Why do we make lists? Me? I have a mild disposition towards perfection. Not as much as Sheldon Cooper, but not less than Sherlock Holmes. After all, I do possess a sock drawer index :p
- I hate it when people get their grammar or punctuation wrong. Especially on the internet, because, well, you could get it checked if you had a doubt!
- I particularly feel at peace if I am able to finish my tasks on time and am able to get stuff punctually.
And well, that is one reason as to why I make lists. I feel more comfortable knowing that I won’t miss out on anything that is expected of me.
I make lists for all reasons, starting from absurd to astounding too – something as simple as packing my bag, to making sure that the International Space Station stays, well, in space.
Sometimes, I have also made lists to make sure I don’t forget to download some songs, or that I watch a few tutorials to pick up a few software skills.
- I learnt photo editing online, thanks to Youtube
- I learnt blogging using learn.wordpress.com
- I also learnt several software tricks and tips, thanks to a very famous search engine, whose logo, has lots of primary colours.
For example, holding down Alt, and double clicking on a file, makes the properties tab to open up.
- I also learnt that several people, even in the presence of several online grammar checkers, make a lot of grammar mistakes.
Sometimes, I am quite wistful. Rather, my lists are quite wistful. I tend to make really absurd lists with subjects that have about less than – 25% of happening. That would include
- The ability to read people’s minds
- The ability to fly
- The belief that by blogging about it, people might change their online grammar mistakes
- What the hell, I would love any of the above said superhuman abilities.
- Creating an army of minions
- Having a robot army
- Learning all the languages of the world
- And of course, believing that by making lists, I am making sure that the International Space Station stays, well, in space.
