“having visitors is a great motivator to clean up”, i typed in an IM session with my cousin Jessica. i am embarrassed to admit this but my conscious desire to always keep my personal space clean and orderly is on the losing end of the battle against my unconscious will for high entropy and chaos. if i were to rate my room’s orderliness from 1 to 10, 10 being in complete order, i would have given it a 6. so for the past several days i have divided my room into three major areas in which a purge and order was executed. in two days, two of my friends are coming to crash before continuing on their trip back to Oregon. i’m not sure if they will step into my room, but at least its becoming at least a 9 on my scale.
