Things I learned when I decided to put every single sticker I could find in my room on my laptop.

please help

After a hackathon, you are always left with a lot of swag.

Shirts, bags, and, of course stickers.

So many stickers.

So of course, the most logical thing to do, is to put them all to use.

All of them.

Here are the lessons I have learned when torturing my poor laptop with all these stickers.

Google stickers have strong adhesive.

Like, good luck getting those guys off. There’s an upside down SQL sticker somewhere in that mess and it’s never going to get fixed.

why are you doing this

I’m pretty sure some of these aren’t even hackathon stickers.

Where did I even get these?

these don’t even look good

Big red stickers are boring.

Come on man, don’t monopolize my laptop lid.

didn’t you plan to put mac os on me

“Transparent” stickers are the coolest.

Check them out, they’re really neat.

you can’t even read what the sticker says

I have a lot of HackingEDU stickers.

Too many, in fact.



at least don’t wrinkle them dude

Where did I even get so many?


I hope I didn’t take all the stickers or something. Stickers are meant for sharing.

i am a thinkpad i don’t need these stickers

Still, so many stickers.

at least put another “ship it” one

Like, damn.



I had a big pile of stickers, and now I don’t. Please look forward to the next installment when I try to peel all of these off.
