Even if it's 21st century now, men aren't alone to earn a living and woman's sole place isn't in a kitchen anymore, I often feel that in some cases, nothing really changed. At least for me. Clean house (flat) has always been a priority in my family. My granny always cleaned the house properly. And so did my mum. Everything had to be just prefect. So it's not surprise that I want my flat to be neat. I think I am not obsessed like my mother and grandmother. To be honest I can be quite messy. When I am leaving the house, my room is always turned inside out. Clothes, earings, make-up everywhere. It's probably because I am quite chaotic and always in a rush. But when the place is a real mess and when there is dust, I spent the evening by cleaning at the earliest. Mess...okay. But what I hate is dirt. (And I am alergic, so I should not even be in a place where's dirt and dampness.) But back to the gender roles, I just wanted to say, that it often ends up like this: me...dusting, hoovering, wiping the floor, doing the laundry and my boyfriend...still being at work on friday night.
I know, I don't have to do this...and not alone. But wait for him, for saturday, for spliting the work and ruin the weekend by cleaning? No. And still, I guess it is more important for me to have clean flat and clothes than for him. Yeah, he would do it too, but I've been already lying under the layers of dirt and walking on streets naked or at least without underwear. So I do these things first. I am in charge of taking care of our flat and stuff. I simply somehow have to...because I am used to it. The society taught us to do this. To be caring, well-brought-up and many other things. My mother taught me. She was my role model. She was taking care of us and our home. So even if I don't want to, I do the same. ...
But it has its positive side too...yes, maybe it is boring hard work which is vain because in a minute there is dirt again, but it can be also pretty satisfying when you are done.
