You know that feeling when you sit on your bed, look around the room and suddenly go: "What's that smell?! Oh yeah right, that's just my apartment." I had that exact realization yesterday morning after I had arrived in Vienna again and quickly decided to do something about it.
STEP ❶ Tie your hair together!
'Cause no bun, no fun! Ha!.. :)
STEP ❷ Start the cleaning process!
And believe you me, that took some time. To motivate myself, actually. However, I really must say, the endless repetition of Tina Turner's Best Of Playlist on Youtube really got me goin'!
First, I had to sort out everything I didn't need anymore and devided my stuff into two basic piles: TRASH and KEEP. (And no mum,- if you're reading this- the picture above is not a portrayal of my apartment's permanent condition. The picture was taken during the cleaning process.) :)
Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of myself lying on the floor sweating and crying before, during and after the cleaning process- (which took me almost 6 hours by the way), which would have been quite funny in retrospect.. But whatever. Maybe next time.
STEP ❸ Finish! And take pictures of the finished work to prove to your parents and the world that you are not such a messy person after all!
6 hours later I was exhausted but happy. I decided to reward myself with a lovely meal, some freshly squeezed orange juice and some flowers from the supermarket around the corner.
While rewatching season 6 episodes of SATC I fell asleep drooling on my pyjamas out of sheer exertion and tiredness. :)
