Like I had mentioned in my last post, Balance, that is one thing I have struggled with this week when it comes to my home. It is a MESS.
Winter break started roughly two weeks ago, but I stayed on campus so that I could make some extra money by picking up some hours. I know you’re shocked, I gave up two weeks of a month vacation from school to work?!?!? Yeah don’t be shocked It’s called adulting and being financially responsible.
So for the last two weeks I have been working more than I have in about two weeks. 9-5 days, which I know isn’t that bad and completely doable. But when most of your structure is based around academics and work comes second, it is a little rough getting back into the opposite routine. I have been a little more tired in the evenings, me 24/7 as is, but I have had zero motivation to clean.
By that I mean, I have so much laundry, strewn pieces of clean clothes from picking out outfits, and some empty food containers because I haven’t been setting myself up to cook. Obviously this is my own fault, but it’s how life gets sometimes.
The reason I am even admitting that I have been messy and disorganized is because it’s reality. I can destroy my living space in such a small amount of time because I get so focused on other things in life. This may seem really unhealthy and unbalanced, but honestly I love cleaning days.
Today I had the motivation to clean, probably because it’s the weekend and my break, and it was therapeutic. I feel so silly saying this, but it is one of the most satisfying things when you organize and clean your living space/ and reflect on the past weeks. I play music, have Youtube on auto play in the back, and clean my little heart out.
Moral of this rambled post is that it is okay to be disorganized at times and focus on the tasks at hand. As long as at the end of the day, or week, that you are aware of what you are doing. I am not promoting an unorganized life style I am just pointing out that life gets BUSY and it is okay to not always live a perfect cookie cutter life, that’s not real. And like many of my friends, we’re all young adults, learning what works for us, and trying to maintain our busy schedules.
