My Personality Type Is Organized Chaos

My Personality Type Is Organized Chaos

A little mix of sanity and chaos isn't too bad.

I'm the type of person that always likes to know when things are happening, but I also like to do about a million things at once. I tend to always overbook my schedule and be running from one thing to the next, but I at least have a system for my craziness.

If you were to look into my planner, you might be a little overwhelmed by the hundreds of scribbles all in various colors and fonts. It may look like a weird type of coloring book, but really it just helps me organize everything I have going on into different categories and levels of importance. Plus, a little color helps me not dread all the things I have to do.

Aside from my scheduling, how I live and work also reflects that style of organized chaos. I’m not a terribly messy person, but I will admit that my clothes tend to gravitate towards multiple piles on my floor from time to time. They might not all be dirty, but I know where they are and when they do need to be washed.

With my school work, I have it all organized but I also have to always go back and rewrite stuff in order to get the same understanding I got the first time I got the information. It may have made sense when I first wrote it down, but looking back at notes sometimes makes me more confused than anything. So I organize myself after I go through a bit of chaos.

Not everyone functions the way that I do, but I think that being an organized chaotic person has a good balance between having my life put together and being a hot mess. Being completely organized isn’t going to make me completely happy because I know that if I tried to be that, I would go overboard. But being chaotic in a sense would also be really bad because then I’d never have order and peace in my daily life, I’d always be worried about something.

A mix of both lets me focus on certain things at a time while allowing some things get a little out of control in a good way. I don’t need to clean every single day, but I also don’t need to not clean ever. I can do all my schoolwork before the time it’s due, but I can still pace myself so that I am able to do the work to the best of my ability. Organized chaos is a good system and method for my busting life.

I Am My Top Priority In This Season Of Life, And I Am Making No Apologies For That

Truly, being my own number one priority may be a work in progress, but my life has only gotten better by it.


It has been said time and time again that your twenties are your 'selfish' years. As an extremely empathetic person, I struggled with this concept for the longest time. Always trying to please others, live up to preset expectations, and focus on those around me are common traits of mine, so it has taken great practice to fully understand the truth behind those words.

There is no other point in our lives quite like the time we are living in currently. Throughout high school, we have rules and restrictions from caring parents who may worry a little too much. After college, we have careers and families unfolding which brings about more responsibility than we can even fathom right now. The time in between is the only time where we can focus on ourselves without any (major) restrictions.

However, this is not meant as 'selfish' in a sense that you can focus only on yourself without possible repercussions on those around you. Understand this 'selfish' decade as a time to prioritize responsibility, figure out what you want out of life, and go get it. As cliche as it sounds, you really will find who you need to be.

After spending my first half of college struggling to be 'this' or 'that' for other people, I have learned some valuable lessons. More than anything, my ability to say "no" when I'm too busy or more than likely just not wanting to do something, has become my biggest blessing.

Trying to get into nursing school (and my path leading me there) has been the most time consuming, stressful, indescribable struggle, and I simply just do not have the time or patience to be a part of things I do not truly want to be anymore. Beyond that, it has taught me how to prioritize my responsibilities, set effective goals, and understand exactly what I want to do for ME.

While I still look to my family and close friends for advice and see to it that my relationships with them do not suffer, I know that by doing the right thing for me right now, it will in turn improve my relationships with them later. After all, you cannot pour from an empty glass.

Overall, do not be afraid to be selfish throughout this season of life. Put yourself and your needs first, and you will see that happiness is much more easily attainable that way. Learn to say no, work your ass off, and grow into the person you have always been meant to be.
