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!

Irish821

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!

There's a rare disease which currently affects 80 individuals worldwide, called Progeria. A person who is born with this condition experiences rapid aging, and will live to be, on average, about 13 years old. ...how old are you? If you were born with this disease, how would you live differently? Are you older than 13? What would change in your life, if you knew you were living on borrowed time? Are you younger? How would you perceive the world differently, if you knew you only had a few years left? Life is the most precious gift a person can receive. Don't take yours for granted.

I've been through a heck of a lot too. I have severe health problems and there were so many times I have lain in a hospital bed thinking I was going to die. I deal with severe depression from that along with the matter of loneliness from not being able to leave the house a whole lot my whole life. I don't have any friends  or really anything to do. I almost - you know- did it once. But then after that I went through a chain of dark events ( that I would rather not say for the topic is too arguable on this place. However, in a Catholic way of speaking, I have met a group of Legion. :P ) That practically changed my mind around into a more depth view of life. We, as humans, take life too seriously. I mean it. Is your life really that bad? Really? Are you alive? Are you speaking to another human who might actually smile at you once in your life? Did you see that pretty butterfly that just went by? We are so used to seeing a better, pampered life that tv shows or someone we know has, and we get jealous. " My life is horrible". Oh really? Did you say hi to your dog today? He's happy to see you isn't he? Smell the rain coming? Doesn't it smell good? We fail to look at the small good things in life and concentrate on " Jim broke up with me. I'm never going to be happy again!" Well....maybe Jim wasn't the guy you are supposed to end up with. Ever think of that? Ever think " Well maybe there is an even better guy out there I am supposed to be with! I just have to try and find him!" Eh? I've also learned: Not everyone is going to like you. No matter how nice you are and how much you try to be friendly, Not everyone is going to like you. I just went through this a few days ago with someone on here. She didn't want to talk to me because I was friends with someone who does bad things. Now that is very stereotypical and not right. Just because she does bad things mean I do bad things too? No. It means I accept everyone. Does that mean I accept the bad things she does? NO. But does that mean I have to not like her because of the bad things she does? NO. I love the person, but not the actions, and it breaks my heart to see the person do these things but i still love them. Get it? It's like if your child does something bad. Does that mean you hate them forever? NO. I try to help people, and for some reason i am attracted to those who are wronged or in pain. Another thing, I love horror. Like a lot. I have it allll over my page. Sometimes that scares people and they might say to me " What do you want?" or " You scare me" before I even say hi. You know what else? There are SO many people here that have told me that I am the nicest person on here they have ever talked to. So, some more stereotypes for you. Main theme is, take a break ( seriously) stand outside or something and just look at the sky, breath in the air and watch that bird carry a worm to her nest. Don't judge others by passed on information. Life is good if you make it so.
