So now what?

This is the question I ask myself quite frequently. What do I want to do?

What about my stuff?
Well, I have reached a plateau with my stuff in storage. Everything that is left will require a conscience effort to get rid of. I am prepared to let go of my DVD collection but only after I transfer it to an external hard drive, this should be my next project. This will eliminate three boxes (except for the special collections or shows), will post the rest on Craigslist.

I've removed two buckets and some cleaning supplies, hoping to give them to a friend who has a house. Also getting rid of misc spices and other cooking liquids.
I've re-posted the mattress, vacuum and woodworking tools on craigslist. Hope they sell soon, I am tired of seeing them.

Ive got a trolly jack and axle stands, need to use them to adjust rear brakes and do a fluid flush but need to get rid of them as well.

The nice sears drill I bought needs a part to fix the chuck, if I buy the parts to fix it I could sell the drill but this assumes I can actually get the parts I need.
**update** Parts were available and I purchased them. I am amazed that a consumer product can even be repaired these days.

What about my job?
Yesterday I received an email from a friend about a full time photography position in the Virgin Islands. I am so tempted to just up and leave. I don't know what is really holding me back, I could point to my financial plan and say that I am not ready but money is just a tool. I could point to my stuff and say that it takes work to move but that is just an excuse for my laziness in getting rid of it all.
I need my job to allow me to exercise my creativity and control but also improve my life in some aspect. Every day right now feels like another day wasted in my short life span, no new life skills - just paychecks.

What Now?
