Staying clean can have a positive impact on your social situation. Let’s say you have come close with a member of the opposite sex. Your relationship in class continues to grow over the semester and when it is time for you to take things to the next level and socialize outside of an academic environment, the first impression you will want to have is that you are an organized individual. If you were to walk into the room of another for the first time and found that you could barely see the floor as it is covered in various articles of clothing and trash, you may be hesitant to even take on step further. Even if the person you are inviting over is not someone you are looking to know and perhaps is just a friend, they are going to feel uncomfortable, not knowing where to walk or sit. You want to make your dorm room inviting not only to others but to yourself. The habits you have now can easily become stable in your life. Meaning that if your practices being a slob now, chances are you are going to continue this bad tradition later on. Now is the time to steer the ship in the right direction, and make a positive change in your lifestyle.
Maybe you are looking for that DVD to watch with your new friend, but because it appears that a twister has recently come through your room, you are unable to find the cinematic adventure that you covet. Staying organized can do more than just help you find extracurricular items, but can also items you need to help you with your studies. However when it comes right down to it, your room is a place for you to get away from the stresses of college and relax. Give yourself the room to spread out by constructing designated areas for all of those loose items that seem to just pile up so quickly. Too many times can you be running late to class, and then be delayed further by not being able to find that specific folder or notepad you need. But going back to the example of having over someone special in your life, when you remain clean you are sending them a message that they are important to you. You are able to display your respect for them by creating an arena for he or she to feel safe and secure.
