4 Ways To Become More Organized

So, you've decided you want to start organizing yourself more. Whether it's keeping track of assignments and projects or just need a way to maintain your life in order, the best place to start is finding good ways to lead a better-organized life while keeping yourself accountable for anything you need to get done. I've compiled a few tips that worked for me and can help you get you started.

1. Keep a Planner

There are a lot of options out there when it comes to planners. You should definitely think of investing in one. Whether you choose to take it with you to class or keep it in your place for you to come back and write in, it's a great idea to get one. For starters, you can plan out your whole week. That way you get an idea of the things you need to get done, you can plan out when to do them and use it if you ever forget something. I kind of works as a way to declutter your mind that way you won't have to stress out as much.

2. Maintain a clean workspace

Keeping a neat desk or workspace is key. Even if you don't use it that often, or prefer to study and get your work done elsewhere, it's important to keep it organized. No one will ever want to get anything done if their desk is a mess, and who knows, maybe that's a reason why you don't use it! For anyone who prefers to use it, you want to be able to see what your working on, have enough space, be able to locate where your papers are and what class is which. I've realized found that if my space is ever unorganized I'm less inclined to want to use it.

3. Set notifications and reminders

Setting a reminder on your phone if you'd rather not invest in a notebook or planner is a good alternative for keeping track of events. Especially if you have a lot going on or think you might forget to do something. Simply go to your phone calendar and input everything in the best part is setting up the times which you can also have multiple reminders going off a set times telling you how far away something is. If you prefer to not use the reminder on your calendar, there are plenty of alternatives like apps that can help.

4. Make a to-do list

I always found that writing things down has always been beneficial. Whether you do it on a weekly or daily basis, to-do lists are always helpful. With so many events and plans to get done, it can get hard to keep track of everything. Our attention can get scattered or we get distracted with other things that come up. If you start your day by taking a few minutes out of your day to make the list, you can always use it to look back on.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
