For those who love lists

April 14, 2006

I am an avid list maker. I make lists out of necessity, but I also make them because I enjoy them. Sometimes when I can’t sleep all I have to do is get a piece of paper, make a list of what’s keeping me up (usually stuff I HAVE to remember to do the next day) and then I can sleep. I make lists on my hands, on random pieces of paper while in my jumpseat, on my mirror – basically wherever I can make one, and then when I get to my planner I re-copy them in there so they be more organized. Sometimes I re-copy things that I’ve already done just so I can cross them off the list in my planner. It makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something.

The reason I thought about writing this today is because I thought of a way to make lists more fun (for those of you who don’t think they’re fun already). My list usually has stuff like pay bills, clean room, do laundry – really boring stuff. So I also write fun stuff on there (stuff that really needs to be done, mind you) like painting my nails, so then not everything on my list is a miserable chore and I can still get stuff marked off my list.

So I guess I should go pack for my trip so I can mark it off my list…
