Organizational Skills

It took me 18 years to figure out how to be organized. I used to never write down assignments, you could never see the floor of my room, and I could never remember where I put things. It was pretty bad. Over the last few years I have found an efficient way to organize and keep my stress under control.

To start out, I should say that my planner is my life. If I don’t write something down in it, I will forget that something. Every time. The second I hear my teacher mention an assignment or a possible test, I write it down. I’m taking 18 hours and have a job. I can’t afford to forget about anything. I color code my assignments and exams with highlighters. I write down everything in pencil, highlight it according to what it is, and when it’s accomplished I cross it out with a pen. There’s nothing quite like crossing off something from your to-do list! I love it.

Though my room does get messy from time to time, it’s only a few articles of clothing and some dirty dishes. It hasn’t gotten out of hand in over a year. I’ve found I feel much less stressed when my room is clean, so I force myself to clean twice a week.

I don’t know how to help others achieve organization, but I know that it’s worth the effort!
