8 Reasons Why I Love Being Organized
organizingu.com

Growing up and going to school, we were all taught, among various subjects, useful skills. Organization was a big one. While many kids struggled with being tidy and organized, for some reason I just got it. Not only did I understand what it meant to be organized, but I liked organizing things and seeing the final product. Fast forward many years, I am now 19 and still love having my things neat and organized. Here are eight reasons why I love being organized.

1. It is very rewarding.

I don't know what it is about it. Maybe it's the process of figuring out how to organize things, or maybe it's that it is pretty time consuming. Nevertheless, seeing that finished product is priceless. When that closet is nice and organized it feels amazing, especially knowing I did it all by myself. It feels good to know that all that hard work paid off, and that makes me very happy (maybe more than it should).

2. I know where to find anything.

Having my stuff organized means that everything has a particular place. When organizing, I usually create a system that makes sense to me so that I know where things are. This means that when I'm looking for something, it can easily be found and I don't have to scramble and go crazy looking for it.

3. It saves a lot of time.

This goes hand in hand with knowing where to find stuff. When everything is neat and organized, and things can be easily found, it saves a ton of time and makes tasks more efficient. I don't have to waste time looking for things, and I don't have to stress about having "lost" something I need. This is very helpful amidst busy schedules and stressful days.

4. It saves space.

When things are organized they tend to use less space because they are neatly put away as opposed to being messy and clumped somewhere. Less used space means that there is room for more stuff. And who doesn't want more stuff?

5. Being organized also means being tidy.

For someone who loves organization as much as I do, tidiness is a perfect bonus. What's nice about it is that it comes naturally with organization, so I don't even have to try to be neat. Again, it's rewarding and looks really good.

6. Organization also means being clean.

It's kind of like a package deal: not only do you get organization, but you get cleanliness and tidiness too. You really can't be organized and messy at the same time, so it works out great.

7. Everything looks better when organized.

This is a combination of everything I've already said. Not only does organizing feel great, but it looks great as well. I love taking a step back and admiring my hard work after spending hours organizing. I don't really know how to explain it otherwise, but it makes me feel all happy and warm inside.

8. It's fun.

OK, so this probably doesn't apply to everyone. Maybe it barely applies to anyone. And maybe this is a sign that I'm a little bit of a neat freak, but that doesn't change the fact that I actually enjoy organizing things. It's kind of therapeutic and fun to go through all my stuff. It feels good to get rid of things I no longer need and replace them with new stuff. Also, there is no better feeling than seeing the finished product.

All jokes aside, I do think that organization is an important skill to learn and is very helpful. It's not necessary to be as passionate (or crazy) about it as I am, but it's worth giving it a try because it makes life a lot easier.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

35025

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
