According to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy is on the rise. For those of you who aren’t chemist enthusiasts, entropy is a measurement of disorder. So, in plain English, disorder increases naturally unless we put in energy to stop it.
I blame this 2nd law for the state of my bedroom. For some reason, when I unpack I have to pull out everything before I can start organizing. This might be because I pack “efficiently”. No box is uncomfortably heavy and there are the minimum number of boxes possible. This means each box is an eclectic mixture of things. Either way, my new room is covered in my possessions, and I don’t have the energy to organize right now (get it? nerdy chemistry joke there).
