Is your hamper overflowing with clothes from the last two weeks? Have a crap-ton of schoolwork to do? Haven't showered in days? Same, honestly. Welcome to college life.
(Don't worry, I'm all clean now.)
I'm going to share some tips on time management, so you can do all the above mentioned AND have time to breathe (whoa!).
The laundry room at Purchase is Hell. It's hot, underground, and no one has respect for you down there. Some people are plain rude, just like in an everyday setting, however there's an abundance of "rude" in the laundry room. Some people take your laundry out of the dryer, when there's at least 20 minutes left, and place it on top of the dryer (if you're lucky), and proceed to use it. I've seen it happen, and it happened to me before. Don't put off your laundry, because it'll only accumulate and be more of a hassle.
Who has time to do schoolwork when there's so much to do on campus? Especially at Purchase, there's always something going on. But keep that in mind! THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING AND IT WILL COME BACK! There will always be a show to see or a game to go to, but remember why you're there in the first place. Remember what you're working towards.
And what about that showering thing? I used to shower every night before going to bed. Now, I shower at four in the afternoon because it's the only time I can. I'm serious! If I showered in the morning it means I would have to wake up earlier, and who wants to do that? I'm already losing sleep as it is. Plus, at four no one is on my floor anyway, so I can daydream and sing all I want in the shower without having to rush.
College is hard, and I thought I could handle balancing everything, but it's tough. Tougher than I thought. (It's been two months now??) Not the work itself, the AMOUNT I get. On top of that, showering, eating, laundry, and relaxing.
Sometimes, you need a day. Pamper yourself. Stay in and just dance around your dorm. Go for a walk. Write a novel. Find an activity that takes your mind off of everything for a while, but make sure you're ready to get out there again!
If you have a calendar, mark the day you want to do some housekeeping. Then make like Shia LaBeouf and "JUST DO IT!"
