Spring-Cleaning My Life

Spring-Cleaning My Life Just Another Article About Self-Care By ALAYA AYALA   With the weather beginning to warm up and the sun beginning to set later I, like many people, have really begun to notice a change in how motivated I am to take care of myself. Suddenly, I want to scrub down my dorm room every day. I want to make my bed in the morning, I want to wake up early. I’m even motivated to go to breakfast.
