Packing and throwing away

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Moving is always an annoying activity that ends up being worth it in the end, isn’t it? I’m really trying to concentrate on getting rid of most of my stuff. Honest, I’m giving away 50% of my books and clothes, almost all of my CDs and DVDs, and generally throwing out piles of old papers and anything else possible. It’s haaaaaaard and makes me tired. I’m trying to keep single minded like “No, Sarah, you’ll never read this. If you ever want to read it you can take it out of the library or buy it again. No big deal, just give it away.” That’s an example of something I’d say to myself about a book. And I’ll put by the door a huge box of things I’ve decided to lose, but then my heart aches and I worry that maybe I’m giving something away that I will really miss a lot! Lame, eh? But getting rid of things is working eventually, slowly and surely!

I really want to keep things sparse in my life. This is the way it should be, just clean and easy with nothing to worry about except the things that are important. My new surrounding will be clean, organized, focused and that will reflect in my whole life. Yes, I’m constantly self-Dr.Phil-ing myself, badly, if that’s even possible… Anyway, no clutter – that will be a really great change.

Meanwhile, look at the first google image search result of my full name!! Jealous? And without further ado, I give you, “omg_unicorns.jpg”:


When did I become such a wimp?

I used to be so tough! People would say, “Watch out for Sarah, sure she’s small, but you don’t want to mess with her! You’ll regret it!” And it’s true. I was ruthless if you crossed me! I don’t know what happened, but I gotta get that back pronto. That has become priority one, I think. It’s really important. Don’t step on me, OK?! From now on!
