how to live alone well – installment two

2) write letters; especially, write a letter in an unconventional way

(for instance, write it on your leftover boarding passes because paper is hard to come by here)

3) learn to love your dwelling and spend some time nesting

My room; sometimes I just sit and stare at the sunshine when it comes into my room like that.

Putting up all these paper pieces of life was one of the first things I did when I got here.

I hadn’t cleaned out and re-arranged my wardrobes since I arrived, and I felt myself taking deeper breaths immediately afterwards.  Thanks, Mom, for making me an organization freak.  But I guess that’s why clean shelves make me feel at home.

Good news: when you live alone and have minimal social responsibilities, you have time to fold all your clothes very neatly (you know, the way things are folded in clothing stores).

My favorite times of the year: when the weather is first cold enough to put socks on and when the weather is first warm enough to take my socks off.

    Well, homeschooling had to be good for something, if only to create an “organization freak.”
