What Happens When You Clean

10 Things That Inevitably Happen When You Clean Your Room For The First Time In Ages

Looks behind bed and finds three scarfs, two mismatched socks, and $20


Home for winter break, a layer of dust over everything, and newfound free-time. Why not double down and clean your room?

1. You put it off until you can't anymore


The state of your room apparently represents where your headspace is at...

2. You become disgusted with yourself for letting it get so bad


Even you can't stand how filthy it's getting.

3. You find things you forgot you had

4. You get sidetracked by memory lane


You know when you find something that has a personal memory attached to it or something from your school days or someone special, and then you just get sucked in thinking about old times and end up pulling out even more memorabilia? An hour later you remember what you were actually trying to do with no motivation to do it.

5. You purge everything


All that stuff that you don't have anywhere to put it... GONE! BYE! SEE YA NEVER!

6. ... Or stuff it all in the closet


Or just take it all and throw it in a closet to deal with at a later date.

7. You take a 5-minute break that turns into a 45-minute break


A small reward turns into a "break" that sucks all the motivation that you ever had to clean in the first place. Oops

8. You get out the heavy duty cleaning supplies


Brooms, Swiffer dusters, vacuums... Watch out, you may be the next Ghost Buster... or Dust-Buster.

9. You organize everything to your liking


Clothes are color coded, magazines are lined up, and there's nothing out of place. Perfect.

10. You vow to never let it get this bad again


After a full day of cleaning, there's no way you'll let it get this bad again... until it inevitably does.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
