Step 1: Assess Your Situation
Think carefully about your living environment. Whether you are in the dorms or share a room in an apartment, odds are you are living in close quarters. Get organized! Spend a few days cleaning up your living space. Starting with small projects first, like desk drawers and closets, can leave you with a sense of accomplishment to take on larger tasks. You'll start the year with a fresh slate and a calmer demeanor. Also, remember to be as selective as possible with who you room with. It is hard enough to take care of your problems during the semester. . .why make life more difficult?
