During this pandemic, I usually sit on my desk for long stretches without budging. Any thought of getting away from it is unwelcome. Taking a bath is not an exception. It has been a challenge for me as I have to do lots of conditioning before being able to finally dip into the water.
Even let's say the water is hot, I still struggle to do it--taking a bath. I heat the water only to leave it and become cold once again. I stay longer at the toilet seat in the hope of being beckoned to the bathing but to no avail.
I can't ever forget how I was back in school. My hair used to stay as is without being combed. Good thing I had and still have the smooth and silky one so even if I don't take a bath and comb, I still appear okay. But deep inside I feel some self loathing for my extreme laziness. It's like saying, 'I don't want to.' And I really won't budge.
Anyway, the moment I get in the mood for taking a bath, I do it for up to around 3 hours. So from not taking a bath to doing it for longer than usual. I remove all the dirt I could find and use up all the contents of the shampoo. I use up all available water in the bathroom.
When I come out after taking a bath, my older sister would quizzically look at me and I rush to our quarters giggling. It's good after all to take a bath. I promise myself to do it more often.
But then every time it's time for the next, I struggle to do it again. And like always, when I eventually do it, I do it as if I have all the time and water and shampoo and bath soap.
I tried setting up schedules or routines just so I could regularly do it but to no avail. Except perhaps those moments I had a crush! I do it twice a day! Hihihi! And comb and look at myself in the mirror. But on other occasions, I struggle to take a bath. Especially if I already started writing, good if no one is bothering me. Otherwise, they'd get one or two shouts from me. I admit this is wrong but I can't help it.
I did all I could from buying a big basin where I could use as a bath tub, obtaining water heater, etc. just so I will be inspired to take a bath but to no avail. Well I can only take a bath regularly during working days but that's for compliance sake so that I won't smell bad. But I do it with a lot of grrrr and grrrr and grrrr.
One good thing during this pandemic is that I don't have to regularly do it. Fortunately, I am one who doesn't stink easily. I just take showers to remedy my laziness. At least, I had my body washed even if the hair is untouched.
I shared this thing since I'm constantly bugged about it. Am I the only one? For sure I can find friends who share the same experience. At least for me, once I take a bath, I really do it wholeheartedly. If I don't want to, then I won't.
But in time, I really should be able to take a bath regularly. Someday! Teehee!
