Moving the Furniture

It’s patently absurd how much happier you feel about your living space when you just rearrange some of the furniture. It’s not like the old configuration of furniture is bad or oppressive, or inefficient, but the simple act of moving a desk from the living room to the bedroom makes fall in love with our apartment all over again. Suddenly there’s more space for socializing in the living room, and my own little corner in our bedroom for writing and displaying things!

Of course, I had that writing space and that desk before we moved it to the bedroom. It’s not like the desk wasn’t physically able to be used until it was moved into the bedroom. But the act of moving it away from a room where video games, TV, movies, and music exist to a room associated with relaxation has freed it- mentally- from all those things in the first place. The desk is no longer a place for games but a place for writing. It’s no longer a place for endless sessions of reading while downloading movies, but a place of expressed emotions and desires. And all just because we moved the desk into a different room.

My advice for today is this: find something in one of your rooms, it doesn’t matter what, and move it somewhere new or rearrange how it faces. Rotate your bed, move the TV to a different angle, move a desk to a different room, something, anything, and marvel at how much fresher your living space suddenly feels. And if you don’t like it? Nothing stopping you from just moving it back.

Man, biographies are really hard to write because sometimes you just don't know what to write about and then you ramble on pointlessly for a while about your hobbies (video games, reading, programming) and end up boring your readers because they expect something witty and insightful (there are only two ways to save money, neither of which involves hookers) and then readership falls off and you cry yourself to sleep.
