5 Ways to Organize your Room

5 Ways To Keep Your Room Organized

Feeling like your stuff is everywhere? Here are five ways to feel more in control!


When coming home for the summer from being away at school, it seems like my room has become dominated by these massive piles of clutter. At first, the task of going through all of this clutter seems very daunting. It can be very easy to just ignore the clutter and continue to add into it. Yet, once you start organizing your room, you will feel much more in control of not only your room, but your whole life. Here are some strategies that have helped me to be able to organize my room.

1. Use labels.

One reason why people stay disorganized is because they do not have designated spots to put things. When labeling bins, it gives you spots to put your clutter, so it doesn't end up piled on your dresser. The labels can act as a reminder for what goes where, so everything can stay for a longer amount of time where it belongs. You can have some fun with making the labels by using fun colors and styles to go with your room.

2. Put things away sooner. 

There are so many times when I find myself running into my room and throwing my books on my bed before running out. Then, overtime, the books end up all over my room. If I had just put them away in the first place into the spot where they belong, they would not end up sprawled all over my room. It only takes a few extra seconds in the day to make sure that you put things away in the right places. It saves much more time in the long run because you don't end up having to search all over your room just to find the one thing that you needed.

3. Put things where you need them. 

Organize your room so that alike things are spaced out to where you need them the most. For example, you don't want your makeup and hair supplies across the room from where your mirror is. You know you're going to end up moving them by your mirror anyway. This will save you a lot of time in the morning, and will make it easier to keep things where they belong for a longer amount of time, to prevent the need to reorganize your room again.

4. Use a hamper.

One of the key things that end up all over my room are my clothes. If you give everything in your room a place to go, you need to include your clothes as well. Putting a hamper in your room will keep your room much more organized by giving your clothes a place to go. Having a hamper will also make doing laundry much easier by eliminating the need to pick up all your dirty clothes from the floor when it's time to do laundry.

5. Get rid of things you don't need. 

Be honest with yourself, are you ever going to wear that hello kitty shirt you have been keeping in your drawer for all these years? If the answer is no, it's time to get rid of it. You can free up more space than you think by simply getting rid of things. You can finally put the things you use in the places that were once dominated by things you never touched. A great place to give clothes you no longer fit in or wear is to Good Will. This way, you are giving your clothes away to people who actually need them. It will help families out while clearing up the space you desperately need in your room. If you are unsure where to donate your clothes, you can go onto http://www.goodwill.org, and locate the goodwill bins nearest to your house.

8 Lyrics From T. Swift's New Song 'You Need To Calm Down' That Will Give Your Instagram The Strong Female Empowerment It Needs

Let this girl-power ballad spark your insta-piration for your next post.


If you've ever experienced cyber-bullying, or if you ever feel caught up in our over-critical society, Tay Swift's new song "You Need To Come Down" is the song for you. While we live in a world with free speech, and especially as a journalist I am all for that, sometimes its best to think before you speak - or tweet. We should all try to be understanding and kind no matter what the circumstance, even if it means not clicking send on some Twitter rants. These lyrics are a friendly reminder to stay calm and focus on what's important.

1. "Say it in the street, that's a knock-out. But you say it in a tweet, that's a cop out."

If this isn't the call-out message of the year on cyber-bullying (in song, at least), I don't know what is.

2. "But I've learned a lesson that stressin' and obsessin' about somebody else is no fun."

We all need to remember at times that getting mixed up in drama isn't fruitful for our lives or growth.

3. "Like can you not step on my gown? You need to calm down."

Don't let the haters control you or stop you from living, just tell those voices to calm down.

4. "Why are you mad when you could be glad?"

Focusing on hate or being critical can be exhausting, and it's better to focus on the good things.

5. "Sunshine on the street at the parade, but you would rather be in the dark ages."

Show people that going into the light is so much easier than they realize when they are stuck in a drama-cloud.

6. "You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace."

Instead of trying to have the last word in every fight, try to be the peace-maker instead.

7. "Control your urges to scream about all the people that you hate."

Hate never made the world go 'round. Hate was never what Jesus spoke about. And some things just aren't worth using energy to yell at.

8. "But we all know now we all got crowns."

Don't be afraid to show that you are a princess and no one can take your crown.

This song is not just a collection of Insta-quotes, but also a call-out for all of us to live better lives, to remain a positive and uplifting human in this cancel culture world. By no means should we remain silent on important issues or let people get away with bad things, but we can choose to not get mixed up in petty drama that won't matter in a week. Let's agree to be kind to one another.

These Are The Last Days

Without a doubt, the events that are occurring in this world are fulfilling Bible prophecy.


Today's individuals in the 21st century have completely shifted to an ideology that is well-accepted among many millennial's that the system of religion has caused a ton of division among the inhabitants of the earth, which is true. With the various different beliefs, doctrines, and religious ideologies it's obvious to see why individuals cannot follow a belief because of the variety of religions. The amount of religions out here is like a buffet of different religions and many can't choose what is truth and what isn't. Especially within the the religion of "Christianity," there are many denominations and different beliefs, and the result of this is that many individuals have utilized this notion of the variety of religions and denominations to completely reject religion and follow after their own will. Even though many can utilize this as an excuse to not draw close to God, that will not be a valid excuse when they stand before God on why they didn't repent of their sins, and get baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ. However, the ignorance of the human race and their rebellion against God and his word is paving the way for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Though many may claim they have a relationship with God and that they're a Christian, they undoubtedly deny him with their works.

This world is becoming increasingly wicked, to the point where it's not even safe to just go to the supermarket because of the fear of somebody coming there and committing a mass shooting. The world is not getting any better, but in fact, it's actually getting worse. Rumors of wars are running ramped and individuals are turning towards their own lusts, and ultimately turning their backs towards God. With police shooting increasing, gang violence increasing, foreign warfare increasing, the wickedness in entertainment increasing, and an economical collapse creeping it's way into the financial markets it's without a doubt that this world is coming to an end.

Not only are there signs that Jesus is coming back through the events that are occurring in the secular world, but also within today's modern "churches." The Bible says 2 Timothy 4:3-4 " For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths." Churches across the world have completely forsaken the Bible, and turned the utilization of church into a pursuit of money and wealth, while removing the preaching and teaching of sound doctrine. This horrifying doctrinal change in the pulpits of America is undoubtedly a sign that Jesus is returning imminently because churches are preaching lukewarm messages that aren't equipping believers in Jesus Christ to be spiritually stronger and wiser when it comes to the things of God. Churches have completely discarded core doctrine and beliefs, and substituted the preaching of sound teaching to becoming a rock concert with a motivational speech. Churches all over the world have completely denounced true repentance, baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ, the infilling of the Holy Ghost, and most importantly the oneness of God in the exchange of the traditions of men and money.

The reluctance and refusal of many of these organizations and churches to preach biblical truth has displayed that many churches are in the business of tickling ears and making individuals feel good so they can receive more tithe money and offering. They no longer desire to preach repentance or things that will edify and assist the congregation to be prepared to stand before God. The disturbing part about it is that the sins of the world are creeping right into the churches of America, and the people in the church don't even know they're sinning because the preacher won't preach out against it. Sins such as fornication, homosexuality, the love of money, pride, adultery, lying, gossiping, and idolatry are no longer being preached on pulpits but rather just "grace," which is not preparing congregations to stand before God, but are actually fulfilling biblical prophecy and preparing the church to be thrown into the eternal lake of fire.

Many create the excuse that they're leaving "religion" for an intimate "relationship" with Jesus Christ, but all that means is that people are leaving true biblical teachings to make an excuse for their lifestyle, and to refuse and neglect sound teaching. The Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day { The coming of Jesus Christ} will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction." The great falling away is occurring right in front of everyone's faces! Professing Christians are leaving sound teachings and going after preaching that are not effective nor beneficial for their spirit. The common belief is that true biblical teaching if too harsh and because of that they go after teachings that don't keep them in "bondage." These "Christians" desire a lukewarm teaching that will allow them to have one foot in the church, and one foot in the world.

To conclude, even with the natural disasters occurring in America that should be enough to display that Jesus Christ is coming and that his second coming won't be "peaceful." There are multiple wildfires occurring in California, and tornadoes even arriving in the East Coasts of America, This world is in absolute chaos! From the political system all the way down to the entertainment being released. Good is being called evil and evil is being called good. These are the last days and when Jesus Christ returns we MUST be on his side because this world will be destroyed with fire. For a man to be on Jesus' side when he returns they must obey Acts 2:38 which states "Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
