The other week was a long weekend. It was supposed to be a staycation or a quick road trip somewhere south or north of the city. Unfortunately, I am saving my travel funds for some bigtime travels in March with friends and another travel in the middle of the year. The 3-day weekend ended up being holed up in my condo.
Then, I decided to check out my stuff hidden behind those closed cabinets for a much needed “after Christmas” cleaning. Letters, old notebooks, a draft of my college thesis, my beloved DVD sets featuring my favorite Korean actor, receipts /billing statements and scrapbook materials. I realized that I have amassed alot of stuff.
I was lucky that my bestfriend volunteered to arrange my files in the numerous clearbooks at home. Then, we saw the boxes. Letters and postcards sent by friends and family when email was still an idea of the future. Heck, I even saw the stamp collection of my bestfriend in one of the boxes.
The cleaning ended up with reading some notes and laughing at the biggest crush I had over an athlete. Hah, I am not talking about Rafa!
At the end of the day, the cabinet is neatly arranged. The frames on the wall are updated. The wires are tied up well. My tiny condo looks a tad bigger.
Not bad for the Lunar New Year celebration. A good time to kickstart the new year.
