It's true! Junk!
I moved into my apartment on the 2nd February. So if my maths wont let me down now, I've been living here for 7 months and a couple of days now.
I'm moving again this weekend. From Apartment nr X to Apartment nr XX; in the same building. Okay, so how hard could that be, right? I mean, it's not like I'm gonna have to pack and move boxes upon boxes upon boxes. It'll be more effective to pack my stuff in open crates, carry it up to the next floor, and unpack it in my newly paid for, slightly bigger apartment.
For the heavier stuff, like bed, table, fridge, couch, bookshelves, etc, I've already batted my eyelashes at my strong male neighbours and they're more that willing to help me with that too. (I mean literally batted my eyelashes. I might not have a killer body or a good looking bank account, but my eyes contain all the power that any 6ft blonde blue eyed supermodel could ever hope to have. Eat that, biatches! lol)
So, packing: sorted. Heavy lifting: sorted. No, problem, right?
I'm a junk collector of note. Papers!! My goodness, I have pieces of paper and receipts everywhere. Folders with newspaper clippings, and lists upon lists upon lists. And little scraps of paper with strange ideas hastily scribbled. Paper everywhere!
And I have too many stuff. Sure its pretty and all, but do I really need it? Candles and candle holders and reed baskets and wire&bead creations (okay thats not actually so bad: I received a compliment about my decor style from my landlady last week And instead of displaying it on bookshelves and table and other cliched surfaced, I've taken an entire wall to display said bead and wire and some other creations on.)
Books! Everywhere! (Might I just strongly add that i DON'T consider books to be junk) But it's a bitch to move hundreds of books. I have more books than shoes, clothing items and kitchen utensils, combined. Yes, Its that bad! I dont have enough bookshelves for my books.
So, ja, one can just imagine how much I'm looking forward to this weekend, to carry the mountain of contents collected in this tiny apartment up to a bigger apartment.
Oh my word, can you imagine how much stuff I could fit into a bigger apartment..... I moved 3 times before. Every time I promise myself I'm gonna get rid of more that half of my earthly possessions and start afresh in my new place. start afresh minimalistically, that is.
And it usually works out for the first 3 months. Then, suddenly, I realize I have more stuff now that I moved with 3 month ago.
Okay I'm now relatively charged up. Lemme go get a big black rubbish bag and start throwing our.... *sigh*
I'm not suffering from insanity, I'm enjoying every seconde of it...
