Finally, a room to call my own again.
I have never been so excited to sleep in an actual bed. A couple of months ago, I moved back to New Jersey from North Carolina. I’m back in the same apartment with my brother. Before today, I had the living room and the couch to call my own. The couch is incredibly uncomfortable to have as a permanent place to sleep. It’s cool for a little bit: you sink into it, it’s fluffy, different. But after a while, my back totally started to feel it. I’d wake up sore and uncomfortable. This pain lasts throughout the day too.
It’s nice to have a private place to call my own. I don’t have to worry about when my brother has people over, or when the exterminator comes in to do the monthly checkup. The living room can be a place for people to hang out in without me having to move all of my stuff out of the way to accommodate our company. Everything can be organized how I want it. It feels so clean and tidy. And no one will be able to contribute to it’s clutter except me. Which won’t happen. My mood is affected by the organization of my living arrangements. My dresser is no longer a single laundry basket on the floor. I always had to keep something over top of it as to prevent my cat from using it as a bed.
All-in-all, this is one of the necessary steps towards getting my life together. Being motivated to keep my room clean and organized gives me a sense of pride. A sense of pride is an example of purpose. Purpose gives me another reason to enjoy living.
Working towards the future.
One of my future projects is to start working on a community called ProgramFor.Fun. This is actually the domain name. This community will revolve around my studies of various programming languages and techniques. Basically, you can learn with me. Even if it doesn’t get popular, this will be one of my largest accomplishments. Having a place to showcase what I’m learning will not only give me a reason to keep studying, but it will force me to be more thorough in my learning given that this will also be a resource for others to learn. To master something is to be able to teach it.
If you guys are actually reading this, I’d like to thank you for using your time to read through my diarrhea of the mind. I don’t really have anything specific to talk about yet, but just you wait. There’s plenty more to come. That’s it for today though! I’m going to go some yoga and hopefully get to bed soon. Talk to you all later!
