First of all, I forgot my phone charger at home when I spent time in Moscow for the Fourth of July. This meant that my cellphone died and it made it rather difficult to communicate with our friends over the weekend.
Secondly, I dropped my IPhone. Normally, this would be no big deal. Unfortunately, I broke the glass on the hard cobblestone of Park Pobedi (Victory Park) in Moscow. It’s still functioning, but the front camera can’t take photos as well, and it’s a rather aesthetically ugly item now.

Lastly, since bad things come in threes, I also lost my monthly bus pass today. It was nice to flash that card instead of scourging for change on public transport. But now that’s gone. Back to being a normal civilian.
But I jest. Looking back, these lost things mean nothing. Sure, I definitely need to be more mindful with things in my hand. However, I classify this as first-world problems. My troubles are small trifles, because these objects can be recharged, fixed and found (bought once more). I’ve got to get over that materialist mindset. Instead, I should spend more time just enjoying people and the settings. This is what I’m promising myself for the next five remaining weeks.
