Lists

Thursday, March 27, 2008

I am fond of lists. I get this odd satisfaction from putting a check mark beside each item on the list. For silly me, a check mark is synonymous to an accomplishment.

I have a list of things To Do Before the Day Ends, To Do Before the Week Ends, To Do Before the Month Ends and To Do Before My Life Ends. Complementing these personal To Do lists is a joint To Do list that I share with my significant other, which keeps getting longer and longer as we think of countless ways to enjoy our life together.

Paired with the To Do list is my shorter but less mundane and a lot trickier NOT To Do list – NOT To Say, NOT To Eat, NOT To Think, NOT To Feel – of which most I end up doing eventually, anyway. There’s also my lists of Books To Read, (of which to my dying day, I would scarcely finish even a quarter of the books listed), of Things To Buy, of Things To Be Grateful For Everyday, of Ideas and Concepts To Muse With, of Outfits To Wear, of Things To Remember and of Things To Forget.

The last one is, by far, the most absurd of all lists. Why do I need to remember what I want to forget? Isn’t it utterly ridiculous to note down what I want to entirely ignore? Oh yes. Trying to list down everything just makes a crazy person even crazier.

A list of things to forget? Hmm.. That reminds of nurses waking their patients to give them their sleeping pills. :)
