5 Simple Things To Do For Unorganized People

5 Simple Things To Do For Unorganized People

Follow these tips and life will be a little more easy to handle.

There are all different types of people in this world, from personalities to features. A few of the words I would use to describe myself are organized, neat, precise. Others would even describe me as such and these are qualities that I am proud of. However, not everyone likes to live a lifestyle like me and that is perfectly okay. I know a few people who are messy and unorganized, and still function fine in life! Yet I know that for some, they don't mean to be this way, but don't know how to do so differently. The following are tips for the average person who just can't seem to get out of their own way and stay organized and/or neat, but would like to try to. Here's to hopes for a little more sanity in your life!

1. Always make your bed in the morning.

This is something I do every day that makes me feel like I have a handle on things. When I get up and am getting ready for the day, it kills me to see my blankets strewn in disorder. As soon as I make my bed, I feel neater already and can mark it down as one less thing I have to do after a long day. This is something little to do that can make you feel ten times better.

2. Group items together.

Keeping sane and calm all begins in the house. From making your bed, to getting ready, your routine is a major contributor to stress. If items in your house are sorted by relevance and placed together, you will be able to find things much easier! For example, all my electronic devices are in one drawer, all my scarves in a bin. Life will function more smoothly if you know where your stuff is, this begins by taking the time to get a systematic layout. After that, it's a piece of cake.

3. Label everything.

In continuation of sorting items and grouping similar things together, labeling these things makes it loads easier. It may sound silly, but take a quick second to write what box or drawer contains what. If you're in a rush and can't recall where you put something, instead of fishing through drawers, bins, you name it, all you have to do is look for the label and voila! You just saved ten minutes at least and can proceed on with your day in a more calm state of mind.

4. Keep a bin of important contents at easy access near your door.

Before I leave the house, I always make sure I have four things: my phone, wallet, car keys, and a tiny snack. The first three is something everyone always needs with them, the last might just be me! I get a little hangry at times and with a snack in hand I will be all set. But in order to keep track of the first things, keep a tiny box or section for these at easy access, so as you are running out the door you won't forget any of them! You could even go as far as writing a check list on a white board to place write above it all, that way you can make sure you have it all and always update the things you need before you leave the house for the day.

5. Have a personal calendar.

While I am at school, I always have my planner with me. Each day of the week is mapped out with things to do and places to be. This can transfer to anybody's daily lives. Having a personal calendar or planner with you may not be ideal for some, but it will definitely help you keep track of things! When you first get one, open it up and write all birthdays and big events down -- this way you won't miss a thing! After, check out if there is a notes section and write down any important information you would need on a daily basis or in case of emergency. Then, simply take it week by week so it isn't overwhelming. Write down things you need to do, and what your schedule will look like for the day. You will know what you have to do and how much you have, then you can plan accordingly and not become overwhelmed throughout the day.

Being organized doesn't come easy to all, but it definitely takes an edge off the stresses of daily life! Implement a few of these tips into your life and I can assure you that a weight will be lifted off your shoulders. Don't judge before you try it, even just once can work wonders.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.

Know The Current Squad

Fiserv Forum, Home of the Milwaukee Bucks


Everyone in Milwaukee has heard of Giannis Antetokounmpo, but who else is part of the supporting cast?
