英語リスニング - 本文

Marion: My bedroom is very messy at the moment. I'm not too happy with it. I'm just looking around and trying to work myself up to actually cleaning it. Em, but I don't like cleaning my bedroom. Sometimes I like it when I tidy things up and I find things that I've forgotten that I had in the first place, that's quite nice, especially when you find maybe money or, I don't know, a voucher or something. That happened to me once that I found a voucher for a bookshop that a friend of mine had given me months before but I'd completely forgotten that I had it, so that was a nice surprise but generally, generally, it's not a good thing, is it, to clean your bedroom? At the moment, just looking around, there are so many things that I need to tidy up. I've got lots of, lots of books everywhere, in piles, in neat piles, but maybe too many piles, all over the floor, I think. Then I've got lots of newspapers and CDs, out of their, their covers, of course, because that would be too neat! Tapes, what else? I think the worst thing for me is all the paper that I tend to accumulate, notebooks, and printouts from work, and lesson plans, and ideas I have for other lessons, so that before I know it, there's a little paper mountain on my floor. So, usually I have one paper mountain and that's not so bad, but at the moment, I have three. That's not good at all. The thing with a paper mountain is it can take you absolutely hours to get through it, before you can sort it into one category or another, and I hate throwing things away. I think that's my problem. I'm a real pack-rat, I think people call them, or a hoarder. I tend to hoard things, so hoarding mean keeping things even though they're not really useful anymore. So, I'm a definite hoarder. I also have loads of photographs and boxes, and, my God, way too many things. I think maybe I'd better start cleaning.
