(The desk I wish I had)
This, that & thingy-ma-bobs.
I’ve always had so much stuff. You name it I have it. From books, to clothes, to excessive amounts of cat trinkets I received as a kid. Trust me, I’ve got it.
The worst part? I’m even worse at organising all this stuff I own. I know it’s fashionable at my age to be ‘eclectic’ regarding one’s tidiness, but sometimes my ‘eclectic’ bedroom drifts into apocalyptic…oh dear (sorry parents).
You’d think having literally everything at the tip of your fingertips is a good, but I’m not so sure. I’ve conned myself into holding on to things that may ‘one day’ be useful or would be such a shame to throw out. Well, if that’s the case, why on earth do I still have a yr 10 maths textbook when I’m a third year university student? God only knows.
It’s not even just things, it’s people and social events too. I spread myself so thin across so many different social groups and then events because of good old fomo, yet, I wake up every morning tired, feeling slightly unfulfilled and realising I still can’t keep up with 30+ people.
So, I’m trying something new. I’m taking a few pointers from the minimalists in the world. I’m going to spend 30 days decluttering and organising my space and my time. So I can spend quality time with those good friends, achieve those goals, have a little more peace and finally tidy that room (and keep it tidy).
So, if you’d like to hear about a 20 year old on a quest to the holy grail of a clean and tidy room, then follow my blog. If you have any tips or tricks that’d also be more than welcome!
