7 Signs you're an Organizing Queen

The Organizer is your name. Spreadsheets, color coding, and planning is your game.

You are the man with the plan. Before a big event happens, you are not satisfied until a list is made and the time has been marked in your day planner.

But you and I both know being a lean, mean, organizing queen goes way deeper than that.

1. Color coding and alphabetizing just feels... right.

There's nothing like looking at a bookshelf or your closet and seeing every single item in order. Exactly in the right spot.

2. You can't live without your planner.

How does one simply organize their daily life? With a day planner, of course! You couldn't keep it all straight without writing it down with dates and times.

I honestly would like to thank my planner for helping me keep my sh*t together. Without you, I would have forgotten all of those appointments, birthdays, and exams.

3. Pinterest is your best friend.

Christmas party planning? Pinterest. Christmas gifts for your nephews? Pinterest. Boyfriend's birthday coming up? Pinterest. It's your go-to for inspiration, organization hacks, and peace of mind.

4. Making lists calms you down.

I'm not kidding. Whenever I get stressed out about something, I make/revise/look at a list. I literally will cross things off and check it twice. It's calming to know that something that seems crazy or out of control can be organized.

5. Your life would not be the same without spreadsheets.

Spreadsheets: what are they good for?

Making lists.

Organizing finances.

Doing math.

Organizing people.

Categorizing.

Color coding.

Putting your life together.

I have no idea how people don't use spreadsheets on a regular basis.

6. People depend on you.

You have, and always been, the "man with a plan". By the time the next vacation out of state rolls around, you have mapped out two routes, made packing lists, and executed all of the "traveling hacks." My family doesn't call me the "cruise director" for nothing.

7. You always appear to have it all together.

You have your entire life organized, right?

Wrong.

You don't always have it all together. You, like any other human, get the impossible things thrown at you from all angles. However, you know that you eventually will come up with a plan, make a spreadsheet, and find a way. After all, you are an organizing queen.

There is no event too tough to organize for you. It's your superpower; your sidekicks just happen to be spreadsheets and day planners.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

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.
