If I Was An Action Figure My Accessories Would Be
I started off thinking about possessions I will always have in one form or another. I wasn't comfortable thinking of material possessions as part of my personal 'brand' or have them define me as a person. G.I. Joe action figures (and other toys of that era) often came with little accessories; e.g. the Navy SEAL came with scuba gear for underwater missions. So if I was an action figure (or even a doll), here's what I would come included in the package (or available for separate purchase)...
1. Waterproof Digital Watch
I like knowing what time it is. I've worn a digital watch at all times - including showers, baths and swimming - since I was probably 12 years old.
2. Jacket Style Hooded Sweatshirt
I love hoodies, and I prefer ones that zip up the middle as opposed to pull-overs that mess up my hair when I put them on.
3. Crossover with AWD
I like having storage capacity but I don't want to drive anything too big or pay too much at the pumps. I also swear by AWD in snowy weather.
Sure, we are all stuck to our phones, but I can remember going running with my Palm Treo which could play MP3s and getting a call and the caller wondered why I was out of breath.
5. Blue Jeans
What I prefer to wear (along with the aforementioned hoodie).
Obviously, I used to use backpacks for school, but later the idea of being a working man made briefcases or shoulder-slung messenger bags more appealing. Backpacks are just better ergonomically and I can keep my hands more free than any other solution, so even for business meetings, I'm not shy about showing up with a backpack that has my notebook and laptop in it.
Winter is a big part of living in Canada, and skiing is how I get through it.
My main work tool and a big part of my hobby/play time too.
I own 3 bikes but I don't seem to find as much time to ride as I used to, but still, cycling in one form or another has long been a big part of my lifestyle.
10. Notebook - Bullet Journal
I can see over a dozen on the shelf next to me and that doesn't even include my current one. It's how I stay sane and track my to-do list and daily activities and thoughts/occurrences.
