He was waiting patiently for me to notice him. He would repeatedly send me the same message; looks on the outside is not what is important but rather it is the inside that counts the most. The last time I got into contact with him was about fifteen years ago when I graduated from high school. (Please do not even think of doing the math)
I kept pushing him away as much as possible because I had no time or room for him. Horrible, I know. He is not attractive at all. He is boring, dull, bland, frail and old. What can I say? He just is not my type. His dimensions are 18” x 16” x 13”. His full name is Organize Later. He lives deep in the back corner of my closet.
It was when I moved back to home sweet home San Francisco that I gave in and decided to give him a chance. I had forgotten what valuable assets he had in store for me. Asset #1: The matching shirt that I bought with my ‘clique’ in high school, which at the time made me look insanely hot. Or so I thought. Asset #2: Baby blue colored infant clothes with gray elephants and yellow balloons all over. 100% cotton, size 6-12 months. My younger brother, which I am like a second mother to since we are about a decade apart, used to wear this. I kept this because just seeing this brings me back to fond memories of changing his diapers and losing sleep over his crying throughout the night. He was cute as a button. Asset #3: Pastel purple cardigan with fruit shaped buttons handmade especially for me by my grandmother. It feels like yesterday that I was with my grandparents at the park near their house. They sat on the bench together as they watched me play on the swing. I miss them both dearly. As I sat on the floor, surrounded by my timeless assets, one question came to mind. Is there another way to preserve these valuables instead of leaving this job to Organize Later? It was at that moment when I was holding the pastel purple cardigan tight in my arms that Needle Happy became a profound creation in 2011.
