my room is never clean, except during exam times. Just before the exams, I have this urge to clean my room. In my mind, I have a unique place assigned to each and every item that I own in my room. But, almost all the time, none of these items are there where they are supposed to be, and for this, i have my own version of Murphys law: “If I want some item badly, I will never get it. It will show up sometime when I absolutely do not need it, or when I have forgotten that I need that item!”.
But, come exam time, I like my room, as clean as a clean room in a fabrication company :-D. I just cannot start studying, if there are clothes lying on my chair or the bed, my locker is a mess, and my table has books/notes/note-books/photocopies/loose papers on just about all the courses I have taken in the semester. Just so that, I study and pass the exams, I have to start a clean-up drive everytime, just 2 days before the exam.
On saturday, when I finally started cleaning my room, I called the “room-clean guys to work on my room. When that guy entered the room, his first comment (translated into english by me) was “How do you even manage to spend a minute in this room!”. I was pretty angry at him. Agreed, my room was a mess, but who was he to comment, and that too comment so sarcastically. So with a superior air, I told him (again translated to english):“Quietly do your job”. Well, he found a couple of spiders in my room!
After the room clean guy went, I got to my job. Stacked up the clothes in the laundry bag, cleaned the mess on my table, put new pillow covers and bed-spreads, and finally, this is how my room looked:
