Top 500 Feelings - #357 Finishing a Room-Clean
It’s tough to stay on top of your game when half your wardrobe is piled on top of your desk. You feel dirty, and rightfully so. You wake up every morning and tell yourself that you’re going to put the clothes away that day, but then the time comes and you don’t stick to the plan. The cycle continues this way for weeks, and usually doesn't end until one of your roommates’ parents are coming up for the weekend. Then it’s time for a Spit Shine. Maybe the rarity of the cleanliness contributes to the quality of the feeling, and maybe it just feels good to be able to walk on your floor instead of your flannels. Whatever the reason is, you know you’re in for a good night when the pad is freshly clean. You can use all the space that is rightfully yours and you find things in the right places. It won’t be like this for long, so cherish it. Invite people to chill in your room during the pregame. They’ll be impressed. You may even bump the feeling up a little bit if you get a compliment on your fresh room. It’s hard to top having your hard work be appreciated. Get a little extra swag in that outfit you're wearing. After all, you just took it out of your dresser, not off of your floor.
