THE FORGOTTEN DRAWER.

January 30th, 2017

Proof that I should have less stuff.

When I moved into this flat, in the summer of 2015, I placed this writing desk into the living room, although I used to keep it in the bedroom of the old flat.

That means that, of course, I kept lots of stuff in it, but having it in a different room, I completely forgot about the things I stored here.

Here is what I found.

Before I properly get into it, let me say that I spared you from seeing lots of coins, bobby pins, markers, old brushes and stuff like that… I focused on the good stuff.

The first thing I’ve noticed, in one of the tiny drawers of the writing desk, were these photos. Two of me and my brother together, and two of just me.

Fun fact: I was a massive tomboy growing up, to the point that in elementary school I didn’t want to go to class because kids made fun of my interest in bugs and “toys for boys” rather than dolls and cutesy stuff.

I remember one day I was in English class, I was around 10 years old, maybe, and the teacher asked us to write a letter to Santa. I asked for an RV plane, and after we were all done writing she picked a few to read. She called me out saying: “Marzia, you know this is supposed to be what you want for Christmas, right?”

I was so confused, and asked if I had done something wrong. She made a remark on my taste of toys and asked why I was so “boy-ish” in front of everyone. I run out of the room and hid in the bathroom, crying, till a friend came to say that it was cool of me to pick something like that. I went home and asked my mom to never go back to school again.

Obviously, I got over it and kept going to school, but I wish I could tell my younger self that still – to this day – I love RC stuff, and it’s totally cool, and there is nothing to be ashamed of for liking things that aren’t considered “girly”.

Moving on, the next stuff I found, which surprised me a bit, was a bunch of brochures from my trip to New Orleans (from yeeeeears ago), a ticket from Japan, and a bag of sugar (I used to collect sugar, back in the day 😉 ).

If you didn’t know, 3 summers ago, Felix and I went to New Orleans and met up with Bunny for the first time. Such a wonderful holiday, and seeing these made me miss her!

If you don’t know who I’m referring to, look up Grav3yardGirl on Youtube.

I also found some adorable hair ties and ribbons. I believe I got the bear shaped ones from my trip to South Korea in April 2015!

Of course there was also some random stuff in there, like matches, band-aids, tissues… and dog toothpaste. Hahahahah.

Amazingly, I grabbed this box, and found some jewellery inside. It’s from Mr. Kate (her designs are so pretty) and in here there were these 3 tiny ear cuffs. Love them!

But now we begin with the “beauty” stuff. First in the list: these eyelashes.

I cannot remember why I got them, since I don’t often wear falsies, and if I do, they look way more natural then these, but I do really like the corner ones, so maybe I will just give the other pair to Emma.

Oh my! After all this time, now I finally know where my nail polish collection was!

Well, I’m glad I found it.

Also, notice how most polish tops are chewed. Thank you Edgar.

Since there was so much makeup, I grouped it into two: above is the liquid one. I can’t believe I had so much great stuff just hiding in this drawer. I’m hoping I can still use it – you know, usually makeup, especially liquids, have an expiry date, but these are all such great things! I will have to check all of them. *fingercrossed*

And here is the rest. I have some Tarte products, Meme eyeshadows, an Elf Palette, random eyeliners ad blushes, a chubby lip pencil, and crazy eyeshadow colours.

Can you believe how much stuff I had in the drawer?! Did anything like this ever happen to you? To just forget about something and find it years later? Let me know!

 

Marzia.

    Hey Marzia! First, thanks for sharing all this cool stuff that was forgotten, second I’m from New Orleans and I usually have a mess in my room so last year I made a huge cleanup and found lots of things I thought were lost forever, anyway just wanted to tell you that as a boy I used to like playing with barbies (all my classmates used to laugh at me because of that but I didn’t care for long) even though I kinda wanted to destroy them rather than play tea parties with them 🤣🤣
    So just wanted to share something with you and thank you for sharing!

    Ciao Marzia! I’ve been watching yours and felix’s videos forever now. You guys, being from different countries, have shaped me to be the person i am. I have always wanted to visit your home countries, and learn the local language. It has always been a dream to learn Italian and visit Italy. With my school, this May I’m taking a trip to Switzerland and Italy! I’ve been prepping by learning some Italiano… but I still am going into this with no knowledge of the culture. I’m asking what Italy is like, and how the culture is. I just don’t know what clothes to bring! I would love your two-sense! Grazie! Arrivederci!

    Primary school can have a strong impact. Your friend seem very nice to come to you and support you 🙂
    Having a close bond with my brother at a young age we used to play with cars and stuffed animals. It went both ways and the two of us have experiences where we were made fun of at a young age.
    The good from these is that you can realize that you don’t need to be or act like everyone else to be happy. It can help you walk your own path as long as you don’t forget that you can be loved for who you are ❤

    i love it when you find random stuff you forgot about 🙂 I found some old clothes from my late teens the other day when unpacking from moving house and I didn’t realise I’d still kept them (I was in desperate need of a wardrobe clear out!) – and luckily they still fit cus I’m quite small built and always have been. One was a tshirt i’d got from Spain in the Basque Country with a picture of a mouse on it next to a piece of cheese and the words ‘yummi yummi’ on it (which made me laugh at the time i’d brought it) – i’d thought i’d given it to charity but i’m actually really glad I didn’t cause that shirt has some good memories of an awesome place

    I really love how you enjoy find your stuff. Because me too. I and my friends love to find and read old things in our basement. I think, if you like you could try to write a letter to 5 years in furture Fellix or you. That will be fun.
    I and my friends have done that. And we all laughed about old memories we had written in the letters after we read it.

    Definitely happened to me.

    My dad had passed away and I found a card from him when I hadn’t been able to see him. It was long and worded about how much he missed me and I kind of think I was meant to find it when I did.

    My late mother’s stuff was passed down to me when I turned 14. Not exactly a drawer, but it was definitely an emotional reunion with who my mother was. Smell is the most dominant sense in regards to memory, so seeing and smelling her perfumes made it seem like she was there. I also found letters she wrote to a close friend, lip sticks, and pictures of me and my bother. The forgotten drawer sometimes mirror the smallest corners of our heart.

    Hi Marzia!
    When I was six years old my most beloved thing in the entire world was mye Tamagotchi. I kept it in my right pocket at all times, but one day I couldn’t find it. Btw, I used to keep it only in my right pocket, and I have no idea why. I was devastated and I searched for it “everywhere”. Four years later, my mom found it in my left pocket on my rain coat. So silly, haha.

    I love your blog! Xxx
