I hate cleaning

I really really really hate to clean. So I often put it off, and end up living in a mess for weeks on end. But it's worth it, for the time that I can put off cleaning. Eventually, though, I have to stop procrastinating and get it done. Things that are helpful to me:

  • Coffee
  • Peppy music
  • Cleaning in the morning
  • Cleaning in pajamas
  • Buying new products to clean with
I especially love Fabuloso.
This is my shit.

Anyway, I'm trying to find my camera cord so I can finally blog about nail polish and makeup. And thrifting! Stay tuned.

Summer reading plans

I had originally planned on taking 3 classes this summer to start up on my second Bachelor's degree. However, due to limited finances I've decided to postpone starting up another degree. To take up my time and do something productive this summer, I'll be reading at least 5 books (and by summer I mean now- August 23rd, which is when fall classes begin). I've no idea what the other 4 books will be, but I'll start out with The Sound and the Fury by Faulkner because I'm a glutton for punishment and because I'm hopeful that it won't be as horrible as reading As I Lay Dying in 9th grade. I may read The Great Gatsby next (again) since I think a movie version is coming out soon, and I think I wanted to see it. Plus, I remember liking that novel and I want to name my dog Daisy. Or Vivi Luxe.

Edit: I went to the library and couldn't find TSatF. Buuuutttt I found Invisible Man, in the wrong section actually. I found a lost book for the library! Yay! I've been meaning to read that for a while so that will be my first book of the summer instead of the other. I also picked up a collection of stories by Kate Chopin. I read Awakening, twice actually, once in high school and again last year, and really liked it. Hopefully I'll enjoy her short stories as much as the novel.
