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.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
