It’s not that my place is a dump or uber nice like your stereotypical bachelor pad (depends on the kind of bachelor you know); it’s neither. The problem is that I’m often busy and/or lazy (the latter applies most of the time). So my place isn’t always the nicest, but it’s livable (and I use that word loosely).
My apartment isn’t disorderly nor is it in order, but it’s something you would expect of a 20-something year old single male living in a metropolitan area. I’m not always home and when I am, I’m often distracted by something that needs attention. Like my cat (Hi Quigley!), for example. The problem is that I’m not home enough to properly take care of it. When I am, it’s usually after a long, hard day or week and the last thing I want to do are the chores.
Kitchen is my number one disaster area. The problem is that I love to cook. Cooking always entails dishes. Dishes that end up in the sink and often times wait up to 3 weeks before they’re washed. It’s bad; really bad. I do not like doing dishes. It’s a fact that is well known and can be verified by my former girlfriends. But on the bright side, I’m a decent cook.
The bathroom, often considered a bio-hazard zone, is surprisingly…alright, who am I kidding? As bad as the bathroom can be, the worse part is my sink. It’s covered in my weekly shavings of my feeble and abandoned attempts in growing a beard. However, I’m not the only contributor to the mess that is my bathroom. It’s shared with my cat, Quigley. Unfortunately, he doesn’t clean after himself.
Speaking of cat, this little stinker sheds enough fur to mold another cat. Floor? Cat hair. Bed? Cat hair. Couch? Cat hair. My dinner? You get the idea.
Anyways, last night I finally cleaned my apartment thoroughly for the first time in 3 months. Every inch of my apartment was swept, mopped and sanitized. It’s actually suitable to have guests again. Not to mention, after living in my apartment for almost a year, I finally cleaned up and set up my sun room. All in all, this apartment is presentable (again).
So, who wants to come over?
