More joy

phoenixalpha called to let me know that it's time again for our annual apartment inspection. Yippee. This time I'll remember to keep the laptop off the floor so I don't step on it while cleaning. Fortunately, the apartment isn't as disorderly and messy as it was last year, thanks partly to Scott being on Melody's case about getting her room and the kitchen squared away. They're going to tidy up the rest of the apartment while I concentrate on my room and its attached bathroom; not such a big deal. I basically have to pick things up and stash them in storage boxes, hang up clothes, throw out some trash and vacuum, which shouldn't take too long.

Still, it's a pain in the butt.

You're lucky. i have apartment inspections every month. And since my lazy roommates don't mind living in a messy and filthy apartment, I'm the one stuck with all the cleaning.

Well, today I was being passive aggressive by interrupting everyone's afternoon siesta with loud vacuuming.

You could be even more vindictive and take after my ex, who was occasionally given to cleaning frenzies around 10 PM on weeknights. Still, you're right; they could be coming through every month, and there's really no excuse for not picking up as I go along. I could use more shelving, but who couldn't?

Hmmm. Vacuuming after 10PM? not a bad idea. One of my Ukrainian friends keeps complaining about loud vacuuming upstairs after 1AM. So late night vacuuming in this apartment complex doesn't seem to be all that rare...

Well, my apartment mates promised to do all the cleaning next month. I don't really hate cleaning so much; I often like to vacuum and scrub when I'm stressed. The trivial activity relieves the stress of studying.
