When I try to select a house or the walls or any object that I have made, it just doesn't get selected until I click exactly in the middle. It's so annoying because I have to click few times to select the object that I want. I opened a new project and it works just fine anywhere I click on the object it gets selected. but in my main project file it just doesn't work. Maybe I turned on something?

You may have hit w without noticing it. It changes the selection mode to a selection circle that you can increase using the middle mouse button. If the circle is not over the origin point of your mesh/object, you won't be able to select it.

If I click now, I couldn't select the cube.

Press w again to change the cursor selection mode. Here it is in Lasso mode, meaning if you hold the left mouse button, you can draw an area to select multiple object.

You can press w until you get the normal cursor

You can change the selection style by left clicking on the select mode for several seconds and a selection mode menu will appear. But this may not be the issue you're encountering...
