This would be more emphatic if there was also a “before” photo but this is a photo of my spotlessly clean fridge three days after I began my Internet hiatus.  I also did laundry recreationally.  I cleaned my closets. I devised a clever albeit counterintuitive system for storing the recycling. (Paper is in the coat closet and bottles/cans are under the sink.)  At the time I imagined that I was miserable but in retrospect it seems to me that I was happy then and am miserable now, but then I’ve always had a huge capacity for irrational nostalgia.
