Organized Home

My home really isn't well organized, normally that doesn't bother me because I have lots of room to spread out. Normally. Right now GD#1 is staying with me until she finishes College and since she is creative like me there is a lot more stuff around than normal.

We've added a Kallax in the bedroom for her clothes but the living area is quite crowded, partially because of my Kallax and partially because there are now two desks in it and various other shelving units.

My Kallax is like the one above except that it is full of milk crates which are full of my crafting stuff and books. Replacing it with something smaller is not an option but maybe I can reorganize it a little. If I can do that I can remove two of my biggest headaches. I have a 3 shelf bookcase and a small portable filing cabinet I would love to get rid of and I will if I can relocate their contents elsewhere.

Thus the reason I need to go through the contents of the Kallax and get rid of things I am not going to get around to any time soon. Do the same with the file cabinet and the bookshelf. Transfer what is left after the cull from the bookshelf and the file cabinet to the Kallax and I will have opened up my workspace considerably.

Do the same with the stuff under my work table and I should have a comfortable, workable space to set up my sewing machine or anything else I need for a project without feeling so crowded.

I also have the option of adding various inserts to the shelf unit which will also help with the organization. All the things I'm thinking about today.

Well not quite I also have a huge issue with my bedroom closet but that is because I have too many clothes and can't be bothered to hang them after they are washed. If I could get into that habit I think the problem might lessen a lot. There are other issues in my bedroom but that is the one that concerns me the most right now.

BTW, Professor, I have that power screwdriver thing here, I found it in my closet when I pulled my clothes out.

I know the method, I just gotta get the energy.

1) Gather everything in one place
2) Sort into three piles keep, give away/sell and toss
3) Once they are sorted follow through with the giveaway and toss parts
4) Put the keep stuff back in their proper places

Voila! Done! Yeah right if only it were that easy. Truth is sometimes we have something that needs to be tossed or could be given away but we won't because of some sentimental reason or my usual, someday I will get it done, excuse. Sometimes you got to force yourself to do what you know is right

Do you have any suggestions? I'd love to hear from you!

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
