 An awful lot of housing clutter relates directly to the lack of community resources

 for example contains a lot of appliances which are only used for special
 occasions, and a sort of Kitchen-Library could easily supply the necessary tool:s
 as-needed to an entire community without cluttering up everyone's individual

 In other words - Not every household requires access to a power drill every
 single day, but an awfully large number of households have had to make
 permanent space for a power drill they bought specifically for those rare days
 when they have been needed

 The other day I went to McDonald's with my
 family and the guy who took my order was
 really loud and was basically like "HAPPY
 HOLIDAYS WHAT CAN I GET YOU" and I
 was like wow I can't let this guy outmatch
 me so I yelled "I'LL TAKE A HAPPY MEAL
 WITH THE NUG NUGS IFI MAY" you know
 like a natural well-adjusted epitome of
 adulthood 19 year old and he was like
 "CERTAINLY WOULD YOU LIKE THE
 MIGHTY KIDS MEALINSTEAD WITH
 EXTRA FRIES" and I was so sleep deprivedI
 essentially blacked out and apparently
 leaned over the counter like I was robbing
 the place, raised my eyebrow like a suave
 robin hood and said "HECK YES I WOULD
 GOOD SIR" and then I sat down and he
 yelled from across the store "WOULD YOU
 LIKE THE PURPLE OR BLUE SPIDER
 MAN and since purple is the more superior
 color that's how I answered and long story
 short my parents think college changed me
 and that I'm now the poster child for being
 social and I've only been asked once why
 I'm not in a relationship yet but I know it's
 gonna be brought up again and how do i tell
 my parents it's because whenever eat in
 the dining hall spend the entire time
 playing bumper cars with the wheeley
 chairs and all I eat is pixie sticks and the last
 time I was in the library (where I'm
 supposed to work next semester, deAr GoD)
 I ripped my leggings in the bathroom pulling
 up my pants and I walked the entire 20 mins
 back to my dorm with my neon underwear
 peeking out from the holes like a 17th
 century harlot with a cocaine addiction and
 I've essentially been living off jars of peanut
 butter and the soundtrack to the bee movie
 for the past year
