Post-Semester Cleaning

Finally, the time has come… Yes, as the title says it all, I’ve taken today as cleaning day!!! When probably I should be cleaning my place much more frequently, but what can I say, it gets really hard to juggle having to go to uni and cleaning my own place (and maybe laziness took over me most of the time). I say this because doing studying full-time is like having an occupation, or even worse. At least when you’re working, you get to leave the work at its place when it’s the weekend (of course, depending on your job). However, when you’re studying, you bring it with you at home and in your mind at ALL times. Back in my architecture days, it is often we joke that the work-load consumes us (but trust me, deep inside, we all know it’s not a joke. Now I have at least tried to organise my time better so that I get to separate ‘uni’ to ‘me’ time.

As messy as I am, not going to lie or deny it, when I clean…I CLEAN! It’s really hard to stop just half way, or if it’s not fully clean. My method of cleaning is to do it in parts, makes it easier and you can see the progress (makes me happier knowing I’ve done something!). I like to divide it between the kitchen, study desk, living room, bathroom and bedroom. Dividing it into sections can also make it easier, and if you don’t get it done in one day, it’s easy to know what you’ve done and where to continue. So far I’ve done all my living space, and have the bathroom and bedroom left!

Can’t wait until my bed is this neat and fresh again!

As much as I try to be organised, I am one of those people that could not really get everything so neat or orderly (or maybe it’s just me?). I find it really difficult to ‘put things away’, as I like to have things that I use frequently in front of me. I believe that if I don’t, I tend to forget where I have stored it and I would probably not touch it for a very long time. So, whenever someone points out how messy I am, I like to believe that I am just an organised mess, and yes, I know where everything is! I used to believe that the clutter is what gives me inspiration daily, but now I do think the neatness gives me some clarity in my mind. It does feel good and fresh when things are in the right place and not everywhere (I used to hop around the space, you can imagine).

Do let me know any tips of keeping your space clean and organised (scheduling, furnitures, layouts, anything)!

Hi! I’m a 20-something Sydney-sider who’s trying to figure out her life one step at a time. I’m an ex-architecture student (but forever architect at heart) and is currently pursuing my studies in Commerce, and yes… it’s entirely different. I am all about experimenting and trying new things, which I find is the best way to enrich myself starting from this young age. Like any other in their 20s, life is like a puzzle and everyday is just about trying to survive and figure out what it’s all about! So, the posts you find here would probably be about the exciting things I encounter and the struggles I go through, hoping it’ll help someone out there (or at least be relatable so that they know someone else is experiencing it too).
