    So cool how you described aspects of your childhood while describing how where you’re from shaped you. Also I can totally relate to the political arguments.

    I just think this post is brilliant. Finesse is an underrated word and often misused. I completely agree with the way you defined it.

    • Dear Allie,
      I am fascinated by your post “The Psychology of Clutter” because even though I am no longer a teen, I have never figured out how to manage my tendency to clutter. My living space always is cluttered, but I don’t ever want to get to the point that I am actually a hoarder.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is where you said, “there are four types of clutter: technical,behavioral, a result of life changes and the cause of poor time management.” I think this is important because saying that poor time management is in fact a valid reason for clutter means that I’m not a hoarder, and that if I had more time I would be more organized.

      Another sentence that stood out to me is where you said that teenagers are notorious for dirty rooms. I actually think this is a human tendency and not just a teen thing, especially when you see it as a matter of time management. Sometimes what I need is not to think any more, and putting things away requires thinking so I procrastinate.

      Thanks for your writing. You made me think more deeply about this issue!
