Glasses w/Blue Light-Blocking Lens
FiiO M5 + FiiO FH5
Car + House Keys
Glasses, I wear at work. No prescription, just blue light-blocking and tinted slightly auburn. IDK whether the blue light-blocking lenses work, but the auburn tint seems to make white light and Light Mode pages considerably easier on the eyes. (If you’re pixel-peeping, yes, those lenses are slightly cracked. I have zero idea how they cracked, tho. I’m usually very careful not to subject my glasses – and other fragile things especially prone to shattering in my eyes – to blunt force trauma.)
Victorinox Huntsman started off as 50% practical purchase, and 50% copying parental habits (Mother used to keep a Victorinox in her car, I later found out it was bought with credit card reward points). Found it handy during my college days, when I needed a sharp blade or a pair of scissors in my lab classes. Nowadays, it’s mostly used for switch modding. Tweezers are infinitely helpful (also the only pair in the house, lol), smol scissors are waaay easier to handle and waaay sharper compared to hand-sized scissors, and the small blade pops out every so often when I need to fit things between crevices.
FiiO M5 + FiiO FH5, because I need music in my ears and in my brain if I’m working or outside on my lonesome (e.g. grocery shopping). I’d probably quite literally go mad with my own thoughts if I didn’t have something auditory to focus my brain on, during the quiet moments. The silence is deafening.
Casio BGA152-7B1 is a digital-analog watch hybrid? Is water-resistant, and has DST, other time zones, standard timer/stopwatch features built-in, and that’s all I need. I love it when a thing has all the functionality I want and none of the bloat.
- Still not totally down with smartwatches. Fitness trackers, calendar reminders, GPS, etc. are things very not essential to my lifestyle, and bloat that I can do without. And touchscreen? Eughhh… Also, uncertain how water-resistant smartwatches are, and how often they need charging, and whether the risk of malfunctioning due to water-related or blunt force trauma incidents outweighs the smol, very expensive, very non-essential quality-of-life additions they offer.
Uh, I drive a Benz, I guess.
Not pictured is the hair band I carry around my right wrist at all times, if my hair isn’t currently tied up. Copied that habit from Ichiki Umi (from Kindred Spirits on the Roof, Image: Middle Girl).
Den’s Smexy Knaf + Smexy Over-Engineered Titanium Carabiner
Saving the carabiner for whenever I need something indestructible.
I don’t trust myself not to lose it, if I use it for petty everyday things.
Cast Cobalt 6 Higonokami by D Rocket Design
According to Boogle, Higonokami knives spawned from the decline of samurai (and subsequently, swords) in the late Meiji Era. Large weapons were also outlawed, so pocket mini-sword knives grew in popularity.
