雑な部屋だよ！What a messy room!
There are boxes and trunks and suitcases everywhere. This is seriously maddening. I thought you might enjoy seeing the deconstruction of my little world.
Now, certainly I’m not taking everything to Japan with me immediately. I am blessed with an awesome best friend who is willing to keep two boxes of books for me. We’re doing a lovely little exchange. She’s going to send a couple books to me at a time while I send her random Japanese stuff in return! She really wants a clear umbrella and some crazy Engrish T-shirts. It’s a nice little arrangement.
I also have to mail a few boxes to my mom. Thankfully she’s willing to hang onto a few things for me until I can afford to have them shipped (nostalgic stuffed animals and knick-knacks and whatnots). While I’m certainly thrilled to set up my home in a Japanese way, I also want to surround myself with my own special, familiar memories. I plan on being in Japan for quite a long time, so I’m willing to wait a bit to have my items returned to me.
I’m going to miss my apartment. I still can’t believe I’m actually packing all of this up to move to Japan. I’ve had three different apartments and two dorm rooms since moving to Florida. Every time I would pack up, I wasn’t moving far. I wasn’t even moving out of the same town. It sort of feels like this is just the same pattern. But deep down, I know better.
I have so much more to actually throw away and get ride of than I thought… *tears*
It’s quite surprising, actually. I moved around this same time last year, and I remember getting rid of so much stuff! I just decided to throw it away for donate it to Good Will because I knew that I would be moving to Japan soon. I was so proud of myself. Now I look at everything, realizing I simply cannot transport 90% of my things to Asia… and I am not sure how that happened. I guess you accrue things during a year that you don’t even realize.
Thankfully, I’ve had my cat to help me out in the packing process. He’s a real big help… haha
