ENGINEERING 106 :

dirty laundry

CHUDDY BUDDY !!!

One of the biggest crisis that occurs in a hostel during your engineering life, is the underwear crisis. This is a big challenge and a pain. You need to wash your undergarments and other clothes timely in order not to run out of them. And, those who are not used to this, like myself, usually complain and cry a lot about it. The good thing about home is that, apart from the amazing food you get there, there is always a washing machine or at least someone who willingly washes your clothes (Maybe not willingly, but you get the point).

Hostels can get really weird at times. One of my friend’s was once scolded by her warden for washing her laundry at 3 am in the night. Firstly, why at 3 am? And secondly, who scolds and gets pissed at people for washing clothes? Both of them weirdos. πŸ˜›

Some people go crazy about the fact that they have to wash their undergarments and all so regularly and like my friend, what they do is, when it’s time to go home on a vacation, they take all their dirty clothes and put them in a separate bag, and carry another bag with clean clothes, then they take yet another empty bag with them so that they can get back some food from their home sweet home. To me, they don’t really have to carry so many bags, like the separate bag Β with the dirty laundry, but yes, the empty suitcase is very essential. It is a bag of hopes. Just imagine, you are all set to go home, your parents are eagerly waiting to finally meet you after so long. They buy all the essential snacks and drinks, and they prepare your favourite dishes. You finally reach home, and your mother is overjoyed to see you. With tears of joy in her eyes she comes to embrace you, but before that happens you say to her, “Mommy, dirty laundry in this bag alert! Please get it washed for me.” Well, poor mommy. I hope no one does that. πŸ˜›

Washing your undergarments actually teaches you how to manage your time. In this dreadful challenge, you have to calculate how many undergarments you have left with you, how long they are going to last, and when is the best time to wash the dirty ones. If it’s your exam time, like the semester exams, then you need to wash them up, and if you have only 3-4 undergarments left then get to it immediately. This, I learnt the hard way.

But yes, it does improve your management skills in some way at least. This is me trying to find the good in having to wash my dirty laundry.

Nah, I still hate it. πŸ˜€

I’m pretty sure all those who hate washing their laundry will get used to it soon. I finally understand my mother’s pain when it comes to having to wash the dirty clothes. I complain when it comes to washing my own clothes, she deals with the entire family’s clothes man.

Still hate it though. πŸ˜›

HAPPY WASHING GUYS !!!
