    Wash Away My Worries

    I like to stand under the warm spray of the shower, close my eyes and imagine all my worries are sliding off of me and floating down the drain.  The gentle touch of the water eases my weary body and the scent of my favorite soap calms my mind.  There...

    Can't Help It

    I could honestly say that I have no control over how long I take my showers. I say quick and I'm in there long enough for it to go cold then hot again lol I just get lost when taking my showers. Its a reflection time. I am so comfortable when in the water plus I haven't been...

    I Get Distracted

    I always listen to my CD player when I have a shower, and sometimes I just stop and sing or dance around a little. I probably waste a good 10 minutes in the shower, lol. My showers are all around 30 minutes long, lmao.

    I Usually Take....

    Well I usually take about an hour taking a shower. Yes I know its really weird for a guy to take long but I do because I like to be clean and to be fresh! My parents get mad at me but I really dont care I want to be fresh before I leave the house and hang out with my friends.

    Love It!

    I take a shower every day - sometimes twice! And I love the feeling of water running over me. I love to be in water - I think it must have something to do with being a Pisces - and I love to be warm, so standing under hot, flowing water is pure bliss. I love the feel and look of...

    Go Away, and Don't Come Back Either!!

    It just relaxes me after a hard day's work. Like it's pounding away all the bad parts of your day and leaving only the best bits. I sometimes prefer to soak bad memories away in a bath, but you have to do with what you've got.

    After A Long Day

    There is nothing in life better that having an extra-long shower, in winter to drive the chills from the bone and in summer to cool down after a long day at work. When I have a shower up to three times a day, is not to clean my body but also my sole – to wash away all the...

    Thanks to My Tankless Heater

    My current place has a tankless hot water heater, so it never runs out of hot water. It's such a nice change from my last place, where the hot water only seemed to last for 10 minutes.

    I find it normal to be in the shower for 30-45 minutes. I do it every morning and I need it to wake up properly.

    I have very long, thick hair. It takes forever to get it all wet. Then I have to wash it and make sure I rinse it all out. The longest part is conditioning. No one gets how long it takes to wash this mess.
