I always tell my roommates that the clean-up is easier when we know how we’re going to do it. However, it’s not always as clear-cut as that. While it’s easy to say “I’ll start it tomorrow,” it’s often not that easy to make that clear to someone who isn’t exactly on board.
When you’re living together with roommates, both you and your roommates need to be on the same page about your cleaning schedule. And when you’re not, it can be very difficult to keep it. For example, if you’re both a slob and you’re both not the best at cleaning, then things can get pretty messy. You can definitely make things messier by starting a mess, but you have to make sure you both know how you plan to keep things clean.
When we look at the way cleaning is organized in this apartment, the one thing that jumps out is that it is organized in a way that makes it clear whether you dont want to clean or not. This makes a huge difference, because if roommates think that theyre both on the same page about their cleaning, then they can both still make sure things are clean.
To break it down… When it comes to roommates, we are talking about people who have shared a room for more than a few months. For most people this means they’re either dating or dating someone else. It also means you have to remember to check on each other. It’s easy enough to tell if someone is “just having sex” or if they’ve been having a “very intense” relationship for a while.
Its also easy to tell if someone is just friends, not going out, or if theyve just been dumped. But if theyve been dating someone for a while, and youve been checking in with them multiple times a day, that means theyve been dating someone for a while, and youve been checking in with them many times a day.
It’s hard to think of another human interaction that’s so closely tied to our everyday actions. We all have relationships and friendships and we all need to know when to check in with each other.
I think I have one of the best roommates, but I also have one of the worst. I haven’t exactly had a clean house in years, but I’ve been cleaning a lot more lately. I still have a way to go with that though.
It can be really hard to stop and just clean.
We’ve all been in this position in which we ask ourselves, “What would I have done if I hadn’t had this roommate?” When I started college I was living with two roommates: my best friend and my dormmate. They were about the same age, and we all shared the same dorm room. We all had the same group of friends, and we also all lived together.
Sometimes, cleaning isn’t so bad. But more often than not, it’s a full-time, job.
