    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

I grew up doing my family’s laundry since I was old enough to know what laundry was. I washed, folded, and hand-delivered my parents’ and siblings’ laundry, as well as my own. I never thought of it as a hassle or a horrific task. It was always just another chore to do after school.

And then I got to college. And that’s when laundry became a growing mound of ignored, dirty articles of clothing and wet towels in the farthest corner of my room. With classes, work, homework, studying for quizzes and tests, feeding myself, sleeping, and living life, the last thing I want to do on a Sunday night is laundry. And since I tend to hope that my clothes will wash themselves if I ignore them long enough, I often end up with six loads of laundry at the end of the month.

In the Kerst apartments, there are 9 washers and 9 dryers in the laundry room for the entire building to share. I’ve never had to wait until the next day I intended to do laundry. The most I’ve ever had to wait for a washer to open up was an hour or two. And when I have 6 loads to do, I simply take advantage of my insomnia and monopolize the laundry room at 3 in the morning when no one is up but me. And then I’m good to go for another month.

And I know what you’re thinking: Do I wear dirty clothes all the time?

No. I just happen to have a lot of clothes because I know how much I hate doing laundry. But it must get done. Once a month.
