    I Have A Desk?

    My desk is so covered with paper from so many projects that I wonder if a desk is still under the paper. The only reason I know it does is because of the drawers. The stacks and piles of paper hide normal desktop fixtures like my phone, my stapler, etc. And if I put anything...

    Do You Really Want to Know About the Mess That Is My Desk?

    We-ell. Around 10 books, but that's a given. A bottlecap from a juice bottle I got a week ago. A lock for a locker I had in grade 9. Broken headphones that were too damn expensive anyway, so I'm keeping them. A mini Beethoven action figure. A half-inch tall...

    It Can't Be Helped

    First of all, I should explain that I am from Massachusetts. Here, the greatest compliment you could give (30 years ago, at least) is that it is "wicked awesome." For those not from around these parts, wicked does not imply evil intention, it is simply an intensifier. Almost...

    Messy? Nah, Creative!!

    Phones, lighters, cigarettes, ash tray, paper, multitude of pens, paper, computer, photos, snacks, coffee. My mind is always active. I am a complex being and I love it....when someone "cleans up" just because it annoys them, I feel violated.

    Cluttered

    My desk is completely cluttered. It is covered with so much crap, it looks more like a garbage can than a desk. But I don't mind it. I seem to focus better in mess than I do in neat environments.

    Messy

    I know I'm messy. My version is that I manage by piles. That's actually pretty true. The problem is that I get too many piles going to really manage them. Does anyone have a good suggestion for keeping multiple projects (with multiple files each) managed?
