[Vacuum] The Most Important Things  
If a catastrophe struck and you had to leave your home in a hurry (and never return), what items would you grab in your last ten minutes, and why?

     I'm only a simpleton and I can't afford to buy everything I want. So I guess I'll grab the most expensive items I have. Oh! And of course, I need food too. Now that I think about it, it seems impossible to grab my stuff and then run over to the refrigerator to get food when there is a catastrophe. Well, that's okay! That's why I never stop my routine of running when I have free time! I'm sure I can handle it because I am mighty Hihara! 

     But if I really can't afford to grab all those I'd probably get my trumpet, school and sports stuff first. My trumpet has been my friend since way before. I can't possibly give it up. It provides colour to my life. I'm sure all musicians throughout the world will understand how I feel. The trumpet's music has been a part of my whole being ever since I laid my hands on it. Without it, I guarantee that there will be a huge hole in my life. Besides, it would cost me to buy a new trumpet too! Maybe I should prepare my trumpet and all the stuff that goes with it later. I'd grab my school items because they would cost me too if I lost them and I'm already getting bad grades as it is. What if I lose those things? I'd definitely fail. To achieve my dreams, I have to work hard on my academics. My sports stuff are very important too. They are there for when I have free time and when I hang out with my friends. They also help relieve stress, like my trumpet. I can't imagine living without them. Sports are an important leisure activity. It would be expensive to buy them again too. 

     About the food, I really wish I can get some. You never know what kind of catastrophe there is. What if there would be no more food left after the catastrophe? What would happen to me? I'd suffer and then die! That can't be! I never thought it would be this hard to choose which things I'd grab first. Oh, I know! It wouldn't be hard if I pack everything now! I will be ready if anything happens. It's a great idea, right? I better start now then!
 
 
I'm actually kind of: cheerfulcheerful

I suggest canned goods so they don't spoil easily.

I have my own emergency pack in case of--well, emergencies.
Hihara Kazuki: im the king lensweetooth12 on March 31st, 2010 09:08 am (UTC)
Canned goods, eh? Not a bad idea! Thanks Tsukimori!

*chuckles*

You do? I never thought you'd keep something like that! But then again, that's great. We never know what might happen, ne?
Tsukimori Len: turnawayseisoprodigy on March 31st, 2010 09:27 am (UTC)
Emergency packs are important that way. Also First Aid kits. I have a small kit I carry around.

*was not sure why he's even sharing this*
*determines that it's probably harmless, considering it's Hihara he's talking to*

If it pleases sempai, I could help him with his emergency pack.
Hihara Kazuki: winkingsweetooth12 on March 31st, 2010 09:32 am (UTC)
Whoah. I never knew you were always this prepared! That's amazing!

I'd be happy if you would help me! *grins* *obviously happy* So..Let's start with food first?

Tsukimori Len: turnawayseisoprodigy on March 31st, 2010 09:40 am (UTC)
*brushes off the compliment*

Actually, sempai--food comes second to the last when preparing your emergency pack.

*gathers thoughts on how to explain further*
Hihara Kazuki: what?sweetooth12 on March 31st, 2010 09:56 am (UTC)
Really?? And I was so excited to prepare food.

*sighs*

Oh, well! What should we prepare first then? *smiles*

*is actually very excited to make the emergency pack*
Tsukimori Lenseisoprodigy on March 31st, 2010 10:06 am (UTC)
*is a bit puzzled with Hihara's initiative*
*takes this as a good sign nevertheless*

First of all, Hihara-sempai, you must first make sure that your emergency pack would be multi-purposed and that it would meet your needs in case of whatever emergency: such as fire hazards, earthquakes and so forth.

You have to determine the kind of equipment or luggage bag to use. It should be big enough to accomodate many things but it shouldn't be stuffed with unimportant things, however. All you have to do is bring what is necessary foremost.

So what do you consider important things in your households, particularly in your room? The trumpet is a given, of course. What else?

*is puzzled with his sudden insistence on helping*
Hihara Kazuki: contemplatesweetooth12 on March 31st, 2010 10:19 am (UTC)
Ah, is that so? I wonder if I have a bag big enough for that. *smiles awkwardly* Oh! I have this bag I often use when I play basketball with my friends. I think it's big enough. *grins*

*starts to think really hard* *counts the important things with his fingers as he narrates them*

My books and notes are important. My sports stuff, music sheets and CDs, materials to keep the trumpet as it is..Clothes, maybe? There are so many things I need to bring! *sighs in defeat*

I don't think we have much of things to prevent disasters here at home. Maybe we should go shop for those?
Tsukimori Len: scoffsseisoprodigy on March 31st, 2010 10:24 am (UTC)
*crosses arms*
*tries to be more patient*

And this bag you use for basketball, how wide is it? Do you think it can store enough clothes, nutritional supplements and the likes?

*watches him counting his fingers; is a bit amused by this*

Shop? Well--if you don't mind me asking, sempai--how much is your budget? If you want to buy a new bag then I suggest you first check on the prices of the first three bag options you have and---*sighs*

*realizes he's getting ahead of himself*

Okay. What are these "sport stuff"? And how thick are the music sheets? Can you put them inside a plastic folder? The first rule in emergency packing is to minimalize anything as much as they can be minimalized.
Hihara Kazuki: happysweetooth12 on March 31st, 2010 10:39 am (UTC)
Ah, now that you mention it..Maybe it can store some of those but it can't accomodate them all. *grins* Maybe two or three bags?

Um..I've only got about 1500 yen, I guess. Maybe buying a bigger bag would be better than using two to three of my old bags?

My sports stuff are my rubber shoes, basketball, clothes and the like. Yeah, it's possible to put the music sheets on a plastic folder. *grins* But I guess we have to go buy that one too.

*is really amazed and thankful to Tsukimori* I never knew you had this side of you, but I'm happy knowing about it. *smiles*
Tsukimori Len: scoffsseisoprodigy on March 31st, 2010 10:49 am (UTC)
*is actually not pleased about the "two or three bags" comment*

Minimalize, sempai. Do not forget.

*ignores his remark about being happy*
*finds it a hard time already to make elaborations*

Sempai, if you don't mind, I would like to show you how to proceed on an emergency pack. I have an extra luggage bag back at home. We don't have to do it now, but I can help you fit those things you consider important inside the said bag. It's a lot harder than what I'm explaining and I hope you'll pay a lot of attention as I help you prepare it.
Hihara Kazuki: happysweetooth12 on March 31st, 2010 11:00 am (UTC)
Ah, yeah. *chuckles* I guess I still have a lot to learn from you. *grins and pats Tsukimori's back*

Wow, that's so nice of you! Thanks! That will help me save up on money too.

Let's do it now! *is now really excited* I haven't been to Tsukimori's house in a really long time!

Don't worry, I swear that I'll pay attention and remember everything you say! *grins*

Tsukimori Len: catchme?seisoprodigy on March 31st, 2010 11:07 am (UTC)
*tries not to cringe as Hihara pats his back*

You don't need to learn anything from me, sempai. I'm just pleased that I could help you with something like this. and that you're actually taking me seriously this time

*hesitates when he remembers the last time Hihara visited his place*

To self: I suppose I'm gonna have to feed him too.

Very well then.

*starts heading out and expects Hihara to follow him*
Hihara Kazuki: umsweetooth12 on March 31st, 2010 11:13 am (UTC)
*laughs* You're a really humble person, aren't you? *smiles* Thanks for your help then.

*grins and merrily follows Tsukimori without saying a word*

*on the way to Tsukimori's house, Hihara decides to make conversation*

So, are your parents home right now? *smiles*
Tsukimori Len: calmseisoprodigy on March 31st, 2010 11:18 am (UTC)
*brushes off the compliment again and just keeps walking*

No, they're not in the country right now. My grandparents are taking a nap by this hour or so. With that in mind, I ask for you to be quiet while we walk around the house.

*after a few more minutes and a couple of turns, they arrive at Tsukimori's house*

*inserts key on gate*
*pries it open*
*waits for Hihara to get in*
