While coxing decisions are relatively easy, I could not feel anymore different about real-life decisions. I am AWFUL at real life decision making. It's hard enough for me to decide what to eat for dinner, let alone make big decisions.
So I know pro and con lists are not unfamiliar to anyone- but in my opinion, they can't be overestimated! I'm partially a visual learner, - making charts of any variety help me to follow an idea through. I love flow charts, venn diagrams, or graphs.
This is an example (screenshot of my housing decision for next year)- I decided to live on campus a little while ago- and I've come down to choosing between living in a single by myself, or a suite with two of my friends. My friends have been roommates with each other since freshman year- they really like living with each other! Lucky for me, they've said they are happy to live with each other in the one double room and let me have the single. We'd have a shared common area and bathroom. You can see from my chart that this is the option I've decided to go with! I highly suggest all of you who are still in college take some time to think about where you're going to live in a calm and logical manner before housing selection begins because it can get cra-a-a-a-azy.
