Spring Clean Your Bedroom

Springtime means fresh flowers, fresh air and a fresh start. What better time to clean out your room and get rid of all that old junk that’s clogging up your space and your life? Here are some tips to help get the spring cleaning started!

Pick a Day

Check your calendar and pick a day (on the weekend when you’re not busy with school and homework may be best) to do your spring cleaning. Commit to it and don’t procrastinate or change your mind!


Write a List

Before you start, make a list of things you want to accomplish during your spring cleaning. This could include sorting through all your clothes and getting rid of the ones that don’t fit anymore or that you don’t wear, wiping down your window inside and out, cleaning out your hamster’s cage, vacuuming the carpet, changing your bed sheets, etc.


Invest in Organizers

Before you start, head to your local dollar or discount store and pick out some new storage containers, bins, baskets, closet organizers, etc. After all, you can’t organize things unless you have a place to put them.


Three Boxes

On the day of spring cleaning, get three empty cardboard boxes and label them “garbage,” “goodwill” and “out of place.” As you clean out your closet, desk and under your platform bed, start filling up the boxes with things you either plan to throw out (“garbage”), give away to charity (“goodwill”) or need to find a new place for (“out of place). As soon as you’re done sorting and cleaning, take the “garbage” box out to the garbage, head down to your favorite charity and donate your “goodwill” (or call and ask to have them pick up your stuff, if possible) and find the right place to put your “out of place” stuff.


One Spot at a Time

Don’t try to clean your whole room at once. The day will go faster if you concentrate on one area at a time, like your closet first, then under your bed, then your desk, etc.


Rearrange Your Room

Spring cleaning isn’t just a time for throwing out junk and tidying up – it can also make a great excuse to rearrange your furniture and belongings for a fresh start. Try your bed out by the window or against a new wall. Move your desk to a spot where there’s more light. Get creative!


Reward Yourself

After you’ve finished spring cleaning your room, treat yourself to a little reward for a job well done!

    • Dog poop from when we fed the dog chili.
    • Some sticky gunk that was stuck to the bottom of a boat.

    last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
