Stuffing shyt into a suitcase

Random Observation/Comment #139: For this Euro-trip, I’ve been planning my necessities since October.  My list on the exact set of clothes and underwear I’ll be bringing has not changed in quite some time.  This being said, I’ve started wearing the “less favored” clothes (including underwear) these past 4 months.  These adjustments to my fashion-sense have brought me closer to my...
