Journal – About Me April Challenge (Day 26)

Hey there, everybody!
How’s it going?! We’re almost the last days of March! I’m hoping that I’ll have finished to schedule these for y’all to read (or to skim through? or just to ignore, because let’s be honest, I write a lot and I must tire your eyes out, haha).

Day 26: Organized or messy?

What is organized and what is messy?! I don’t understand this prompt!


My room is the most disorganized EVER. It looks like the board of a Hidden Object Game.

My parents often tell me that I need to clean my room, but the problem is that when they do that, I just… lose all my motivation to do it? I like to take my time. “When I feel it’s time, it’s time! Don’t tell me what to do! I LOVE LIVING IN A PIGSTY! YOU WON’T TELL ME HOW TO LIVE!”

[It’s important to understand that this is one of the main reasons as to why I don’t invite people over. Ever. One of the other reasons is because I just don’t like you guys in my personal space]

Most of the time though, I procrastinate certain things, and when it reaches a certain level, I will say or think: “hm I’d much rather clean my room than do this.” So most of the time, my room is extremely messy, to certain people, but I swear that it has a certain order for me.


Ironically though, despite the state of my room, my OCD [I guess I have… “selective obsessive compulsive disorder” or a very low-key one? Or it’s just… me being neurotic] makes me seek out order.

I just happen to like consistency? I like to be as consistent as possible, in my work place, because the kids need consistency. I also like consistency in my books. I remember losing all trust and confidence in one textbook, just because it had so many typoes, and heading mistakes. It took me awhile to finish doing my readings because I couldn’t fathom publishing a book – A TEXTBOOK! – with mistakes in them.

It’s important to mention how I actually make a lot of typoes, and I am mortified when I find them afterwards, once they’ve been posted and maybe you readers have skimmed through them? In those moments, I can understand and forgive the typoes. It’s just so difficult, when it comes to a book, because editors had to go through that, and it’s their job?!


Fun anecdote: My classroom is sort of messy [in the sense where I have stacks of papers here and there and I tend to leave my notebook or my pen here and there, and the kids have taken the habit to bring them back to me automatically when they see them lying around?], but also pretty orderly [I don’t want my coworker, Altaria, to think I’m too messy so I make an effort to be as clean as possible. Oh and also I have to set an example to the kids… Oh and also because if the classroom is not clean, the kids could get germs, and they could be sick, and I don’t want them to]. I am scared that the kids will take after my bad cleaning habits.

…or that they tell their parents about how bad I am… 


In conclusion, depending on the circumstances, I can be as messy as I can be, or I can also be as organized as I can be. It really depends on my mood or how much pressed for time I am.

That’s it out of me today!
I’m going to watch Ghost in the Shell tomorrow!
I hope it’s good?!
In the meantime, take good care of yourselves!!
