The Art Of Discarding – A Book I’m Reading


I hope everyone had a safe and fun #canadaday weekend. my weekend went well and I was able to enjoy myself.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted about the books ive been reading. at the moment im reading 3 new ones I picked up the other week when I was at #chapters.

I came across this book called ‘the art of discarding’. im almost finished it and so far its been a pretty good read. it basically breaks down some strategies on getting rid of unnecessary items within your home. did you know that there is 300,000 items in the average (american) home?! that’s a lot of things!

my friends would be able to tell you that im a pretty organized person in general. I personally don’t like a lot of clutter and over the last couple months ive challenged myself to start removing more items from my home that i havent used in 3-6 months. I try to apply the ‘3-6 month’ idea to clothing items. if I havent worn something within that time span, I probably don’t need to have it taking up space.

I also try to apply some of these rules and ideas to my ‘dj life’. im constantly going through and organizing my music library. im always coming across songs that I will never play. ive only been keeping music that I like and that is relative to the events I play. I couldn’t think of any real reason for me keeping my ‘progressive drum and bass’ folder anymore (ha!).

all in all, I do find cluttering satisfying to some extent and I would recommend that you try it every now and again.

New Mix: Bump & Grind R&B Mix (July Edition)

Upcoming Event: The Jam (Saturday, June 3rd)

Just wanted to make a little post about The Jam event happening this Saturday (June 3rd) inside The Seahorse.

I’m going to start posting more about my upcoming events via this website as purchasing advertisements with Facebook has been quite hard to do the last couple weeks. They have a really flawed system for approving advertisements for events as of recently. It kind of sucks but what can you do? *Kanye Shrug

Anyhoo, you know the deal. If you are in Halifax, Nova Scotia this weekend, come out to The Seahorse this Saturday. It’s always a good time!

I’ve posted the event information below. Cheers!
