Just a couple of minutes ago my cat jumped off of me and failed to land on the couch properly thus scratching the couch with her nails. It's not a big deal to me. I mean.. it's just some scratches on a couch. It's just an object. Luckily my family doesn't go that crazy about it.. But there is this feeling that they make it seem like something horrible has happened. :p
A friend of mine and I became room mates last summer. I'm really anal about keeping the place clean, but I don't really mind clutter. In fact, I leave a lot of my own shit lying around. I only get upset when it gets unhygienic. Or when he scratches my fucking couch.
