Spring Cleaning. Again.

Let's face it. Bachelors like me are supposed to be messy and dirty. My room is supposed to be a haven for lost books, magazines, letters, etc. It's hard to get any other single guys like me to respect me if my room's spick and span.

A few months ago, I would have been ashamed of myself - my room was really clean - tip top condition, not a bit of dust even in the hardest to reach corners. And more than anything else - I had a clean desk.

But a few months of travel, neglect and general business due to work straightened my problems. My room is now back at it's messiest. Moz Happy !!!! =)

But every once in a while, there is still uncontrollable urge to clean up. I don't know why. It's just like a gene in me suddenly activated and said "Hey, let's clean this mess !!!". And my brain and subsequently, body, just decided to play along. Don't have a clue why I'd do that.

So, clean up I did. My room's now a much cleaner place.

If I had a girlfriend, she'd be proud of me. If my mum came visiting, she'd be telling all my relatives at the coming Chinese New Year about it. I'm so ashamed. =(

One of these days, I'll find some medication / cocktail of liquor / hypnotherapist - I dunno ... someone or something that will finally help me break free from this ocassional urge to clean my room.

I'd like to hear from anyone who's a subject matter expert ... is this urge to clean up my room a diseases, disorder, syndrome or something I should seek medical help to address?
