I hereby officially give myself permission to NOT clean my room until this book is done! If any cleaning gets done, I attribute it to the necessity of not going completely insane. I am allowed to sit down and work without feeling guilty. I am allowed to leave my door open when I leave and not worry about what my roommates are thinking. I am allowed to be surrounded by clothes and makeup and sketchbooks and shoes, coats, dishes, a bed unmade, and continue to work work work on this book until the work is finished!
I may still clean... but if not... it. is. o. kay.
