    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.

    I swear this picture exactly describes me lol!

    The shortest shower I could ever take is about 20 minutes, most of my showers last more than that and if you ask me what I do inside, well I have no idea!It is because I wonder exactly like this under the shower , that's why I always always have to make sure there is A LOT of hot...

    Deep, Dark Confessions of a Neurotic Shower Lover....

    While no one could ever compete with my friend Susan when it comes to taking long showers, I sometimes think I come pretty close. This is probably because when I get in the shower I have a very strict regimen and the situation must be just right. Rule #1 The water pressure...

    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.

    Long Showers, Oh Yes

    I love a nice long shower.  I usually take one in the morning and at night before I go to bed.  I also love it when my husband gets in there with me, only sometimes though. lol  I just don't like to share the water all the time.  It can get kind of chilly with...

    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...

    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...

    Normal

    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.

    Showering

    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.

    My Thinking Area

    I have recently or past few years use my shower time as a brain storming time. I don't know if it's the water that is calming me down or the temperature or sound or all together but it is for sure the best place for me to think. So my five minuts showers become a bit longer that...

    Comfortable.

    Showering is one of my things that just makes me feel better. If I need to cry, I find myself currled up in a little ball sitting in the shower. I love the feeling of the water going down my body. And I love how when I cry in the shower no one can hear me. I will spend as...

    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.

    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.

    Clean

    I take a long shower after I have had my bath! You see I like a nice bath to relax and soak in, but then I think it's dirty because your laying in your own dirt for so long, therefore I have to have a nice shower to wash of all the dirty water so that I can be sure I'm clean!

    We've had a couple of dry years here in Cali and are most likely going to have water shortages this summer. I feel guilty about wasting all that water. But I really enjoy my long showers. I'm spacing out the long ones so that I'm not using so many resources daily. =(  A...

    I Can't Afford to Spoil Myself.
