very psychologicals.

i have had similar feelings. my dad keeps bringing books i took to his house back in drips and drabs, i find them unbearable objects. ever since the kitchen renovation and electrics overhaul last year a lot of my things have been in boxes. then i had the bedroom painted, now i seem to have just become someone who has boxes with stuff in.

In my case, it feels like a reluctance to commit, as though I'm afraid that unpacking will potentially leave me exposed. Plus, I kind of like what happens when I do finally unpack a particular box, that sense of rediscovering what had been temporarily lost to me. I can see that these attitudes might seem messed up to others, but that doesn't stop me from assuming them.

when i get around to it, reopening a box is intriguing to me, too!

Lately I've been opening boxes, going through their contents, and then repacking them.
