This may be a little bit of a silly question, but do your possessions ever make you claustrophobic? Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by all the things that I have and just get a desperate need to have them gone.

I’m graduating from university this summer, which got me to thinking about some of my teachers from when I first started secondary school (~aged 11) and one of them had a real impact on me; I really looked up to her at a time when I hated school, and she really inspired me in the subject that she taught, I won’t lie,… Read more
