What my room looked like as a teenager

When I tell people I’m a professional organizer, one of the first questions I’m often asked is, “Have you always been organized?”  I certainly have been, but as you can see here, I wasn’t immune to the occasional messy flare-up!  This picture was taken in the mid 1990s.  I had just returned from a trip and my bag had seemingly exploded all over my room.  In the days following a big trip even now, the scene is similar.  Thought you’d chuckle at this glimpse into the early years. Note the U2 poster on the wall!
