Okay, this is just disgusting.

I leave the ceiling fan on in my bedroom all year round, but I must have knocked it off balance a bit yesterday when I was painting because it was making a rattling sound in the middle of the night and I turned it off. This morning, I noticed what I could have never noticed while it was spinning above me: the unbelievable collection of dust that had accumulated on the blades. I’m pretty good about vacuuming up all dust balls in the corners of my apartment but I never thought to look at the ceiling for dust collections.
