Well, my summer is off to a great, albeit uneventful, start.
As always, I had visions of myself updating my blog regularly all summer long, but as you can see, I’m two weeks in and no update. I recently read that some bloggers are doing a “day in the life of” or a “month in the life of” series of blog posts, so I thought that I’d try to jump on that bandwagon for the month of June. We all know my history of updating on a regular basis, so we’ll see how it goes. The part of the plan that I find most enticing is that there’s no pressure to be interesting–just a picture or three with your iphone, a brief description of your day, and that’s it!
While I won’t start my (hopefully) daily mini-updates until tomorrow, I thought I’d share a few pictures of my summer thus far. No crazy adventures (yet!), just a lot of organizing, reading, and relaxing. Oh, and Criminal Minds. Lots and lots of Criminal Minds. It couldn’t have been a more perfect start to my summer after one of the most hectic years of my life.
As soon as I was completely finished with school this semester, I decided to attack my bedroom closet. I had pretty much neglected it since I moved in, and, to be honest, it was a complete disaster. It had been driving me crazy for the last four months, but I didn’t feel right about spending time organizing my closet when I should be studying. So, it continued to get worse and worse. I wish I had a true before picture, but I didn’t think about it until I had emptied most of it out. Still, I think you can get the picture:
I managed to get 5 black trashbags full to donate to goodwill (even though I retained a ridiculous number of t-shirts). Yay! And, because, I was bored today, you get pictures of that too!
Energized and excited by the progress I made on my bedroom closet, I decided to tackle my pantry next. Living in an apartment allows me little room for pantry/laundry storage, so I had to make due with what I have. While it’s not the most beautiful redo ever, I still think it looks pretty good!
Though I still have big plans to organize my office and my guest room closet, I lost a little of my organization enthusiasm after these two closets. As a result, the last few days have been filled with nothing but this:
For those of you who managed to make it through my post about closets without falling asleep, I commend you. I hope (for both your sake and mine) that the rest of my summer will be just as relaxing but a little more exhilarating. For now, though, a new (to me) episode of Criminal Minds is calling my name.
