Dream Home du Jour/A little hoarding is A-Ok

ohhh, sitting here in my trashed apartment, where one must wade through piles of clothes ankle-deep just to cross the room/ in near darkness, no less, stubbing toes on the clunky shoes strewn everywhere, because my overhead light, too high up to tend to myself, is dead and I could never let my landlord, or anyone, see this disaster/ starving, because my kitchen is useless without a single clean dish (dinner was a lime popsicle)/ I wish for self-discipline, follow through (clean the apt has been on the to-do list for a week), a housekeeper, a simpler, cleaner, less colorful, cluttered, and hoarder-esque decorating sensibility (bff calls it "organized chaos", not sure where she is getting the organized), and (obv!), Niecy Nash (Linsay Lohan - secret celebrity hoarder??  checkitout)...

However, instead of cleaning, I find myself collecting inspiring images of my super clean, airy, not-cluttered, someday house, images I'll share here to give some relevance to my procrastination:

I mean, I don't want to become a celebrity hoarder like Lindsay, but it is really hard for me to get rid of things, and many times I end up grateful for that.  For instance, I just came across a pair of shoes buried in some box of shoes in my parents garage.  They are these awesome vintage, brown, 70's looking, wood-soled platform sandals.  And I love them now!  and have worn them twice in the past month.  Also, when going through my closet trying to get rid of things, I found this long-sleeved, black, off the shoulder, leotard-type top I bought from Forever 21 my senior year of high school.  I pretty much had only been keeping it in case I took a ballet class or something and wanted to be style-y (hey, I might take a ballet class, one never knows), but when deciding whether or not to keep it, I tried it on with a high-waisted skirt and a long necklace and now I am pretty much in love with it, after eight years (ahhh I'm old...).  Anyway, I'm not sure what the moral of that story is; a little hoarding is okay?  

I just want to get organized mostly, and actually figure out what I have.  Right now I have the biggest closet of my life and it still doesn't nearly fit everything all my clothes and shoes.  Still, when I do start to go through it all, as I have been these past couple days, I come across these great clothes that I've forgotten about and I actually feel guilty - like I've neglected all these perfectly good things while crying about having nothing to wear.  Anyway, I've said it before and probably will say it again, but I am going to get as clean and as organized as possible, then commit myself to keeping it up as best as I can (at least until I have a housekeeper... or Niecy Nash).

Sweet Dreams, Beauty Queens
