20 Things Only Super Organized People Will Understand

20 Things Only Super Organized People Will Understand

To-do lists galore!

I have met people who are definitely more organized than I am, but I still consider my self a very organized person in general. Although I do have moments of procrastination, I have always been someone who likes to plan ahead and keep things neat. There are so many things that I do that only fellow organized people can understand.

1) The glorious sight of an office supply or organization section of a store

2) ...Or even better...a store dedicated to organization

My mom and I LIVE for The Container Store!

3) Making lists for everything, just to feel prepared

4) The amazing feeling of checking off something on a list

And sometimes you just add something you have already done to the list to feel accomplished right off the bat.

5) Color coding and/or labeling is your best friend

I never understand the people that would have a folder and notebook that were different colors for the same class...am I the only one?

6) You prepare the next day the night before

7) Your planner is always in use

And you wish you had enough time or an excuse to decorate them and make them look as nice as the ones you see on Youtube or Instagram

8) And speaking of planners: you have to find the PERFECT one, even if it costs a little too much...

I am guilty of researching planners and have considered buying planners that are $50, but luckily I have contained myself.

9) You hate having tentative plans because you like to plan ahead and have things set in stone

10) ...aka you hate change in general

11) You always make sure your handwriting is neat

12) You do not understand the people that can procrastinate and STILL get things done

Especially when they will sometimes even do better than you...so annoying.

13) You stress clean

14) You always buy way more notebooks, planners, and pens than you actually need

You're telling me I don't need pens in every color of the rainbow? And different pens for different projects?

15) Your phone screen has to have only one page of categorized apps

I do not understand the people who have multiple pages of apps on their phone and will not put them into folders. It stresses me out if I have too much to go through.

16) You hate when people move your stuff

17) It stresses you out to be late

18) Most of your spaces looks like they came out of an HGTV magazine

Searching Pinterest, magazines, and catalogs for ideas and expecting them to be realistically possible.

19) You love anything to do with charts, schedules, and graphs

20) The cringe-worthy, painful sight of someone shoving a piece of paper into the deep depths of a backpack

Some people are organized and some people are really not. Being organized is a blessing and a curse. It is extremely helpful when it comes to getting stuff done efficiently, but there are struggles too like having a harder time adjusting to change. Have you experienced any of these?

The Hairdo Diaries

The average day of a girl who just lost half her hair volume.

I am unpleasantly awoken by a blaring alarm at 8:30 am telling me it’s time to get my butt up if I plan on making it to Organic Chemistry on time. So naturally, I snooze the alarm for 10 more minutes before even considering crawling out of my comfy warm sanctuary. When I finally do find it in me to stumble out of bed I groggily head to the bathroom, pulling my hair into a top knot on the way. I pause mid-stride as I am momentarily confused as to where half of my hair has gone.

Light brown hair that used to reach my mid back now only falls at roughly my shoulder. Since its early it takes me a second to remember that little over a week ago I hacked it all off. Coming from someone who used to cry when I was forced to trim my ends, this seven inches shorter thing has taken some getting used to. When I finally do reach the bathroom I have roughly ten minutes to be out the door so it’s go time.

After a quick brushing of teeth, it’s time to tackle the monstrosity that is my bed head. Back when I had long hair it was impossible to deal with in the morning. It was a tangled disaster every morning but I wouldn’t even dream of combing it since it would cause the loose waves to frizz and resemble the main of a horse. Since cutting it all off, I no longer have to deal with that frizzy disaster. It does seem though that I have traded one problem for another as now my hair sticks straight up in the morning and refuses to sit down atop my head. Instead it choices to resemble Mount Everest or one of the girls’ hair from Jersey Shore. With a frustrated groan, I run a comb through it and stick it back into a bun before garbing my bag and heading out the door.

It is less than two minutes later when I meet up with a friend to walk to class that she informs me that I missed a huge chunk of hair at the back of my head that is not secured in the top knot. I grumble that I didn’t miss the piece of hair but rather the piece of hair decided that it didn’t want to play nice. I silently curse myself for not taking the time to secure shorter pieces of hair at the back of my head with bobby pins because they’re simply not long enough to stay in an up-do by themselves.

When I finally reach class, I am now faced with the difficult decision between trying to blindly half up half down my hair or throwing it into a low pony and looking like a colonel man. There’s a huge chance I’d have a lumpy half ponytail at best but it’s better than looking like Paul Revere with a tiny low ponytail and shorter wispy pieces of hair framing my face. When I finally am able to reach the bathroom I do my best to deal with the situation but eventually, give up and throw my hair into the classic man bun. At least now I look like a cool hipster teenage boy instead of a revolutionary one.

As I continue my day on campus I am meet with the unavoidable question that has haunted me for the past week without fail. Whenever I run into anyone I do not see on a regular base I am undoubtedly questioned “oh. Did you get a haircut?” I must then attempt to refrain myself from spitting out some bad line about dying my hair invisible. When I respond that “yes, I did, in fact, cut my hair” I am meet with pretty much the same line of “it looks so healthy!” Whether it is good or bad that that is the number one comment I’ve gotten so far is still up for debate.

When I finally do get home and grab the opportunity to shower I am reminded of my hair, or lack thereof, as I make the mistake once again of attempting to use too much conditioner. This new hair to conditioner ratio is the trickiest math problem I’ve done in ages apparently. Once out of the shower I’m reminded of the perks of the new hairstyle as it takes me approximately ten seconds to comb my hair. I am further reminded when my hair is air dried in less than ten minutes. I do run into an issue with the new length however when I look in the mirror and am stricken with how curly my hair is. What was once mild long waves has been replaced by very short and very curly locks.

With the shoulder length brown curly hair, I now sort of resemble those portraits of Jesus. Now I just need the sandals and the robe and the two of us will be identical. When the time comes for me to attempt to style my hair for a night out, all hell breaks loose. I can’t really curl it because my hair won’t keep loose waves but tight curls stick up and make me look like little orphan Annie. Straightening it isn’t much better as it won’t really stay straight for more than ten seconds anyway. When I finally give up and change into clothes that aren’t legging and a T-shirt I can’t help but look into a mirror and think “oh so that’s what my shoulder looks like in this dress.”

10 Necessities All Equestrians Should Have In Their Ring-Side Backpacks

Your guide to the perfect ring-side backpack!

There's hardly ever a time where you won't find me in the barn without my backpack. Stocked with all of my riding essentials, especially at shows, I've created a list of my top 10 necessities to keep when ring-side!

1. Hairnets. They stretch, they rip, and they disappear... so always have a backup pack!

2. Boot polish. Squeaky clean boots are a girl's best friend!

3. Water bottle.

So, you should too!

4. Power Bank. So you don't have to worry about your phone dying and you can get every minute of your ride on video!

5. Snacks

6. Fluff Monkey. Perfect for last-minute ring-side touch ups/wipe downs of boots!

7. Extra hair ties. Just like hairnets, hair ties also break and disappear. But, they are absolutely necessary!

8. Black shoelaces. No number string? No problem!

9. Band-Aids & Neosporin. One word: blisters!

10. Advil/Tylenol. You might not feel it now, but you're going to in the morning!
