Redecorating my room!

I've been doing a lot of spring cleaning these last few weeks.  I'm redecorating my room and already I've painted my walls a lighter shade of pink (girly I know but hey I like it). I've sorted my closet out (I had/have a lot of old school papers in there). Sorted my bookcase (which I need a new better looking one) and bought a new queen sized bed (an upgrade from the old twin bed I've been using since elementary school).  The bed came today and already my room is looking classier!  Next step is new window treatments and to change my dresser, nightstand and desk to match my bed which is white and all my old furniture is wood.  It'll be a long process since I've already almost used up all the money I made on my temp job at the embassy.  I need to get a new job soon to help supplement my redesigning needs!!  

One thing I realized when sorting out my room is that manga is a really messy hobby.><  If I didn't own as much manga as I do, I'd have a heck of a lot more space in my closet, drawers and storage bins.  Seriously! When I'm rich, I'm going to have one room in my house just filled with bookshelves of manga.  It'll look like a Japanese bookstore for sure!  And this is after I already threw away the manga I know I probably won't read anymore.><

I think Japan turned me girly.  Well, either that, or I just became more mature in Japan.   Living there, I started to have more feminine taste in clothes, jewlery, shoes, etc.  If I grew up there, I probably would've been like my students wearing makeup and high heels whenever I was out of uniform.  Now, I find I'm not only into fashion (also thanks to Gossip Girl) but home design/decor.  Really! I love reading my mom's Better Homes and Garden magazine and looking at the pictures. I don't know...guess I'm just growing up.:p

Congrats on the redesigned room! Sounds really nice so far! And yes, manga is a really messy hobby. I keep finding random volumes all around the house. It's everywhere!

Thanks!! I just ordered the mattress yesterday but won't be delivered until Thursday. Hope the bed is as comfortable as it looks. ^O^

I wish we had a Book Off or Kbooks or some Japanese used book store around here where I could just sell back my books. Then I wouldn't have to feel bad about throwing them away and I could earn money at the same time.;p
