My mum got a little pissed off with our increasingly messy house a couple weeks ago after we came home from my grandmother's house. She said when asked, my cousin said our house was the messiest. And she started nagging about it.
I really can't be bothered with what my cousin says, I mean, their family has a maid and a grandmother at home all the time and the maid will be cleaning and both will be nagging at the kids to keep their stuff properly.
I know how I am, and I'm not making any excuses for myself, but if he were to live in my situation where my mum only nags at night when she's at home and he can get away with ignoring her for a bit, he'd be as messy. Or maybe not but a lot messier than he is now.
Plus he doesn't have a room of his own to mess up.
I know it's not the point but I can't stand it when my mum said that cos hello, I think I'm a lot better than him overall.
Ah. I'm judging him. He's never given me anything to prove me wrong though. He's very hot-tempered and stubborn, and he doesn't realise how studying is actually important and will help him get out of the education system faster.
I'm going to make a prediction, and I really sincerely hope he proves me wrong: he won't do well for PSLE and will go to the Normal Tech stream. Right now he's not doing well in school either, failed practically all his 4 subjects at one point or another. His English is atrocious.
Actually it doesn't matter if he's not academically inclined, but his attitude sometimes makes you want to strangle him.
Anyway my mum wants to hire a part-time domestic helper. But I need to make everything neat before she can actually come and clean. Sometimes stuff is strewn all over my room floor and is impossible to vacuum/mop. Oops.
I think the point of this post was to wish my mum didn't mind his comment so much. We're a lot better off in so many areas and this one lousy aspect doesn't mean we're terrible people. Maybe she feels like it's a reflection of her housekeeping abilities but she doesn't have the time and it's not her fault, it's mine ):
I think a more important reflection of her is how she brought her children up and I think she did a pretty darn good job for a gangly witty boy and overthinking sensitive girl.
Okay I'm going back at attempting to clear my room. Make my momma proud~
Zzz why am I such a hoarder ): I have so many unfinished notebooks I don't know if I should throw them away
