A Love of Lists

I have a confession to make… I am a list maker. I don’t mean just your everyday to-do list which to be quite honest – I have one every single day as part of my bullet journal. No, I am a compulsive list maker, to-do lists are the most prominent of those lists which I constantly find myself making. But it is not the only type of list that I make.  Which is why I thought I would write this blog post (in a list like form) listing off all of the lists I use and why I love them.

  • Packing Lists
    No matter where I’m going or for how long for, I make a list! But not just a single list, multiple lists, lists that are even divided into categories and subsections of what I need to pack. This is because I have a deep fear or forgetting things and rather than going over everything three times in my head, having a written list so I can check off each and every item calms me down and makes me less worried.
  • Book Lists
    Book lists are essential to me because if I don’t have it written down in a list then I will forget – my memory is notoriously bad at times. But I have multiple lists, lists for book series I’m reading (In Death and Star Wars mainly) lists of proofs which I have that I need to read, lists of books to review, list of books I’m selling. Lots of bookish type lists! Oh, and of course books I’ve read this year list as well!
  • Film Lists
    I love a good movie franchise but sometimes in a series, I just have to list them out and check them off – though not always in order *cough* marvel *cough*. But I also have lists of films I’ve seen with friends, list of films I’ve gone and seen throughout my life (well the past few years at least) and films I want to go and see when they come out!

Overall, I think I make a lot of lists but what are the main lists that you have and use regularly?

  1. You are preaching to the choir on this one. I make lists all the time related to my writing processes so I don’t forget little tidbits about characters, YouTube music playlists for inspirations and themes, reading lists for goodreads, library lists, the lists can and will go on!

    1. Lists are essential and you just reminded me to start thinking about Father’s day too! Need to make a list for that to figure out what to get my Dad!

    1. I don’t get all my things done every single time, often when I feel unproductive I add stuff on my list for the day just to tick it off within seconds!
