Cock-roach crawling on the floor in my bedroom...
That's what I have seen few days back. Using shelltox to spray at it until I saw it turned upside down and waving its legs as if screaming for help. I was still not satisfied. I kept spraying until I felt like I have used up half bottle of the shelltox. I was that mean! Bluek! :p
And I was wondering, what the hell is that filthy cock-roach doing in my bedroom?! Was my bedroom that dirty and stink?! Eeww... What if it climbed on me while I was sleeping? Will I just wave it away? Or pinch it to death? Or will I just put it in my mouth while I was dreaming about eating crunchy crackers?! Yucks! Disgusting?! Regardless, I think it's the time for me to do some room cleaning.
So in this wonderful Saturday afternoon, I have my computer playing Alicia's songs from her latest album and start doing the cleaning. My room is not really big (even though I have the biggest room compare to my siblings :P), but I have lotsa stuff inside. Mostly books and magazines. And of course some other collections. Having too many stuff inside, I thought I should clear them out. Especially those out-dated, aging, unwanted stuff which starts collecting dust.
But I have problem with clearing things out. I don't have the heart to throw them all away. Those were my collection. My university assignment reports binded nicely. I was enjoying reading them over and over again remembering how hard and how much efforts I put in working those projects and assignment. Of course, there are some other postcards, small tiny fashion books with hunky model wearing only underwear. How could I possibly throw them away?!
Magazines. Goodness! You should see how many stacks I have inside my bedroom. Under my bed there're Men'Health magazine I collected for the past two years. And then I have that magazines for this year arranging properly in my bookrack. Not only that, I also collect NEW ICON magazine. Fortunately that magazine is release bi-monthly, so only 6 magazines per year. And there's no way that I am gonna throw them out! :p That's not all, I have Reader Digests filling up my book racks. Subscribed it since years ago. Thanks goodness, I stop subscribing it. Lazy to re-new, that's why! but I still buy it from book store occasionally when I am running out of something to read.
At the end, I threw out some other magazines which I stop reading or subscribing. Also, I threw out most of my old cassettes. Heart-breaking really! Looking those cassettes, they reminded me of those days when I was still young. Aiks! I am still young, ain't I?! Anyway, bittersweet memories just pop up in my head. Also, I got rid of empty mineral water bottle I bought. I drink alot. Can easily dehydrated! I even found myself threw the big puzzle (a photo of Aquarius) I bought years back which I never solved.
The funny thing is, even I have got rid of whole lotsa magazines and stuff, I still find my room very stuffy! Gosh, books! That's why! The idea of selecting which book to keep and what book to throw is tiring, I gave up in the end. Instead, I took a wet cloth and wipe my ceiling fan, my piano and my computer monitor which were covered with dust! Urgh! No wonder I find those movie I watched lately a little blurry! :p
Anyway, there are still a lot of things to be done to my room. Perhaps I should re-decorate my room. Re-organize my bedroom. Hmm... that sounds like a good idea. Should apply a few days leave to do that. And I am so gonna buy some new furnitures for my bedroom. Throw out those old one. Some of them are just too big and they just eat up too much space! I should start saving and pay a visit to IKEA.
