Things They Don't Tell You (But Should)
Everyone is full of wonderful advice that they won't hesitate to thrust upon you at the slightest chance. Everyone is full of something else, too, so you might want to pass on the advice.
Do it every morning, first thing when you get out of bed. You’re right there, anyway, and it takes 45 seconds, max. Then, repeat that action every day for the rest of your life seven days and see how it treats you.
When fully made, your bed should feature, at minimum:
- A fitted sheet;
- A topsheet, tucked in on three sides;
- A comforter, hopefully covered with a duvet, which is easy to launder and;
- Assorted pillows.
When you make your bed, you have as a nice, clean plane in your bedroom that you can then lay out clothes or whatever on. The whole room looks neater (fact: it’s impossible for a room to look clean with an unmade bed).
Then at night when you are tired, you’ll walk in and your bed will be made. When you slip beneath the sheets, it’s a pleasurable experience. Not like when all the sheets are bunched up and you get tangled in them and feel more like a strung-out junkie than the situation really warrants.
The longest sheets should go without washing is two weeks; wash them in warm water by themselves, using 1/2 the usual amount of your detergent. Try to have at least three sets of sheets; I always find nice, cheap ones at TJ Maxx.
What middle-class America do you mean, kavasa?
Step 1 to adulthood: Do not use the word "awesome" unless you are within sight of the Grand Canyon or similar wondrous thing.
There will never be a time in my life where everything is under control, when there are no swirling scary difficulties making me feel small and powerless. But there will also never be a time when there isn’t something I can do to improve things, or at least my outlook on them. I can get out of bed, put on a cute outfit, tidy my house, write a thank-you letter to my wonderful uncle, go work out, plug my amazing little sister’s new magazine [emphasis theirs]
If we could just get rid of all the <group of human beings>…
Perhaps if you haters would loosen up you would be invited to smashing retro parties with great people, laughs, food and drinks! In the mean time I will leave you off my invite list.
