college I have destroyed my fair share of items I would have previously thought it impossible to live without. Every year I have had to go at least a month, sometimes three, without my cell phone because of defects in the phone, drunken water damage and no money to pay the bill. It’s a real pain for about the first week.  After people realize they have to contact me another way it’s actually a huge relief.  I end up liking people not being able  to call and interrupt my naps, movies and conversations.

With my sophomore year also came the death of my first and beloved iPod. I had about six thousand songs on it at the time which were, luckily, saved on my computer but I had no way to listen to them in the car.  I was stuck with my old c.d.’s for over a year which were very limited by comparison.  This was probably the hardest material possession to deal without because I love music, but obviously I survived.  I even got  a newer, bigger iPod for Christmas this year!

Fall semester this year my laptop just died on me.  I didn’t have my own computer the first four month of the semester.  It wasn’t so bad because my lovely roommate let me borrow hers whenever I needed one.  She was awesome about it, but I hated asking all the time.

The only thing I can honestly say I wouldn’t be able to live without it my car.  To me, my car is my freedom.  It allows me to go basically wherever I need to, whenever I need to.  I’m not the type of person that likes to stay in one place for very long.  I like knowing that I can hop in my car and go anytime I so desire.  I will hopefully never have to find out what it’s like to deal without a car, especially since my home town is five hours away, but if I do I’m sure I’ll find a way to deal with that too.
