Every year I attempt to go through my Second Life
inventory in the hope that it actually works out for me. I really do
want to get rid of the 7,000+ items I have after eight years in the game (my game-birthday is on May 26th!), but it's such a daunting task. Where do you start? Is organization really even needed? Well, yes it is, from what I have heard. Everyone is running in-world carrying endless pockets filled with everything possible, and that's going to cause some lag and effort on the server's part.
Also, I have an obsession with minimizing my life. I hate physical stuff. It takes up room, collects dust, and just sits there. Sure, I maintain all of my art if I can and some other important items like pictures and cute little knick-knacks, but otherwise, if I don't use it, it gets tossed, sold, or set on the curb for the junk-people to grab.
I feel the same way about Second Life
. There's a mental burden that years of junk presses onto someone, digital representation or not. It's no wonder those people in that Hoarders
show look so down; it's a hard life to lose the ability to throw anything away, ever.
I am making a stand, slowly. I am going to get this inventory under control by coming up with some ideas to help me along.
