Getting life in order

Moving back into to my room at home has proven much more difficult than expected. I have probably spent close to 20+ hours trying to unpack my belongings and find new homes for them. 20 hours of my life that I will never get back, mostly spent asking myself "why is this process is taking so long?"

I have filled boxes upon boxes with books, toys, clothes, bedding, pictures, and electronics that I haven't used since I was a junior in high school. However, the hardest part has been organizing and trying to find a place for my shoes. In my room in Seattle, my shoes hung nicely in an over-the-closet-door-shoe-organizer. Unfortunately, my closet at home comes door-free and so an alternative solution had to be thought of. After much brainstorming, they landed on my bookshelf. No longer in school, no longer need to read, right?

Needless to say, it has been a large project with no end in sight. 

Also, just a quick update for all my new readers...In exactly two weeks I will be boarding a plane to Australia for an indefinite amount of time. I have always wanted to go there and so, for the time being, I will be living abroad. I have created a handy little countdown so that you can be excited for the start of this adventure with me!

Much love,

WhAAAt? I didn't know you were coming down under?!? That's so cool! I have the opposite dream that will probably take shape in December, all prayers pending! :) So, fill in the details - where are you coming to, what are you going to do, what do you need to know?
