    Chaos

    2
    my house is generally pretty cluttered I admit I'm not a good housekeeper but I am very overwhelmed by the chaos that has resulted from mom's passing. Most of her things are here despite the fact she hadn't lived with me for probably almost a year.

    I've pretty much accepted that at nearly 26 years old I will never again have a boyfriend, I will never work full time again, I will never move out. And rather than be depressed I've just accepted this. It'll just be easier that way. Lonely, but easy. And I have my family anyway
