i began to clean. since my next roommate wouldn't arrive until the middle of next week, there wasn't a rush to get everything ready. i vacuumed a bit but mainly washed all the bed sheets and pillow cases.
spike tv was running a star wars marathon all day long and i got sucked into watching the empire strikes back then later return of the jedi. later in the evening i soaked in the warm bathtub while reading the latest issue of popular science. i had some chinese dumplings for dinner.
i find it unsettling living without a roommate now. i've gotten used to always being on guard because there might be somebody else in the house. it shouldn't be hard getting back to my usual habits though: leaving clothes everywhere, not doing the dishes, making a mess of the living room. it's almost like having a roommate prevents me from regressing.
