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!

I'm an older sister to a 13 year old brother. Neither of us really agree on much, either. I prefer this, he prefers that. I prefer that, he prefers this. It's natural regarding age differences. Even just a years worth can hold plenty. It's best to meet in the middle with things. Like, my brother and I for instance don't really agree on anything. But, it's good to meet somewhere with things to do together whether its agreeing on a movie to watch or playing a video-game together. Even drawing or helping each other out with something. Just keep in mind, when it comes to this, you won't always want to do what they want.

I understand this situation. Personally, you can tell your sister if you're completely sure on what happen. But, make sure she stays quiet about it until you both come to an agreement on when you should confront your parents about what you saw.

Here's something to think about @IlikeGUYS20, I can say this about myself, and I'm sure, from this post, you'd agree. I'd love to have a girlfriend, and I'd also love to have a boyfriend. I'd be open to date any gender that my romantic partner would claim. We should just see what makes us happy before we label ourselves. Thanks! :)Have a wonderful day!:rainbow ❤

You should grow comfortable with yourself before you come out. If you're not certain if you are indeed bi, then you shouldn't slap that label on yourself yet. Take some time to really think about how you feel, but don't worry too much about it. Your sexuality isn't everything. You have plenty of time to discover yourself as person. Don't rush it.
