So I always try to go minimalist!
And while I can't claim I always get to do it, I have my ups and downs which assures me I am on the track.
One of the hallmarks of following an ideology or a certain notion is, I suppose, INTEGRITY!
Sadly enough, I can't find a proper translation for that word in Arabic, I am afraid this has to do with our double-faced culture ;)
I am struggling with that minimalism issue, I always think vastly before buying something if I really want it, whether I can make do without it. If the answer is yes, I get that thing at its most basic and uncomplicated primitive form.
A couple of months ago, my mobile phone went nuts, I can't make calls nor read SMS's, and here's the thing, we need phones just to make and receive calls and to text, that's it!
I went ahead and purchased a used Nokia 1280 black from a capitalist friend who was buying a silly new iPhone, poor you, friend ;)
I am really contented with my new phone and proud of the things it can't do; it doesn't have a camera nor can it log on to the internet nor anything fancy actually.
It's a phone and symbolizes the integrity I am struggling with :)
