  • What Have I Got In My Pocket?

    December 23rd, 2013
    stuff
    I carry a lot of things around with me wherever I go. These are divided into two categories: backpack and pockets. In my pockets I keep things I really need to have with me or that I use often, high priority storage, while my backpack has the rest:

    The rightmost column goes in pockets, the second rightmost is the contents of my wallet, and everything else lives in my backpack. Full list:

    • Right Front Pocket:
      • House key
      • Multitool
      • Wallet
        • Charlie Card (MBTA subway and bus pass)
        • Library card
        • Zipcar card (never used)
        • MetroCard (MTA stored value card)
        • Health savings account card
        • Bank check card
        • Health Insurance card
        • Work credit card
        • Another MetroCard
        • Credit card
        • Dental insurance card
        • List of useful phone numbers, about a year out of date
        • Driver's license
        • Periodic table
        • Printout of MBTA shoes policy transcript and board of health letter.
        • Cash (variable, not pictured)
    • Left Front Pocket:
      • Phone
      • Handkerchief
    • Left Back Pocket:
      • Work ID badge
    • Backpack
      • Toothpaste
      • Toothbrush
      • Dental floss
      • Deodorant
      • Penny whistle
      • Caffeine pills
      • Pens
      • Headphone splitter
      • Grounded/ungrounded AC adapter
      • 1/8" TRS to dual 1/4" TS adapter
      • AC to USB adapter
      • USB to microusb/miniusb/iphone/lightning adapter
      • Superglue
      • Mandolin pick
      • Mandolin strings (there's not enough room in my mandolin case)
      • Umbrella
      • Emergency food x9 (~1300 calories)
      • Earplugs
      • Checkbook

    I'm relatively happy with this,but open to suggestions. Is there anything else that would make sense here? The biggest thing I miss is water, but it's heavy enough and available enough that I think I'm happier not carrying it by default.

    (Not pictured: clothes, glasses, things I've memorized. My backpack usually also has my laptop and sometimes its charger, but I don't think of these as being in the "always have with me" category.)

    Update 2017-09-24: last year I did one of these for Lily: r/EDCL 2/F/MA

    On the Beach

    I really like going in the water and this beach is a great place for building sand castles and boogie boarding. I also like trying to float on top of big waves. I'm not very good at it. I only float on the flat waves.
