This week, I will be writing about why the washroom is so filthy and why I live like a slob. Both of these can be traced back to laziness. However, I would like to talk about each individually because both cases are slightly different.
The reason the washroom is so filthy is because of several reasons. One is I have built up a mentality that I only use that washroom. I am usually the only one who uses that particular washroom on a daily basis. This makes me feel I don’t need to clean the washroom as often the downstairs washroom. Whenever I use the downstairs washroom, I make sure I clean it thoroughly. The reason for this is because I know someone will most likely use the downstairs washroom the same day or a few seconds after I leave. After enough time passes, I become lazy and since no one complains about the washroom, it is left unclean. Another reason the washroom is so filthy is because I don’t look underneath the toilet seat. On most occasions, I have the toilet seat down. When the toilet seat is down, I can’t see the mess, and because of this I mentally trick myself in believing there is no mess.
The reason why I live like a slob is similar to why the washroom is filth. The reason being, I have built up a mentality that this is my room. However, unlike the washroom, this mentality is even stronger when it comes to my room. My room makes me feel safe and secure (especially my bed). Because of this, I feel like no one will judge me for how I spend my time in this room. Since this is not the case, I will explain why I do certain things in my room. First off my desk, although it might seem like an utter mess, it is organized in a sense. The bottom right corner Is for clothes, the right side of the right speaker is for binders, on top of the binders is for papers, and there are plenty of other locations I have for specific stuff. Just because everything isn’t prim, proper, and squared (an example of this is a stack of papers all perfectly stacked in alphabetical order) doesn’t mean its a senseless mess. You may ask why I don’t make the desk prim, proper, and squared, that’s because I know in less than a week it will go back to being an organized mess. After so long, I have come to the realization it’s not worth spending the energy if I can work just as efficiently when the desk is not prim, proper, and squared. Another thing I get a lot of complaints about or the pants and socks on the floor. You may ask why don’t I pick them up and put them in the laundry bin. The thing is though, I like to reuse my clothes. In my mind, I rather reuse already dirty clothes than get clean ones and those make it dirty as well. This especially true when I have fewer shorts than days before laundry day comes around (informal way of saying “I don’t have enough pants to make to laundry day if I wear one pair of pants per day”). Again you may ask why I don’t hang them up in an organized fashion? Well in my eye, its a waste of energy. For example, I could come home after dim sum, take off my pants, pick up my pants, hang my pants, put on pajamas, get called for an outdoor activity (walking, biking, etc), take off my pajamas, pick up my pajamas, hang my pajamas, and put my pants back on. On the other hand, I could come home after dim sum, take off my pants, put on pajamas, get called for an outdoor activity, take off my pajamas, and put my pants back on. One of these options definitely contains more steps than the other, and fewer steps mean less energy expended. And no, I don’t leave the pants overnight, I put them in the laundry bin after my shower. I could probably give an explanation to why everything in my room is the way it is, however, I don’t what this blog to be really long. Also, just because I live like a pig in private, doesn’t mean I act like one in public. In school, I always show up to class early (even first period, even when I leave at 9:50 I’m never late), clean up after myself in the cafeteria, keep my laptop organized when it comes to school work, and when I did get homework I actually finished it.
In the end, I am entirely responsible for why the washroom is so dirty. However, I believe I have justified reasons to why I live the way I do. Overall, I will try my best to keep the washroom clean from now on and live up to my family standard of how a room should be.
