1. Between being a grad student now and an analyst for a credit card company till February, I have been unemployed.
2. I'm trying to cut down my consumerist inclinations as much as possible, and trying to be more of a minimalist and practise a relatively frugal lifestyle. This is not entirely related to the fact that I currently survive on near-subsistent wages, only partially.
3. Though I have this hobby, I have realized that I cannot become a collector, and would not want to become one. I derive the greatest joy out of using the fragrances I have and love. However much I might like this hobby, I do not exist because of it and feel a necessity to balance out things.
4. I have some scents which I've realised I like but not love. It's better to have 10 quality scents that I love rather than a varied assortment of 30-40 bottles. I'd love to see the day when I'm able to reduce my current collection size of around 20.
