news for the morning, i woke up, and started cleaning immediately. jesus christ, there's a lot of shit in my room. there was so much stuff just laying around, that for about an hour after i started cleaning out the closet, i couldn't open my door more than about 5 or 6 inches, and that was just to shovel some of the more useless stuff out into the hallway. and it's not over yet. i'm on to the doing-laundry-stage. that'll take me another couple hours. ah well. at least i'm getting it done.
