Tomorrow, I do a speech at the English speech club.
Could you proofread my speech script?
"I am a Hoarder"
Do you know the word "hoarder".
"Hoarders are people who lose the desire to throw away unneeded items." Wikipedia say.
This is the one of the hoarder's house. (I show the picture to the audience)
It's Gomi-Yashiki in Japanese.
Gomi means garbage. Yashiki means a castle.
This three-floor's building owner is a hoarder.
It's in Nagoya. So this owner isn't a poor.
Many hoarders are, if anything, rich.
Recently, it is said that hoarders are hoarding disorder. It's a kind of desease.
My house isn't gomi-yashiki at the moment.
But, sometimes my house is messy.
My husband always says "Throw away your things. You have too many things."
So I packed my things under the bed and in the closet.
There's no more space there.
I think I am a hoarder.
Aren't you a bit of hoarder?
Let's check it out!
1. You keep many plastic and paper bags.
2. You don't understand why anyone would throw away worn-out shoes.
3. You can't throw away old network cables and battery chargers.
4. You could never throw away a ticket from a concert, film, or sporting event.
5. You still have cassette tapes and records.
6. You think someday you use old clothe and make new one.
Do you think you are a bit hoarder?
I understand hoarders. But I don't want to be a hoarder.
I changed my mind.
"I can't my throw away my things."
"But I can sell them."
"Let's change my things to the money."
I had a good idea.
I began to sell my things on Yahoo auction.
I sold many things. Probably I sold about 1,000 items.
But still my closet and under the bed are full.
My habit of hoarding hasn't changed at all.
It's hard to change people's mind.
I don't like to tidy up.
When I hear "tidy up" ,I feel really bad.
But I have to change.
There is a book that I want to read.
The title is "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidy Up".
The author is Marie Kondo.
She was listed as one of Time's "100 most influential people" in 2015.
I would like to study about tiding up.
Thank you, Leigh.
I don't know how to use italki.
Your suggestion is very helpful.
I placed this script in the Notebook.
