I am always moving toward a simpler way of life. There is no need to rush to the top of the pile of failure. I like to get things done as efficiently as possible. I do not see the point of doing anything if you are not actively seeking a better way to do it. I want more out of less. An old motto I used regularly was "functionality over design, simplicity over art". There is a tonne of over engineered technology out there of late that is doing nothing more than wasting your time.

One day when I was high school I bought 2 bun and cheese just to see what it felt like. On 99% of the days I could only afford to buy one but on that day I had managed to amass enough cash to buy two. Buy 2 bun and cheese was a long time dream of mind at the time but I never really got around to it until that day. I am not sure how it sprang into my head but I finally did it. Even the shop keeper was puzzled because if you buy 2 buns you probably need 2 drinks as well. Inflating your expenses in lock step with your income. But this one not that kind of day.

I returned to the safety of my class room and ate them both in full view of a small audience. If you are going to splurge you might as well splurge out in the open - I figured. I was always a meticulous saver. "Waste not, want not" was the old saying. But my love of bun and cheese compelled me into this little experiment. By the time I was done I came to the conclusion that 2 bun and cheese does not really make you twice as happy at the end of the day. It was however a memorable experience which everyone should try at some point in their life.
