This Week, The World is Getting Messy

Sometimes, I look at my closet and I just get overwhelmed.

The amount of stuff that I have is absolutely ridiculous. I have no idea how to make sense of it all. There’s clothes, shoes, purses, backpacks, a  mini Christmas tree, DVDs, a plastic bin full of summer clothes and that’s just what I can see from my computer desk. Like I said, I get overwhelmed by it. So much so that I’ve been ignoring the growing mess in my room for the past week. I figure it will magically go away by itself. I sincerely hope that my home came with a house elf that I have no knowledge of, yet.

Ugh. I am so bad at getting organized! I wish that I could afford one of those professional organizers that come into your house and just get rid of everything you don’t need. Le sigh. I guess that since that is not happening anytime soon, I should at least try to sort my mess out. That’s what adults do. Clearly, I am still on my way to becoming a full-functioning adult.

Here are some of my theories on a messy (I really should say messier) world:

1. The environment. We’ve already made a pretty big mess out of that one, but without any sort of clean-up…OH MY GOD. I can already see the 3 foot long rats (I apologize for the visual).

2. Hoarders would be a reality in (sorry) real-life…what I’m trying to say is: a common thing. Eeek! As a side note: that show terrifies me. I’m not a squeamish person, but Hoarders has made me gag. One word: meat locker (again, sorry for that).

3. On the upside, we wouldn’t have to pay taxes for things like garbage pick-up. There has to be a silver-lining to this, and I’m grasping.

4. The more I think about a dirty the world, the more freaked out I get. I’ve been in labs with syringes and nasty chemicals. Can you imagine if all that stuff wasn’t properly disposed of?! We’d all be dead.

Aaaah! No, I’m going to get myself together. I can manage to organize a few clothes. I don’t want to end up on Hoarders you guys (trust me, the potential is there)! Don’t get me wrong, I have my limits. I don’t leave food or anything that can spoil in my room. Do any of you have good ideas for organizing a closet? I’m in a constant battle with mine, and I’d like to know about others’ organizational skills. I am lacking in the organization department.
