In terms of housework, I always seem to be playing catch-up. I don’t know why this is. If you hear me talk, I seem like the kind of person who will always wash every dish after use, so it doesn’t pile up. If you look at my academic record (and my color-coded planner), you see that I always stay on top of things there…so why can I never manage to have clean laundry and a sparkling, dish-less sink?
I really, really love minimalist living. It’s so clean and elegant. And you would think that as a poor college student it would be easier to live minimally than in a cluttered way. But no.

I guess I might have randomly come up with my New Year’s resolution in November.
How do you de-clutter a life?
