Well since the last journal was from April, I guess an update is in order.
I’ve barely drawn lately.
I was very busy with a different, very big, project.
I’ve been tidying my apartment following the Konmari-method.
The konmari-method is a way of tidying created by Marie Kondo. In short with the Konmari method: Step 1. you sort through ALL your stuff by category ( clothing, books, paperwork, “Komono*”, sentimental stuff, in that order )
As far as possible you only keep the stuff that “spark joy” aka make you happy.
Step 2. You take the time find the right place for everything and perhaps rethink where you put stuff. ( For example yesterday I went through all my aquarium-hobby-stuff and that’s currently in 4 different places in my apartment, I hope I can bring it back to 1 or 2. )
*= Komono is pretty much all things that don’t fall in the other 4 categories, for example mugs, CD’s, pens, etc.
This has been a project that has kept me busy for the last couple of weeks.
It is very important to me to reorganise my apartment, and I actually have started to enjoy the process.
I’m getting rid of stuff I no longer want or need and create more space and also hopefully a simpler household so I have so spend less time tidying and cleaning ( or feeling guilty that I should be tidying and cleaning ) and more time doing the things I love.
Konmari-ing through my pens and ink has even already made me excited for Inktober.
