22. That sounds like me.

I truly hate shopping of most sorts and have for most of my life. It seems such a waste of one's life to wander around a store looking at crap you can live without. If I actually need something like toothpaste, food, things that are necessities, I have a way of talking myself out of going until I'm one day away from being out of something. Then when I go to the store I try not to look at most of the people or I'll find myself muttering under my breath ugly things like how they're loading up their carts with lousy food choices, how they're spending twenty minutes deciding which toothpaste to buy as if it matters, etc.

And yes, like you I'm practically across the street from a Target and other stores. I am not antisocial or anywhere near agoraphobic, I just hate the idea of wasting my life away enclosed in a store with other people I don't know when I could be outside in nature or home reading a good book, cooking a good meal, listening to good music, chatting on the phone with a friend.

I can relate to your statement of there's just so little I want any more. I have everything I need in life and I need very little to be content.
