After that I'd always come back to my room and lie again, but I guess that day, on that day, a spark of energy in me, perseverance to clean my room, I guess so. After I saw this:
|A messed up room.|
I was taking my time cleaning my room, especially when I see things I thought were lost, and some memorable pieces, like old test papers, old photos, gifts, more old photos and some works of my friends I asked for like old print ad campaigns.
Then I saw old 8x10 prints of my project in my class in Photojournalism. It was eating a lot of space and I thought, why not display it on the walls of my room, together with my no-good-but-nonetheless-I'm-proud-of-it-paintings. So I stopped, looked at my wall, visualized, held the masking tape in my hand, and started putting it all up.
|Room's still a mess, you can see that the Print Campaigns I asked from my friends are making their way on my wall.|
Wanting my room to be a space-efficient-with-a-gallery-look universe, I separated the tables and designated the one on the left as my work-related table and the the one on the right as my hobby-related table (where I will do my photography, painting and music writing stuff)
Throwing old stuff has been always hard for me because I'm such a sucker for old things and the memories with it that I treasure. But some things really have to go away, and as I put papers, cards, junk into the garbage bag, I took a one last look at everything I was throwing away, smiled at it, laughed at it, and sometimes regretted the memories it came with the stuff.
|Separated table gave me more space.|
|The cheapest collection I bought. The 7-11's "7-Elections" for PHP20! (less than $1)|
|The 12 photos of the main wall of my room.|
For the first time, in my life, and I'm not exaggerating, I wanted people to be in my room, to look at it, my room was the extension of me, I think people will get me if they took time to look at my room.
|The paintings I did, except the last one, it was made by a friend for me. See, I'm no Picasso.|
|My two cousins, this is the view from the door looking into the room. They painted for me, now I'm looking for space to put it up.|
Cheers! I'll be blogging more soon about my past travels that no one knew and the best moments of my 2012!
