To start off summer, I sat down for .05465 seconds and then got up and unloaded everything. As I went through each box I thought back on what I had used in the past year. I sorted everything into five piles and then reorganized everything I kept.
The five piles:
3) Clothes to go to consignment
4) Donate to Goodwill
5) Sell on Craigslist
My room was a pit! College life exploded all over the house!
Not long after I went through everything, we decided now was as good a time as any to paint the study room and my bedroom. My room is a really bold color I chose back in high school so I wanted something more serene.
Since the walls are so bright, we had to prime first. Not to mention some holes we had to patch. Ta DA! The not so finished product.
We are still working on it.
Here’s the color for my room, although the internet picture looks nothing like the swatch I have, so we will see how it turns out.
And here’s the study room swatch.
I’ve always been really into the meanings of different colors like how yellow is cheerful and red can be anger or passion. But, what do light tealy-grays say?
Amidst my productivity, I gave my dog, Copper a bath. He did not enjoy it, so to get back at me, he came into the room where I was priming right after and laid down lengthways along the wall where I had just cut in around the baseboard and got paint all down one side of his back. He’s a stinker.
When this happened, I then had to quickly escort a very squirmy dog outside without getting wet paint all over the carpet and furniture. Success!
Anyway, something that always strikes me when I do projects in my dad’s line of work (home improvement)- and even cleaning/organizing- is how instantly gratifying it is when compared to school work. You study and study for four months before you receive one letter grade. In a little bit of time you can get a whole lot of work done and the results are visible every step of the way. I like seeing the fruits of my labor every step of the way. I like it sometimes. It’s a nice change of pace. I also like getting my hands dirty and not letting myself get too lazy during my lazy summer. Work can be fun guys!
