Today, I’d like to teach you how to clean your desk! Due to online learning, and increased spare time, I’ve been at my desk a ton. Unfortunately, it’s gotten a bit messy. Here’s how I like to clean my desk:
To start with, grab a trash bag/ trash can and pick up any trash and spare papers you have on or around your desk! Then move on to clearing dishes, and eventually the surface of the desk.
Depending on how messy your space is, you may want to clear your draws and shelves as well! I’d recommened physically moving everything off of the desk.
Do you really need it? Take a look through everything you just took off of your desk and ask yourself a couple of questions.
- Do I use it often?
- Does it work well?
- Is my desk the best place to keep this item?
If the answer to all of the above is yes, then keep it on/in your desk! If it is no, then either take time to throw out or move the item now, or make a clear pile to take care of later. Before putting all of the keep items back on your desk, complete the next step!
Use a slightly damp cloth, or special cleaner to wipe down your desk, and if you want, the drawers and shelves of your desk. If you have a lot of storage containers this could be a good time to clean those too!
Now it’s time to put everything back! Organize what you want to keep stored in drawers and shelves, and put that back first. Then place your most commonly used supplies on the top surface of your desk.
And you’re done! I hope this motivates and helps you all to clean your desks, personally I find it a bit overwhelming, but if you clean it this way and put everything back in the proper place, you shouldn’t have to clean it again for quite a while!
Happy studying :)
p.s if you have any tips on canva graphics, they’d be greatly appreciated- as you can tell I’m not the most talented yet…
given these extraordinarily difficult times, productivity should NOT be a priority, and it’s okay to step back and focus on other things. personally i try to center myself by making a list of things that are bothering me at the moment (things i want, things that scare me, things that worry me) and divide them into categories:
1. a task that needs to be finished right now to help me accomplish a big deadline on a certain date (aka studying for an exam)
2. things that make me dissatisfied but can be fixed with discipline or continuous work and some time (my grades, or the state of my fitness)
3. things that i THINK are urgent but probably arent, and can probably be done during an appropriate time (for example, ive been fussing over my wardrobe. which is pointless. because i dont go out. and there are more important things to be done)
4. things that are bigger than my personal problems which SEEM hopeless, but i have a duty to do whatever i can to help fight it (our current political situation in my country and in Hong Kong, the US, etc.)
5. things that are beyond my control.
once i evaluate whats important, what isnt, and what i can do to help each of my problems, it becomes easier to stay on task school-wise, and still be able to address my needs, and (in very very small ways) the needs of my community.
i know things seem hopeless, but we have our voices, our brains, and our hands. do the most to help yourselves, and the people around you. and always— take care, and stay safe.
I just finished resuming 14 journals
I studied sociological, didn’t eat a lot and went cycling to far off lands.

Mon - What is your native language?
I am from Indonesia, so my native language is indonesian.
Tue - Do you speak any other language? Are you currently learning any?
I speak english, and there’s another language at my hometown, javanese. I am learning italian, it is frustrating -_-. I used to learn chinese but that language is hard as hell.
Anyone else re-planning out their lives this year or is it just me?
Hello! My name is Anastasia (ah-nuh-stah-zee-uh) but I’ve gone by Stazi (stah-zee) for as long as I can remember! I’m 21 and I just wrapped up my junior year of undergrad! I am double majoring in both Political Science and Spanish and I’m hoping to be accepted into an international law program. I’m pretty savvy with international-related things— I speak Spanish and have also taken classes in French, Italian, Arabic, Russian, and German! Honestly, I want to speak every language there is! I’ve been studying for my LSATs and to say I’m overwhelmed would be an understatement! I don’t really know what to expect from this test, which is mainly why I made this blog. I wanted to document my studying experience and possibly get feedback from the lawblr community here. I’m really nervous and excited to be on this law journey but there’s no turning back now!
