my dear friends,
i am an extreme kind of person. i'm also horribly unorganized. when it comes to cleaning, this combination of personality traits means that i let stuff accumulate in my room until it is SO MESSY that i cannot stand it anymore. today was that day. i have clothes that have been left all over my room from my trip back home at the beginning of the summer, to my new york trip, and far, far beyond. on top of that, my 5-person car has been (permanently) a 3-person car because of all the stuff that has been eating my backseat alive. my car-mess has consisted of clothes, sheet music, magazines, about 10 pairs of shoes, and plenty of trash. gross, i know. this is why i didn't post pictures of my car -- it's a bit embarrassing. BUT. today, i cleaned. i cleaned a lot. my room went from a total hole to being pretty nice, if i do say so myself. and my car is completely EMPTY!!! i am so proud.
this was only done with my utter boredom, and the help of stars, stephen speaks, missy higgins, (thanks for the throwback, shuffle), blue october, and fun. (< watch that last video, trust me, it's adorable).
my goal is to keep my room (by the way, i spelled room "roam" and "rome" before i got that correct. win.) this clean for at LEAST a month. dream big, right?
i hope you have all had a fabulous and exciting memorial day! to finish, i would like to share a wonderful quote i spotted today.
“our individuality is all, all, that we have. there are those who barter it for security, those who repress it for what they believe is the betterment of the whole society, but blessed in the twinkle of the morning star is the one who nurtures it and rides it, in grace and love and wit, from peculiar station to peculiar station along life’s bittersweet route.”
