Neat vs. Sloppy
Many people will consider themselves a very neat person, but are they really neat or sloppy? Often, people say they are neat, so they won’t be embarrassed by what people think of them. When I contrast my aunt with myself, we are different from each other.
To begin with, there are several ways that you can recognize a neat person from a sloppy person. A neat person makes sure that he/she are groomed well, they are very irritated when something is out of place, they try to make things as perfect as they can make it, and a neat person enjoy being in a clean environment. Whereas, for a sloppy person, they say that they are going to do something, but then decide not to, they hold on to things that they are not going to use, sloppy people don’t care about anything, and they don’t take time to look nice. Many times, we say things such as he/she is so nasty, he/she looks clean, or I bet his/her house is nasty. All of these are statements we say when we first see a person because of how he/she acts and dresses.
Second, I am a very neat person. I like everything to be in the place that it belongs so that I won’t misplace, or throw away something that is important. For instance, I will take my room for example; every time I clean up my bedroom, I always find something to throw away. I remember, the last time, I had a bag full of garbage that included papers, which I had stored in a box. I noticed that it was needless, so I threw it away. Another reason, I guess I am so neat is because my parents always taught me to take care of things, and to keep the house clean because you don’t know when someone might stop by to visit.
Third, my aunt is very different. She is the type that likes to collect junk. One reason is because, when she was small, she watched her father collect other people’s mess, and I assume that is why she does it. Her house is so cluttered, that it is difficult to find a place to sit. Everywhere you look, there are papers, clothes, or other things piled up, that she should throw away. One time, I volunteered to clean up the unnecessary items that she had collected, but she refused to because she wanted to look through it first. However, she did not look through it, and continued to allow the useless items to pile up.
In conclusion, the different between neat people and sloppy people is that, neat people like to keep things in an orderly manner, and sloppy people allow useless things to pile up. My aunt and I are definitely different because she likes to let useless items pile up, and I like to throw it away if I don’t need it anymore.

  1. Due today? Well, I am not certain the purpose of this writing, what you were supposed to accomplish or do, so I will restrict my comments to point of view.
    What is your Aunt going to say when she reads this? Will she have a differing opinion? Have you ever read about compulsive behaviour? Or ethnocentric thinking?
    There are a lot of errors in grammar and sentence structure. Since time is short, you need to do close reading of this. In conclusion, the different between neat people and sloppy people is that, neat ... is but only one example. You can do better than that.

  2. groomed well, they are very irritated = that is a run-on sentence. "well. They" BUT you began with the singular and then switched to the plural. Make up your mind which you want and stick to it.

    a neat person enjoy being = enjoys

    going to use, sloppy people = the sentence is too long. Make 2 sentences = going to use. Sloppy peope, etc.

    she wanted to look through it first. = to look through them (because the preceding sentence referred to items, plural)

    the different between = I corrected that one last night. different is an adjective and you need difference the noun = the difference between, etc.

    Same thing in the last sentence. throw it away if I don’t need it anymore.

    = throw them away if I don't need them anymore.
