Sorting out my room is SUCH an adventure.
I’ve been stumbling upon the most random objects and notes that made me laugh out loud to myself like a maniac, go silent with memories, relive past phases in my life and get all confused because i don’t know whether to throw them away or not.
My brother’s advice: Just close your eyes and throw.
Daddy’s line: You simply throw away things that i know can be used!
I’ve separated things that are still usable (just that i know i won’t use them anymore) into a huge box from… BAT. -_-
I just so happened to have the gratis box.
So now it’s holding all my treasured junk.
In another smaller box are things which are too precious to give/sell and it’s now my “Emergency Present Box.”
It really is a box of treasures with branded goods that i received and just never used…
Daddy saw the hallway packed with rubbish, things to give/sell, things to keep, and things i don’t know where to put.
“You have SO MUCH stuff in the hallway, yet you still have SO MUCH stuff in the room!!!” he exclaimed.
“I know i know… now when i look at everything, i don’t even know how i managed to fit ALL THAT into my room!”
The reason i’m taking longer is also because i’m separating ALL my rubbish into paper, plastic and glass to recycle.
So there are even more trash bags spread around.
Which is aggravating my mother excessively.
NickIsTaller popped into my room to sibuk, “Wow, i can see more of the floor now!”
“Oh shut up!”
I donated heaps of condoms i found around my room to him.
Got them from so many events and they’re of so many brands.
I must’ve given him like ten separate brands.
Aren’t i such a caring sister? Hee hee.
Found so many strange things the past few days.
Confetti – Uh huh… i’m sure i’s saving that for a party… sometime…
Zebra mask – I have no idea where that came from -_- Might wear it to Lap Sap one day!
Christmas baubles – i meant to paint them to give away. Obviously that never happened.
A Cert – Oh my. This is the BEST. I laughed so loudly to myself in the room. It was a cert awarded to me from high school thanking me for partaking in the Anti Alcohol Campaign. THE IRONY.
Notes – Mostly written with AishahCravesCoffee and Yishyene.
Leaves – from a forest in Devon. I’m not throwing these away…
Spanish doubloon – from the 17th century! I have no idea how much this is worth. A girl called Laurie gave it to me when i left Newcastle when i was 8.
Things that i can’t bear to throw away are all my old artworks. Daddy tried convincing me to chuck them and i shrieked, “Oh my god! NO!”
I’m chucking alot of cardboard and coloured papers… quite sayang but i know i won’t use them.
The papers i’m keeping are these gorgeous Conqueror ones which are way too precious.
Perfect timing is:
WHEN THERE’S A JUNKYARD SALE IN CONJUNCTION WITH LAPSAP AS I’M IN THE MIDST OF CLEANING MY ROOM.
Got a message from Melissa Chan on FB:

I’ve already booked a table to get rid of all my stuff.
I’m not trying to make money here.
All i want is the stuff to go to someone who will actually use these things.
Especially if you’re an art student because… i have so many paints, brushes and marker fluids that aren’t cheap and i just want them to go to people who will use them.
So i won’t be charging much at all. Prollie a few bucks or something.
We can bargain and you can talk rubbish to me as i try to give away my rubbish.
I plan to bring along martini glasses, my shaker, ice and my bottle of Grey Goose to layan diri (and feed you alcohol) to be all happy clappy throughout the day.
18th of November.
Okay back to sorting out my stuff before my parents throw everything unto the road.
