#8 - Donnie Darko, EDC fruition

1 minute read

Motto: 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds

About the motto - I’m watching Donnie Darko. So you might have to take this entire post with a grain of salt.

Maybe a cinder block of salt.

Unlike Inception, I’ve never seen Donnie Darko before.

For a bit of insight as to how my brain works, I am writing this sentence an hour and a half after the previous sentence.

Donnie Darko was… interesting.

Alright, yea. Column. Okay.

So I got my EDC bag in the mail today. I like it. I got myself a nice Decepticon patch for it. It’s awesome. Visual evidence of awesomeness:


The bag itself is looking like its going to fill its intended purpose perfectly. It’s a Maxpedition Gearslinger Sitka. Very high quality. Feels very tough. Fits in all the stuff I’m including later in my Top 5. I’m pretty pumped.

Probably not as pumped as my cousin is… We went and got him a golden retriever. It was good times hanging with the brothers. Made me look forward to when I get my first dog. They are awesome.

I want to spend more time in Lawrence. I like it there.

This post was light on the entertainment value. My bad.

Top 5: Items I’ll carry in my EDC bag (ideally)

  1. Everything I’d normally carry in my pockets if I have none - Cell Phone, Wallet, Keys, Pocket Knife
  2. Cell phone charger + Headphones
  3. A waterbottle and some drink mixes (I am a big fan of crystal light)
  4. Pens, pencils, a pen-sized flashlight, and a pen-sized 4 bit screwdriver
  5. My Tablet, it’s keyboard, its charger, flash drive, other such items
