The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

1. Throw away anything that doesn’t “spark joy.” “'Don’t just open up your closet and decide after a cursory glance that everything in it gives you a thrill…You must take each outfit in your hand.’ “

2. Skip the Container Store. "Do not buy organizing equipment—your home already has all the storage you need.”

3. Fold your clothes like sushi. “Fold everything into a long rectangle, then fold that in upon itself to make a smaller rectangle, and then roll that up into a tube, like a sushi roll. Set these upright in your drawers.”

4. Hang clothes in rainbow order. “Hang up anything that looks happier hung up, and arrange like with like, working from left to right, with dark, heavy clothing on the left…‘Organizing them by category helps them feel more comfortable and secure.’ ”

5. Thank your clothes. “Thank your stuff, it’s been working hard for you.”

6. Let your socks rest. “Socks bust their chops for you, and if you ball them up, they don’t get a chance to rest…'The socks and stockings stored in your drawer are essentially on holiday.’ ”

7. Get rid of papers. “'There is nothing more annoying than papers…After all, they will never spark joy, no matter how carefully you keep them.’ “

RebelCaptain AU || Superheros 

After Jyn’s mother, a super, was murdered by a shadow organization her scientist father used to be part of, the young girl ran off before she could be taken. Untrained in her super strength, Jyn struggles with maintaining stability. 

Cassian faced similar tragedy from the organization but is better in control of his telekinetic powers, thanks to finding a group of supers who took him in and gave him purpose. But if Cass gets overly emotional, the results can be catastrophic. So not only does Cassian suppress his powers, but his emotions as well

When information leaks that Jyn’s father is creating a device that can track all supers, making them vulnerable to the organization, Cass recruits the young woman in hopes of finding the scientist before he completes the machine. Although at first tense and awkward between the two, they quickly find a trust in one another. As they spend further time together, Jyn and Cass form a bond that can either be their ruin…or their salvation
