Hello people of the earth!
The other day I was sorting out my room, you know, the massive sort of one where every item comes out of your room and the aftermath is usually a huge pile of clutter (aka junk). And I was realising how much stuff I hold on to for sentimental value or for no reason at all. Also the other day, I was listening to the radio and a lady was talking about what you need and what you don’t. She said: ‘hold up the item in front of you, look at it for a while and think, “Does it spark joy?” and if it doesn’t, there’s no reason you should be keeping it at all.” This is probably why I have three bin bags of stuff ready to sell or take the charity shop at the moment (but there’s still a couple of small piles to sort through though.). Also, a tactic to sort the aftermath is to sort it into categories. Mine are usually: books, crafts, stationary, papers (to be then sorted into my box file), clothes, cosmetics and ornaments.
And also, I’d like to tell you something else, more personal. When I started this blog I just wanted to be myself and post what I want, but then I realised how cruel the online world could be. So, I altered my name a bit, making me not me so people would judge my name or my age. So, Jade isn’t my real name, my real name is Catherine. Catherine Jane. I changed it to changed it to Jade online because I loved the idea of the name and I was trying to make excuses the other day that I changed it because it sounded like Jane but, nah, it doesn’t. My mum calls me Kitty so that’s where that came from. I don’t really want to confuse you anymore but I like to shorten it to Erin, so that’s how I’ll be ending this post. And from now on I’m not going to pretend to be someone else. I’m going to be me.
Thanks for all the support on this blog, and everywhere else.
