I discovered the functionality of Post-it notes quite late, perhaps only on my last year in college; and frankly, I haven't got into the habit of sticking them on every known surface just yet, unlike most people. You know how irksome it can get when you got your computer monitor cluttered with notes here and there to remind you of daily tasks, hello's from friends, smiley's from dear honey, or maybe just plain crap you thought would be a good business idea when you have raise enough capital. It's a virtual carnival in Rio in there: eyes monitor-bound yet trip-hopping on one, two, four sticky notes or three. Or maybe I haven't talked about how many colors there are in the new 3M series. (Darn those neon ones, they really can get you high.)
Point here is not that I don't like them Post-its...I used to have even a software version sticky that clips on the desktop easily as well or a virtual corkboard, It's just that I have not grown much to love them fully...at times even I dread to be reminded of a freaking deadline staring me back in the eye. It's like big, bold letter exclaiming or maybe aptly, blurting out: HELLO! 2 days: report . Reminds me how some people use 2 alarm clocks to remind them to hello, wake up. It's ironic that they love these clocks aesthetically but bang them hard in anger and hate them in their functionality when they start wringing their eardrums to get up.
By the way, I still use them stickeys; and I use 3 alarm clocks.
