initial plan for sunday was to have lunch with jeff and vic, then probably head to ECP with D300. then it rained and lunch was called off. back-up plan was to laze in bed all day and go for a long cycle around the neighbourhood. didn’t feel like doing that. feels pathetic lying in bed all day.
then after lunch, i started clearing out stuff and throwing away stuff. just all of sudden. and i just kept throwing and throwing. throughout the whole evening. i rearranged some stuff and threw away more. my notes are gone. my textbooks are gone. my boxes are gone. my armchair is gone. my old VHS tapes are gone too. yes, i found them!
my corkboard is cleared up. waiting for a new pink sheet of paper to go with it. or something cheery. and while clearing out the drawer next to my bed, i found my old tamagotchi.
and then while i was getting something from my wardrobe, i realised how dirty the bottom of the wardrobe is and i started cleaning and throwing out clothes as well. and i was forced to stop when the dad came home and the mum started nagging that i have yet to have dinner.
when i went to wash my hands, black water came out! EEPS! see lah! so many months of cleaning the surface area of my room that i neglected the insides. tsktsk. must remind myself to clean them at least once every two months or smth. but i guess, it’s probably going to be easier now cause i have spread black paper at the bottom of the drawers and wardrobe. not the wall cabinet though. hmm. that has to wait i guess. too many books in there!
anyways, now that the armchair is gone…i have made a little sit down corner in its place.
i think my issue with the armchair was its big. and i never sat in it cause a) i am a cleanliness freak so i don’t sit on it before i bathe and b) after i’ve bathed, i will just proceed to lie on my bed or on my comfy roller chair. so now that the thing is on the floor, i can probably spend sometime sitting and relaxing in my room at times when i am home and before i bathe.
besides, if things doesn’t work out, the cushions can be used for other purposes. and they dont take up much space.
AND! in an attempt to take control of my life, i started a journal –
the initial idea was to bring it around. but seeing how big the book (birthday gift from my sister 3 years ago), i think i will have to write on post-its and then stick them into the book.
i am going to write my thoughts in there. write my emotions in there. and hopefully, it will help me manage them and perhaps, i will stop being so emo-nemo (not that i can help it sometimes. stupid medicine!). it will be like my take-10-breaths before you act thing.
hopefully it works and the procrastinator in me won’t stop me from continuing this habit.
All in all, Sunday has been tiring. the sudden cleaning frenzy exhausted me out. wondering if i should bring my camera to work tomorrow to shoot the teachers’ day celebration. will see how.
for now, bathtime and then some work before bed.
