I finally got around to cleaning my bathroom tonight. Yeah, it’s supposed to be clean when you move in, but UBC Housekeeping being the joke it is, my bathroom wasn’t exactly sparking clean.
It took me half an hour to clean everything, except the tub which will take some time. I even did the bathroom floor, which needed the most work. I feel good that I cleaned as thoroughly as I did. There’s something satisfying about knowing you cleaned your bathroom. From now on, any mess I make in there will be my own. You always feel more comfortable knowing you made something dirty rather than wondering where that came from.
Next on my list is the kitchen. It’s fairly clean already, but it still needs some work here and there. The big thing will be the kitchen floor. It’s not gross or anything, but it needs a good sweep and a Swiffering.
I get the feeling the person who lived here before me wasn’t especially big on having a clean apartment. Something tells me that I should be thankful I didn’t see the apartment when they moved out. I guess housekeeping did some work, but not enough in my mind.
I don’t think I’ll feel totally comfortable in here for another few weeks. I’m not sure why exactly. It was kinda different at SJC. Even though at first I wasn’t comfortable with the people, it didn’t take very long for me to feel that my room was my home. I felt settled very quickly. I don’t feel that here for some reason.
Anyways, I’m off to do some other things.
