Lists: The Backbone of Everything That I Do

I want to jump right in with something a bit abstract that I like.


I love making lists. I like to-do lists, packing lists, countdowns, budgets (kind of), etc.

The most recent list I’ve been working on is a list of post ideas. It’s one of the most fun lists I’ve made because it’s just a list of things that I like. Everything on this master list is a thing that makes me happy. It’s got 38 items on it right now, and I think that’s pretty good because each one has the potential to become a blog post.

I like lists so much because they are a way to organize thoughts. I like how flexible lists are.  Lists are like the next step after freewriting in a project for me. After I’ve taken the time to get some of my thoughts out about an idea, lists are a way to start organizing those thoughts so that I can do something with it.

How I use lists

  • bill tracking.
  • using the Bullet Journal system to keep all my to-do lists in one place and keep me organized and motivated in my day-to-day life.
  • to help me get back on track when I get overwhelmed.
  • grocery shopping and remembering all the things that I went to the store for.

In the time it has taken me to write this post I’ve also started a new list and added to my big post ideas list. I like how just writing something down can take a little bit of the weight off of me trying to remember it.

Do you love making lists? Do you love having a list to use to get things done?

First Post Part 2

It’s been a while since I last posted here. That’s something I think almost everytime I end up here, even if I don’t type it.

I come to you this time, not with a quick update, but with a purpose. A purpose for this blog going forward.

There are a lot of things in the world right now that annoy and anger me. In my daily life, I tend to dwell on those things, even while I cling to things that make me feel better. As I move forward in my life I want to use this space to share the things that I really enjoy. I want to talk about and celebrate the things that I like.

I’ve already started a list. It’s a pretty broad in subject matter. There are movies, tv shows, books, artists, people, and concepts. I just want to take the time in my day to talk about the things I like. Instead of focusing solely on the things that annoy or upset me.

I hope that some of these things are things that will make other people happy, or that I can introduce something I like to someone else, and they might like it as well.

I am an excited geek, and I can’t wait to share my excitement with you.
