Mess Levels

You know that feeling when you get out of school, you get off work, and then it’s the weekend and you feel like you can do anything in the whole wide world? Like you have time for anything and everything?

Yeah. :love:

It’s been another stressful week. You can tell it’s been a stressful week by how my room resembles a disaster area. Later nights equal a bigger mess. It’s kind of like John Green’s puff level.

Shoes and things I have not unpacked from last weekend when I spent Thanksgiving at home with my family:

You know I’m stressed when the chair pile just grows and grows (and grows). It gets especially large when I have papers due. (I’m telling you, the puff!)

I’ll spare you the gory details of the mass of laundry in my closet that I’ve been putting off for days now. I (kind of) promise I’m not a (total) slob. Cleaning up after myself just has to take a backseat to uni work, well, most of the time.

Now that it’s December, I’ve been starting to think about what kind of resolutions I want to make for the coming year. I don’t usually concern myself with that kind of thing, but this year, I think it would be nice to do some sort of year-long project. So far, the only thing I’ve come up with is to blog every day for a year. That would definitely be cool, but I don’t think it’s even slightly practical. There’s not always time, or even always something to say.

I just thought of the craziest thing: a year without chocolate. Imagine the horror.

  1. Oh my god I have a chair pile too! Except now I’m sitting on my chair, but my other chair (my reading chair) has a pile. And my normal chair had a pile too, but the pile has moved to my bed. It’s a vicious circle. I wake up, put the clothes on my bed, when I go to bed, they go back on my chair. Maybe we should clean our rooms at least a bit this weekend… ~_~

    I feel like I can do heaps this weekend, just gotta jump into it. :B

    Also, I just put all my shoes in the rack at the front of the house. Putting them neatly is another matter. I should just put them nicely in the first place so I don’t end up ticking off my mum. D:

    1. I USED TO DO THE SAME THING. That was when I only had one chair in my room. Now that I have two, all that stuff just sits on my chair-pile chair. If someone ever wants to come over in the middle of the week, I usually have to ask for 20-60 minutes to get the place cleaned up so they will actually have a place to walk and sit. πŸ˜›

  2. You are not alone! I sit on a big blue yoga ball most of the time and my actual chair is covered with pajamas and purses. Whoops! I wonder if our mommies were this messy when they were our age, because almost every mommy I meet is clean and neat.

    How could you possibly think of a year without chocolate? GASP!!! That is blasphemy!

  3. I feel the same way about the weekends, BUT THEN I NEVER DO ANY OF THE THINGS I WANT/NEED TO GET DONE! Then the new week rolls around and things pile up for the next weekend, and so on and so on. I am loving that “Puff” thing! I never saw that video but now I’ll think of it anytime I think of this snowball effect. πŸ˜›

    I feel like I want to do something too for the year of 2012, something that will keep me motivated with my goals all year long, but like you, I’m having trouble thinking of anything! I would LOVE to blog everyday of the year, but it’s hard to imagine that I would have something interesting to say everyday. *sigh*

    Have a great day, and good luck getting your room cleaned up!

  4. :/ You’ve just reminded me how badly I need to get back to the momentous task of cleaning my room!
    I think New Year’s Resolutions are slightly over-rated. I mean, who actually manages to stick to those things? I stopped making any a couple of years ago, and it was wonderfully liberating! Except that now I feel aimless, a drifter…. I might end up taking some time over New Year’s to think of positive changes I’d like to make this year XD
