8 Reasons Having A Clean, Organized Home Makes Your Life Better

As a busy college student, it does seem impossible for my home to always be neat and clean every night, but once I do one good night of deep cleaning I swear my life improves tenfold! Having my house neat and organized instead cluttered and messy gives me a new lease on life, and here are 8 ways that cleaning your home will help your life too!

It makes you more productive.


When everything is neat and organized, it motivates you to get more done instead of hiding from the mess and being lazy!

It is a more stress-free environment. 


There's no worry of getting the dishes and laundry done before working on homework or cooking dinner and adding to the mound of dishes in the sink if all of it was already done! Now, you only have to do a couple things each night instead of feeling overwhelmed by it all.

It makes your relaxation time feel less "lazy."


Want to lay in bed and watch Netflix all night? No problem! You've got nothing else to do, so you're using your free time to RELAX, not be lazy!

When there's less mess, it's much easier to clean as you go!


If you don't let them get piled up, then you only have to wash what you used that night or for just that meal depending on how often you cook! No more standing at the sink for 2 hours scrubbing week old set in grime!

There's nothing to be embarrassed about if you have a surprise visitor.


When your house is a disaster and you hear the doorbell ring... it's not a problem anymore if you just keep it cleaned up!

When everything is organized, it's easier to find what you need!


Less mess, less germs, less sick! 


If the counters and tables are wiped down, and everything is put in it's place then there's less for germs to stick to!

It's proven fact that people sleep better in a clean environment! 


Peacefully get 8 glorious hours and wake up to no piles of clothes on the floor, all of your favorite outfits are clean, and your whole bathroom is a spotless masterpiece waiting for you to get ready in!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
