Lifestyle Design: Chapstick Pocket Change | Sat May 7, 2022

I’ve changed my Chapstick® pocket. It turns out my Chapstick® will fall out either left or right front pocket when I’m driving. While I used to keep the lip balm in my right back, I’ve switched the left pocket.

Why the drastic change

Well, if the mouth moisturizer falls out each pocket, I’d prefer that it fall on the side where the finger-size container can more easily be recovered. As someone sitting in the driver’s seat of a left-hand drive vehicle, that side is unequivocally the left.

Lifestyle Design vs Life Tip

Also, I’d like to change the term “life tip” to “lifestyle design”. It feels trendier and more complex for the sake of sounding more complex. If the irony isn’t clear, I loathe most buzz words and terms that have to be updated, regurgitated, and eventually propagated through popular culture especially podcast and livestream lingo. All while maintaining their relative definitions.

I’m strictly changing the term for testing search engine optimization and making fun of buzz word culture.
