Home sweet home

Sorry for the sudden disappearance! I guess I didn't anticipate how much time and energy moving out would be. I am wiped out! Yesterday morning I had a doctors appointment and then I came home and spent the rest of the day clearing all my belongings out of my room and packing them into the back of my car. It's funny to see all your stuff condensed into the trunk of a vehicle. It's like, well... there it all is. I've never been a clothes horse, but holy cow. I think maybe now I am one. The only things I really own are clothes. Clothes and a winnebago. And a laptop. I can't really think of anything else I need in life! Haha. I'm really liking going back to a more simple existence. My family has always had a lot of stuff, and I remember when I went to college it was nice to purge and exist in a new, smaller space.

I think I like compartmental living. When I was younger I used to be fascinated with the Japanese lifestyle and how perfectly compartmentalized their living spaces are. I was also fascinated with motorhomes too, naturally. I would draw them and dream about going on cross country trips. I think if I ever stop moving around in my little mobile home, I'd love to live in a house like the one in the movie Totoro. It has the Japanese compartmentalized feel, but it's in the middle of nature. Perfect. But really, who wouldn't want to live in any Miyazaki film. So magical!

I got this amazing necklace from The Morose Bee, and I love it! I'm definitely a fan of unique necklaces. I think I have a penchant for hanging my favorite things from around my neck. I have a Star Trek Enterprise necklace, a polaroid camera necklace, a scrimshaw square rigger necklace, and now a bicycle necklace! It's too cute. She's got some really fun things in her shop and for the month of July she's offering free shipping!

Okay, well, It's nearly 1 pm and my family is bugging me to go to lunch so I should probably put on some clothes and look like a decent human being. I've got an update on my Blog Garage Sale coming up later today that I've been meaning to post for a couple days, so stay posted!
