Since I travel a lot, I am always in this process of packing and unpacking. Some of my co-workers can pack the morning of a flight, but for me, it always takes me a few more hours than that. If I don’t take the time to pack, then I forget things.
Unpacking is my least favorite part of the whole travel thing. I get home and have a suitcase full of dirty clothes. This most recent return, I just took my whole suitcase into the laundry room where it still sits until I get around to actually doing my laundry.
My room is usually a mess for about a week after I get back from a show. Not only do I procrastinate my laundry, but I just end up strewing all the other contents of my suitcase all over my room sifting through its contents to get what I need, rather than putting everything in its place. I think having a separate “Packing Room” would help.
The rest of my house is really clean, but my room… I just can’t get it in order because it feels like I really am just living out of my suitcase.
