memories (cleaning my room)

cozy kitty snuggles

I spent most of Tuesday organizing my clothes into piles: school, home, donate, trash. Part of what I find so frightening about donating/throwing away clothes that I know I’ll never wear again is the fact that I might completely forget their existence. Even though most of these make me cringe, I was (am) a cringe-worthy adolescent, and I don’t want to forget it.

my vest phase; a hat identical to one Hilary duff wore in 2004, that I often wore in my room but that never actually left the house; a felt scarf I made; various graphic tshirts – from the orthodontist, from my first trip to London, from my first concert

the package my elementary school gave us after we watched “THE video” and had “the talk” in fifth grade, which I promptly hid in my closet; also, the microphone to my boom box

my walkie-talkies; truth or dare cards; a small fragment of my childhood obsession with bead creatures; a Hello Kitty mirror; a hacky sack; my bedtime reading light; a guitar pin that I won at my first recital; Harry Potter computer game; the first version of the Sims that came free with our computer

  1. going through old things and purging/donating unused items is a rush for me. i feel so nice afterwards! but there always some clothing things that i feel attached to but don’t wear anymore that are hard to part with. i like to try to give them to friends instead of taking them to a thrift store. 🙂

    1. giving them to friends is a really good idea! I need to start doing that… although by the time I’m ready to give away my clothes, they’re already so worn and outdated that I can’t imagine any of my friends actually wearing them, hah
