Yay for having started on the goal! I packed up my dressers (since I took them with me when I moved out). There is still a lot of things in my room but moving out was an amazingly hectic time and I haven’t been home since. This is something that I need to get back to, though, for it isn’t fair for my brother to live in a room with so much of my crap in it. Luckily I have plenty of storage space in my apartment, so I can, in theory, throw everything into boxes, drag it back to the apartment, and then go through it.
My mom started some more packing for me, which I appreciate. She started putting the clothes I have left in the closet into a box – something that she is willing to do because she has been slowly “borrowing” clothes I have left at home. Most I don’t mind about, especially when it is things that don’t fit me anymore, but some things I will expect to be returned! Motives aside, it is a big help.
I want to have this goal done by the end of the summer. Hopefully that can be accomplished, especially since I have no job right now. Maybe my roommate will take me down to my house one Friday, since she has Fridays off for the summer. My brother deserves not to have my creepy dolls staring at him all the time and a desk not filled with my crap. 2 years ago
This is something I’ve dreamt about since I was in high school – moving out!! Now I know what you are thinking – “This has nothing to do with moving out!” But it does! While I’ve barely been home these past four years, especially last year and this year, my parents have not made me disassemble my room. Over the summer my youngest brother started staying in my room – mostly to avoid fights with my other brother since they share a room. When I got back from my trip to Kansas my dad asked me, since I’m not – I refuse to acknowledge that something could happen and then I will have to move back home – moving back in after college (I discussed this with my parents Christmas Eve) if I could pack up my room (at least my bookshelves and dresser tops). At first I was upset, although I have thought about doing this before he asked I thought “Jeez, I just told you and now you’re making me pack up!!”, but then he told me how paranoid my brother is of breaking something. Pretty shocking when an 11-year-old can respect other people’s property better than 17-22-year-olds.
So this goal will be a step in the right direction for two other goals – not moving back in with my parents after graduation and be a better sister. I need to get boxes/storage totes, figure out where I’m putting said boxes/totes, and then find time to go. Maybe even rope my fiance or friend into coming with me and helping/keeping me company. 3 years ago
