Making of a List

My friend spoke to me of bullet journaling. Here are all the things I want for myself. In 500 words. Day 8

This list thing is hard. I told another friend that I was doing this and he asked what’s so important about lists. To which I replied, “ Maybe it helps me summarize my life. Break down what I want to be doing in bite sized pieces. I think it also keeps me accountable. I have been postponing my life for a long time, pushing things back to do later..”

I guess making this list helps with the planning process. Groups of lists perhaps make the tasks less daunting. However, I am quite overwhelmed already. Who thinks in lists? Apparently, the whole world. Think about the #How to lists, or the #Of ways list, or #Things to Do lists etc.etc. Thinking about it makes my head spin. Whatever, all those lists suck. I get sucked into them all the time.

This is hard, here goes nothing.—
