It’s nightime. 8 o’clock. I should be watching Gossip Girl, but it’s one of those repeat episodes again, and I can’t bother. I know, I love the idiot box. I’m a couch potato.
My nose is specially fucked up today – I have hayfever + spent the afternoon swimming which makes the allergies even worse + cointidentially hit my nose with a pool stick, instead of hitting the ball (imagine the clumsyness). Besides all this, it’s been a good day, a good week, a good month, and a good year SO FAR.
Maybe it was an attempt to apply the “New Year, New Life” thing, I don’t know. But, last night, out of the blue, I decided to move everything I have to another room in the back of the house. I disasembled and reassembled the bed, carried heavy furniture, reinstalled electricity in the right places, and was done before 10 pm (took me about 3 hours). It was like I had been possessed by something. My family was staring in bewilderment but they didn’t say much… and didn’t help much either. 😛
Anyway, my new room is great. It’s the same 21-year-old bed, the same EVERYTHING; but it has a window from where I can see the patio, and it actually gets COLD at night, and gets LIGHT on daytime. My old room, although like twice as big, felt a lot more suffocating. It was located in the middle of the house with only a small window. The air didn’t circulate, it was hot all day and night (after my last fan broke, I haven’t been able to get a new one.) It was so hot that it had become a habit to take a shower at nights and to sleep naked. 0.O (It started with me going to bed in PJs and waking up topless, without any recolection of taking anything off. Later it extended to nakedness, and eventually one day I caught myself taking off the clothes kind of automatically. Lately I just couldn’t bother to get in the PJs at all.)
The light didn’t know my old room either, no problem, I have artificial light, of course. But the whole thing still felt like a cave. Besides changing rooms, I got rid of a lot of crap I didn’t even knew I had, and took off everything from the walls that I didn’t even remember.
So, here it is. It looks normal, but I love being in there now. It’s cozy, cool, and I think I can keep it a bit more organized. I still need to paint it, and fill my walls with new stuff aswell.
Improvised Feng Shui. HAHA yeah right.
Now, seriously; changes rock, even if they are so subtle they only mean something to you.
