As a guy, multiple of our close friends in our 20s lived fairly unencumbered lives.
Several were perpetual bachelors with messy apartments plus lacking hygienic standards that I take for granted within our own life.
I hated visiting our friends’ homes plus being disgusted by the state of their bathrooms plus home offices. Even the ones with long term partners didn’t seem to care enough about cleanliness plus apartment maintenance. Back then they just wanted to party plus have as much fun as possible, plus few were thinking about the long term future plus what it would hold. My friend Chris lived in the town down the street from the state hospital. It was a high-demand area for real estate, plus he was blessed to find the duplex that he resided in for 2 years before losing it over a dumb plan to “live in the woods” with a conartist he had invited into his life. That duplex would have been a lot better if he had taken better care of it. He typically had the windows open, regardless of the time of the year plus the weather outside. This resulted in a lot of dust, pollen, plus mold spores getting in from outside. These small particles drifted in through open windows. They would settle on every conceivable surface inside his duplex, plus you can imagine how excruciating it would get after just a few weeks of no dusting or sweeping. I would have mild allergic reactions whenever visiting his place plus in the end I had to supply up visiting our friend where he lives.
