Cleaning your room is linked to success?

Hey all,

So this morning i was woken by my father (this rarely happens since my dad never sets foot in my room) who told me i needed to clean my room since people were going to need to come through it to get to my bathroom which is being re-done.

Now upon seeing my room (which wasnt TOO messy, i mean its organised chaos) it prompted him to give me a complete lecture about how messy rooms arnt what adults have etc etc.

Which made me wonder why it is that parents always seem to see a direct link between how clean your room is and how successful you are in life. It seems like some mathematical equation to them.

clean room + teenager = success later in life

messy room + teenager = failure later in life

Now i can understand that there may be a connection relating to the organisational skills of a person and the cleanliness of the room but no matter how messy my room looked, i still knew where everything was. which is a big challange since most of my clothes reside on my floor and i can honestly tell you its hard to pick out clothing when most if it is black.

my point is though- how will you fail at life or how is it immature to have a messy room? or how will you be successful if you have a clean room?

our rooms are our own personal space. i say we keep them however the hell we want and let our futures work there damn selves out.

Romeo and Juliet

A viewing of bazs romeo and juliet prompted me to write this blog entry.

once a novel, or play in this case, is made that is of such epic proportions, is it ever able to be another one as good? is the simplest words:

will there ever be a tragedy worse then romeo and juliets?

will any character ever have better morals then atticus finch?

will there ever be another novel to challenge the government like animal farm?

will there ever be a more gentlemenly character then mr.darcy?

or will attempts to write forever be compared to these originals without having a chance to be seen as seperate?

or is it up to us the readers to separate works?
