cleaning

wow, it's amazing what one can find hidden in their room once they decide to start clearing through some of the junk...

x. a brand new packet of postage stamps
x. a ton of stickers & zine flyers
x. letters & cards from friends
x. my copy of mind's eye zine
x. prints i ordered from deviant art
x. photographs of old friends (and some of hayden that i'll give to you, sparkleoflife next time i see you)

and now that i've sorted through this big box of stuff i had left over from when i swapped my desk over for a bookcase in my room, i have officially decided that from now on, i will NOT collect epherema/ things that look 'interesting'/ those free postcards from random places or pamphlets or catalogues (etcetcetc) with the 'intention' of sending it to people unless i have someone very specific in mind and can send it straight away!!!. no, really. half the stuff i threw into recycling tonight was things that i "meant" to send off in packages & letters to people, that they might find interesting. but they got lost amongst the rest of the JUNK in my room, not to be found until 6 months later... oh, crazy.

my ability to collect junk amazes me. in not a very good way. how the hell did i become such a packrat? i still hesitate to throw things out once i've rediscovered them, but part of me just wants to bulldoze everything down and start again. i'd probably be just as bad though. i never learn, really.

from now on: NO MORE COLLECTING FREE STUFF. like those newspapers you can get every friday from the music stores, or interesting brochures. *nods* it's here in writing now, it's official! (haha).

although my room has a lot more space in it now (sort of) and i'm feeling rather pleased with myself for finally doing what i have been putting off for 2 months. next: i tackle the office. although perhaps not tonight. it's just as bad as my room, really, and i don't think i can handle two cleaning jobs tonight.

if anyone wants some zines, let me know. i'll make some grab bags. $ 5 maybe? some of these zines definitely deserve to be passed on, not just sitting in our home office.

i am feeling rather accomplished, really. too bad it's back to work tomorrow though.
