Stupid, stupid me!

I admit I am not a very organized person. The other day it almost cost me a bundle. Well, it has probably cost some electricity anyway. I have realized that, the freezer door was not shut properly. When I looked inside, I saw quite a bit of snow-like ice which never happens since it is a no-frost fridge and realized that since I was not placing things in there carefully but rather cramming everything, the door somehow did not shut well. If I hadn't seen it that day and left for my week-long trip, I am sure all food in there would be spoilt.

This is downright stupid of me. After all it is a matter of minutes to organize everything in that little space.

When it comes to organizing anything around the apartment, I suddenly become to Guru of Procrastination. Even small chores seem like big burdens. Why am I like this? I gotta get my act together. I remember how proud I had felt when I had organized my shoes few weeks ago. Besides such chores actually have theraphy effect since they do not require a lot of thinking.

On the other hand my mom is the Guru of Organization. Everything in her apartment has a place and at any given time during the day, if you look at her apartment, you will see that nothing is ever out of place. Most of her rooms look like there is nobody living there. After every meal, she meticuluosuly cleans up and leaves her kitchen as if it has not seen any action for days. So, how could her own daughter be so messy?

I am not happy with myself lately...

  2. I don't think it is stupidity -- I think it is more inattention to detail -- I have an old refrig in my apartment and I am finding that the door doesn't always close properly so have to remind myself to double check it! As far as organization goes -- I used to be pretty organized -- but some health issues and apartment moves and I am struggling to get back to organizing stuff again. I try to pick one item per day to take to it's rightful home -- just one -- slow progress that way, but steady

    1. I need to purge some stuff to make room for necessities too. Hope your health issues are all resolved now.

  3. Definitely not stupidity! We all make mistakes, but the trick is to learn from them, right? ;) I live in a state of organized chaos, although it's much, much better than when I was younger. It's easy to get distracted with things when you get home, so don't be so hard on yourself. You DID find it, you DID fix it and it's all okay. x

  4. School is great - my time management, not so much! Things are beginning to get really busy as we head into the end of November and I've got lots of stuff to do as we head towards our finals, including trying to decide which 'stream' of the program I want to take. I'm a bit torn right now. I was just thinking I need to get another post up sometime soon. Perhaps this weekend... Take care! x
