A Thorough Job

I cleaned almost everything I have, this time getting rid of almost everything it seems because I might be moving to a group home.

I saved my violins, my flute, my piccolo, my music books, my German learning books, and some classical CDs I like.

I threw out my hair accessories except the black ones like pony tail holders and pins.  I even threw out the children's dresses I got, figure they're just in the way.  I may do a sweep of my clothes and get some more appropriate ones, like $6 long sleeve shirts at Rainbow.  My dad had been saying I need to get rid of clothes.  There's always the idea I get polo shirts and sweaters.  I have 10 black pants, well one went missing when my aunt went to hem a few.  I have like 8 or 9 nice jeans.  I have a few non-uniform-ish things, too.  I'm just so happy I finally did it.  I can compress a bit more, too.  Now, most of what I use is in 2 boxes, one for what I use and one for things I store like documents, which aren't many.  I bought a bunch of stuff with the stimulus check in the end, and I seem to have returned or gotten rid of most of it, including the children's dresses, also coffee making things.  I already got rid of my DVDs and CDs the other day.  I have some books with passwords, too, these past 12 years online, some already unfortunately recklessly thrown out.  I got rid of a bunch of things I use like for hair and junk from makeup.  I sadly got rid of beaucoup art papers to draw or paint on.  I can't see that baggage coming with me.  I draw on typing paper and have colored pencils, though.  I also have I think like 100 colored sparkly gel pens in a nice case I got.  I only have minimal things otherwise.  Some of this process was very nostalgic.  I even took apart a huge DIY shelf.  My room feels empty and meditative, good feng shui.

So, mainly, I have musical instruments, music books, learning German books, and a few favorite classical CDs.

I've got a MacBook Air and Chromebook, too.  I might get rid of more furniture and like I said redo my wardrobe.  I was gonna wear children's dresses, but it's too much of a waste.  I mean, normally, I wouldn't wear them, possibly.  I need more appropriate clothes.  Maybe, I'll do some window shopping online now and post online.  Looks like a good day's work and maybe time for supper.  I do have my old hamster who may die.  I ordered a more compact cage that never came in, too.

I get about $780+/month.  I plan to save as much as possible and concentrate on good food as a diabetic, too.  I have no car now, so if I want to eat out might take the buses or order it.  My goal is to get off the diabetes and cholesterol pills.  I have some vibrating, pulsing, trembling, and shaking from a dislocated ankle/foot, and it affected more of my body.  It was from driving, when I flex my foot awkwardly on the break pedal.  I haven't driven much for over 15 years.  I started again this past year and got ot being comfortable on I4.  This month, $100 went to fixing my messed up hair, dying and cutting.  I don't know where the rest went.  It seems some better prospects for this month.  I can't wait until I'm totally done cleaning, hopefully soon.  I may have more time and focus without cleaning in the way, may even get a job.  I'm also still trying to get better at violin, even if just for myself.  I would love to be a pro musician.  I even majored in music but had to quit...  I did feel temptations as better prospects of becoming an actress first or singer.  I figured I could even get private ballet training with the money or learn organ again.  I get confused with what's better for someone like me, piano or violin.  I did piano first, though.  Well, I got to start singing when I was 5 by myself.  A lot of people never get to play music/piano like they want..  I guess piano is a private pleasure, strangely, just not always that symphonic!  I did get rid of my keyboard, which came broken and was cheap, anyway.
