Sometimes, I need to have some sort of order in my head before I can write. The same applies when I am mulling over something, like decisions to make, course of action to take, and such. When I seemed to be stuck about something, I need some sort of order around me.
Usually, I rearranges the room in the house I have converted into my ‘me’ place, sometimes, our living room. If the pieces of furniture in the house can speak, they would probably mutter, here we go again, every time I’m in my rearranging mood!
My husband is used to this quirkiness, so are my siblings and my mother, and my friends whom I have shared a dormitory room and apartments. For sure, I’m not the only one with this quirk!
My collection of DVDs and CDs are arranged alphabetically and according to genres (as much as I could)! My computer files are organized in folders and sub-folders, and my digital photos into albums with sub-labels (though I have a terrible backlog on this)! I used to lovingly arranged my paper photos in albums (I guess no one does that, really, anymore)! The cables and wires in the house are tied neatly with colorful ties and hidden from sight, as much as it could be done!
I have bought tons of organizers. They are like magnets to me, can’t resist ’em every time I see them, especially the ones that look very functional, and of course, cute! You name it, I probably have it!
I feel so much better, happier, and can think clearer, after I have finished my ‘organizing’ project of the moment.
Now, I’m about to embark on another ‘organizing’ project, hence this post. 🙂
Please indulge me as I would make some changes on the chapters of Beyond Forever I have already uploaded. I have been thinking about this for a time, but decided not to, really. But, I just can’t get it out of my head, so I’ll go ahead with it.
I would be separating the ‘past’ narrative from the ‘present’ ones. Please bear with me as I have to reload some materials that you have already read and commented on. Promise, the story will be moving along smoothly, hopefully, after this! 🙂 The latest update would be labelled Chapter 7!

Thank you for letting us take a peek in your “me” space. I totally can understand and relate on the “organization process” going on before you “can-move-forward-to- have-some-kind-of-order” type of thing. It’s for you to re-group, re-think and re-boot kinda. And you just gave me an idea. I should do that too!! But whatever you write or re-write, we will surely read. 😊 Thank you!!!
