When asked about what defines my personal space, I am more inclined to ask myself, who am I? Because who I am is what defines my personal space.
I am a woman of many interests.
Firstly, my personal space is filled with books because I love to read. So much so, I am out of room. I have since turned to using a Kindle, but now I have two of them. It used to be three, but I broke one. I also have the Kindle app for my tablet and my laptop. You could say that I just can’t get enough books!
Secondly, my personal space is filled with technology…three laptops, a tablet, and the aforementioned Kindles. Not to mention a huge flat screen television, a blue ray disc player and a tape player. Also amidst all this is a cd player, a couple of mp3 players and a gaggle of accessories. Now I don’t use all of them at the same time, but I do use them. Sometimes I think I will go out of my mind with all this technology.
Thirdly, my personal space is filled with camera equipment. While there isn’t as much of it right now because I am just getting started, I still need to have it out to remind me to use it. Sometimes I get so caught up in all of my personal space that I forget that I need to go outside and take photos. Take today for example. The bridge near my home is being shut down for a year. I’ve been saying all weekend I need to go out and take photos. I finally went out this afternoon, but my camera died on me. If I had been more proactive, I would have checked everything before I walked over there. Now I have to wait until I rest a bit before I can go back and take photos I should have taken earlier.
Fourthly, my personal space is filled with gobs of research and inspiration reading materials. Have I gone through any of them yet. No! I just keep buying more in the hopes that I will, in fact, one day sit down and go through them to find something to write about.
Fifthly, my personal space is filled with crafts including yarn for several baby blankets. I really need to finish these as I have more to make and I can’t move forward until those are done. I guess I know what I am doing tomorrow!
And lastly, I have drawers filled with movies that make me happy. At this stage in my life, it is all about making me happy. I find comfort in the littlest things. If it comes in the form of a movie, I probably have it. I’ve seen many and buy the ones that I really have to watch more than once. So, if anyone is ever looking to get me a present, just ask me about some of my favorite movies and if I own it or not. These will always be a hit in my book.
My list of interests is great and I could probably write a book on them. But these will suffice for now as they truly define my personal space. For the most part, I am an introvert and tend to do things that are solitary in nature. While I do love to go out and be social from time to time, I tend to do things curled up in my space and enjoy my solitude. It helps me to recharge so I can go out and face the world.
Wishing you moments to enjoy your personal space!

I can so identify with all you have, Susan, except the gadgets. I have one Kindle and one laptop – but the books, and research material and all the to-do projects sound familiar!
My space is filled from floor to ceiling, with music. It feels strange to say that right now, because my room is silent. You see, we are having storms and I like listen to the thunder…
Your space is brimming. This is a good thing. I got the impression you were writing this from a happy place.
