I probably started with watches as part of my journey to acquire some basic tools, skills and habits that would (hopefully) make me a more reliable person for myself and those I care for.
As with folding knifes and other EDC-stuff, I became obsessed with watches. I have spendt tons of time and money to figure out what I like and what I need, just to find that I have circled back to where I started in many ways.
I'm back to many of the same brands and simplicity that I had at the start. Maybe it wasn't a waste of time? Maybe I needed to do it that way to find out that I didn't need a Monster G-Shock with thousands of functions, a Rambo Knife of a folding knife combined with a fountain pen 😅
I think I have figured out what I need. So being the reliable adult I have tried to become, I should be able let it go and just enjoy and use the awesome stuff I actually have acquired through this journey?
I probably would need to stop sitting in here comparing my toys with the other boys then, huh? Well, shit...
