What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
"Well, my bookshelf isn't really organized, but it will be someday! Maybe. I like organizing books in alphabetical order by last name then title. They're just easier to find that way and it really annoys me when books are out of place in a…"
"I have over 200 books and I organize it by height basically. Though, first its nonfiction, graphic novels, folklore/mythology, anthropologies, classics, drama, poetry, height. Then I group authors together.
LibraryThing does sound so useful…"
"I only really organize by books by series and then in those series in the order the story is. In fact when I am at a book store or a library and the books in one series are not arranged in that order I get annoyed."
"I used to have all my books organised by genre, author, and series. I moved house, and my entire family's books are either in bookshelves, but not organised beyond non-fiction or fiction, or in piles. I have books all over my desk, in piles on…"
"Well, on the first level of my shelf, there are the books who have black covers. (Twilight [13-year-old phase, plus, I can't actually throw them away, can I?], Vampire Diaries, Vampire Academy etc)
I have the trilogies/series on the second…"
"I have three broad categories: Hardcover, Paperback and Textbooks/Yearbooks.
The yearbooks and hardcovers go together arranged by height.
Paperbacks start on the next shelf and take up the rest of my built-in bookcase also arranged by height - but…"
"Shelf 1: my Hunger Games display because I loved those books so much.
Shelf 2: Other dystopian books, books based on mythology, historical fiction, and my 7th grade social studies textbook.
Shelf 3: More historical fiction, mystery, science fiction,…"
"I don't arrange them in any way at all. Although, I do reserve one shelf for just series books, and another shelf for books that I really, really enjoyed. And I have one shelf just dedicated to books that I own but have yet to read. And for the…"
"I think you can get a good understanding of my organisation system when you look at my shelf of textbooks. Logic would dictate I organise them by subject, but it looks so much prettier when organised by height! This does mean that reading left to…"
"I have one shelf for my favorites, and one shelf for everything else. My favorites shelf is all fantasy, and the top shelf is devoted mostly to Harry Potter and Werewolf/Vampire fantasy, and the second is devoted to everything else.
My other book…"
"I wish I had that many books! I'm just starting my collection. I used to borrow a lot of books, but now I'm starting to buy them more often.
Right now, I only have about 40 showcased and another 20 on the top shelf in my closet. More are…"
-collections of each author
-signed books (only have a couple)
But it's hard to really organize. Up until recently I owned almost 400 books but I started running out of room so I…"
Well the way I remember it, when you leave school you leave it all behind and never look back.
Some of my friends stayed in touch and some didn’t, but all old grudges and hatreds of time wasted achieving nothing, was all forgotten and I just moved on and became me.
Everything that seemed so important and so stress full just slipped away and for me life all made sense again.
I was told I’d hate the working world and I love it, I was told it would all be hard and stressful and I’d miss my school days well, its not hard its not stress full and I do not miss them at all.
All the childish arguing and (bare in mind I went to an all boys inner city school) the fighting gone.
And then I was stupid enough to become a cop so now there’s a lot of adult fighting and arguing lol, but now I get treated like a hero for it lol. Love my life.
I think we might have stumbled onto the problem with being a nerd fighter girl just there, your not aware of how cute you are. You get overwhelmed by your intellectual superiority (there’s nothing wrong with saying it if its true) which obviously intimidates and confuses the guys around you, and you completely ignore the hotness.
And being in anyway bright is a huge drag on your life in most cases anyway, try being the guy who wants to discuss La Grange points when you’re learning to box.
At any rate, not that you’ve asked for my opinion, though if I waited for people to ask when would I give it, I suspect many clever guys in your future.
