Dear Dish-It: My Room’s a Mess!

Dear Dish-It,

My room is constantly messy – I can’t seem to keep it clean. Help!

Dear Irish821,

I totally have the same problem as you do – whether it’s my room or my office, I just can’t seem to keep the clutter away! Luckily, I’ve learned some tricks on how to clean up fast – and, most of the time, keep it that way. I hope some of these tips will work for your messy bedroom!

Much Music

Since it seems like you’ve decided that you can’t stand the mess anymore, it’s time to do something about it. The best way to tackle any messy space is to do it bit by bit – and to try and have some fun at the same time! My fave way to clean is to blast my fave CD or radio station while I’m doing it. Somehow, singing along to my favorite tunes makes the chore seem less tedious (and yes, I do use the broom handle as a mic from time to time!).

Bit By Bit

Like I said before, the best way to clean your room is to do it one step at a time. I find it’s easiest to concentrate on one area of my room at a time, and not to stop until that space is clean. You might want to start with the stuff on your floor, or the papers on your desk. While you’re going through your things, divide them into three piles: one for putting away, one for throwing away and one for giving away. The last two piles are especially important – the less stuff you have, the less messy your room can get in the future.

Get Help

If it just seems like too much work to do on your own, ask your BFF or your brother to help you out – and promise to do the same for them next week. And don’t forget to reward yourselves after you’ve finished cleaning your room – go get some ice cream or go see a movie. You deserve it!

If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.

Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.

Hello. Just call me Carrots if you don't know me already. :p Anyway, I'm hoping I'll be able to make a little forum post on making friends and making sure the friendships last. ^-^ ••• I hope this helps. ••• Making friends// Making friends can be dauntless, especially if you moved schools or to a different place which is simply far away from your old friends. I mean, it's fine to keep in contact with your old friends ##-####, text, letters etc), but you do have to consider it'll be better if you can make more friends at your new location- seriously, it'll help! How to make friends// • Get talking with people- join in people's conversations; try to be a little more social- it'll be easier to make friends if you're social around people. • Have a look around- are there any clubs or events that catch your interest- maybe a drama class or art club? If you join these type of things, you're more likely to meet people who have similar interests to you. :3 • Do act yourself. That means not to be so loud that people take you in the wrong way- but don't be too quiet either- otherwise people won't notice you! • Pay attention to people when they're speaking- they'll appreciate it if you just listen to what they say and you can have your say too! • Hang out with one or two people that you already know- who knows, you might be introduced to their friends too. • Do make an effort! c: [posting more tomorrow- I'm sorry that this is absolutely terrible]
