Life is so unpredictable
A few months back, one of my closest friends here had to leave town in the middle of his program for an unexpected emergency. Now he cannot come back and has left me the task of closing up his affairs here- like vacating his apartment, selling off his car, etc. While I'd like to do all I can to help him out in this difficult time, I was dreading the idea of having to clean up and vacate his apartment for him. Today I went there, and found (to my surprise) that it was spic and span. He is so organized, so neat and tidy. A far cry from what my apartment looks like, what with my style being more "organised chaos". Emptying his place is going to be so much more simpler than emptying my own place! He knows exactly what papers he wants to keep, throw, where they are, and has almost no junk in the apartment. I got started on boxing things at his place, and came home and began putting some of my own things in some respectable order.
