Plans And Post-Its

May 9, 2006

A certain chem prof always said – Plan your work and Work your plan.

It’s very weird, you know. I seem to be able to do the first part of that maxim quite exceptionally. But the second part – I do mean to do that too, but determination and will just sort of frizzle away…

It just so happens that I’m a compulsive list maker, user of post-its and planner. Not a lot of people know that. Universal claim is that I’m a chaotic and disorganized individual in the extreme. 😛

Sleepy eyed and tousle haired, I entered my room this morning. Something was amiss. I distinctly remembered my room being painted a calm, ice blue. This morning, though, it seemed to have assumed a sunshine-yellow with little sections of cool blue, hot pink and neon green! I reeled. You would too if you found your room morphing itself overnight into ghastly colours – which it had no business to do!!

When sleep very kindly released my senses and I was restored to functional mode, I saw that all the calm, ice blue had been covered inch upon inch by post-its – yellow, green, pink, blue, you name it!! Astonished, I realized that I never took off any of them from as long back as Feb. 24th!! I read one out loud – it said,

“1. Electrostatics Organic Solid State Matrices Alexander
2. Watch Alexander – educative purposes
3. Take the damn day off!!” – 😛

Horrified at the prospect of parental units coming across such frivolous and flippant plans, I hurriedly ripped them all off. Wastepaper basket’s day out!

Note to self: Confine humour, however lame, to self/friends/blog.

You’re probably infinitely better organized than I am. But still, nothing like this ever happened to you??

That you make plans, stick post-its, religiously tick off finished agenda and somehow, just somehow that most important thing that you had to do got over-looked. Never had to scramble at record speed in the nick of time?

You’re intensely concentrating on integral calculus and the phone politely whirrs. But of course, it’s your bestest friend with the hottest gossip and so of course you just had to talk. And just let integral calculus be for the moment. And for the next two hours. Never happened? No?

Sigh…I guess it just happens to me.

    Nope, never happened. Especially not with integral calculus. But in college, yes. All the time.

    time is insignificant…it is the overwhelming sense of responsibility and focus that matters!! 😀

    ah….it gladdens the heart to think that i might continue the same sort of thing for the next four years!! yay! 🙂

    ya, Paddyboy, it’s not ‘just you’, familiar ending only… and you’re thinking what I’m thinking, yes?

    if thats what you are thinking too, then yes!

    its paddyMAN btw ….


    oh and s, dont blame me if i was curious. If “parental units” hadnt found the “awesomely funny” post-its during the last 2 months, the chances of them finding them today would be considered slim(will post meaning of slim later).

    They are probably avoiding your room

    knowing you, i dont blame them

    people generally do try to avoid accident-prone zones
