Order in my universe

Organizing things makes me feel good. I spent 2 hours this evening going through this gigantic pile of bills and other random things and filing them away. There's a nice piece of carpet that was hidden for months under this huge stack that is finally getting a chance to breathe again.

I love order. It just makes me happy. Most of the time my life feels extremely busy and chaotic, so it's nice to have some measure of control over my surroundings. I will never be the most organized person in the world, but I still highly enjoy coming up with interesting organizational schemes. It feeds my obsession.

Oh I am so the same way! My roommate in college used to tease me that I spent more time organizing and making lists to do things than actually doing them. And I have to admit, I put things on lists that I've already done so I can check them off.

I *try* to be organized, but it doesn't always happen. So, if you want some more piles of stuff to organize, come on over! :)

Organization rocks. I love it. LOVE.

I guess this explains why I am a librarian. :)
