I spent most of my young adult years in the 2010s. During this time, I was in college, got my first full time jobs, and moved across the country. I was naive, impressionable, and followed many trends.
This time period was an era when minimalism was on the rise. There are blogs and YouTube channels dedicated to the concept, and it felt like the idea was reflected in many forms of media. On a surface level, I thought this sounded nice. I hate clutter, and I’d love to be able to move my life from city to city in just a bag or two.
