What’s In My Bag? (Jan. 2012)

This is definitely a photo I NEVER wanted to take.
Well….this is what happens when I get terribly bored and drunk 🙂 I guess, there’s a voyeuristic touch to looking at other people’s belongings…and I have to admit that I’m kind of fascinated by it too sometimes. Of course it’s that kind of photo I’d call a total internet cliché but it also shows how much our attitude towards things changes because of the anonymity of the world wide web. Would you let other people have a look into your bag, just for fun, when they would ask you while standing next to you, waiting for a free Chip and PIN at the supermarket? Of course not.

So why do we think it’s alright to show off all the contents of our bags on the internet for everyone to see?

Books are like movies, or music….for me, they are potentially triggering and therefore dangerous.
And nevertheless, I find myself reading books, or watching movies, of which I know are not really good for my general state of mind.
Maybe it’s the subliminal urge to keep on holding onto something that’s been a part of you for such a long time, maybe it’s the need to know that you’re not alone with those struggles you gotta face on a daily basis….. Continue reading
