Finally, some before and afters. Most of the time, I take some befores but never afters because I’m not satisfied with what I’ve done. An endless cycle.

But here we are. I live in a small bedrooms-off-a-long-hallway style apartment with no living room. But we have a little nook just big enough to fit a two person table and maybe two people. It’s one of the biggest problem areas of the place, a catch all for shit that later needs to be sorted through. You know the drill.

This is what I started out with. I also don’t have a closet in my room so that’s my closet. Clothes almost make it in there most of the time.

And twenty minutes got me this…

Clothes put away! Floor vacuumed! Table (almost) all cleared! And a candle has been lit! I would normally do the vacuuming last, but I felt like I was picking up too much dust and shuffling it around so it felt necessary. Also, I like to watch The Simpsons while doing pretty much anything, which explains the sudden appearance of my computer.

And after the final 20 minutes, I got this!

Hot damn does this feel good. I brought the table back down to it’s normal two person size and wiped it down. I also laid out the new rug I got today. I didn’t think it’d go there when I originally bought it, but I think I like the placement right now.

Not everything found a home just yet. Those two Trader Joe bags filled with clothes are now behind me in these pictures, out of view. They’re winter clothes that need to go to another place (they are not mine). They will soon be out of this apartment. I refuse to put them back where they were.

The place is also in a bit of transition period. Another person will most likely be joining us this summer (two to a room, no living room, yay), but then two people will be moving out, leaving just my significant other and I. It’s been  a while since it has been just the two of us. And we plan on turning this little nook into a reading nook. Already got my eyes all over this chair. Their bedroom will be turned into a living room.

And one last lil view of the area:

Next: Clean breakfast dishes and put away clothes that are all over my room.

Excuses are boring.

Some serious unfucking was done this day.

Not having lots of beers while cleaning helped. As did starting thinking I was doing 45/15s but actually did 20/10s. Eventually I got in the groove and just ignored the breaks until it was done to my satisfaction and then stopped.

Now how long will it last? The bathroom is next. Le sigh.

I unfucked my habitat. In fact, the best motivation is to invite your crush over for the evening. I’ve never cleaned my room so fast. And the best thing about it: After I was done, I realized again, how beautiful my room is. Thank you, UfYH

Ask UfYH: Airing Your Dirty Laundry

Q: Do you have any tips or advice for dealing with a major laundry crisis? Basically the situation is such that I have avoided my laundry for way too long. Now all of the dirty laundry is in the walk-in closet such that you can’t walk-in. I can start doing loads, but then I can’t put it away because there’s still too much pile-up to get into the closet.

The image is overwhelming; I keep avoiding…
