So Much Stuff!!!

There is a running joke that I have a Tardis. When I moved out of my friends' parents house and into an apartment with my now ex-boyfriend I was pulling stuff out of the closet and out from under the bed and from other places they didn't know existed!

Moving into the apartment I had more space and it didn't seem like I had that much stuff. Over the course of several months I had acquired things for the bedroom, the kitchen, the living room and the bathroom (and the cat). So having to uproot everything yesterday was very stressful and it only got worse when I was trying to unpack into a room with a tiny closet and a small dresser. On the bright side my mattress is on top of its futon frame again so I have this thing called 'space under the bed'. I think Mynx sees it as a giant cave for her to explore.

Right now I've got my bed set up, and my computer is up and running and everything works after being transported. I've mostly organized the desk with its 6 tiny drawers. I still have about 3 boxes to go through but I know two of those have a lot of my books in them; one appears to be all hygiene stuffs. I've been trying to toss things I don't need or don't use or can't wear. I know I have textbooks I haven't looked at and will never look at so I'll be recycling those.

Hopefully by the time I do move into my own place it won't be such a bad move and it might even seem lighter. Things will also be more organized and I'll know where all my stuff is. That was a stress point when unpacking because I didn't pack any of it. I just showed up, picked everything up, and drove away.

Now that I'm here and mostly settled I can save my money and continue the apartment hunt. As much as I want to go out and get myself a TV and a new XBOX... I don't have time to use those items. I go into town with my Mom for quarter to 8 and I don't get home until almost 10 at night. So perhaps it would be best to wait until I've moved into my own place to get those items. That way I'll have more time to use them since I'll already be in town so I can sleep in if I want to or take my time getting up and ready and maybe play a game or two.

Seems as though you're great with organizing. And you don't sit still, you're moving to the next logical step forwards all of the time. I'd say that is progress. How is work doing?

Work has been pretty good. My supervisor kind of understands the impact the breakup had on me and she was happy to see I was doing better when I came into work on the Tuesday. My coworker also empathized with my situation because he'd gone through a pretty bad breakup some years ago. In general I've been getting a lot of great support and advice from a lot of people.

Going in to work helps to take my mind off things and it keeps me busy. It's also nice to hear I'm considered a veteran already! I've only been on the Help Desk since September! I hope my contact gets extended at the end of the summer or they offer a permanent position and I do well in the interview for it. I like where I am, work wise, and the money is good and it can only get better! Not to mention I really want the work experience.

Oh, the progress! Very good. I would suggest that your 'tossing' stuff goes into recycle or a charity. Maybe someone can use what you don't need.

Well I recycled a bunch of paper and the clothes I tossed my sister took to a second hand store that sells a variety of used items. I even unloaded a few books I've already read; although I wouldn't do that with all my books (Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon).

I am happy that you are looking out for the environment and others. That should make you feel good. You kept some fine books.

Help Desk is a good place to learn, and keep you busy and distracted at the same time. If you like it as much, I'm pretty certain it will work the other way round too, people would want you to stay and there would be a good chance of a permanent position, either where you are, or elsewhere.
