    Depends on what to clean: the car, myself or the house

    It seems like neither a chore nor something happy and pleasing. It feels similar to brushing my teeth, brushing my hair, or anything of that nature.

    I put it as a priority in my daily life, and make no bigger of a deal out of it than that. It takes but a few moments a day if you set yourself up for success with it. Larger chores (like cleaning out a closet) can be refreshing in the right mindset.. Cleaning gear up after a camping trip feels a bit like an obligation since you came from doing something fun to ending it. But otherwise there isn't much thought either way.

    One of the signs that I am exhausted/stressed/overworked/depressed (in a temporary, sad way.. not in the disorder way.) is if I start to neglect things like this. It is an immediate sign that something is wrong.

    Not motivated most of the time. Occasionally I will freak out and frantically clean. The rest of the time I ignore most of it. Except the toilet. For some reason I don't like the toilet being dirty.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    No one ever comes over, and my approach is to make interacting with "stuff" as simple as possible. When things are too cluttered there is no way to find anything and it is an annoyance to try to move around and live. When things are spotless and hyper-organized, then it feels like too much effort for a petty result. I like to have toy boxes to throw half-worn clothes onto and into, and other organization where you can just throw everything of a type into a box or drawer. There gets to be a lot of clutter and junk mail can pile high on the table, so it is hard to keep up. I always aim for just enough cleaning to make life easiest.

    Very motivated/motivated because i don't want a disease.

    I'm not a neat freak by any means, I will leave socks on the floor occasionally and my desk is kinda cluttered. But I don't leave dirty things lying about to attract bugs or disease I can't stand dirty bathrooms or crumbs on a bed. Usually when things become noticeably messy I will blast some music and go mad cleaning everything. It's almost therapeutic in a weird way.

    I only care about cleaning places I spend a lot of time in. Which currently, is just my room. My room is the cleanest one in this entire house and the rest be damned. If I lived on my own and it was my place then I'd insist on keeping the whole thing clean. I can't relax in a filthy environment.

    Mildly motivated. My apartment is usually neat because it's easy to clean. What I can't allow is clutter, so I keep things clean by not having much in the first place. My kitchen and bathroom are always tidy because I know a little procrastination will lead to very disgusting smells and dishes that I'd rather throw out than wash.

    Most of the time I dread it. It's just boring work and makes my mind demand "damn, give me something to ponder about! This is utterly boring!!"
    But still I have no problem keeping up with my cleaning schedule because I simply HATE the look of an untidy and dirty apartment. So there's no way of getting around it, really... so I do it when I need to. And afterwards I always get this accomplished feeling of "yes, one thing to strike out of my to-do-list!"

    Ha, just remembered, there's some chore I always enjoy: ironing. It's one of these things you like doing without cause, you just do.
