Shoes are neatly lined up in the hallway. Clothes are folded and placed in the wardrobe. Kitchen is shiny, dishwasher is running. Bathroom is scrubbed and tomorrow's workout clothes are packed. Bed is made and papers are filed. Candles are lit and music is playing softly.
I clean when I am anxious.
Sometimes, I wish I could clean up the mess that is me. But there is a time and a place for everything and now I need to focus on what has been my number one priority these last few months: study!
