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.
