Cleaning. I can’t believe it’s been a year

  • Life

As I sit here, watching some news (lockdown will happen tomorrow) wasting my Sunday night, I can’t believe it’s been a year I’m living in this place. This time last year, I was working on cleaning this flat to remove all cobwebs and molds and of course, the bathroom made me cringe since it’s the most disgusting portion of a condominium. This is the third time I move out and it makes me wonder how people can be really messy.

Honestly, I can’t complain since my brother and sister-in-law are the previous tenants here and this is an old unit but even if it is quite old, with a little bit for furniture and deep deep cleaning, things can make surprisingly decent — well except for the sinks, I can’t understand why those things clog up so fast even after using hydrochloric acid and I’m guessing it’s due to how the pipes are aligned. So far the issue with the living or bedroom is the bed as the mainframe is weak due to the middle stand being missing but good thing I have spare wood and a nail to fill up that awful space. The only issue with the living/bedroom for me is there are only 2 over 6 functional main plugs, so I have to use extensions which I keep on tripping multiple times.

Mold in the bathroom and the small kitchen are easily been taken care of with the usual brands for cleaning and it makes scrubbing easier so it saves my precious 6 hours to 10 minutes, and I’ve been buying those cleaning liquids multiple times now for simple cleaning and maintenance. Luckily, the bathroom isn’t neglected but there are molds in hard-to-reach places, judging by how black the molds are… I think they didn’t clean it for 6 months to a year, thank god that those cleaning liquids are helpful.

As much as possible I don’t buy furniture as I don’t own this place and I have plans to move out of the country in the future so I have to try to make this place a minimalistic vibe and unlike my previous place, this is the cheapest one I could rent right now and easiest move-in because I’m close with the room owner (heh).

So the cleaning took me two days since I have to go home and get my stuff so I can move properly to this place. Moving stuff is such a pain in the ass because I have to bring everything — I only have two pieces of luggage: one for clothes and the other one for electronics; I also have to bring two 10 kilos of game cartridges that my hubby left which is already taken care of and I only have one box left.

Looking back, the cleaning isn’t that bad and honestly, this is the easiest clean-up I ever made; the most horrific one is the first unit I ever stayed which is a two-bedroom unit, with no electricity but there’s water, luckily we’re 4-5 people who cleaned it up — as remembering those mess and multiple times we had to shout due to the trash they made, I really hate them, seething actually,

So anyway, this post is a different one — I was planning for my usual manhwa post but I decided that putting a personal post is much quicker. This is what happens when I haven’t sat down and written anything since 2021 even though there’s been a lot going on. I want to return and post more often but I just don’t know if I have that kind of drive at the moment.

Maybe. if I moved out again and there’s a room that needs cleaning then probably I’ll be able to sit down and rant about my new place, hah! let’s see.
