Narrative Essay: 9 steps to clean your Room (My Response)
When I read this blog on 9 steps of cleaning your room, I immediately thought about myself.

Sometimes I thought I needed therapy. Like in the narrative: Go Carolina, David Sedaris says “the word therapy suggested a profound failure on my part.
