Taylor Swift updated her Myspace blog: While I was in LA, my mom re-arranged my bathroom.. When I left for LA, my way of storing all of my make up and hair products was to pile it all on my bathroom counter. Most of it was grouped together in a very organized system (the pile). That’s not to say the system was not flawed.
There was one tiny, insignificant recurring problem.. If you pulled one thing out of the middle of the pile, It would create a giant avalanche of lip gloss and eye shadow and other various cosmetics (sometimes a container of powder, which was undoubtedly left halfway closed- SO much fun to clean up!).
I was fine with my system. 17% of the time, it worked perfectly without disastrous results. I wasn’t going to complain about it because whining isn’t really my thing, and I didn’t have time to create another system (this takes planning and brainstorming!).
So my bathroom has stayed the same terrible mess of piled up beauty products for two years.. while I traveled the world with the sad, unorganized state of my bathroom perpetually weighing in the the back of my conscience. Then suddenly.. EVERYTHING changed.I came back from LA and discovered a whole new world My bathroom is now
a magical, wondrous place with cabinets for storing make up and hooks
on the door for holding scarves. There are even drawers for my hair
brushes and incredible little shelves for my towels!
There’s a new
shower curtain in place of the one I’ve had since 7th grade (the one
that has always secretly creeped me out a little, because it’s all
these people standing around and it really looks like they’re watching
Which was weird. I never liked them, and I’m glad they’re gone.)
There are little windows in one of the dressers, and through it, I can
see the candles I used to have stashed randomly on the counter. Now
they have their perfect little home, all gathered together in their
tiny, organized sanctuary. But then I turned around and was startled by
something.. Where was my Britney Spears poster.. No, this can’t be
right… WHERE is it?!? I searched the room frantically for a few
seconds before finding it’s new spot.
My Britney Spears poster (from
6th grade) had been relocated to my bedroom, which is another AMAZING
upgrade. This way, I see it more often and it more proudly displays my
unwavering devotion to Britney Spears. My jewelry has been neatly
placed into these little jewelry containers that separate your
necklaces so they don’t get tangled into a huge unrecognizable,
ball that is IMPOSSIBLE to untangle.
That used to happen to me all the
time, but NOW it’s preventable! Also, I found so many things that went
missing over the years.. The most notable find would have to be my
glasses. I couldn’t believe it, but there they were! Apparently they
had been lost somewhere in the giant pile of cosmetic doom.. I
eventually gave up the search after a few weeks. Now they’re back! The
moral of the story is..
My mom is wonderful and we apparently share
the same hobby: Compulsively organizing and straightening up around the
house whenever we’re bored.
I can’t wait to tell you all about LA and my life-changing guest
appearance on CSI. Basically.. When I’m really old and can only
remember one story about my life to go back and relive, and tell over
and over and over again to the point where my grandchildren roll their
eyes and leave the room..
That’s the story. Ah, I can see it now. ‘You know, when I was a youngster, I got to guest star on CSI! It was
marvelous! So marvelous, it was!’
It was that good.
I’ll tell you all about the rest. I love you with all my heart.
