{5/100 days of productivity} | I feel really inactive when it comes to making original content, but anyways today was the first time i took public transportation to someplace other than manhattan, and it was stressful. I dropped by this cute cafe two days in a row, and i still can’t get enough tbh 


third day in a row posting original content, i’m on a roll, lol ^.^ 

this is my study heaven: my desk. it’s quite new and not completely finished yet, i want to add a few more plants and pictures, but i’m already pretty happy with it :)

i hope the weather clears up in the next few days so i can post prettier pictures, but that’s the best i can do for now with my crappy phone camera ._.

tomorrow i’m going to vienna to go shopping, maybe i’ll take some pictures and post them :>

  1. Put on a good playlist. I like to listen to hip hop, and sometimes EDM when I’m cleaning. Upbeat music is better, in my opinion. Whatever music you like is fine, as long as it motivated you. Play it loud if you can.
  2. Do the easy parts first. See some garbage? Pick it up and throw it away. Dirty clothes on the floor? Stick them in the laundry. Old assignments you will never care about again? File them away or recycle them. You have to get rid of things you know that you will never use. Get rid of as many things as you can. After this step you should see a significant difference in the space you are trying to organize. 
  3. Set up specific locations for things you use a lot. Find a holder for your loose pens, and put it within arms reach of your workspace. If you wear a jacket every day, it might be worth buying a wall hook for it. Labels are great, because they allow you to instantly know if an item is in the correct place or if it’s gone. You don’t need any fancy or expensive organizers, just the furniture you have, a sharpie, and some masking tape.
  4. Make sure the most useful items are out, and others aren’t. If I don’t use something very often, I put it away, out of sight. This makes my room appear a lot more organized, because I only have a few items out in the open.
  5. Finally, ask the hard questions. For me, if I haven’t worn an item of clothing in over a year, I get rid of it. You have to ask yourself, Do I really use this item? Does it contribute to my life or does it just take up space? Does this item make my space considerably uglier or more cluttered? Giving honest answers will allow you to know if the item is worth keeping or not. At this stage, when you have eliminated all of the unnecessary items, you may consider investing in a cute shelf or set of drawers, etc. but that is completely optional. 
  6. Keep it up. This is the hardest step. Every time you use something, put it back in its designated space. After a while it becomes a habit, but it will be difficult initially. Don’t give up! It’s worth it!

It's a joke, but was dyeing hair blue actually a thing back then?

I can’t find much on blue hair dye that isn’t referring to blue-black, however…
