~Disorganization & the artistic temprement~
I am, by far, the most disorganized person I know. Someone once told me that disorganization goes hand in hand with being a creative or artistic person. Over the past four days (yes, four days) I've been in the process of cleaning and oranizing my place, and, while it looks a hundred times better and I AM glad to have dusted and vacuumed, it feels somewhat foreign and uncomfortable to me now.
So, I'm curious, are y'all a bunch of disorganized slobs like me? Neat freaks? Middle-of-the-road types? How tidy are you?
I'm pretty disorganized. My room isn't dirty; I keep all my clothes in a dresser or a hamper and my trash in a bin. However, my basic setup is that I have a desk that I hardly use covered with doodles, different pairs of headphones, whether functional or not, school notes, and my eclectic items of decoration.Then, between my desk and my bed is a chair, which I keep all my jackets, which there are a lot of, in a pile, as well as my backpack. The really messy area is around my bed. I keep my laptop and my tablet on my nightstand, but around my bed are my violin, my stand, my sheet music, more doodles, notebooks, and lots of other shit. All my schoolwork is basically just thrown in my backpack; I have binders, but I hardly use them properly. The only organized binder I have is the one I keep all my drawings in.
I'm not sure if my disorganization has anything to do with being creative so much as that I don't feel like it's a problem. I never lose shit, I'm just not careful in where I put it.
