It has been too long. The MBA has stolen my life, but I am determined to try and get it back a little bit. First up, bringing the tale of the on-going minimalism challenge up to date…
You all know I’ve tried really hard at this minimalism thing right….
I stole that. Blatantly.
I’ve kicked off a fresh 200 items list to keep the focus on the minimalist vibes!
In early 2012 I bought my first (and currently only) flat. Given that it was an empty flat and I was in rented accommodation it took a ridiculously long time, so by April I was desperate to move in… the day I was due to exchange I had a crazy afternoon with expensive scarves!
I have successfully removed another 100 items from my life, and made some nice steps towards dealing with some trickier emotional issues in relation to collecting and holding onto things unnecessarily. Although it took a long time, I’m really glad I persevered; I feel like I have got my mojo back with minimalism (I started listening to The Minimalists podcast recently which has helped as well). And so for a quick summary…
OMG I have been so behind on doing everything recently…. my big project at work completed, and it took up so much time and effort that I had just enough focus for that, keeping myself and the boyf fed and getting sleep and occasionally tidying the flat and that as it. But on a positive note I also finally rented the back room to a lovely lady called Sarah and her even more adorable cat Millie! But now I’m back and getting this blog going again!
