    The Only Part of My World That Is Organized

    Every night I go over what I have to do the next day. I then make a to-do list so that I remember the next day what has to be done. Sadly I have to walk around with the list or I will still forget! *blank stare*

    Not real to-do lists. I tear off little pieces of paper sometimes and scribble silly things that only I'd understand. I write things from calling my mom to asking EP people for their names... If StrikerFreeze or HollowVoid is reading this, that's you.

    It seems to be a compulsion. Whenever I'm board I just start making lists...of anything, grocery lists, to do lists, lists of books I want to read or have read, fav movies, tv shows. Yeah I don't know, I don't do it all the time or anything but it is a compulsion.
