Sweeping Motions

What’s messier right now — your bedroom or you computer’s desktop (or your favorite device’s home screen)? Tell us how and why it got to that state.

Messy? What is messy but an opinion based on perspective, personal preference or (learnt behaviour) from those most influential to us. What may be messy to you may be organized to me. Yes that clutter of paper in the corner strewn haphazardly between the bed and the washing basket is surprisingly organized. Old documents at the bottom, somewhat recent in the middle and very recent at the top. Oh and those books on the shelf, they are falling over that way purposefully. Oh those icons cluttering my desktop are sorted in alphabetical order. It’s all organised chaos!

Okay, okay you are right I’m just lazy or my OCD powers haven’t kicked in yet. Either way there is something about the chaos that makes me feel familiar with my personal items. My drawer is neat and tidy the first week after washing and folding and within the next week its a mess but I know where everything is. That one corner of my room is neat and tidy for a week and then I go rummaging looking for something and I never put everything back where it’s supposed to be again.

The worst, and something I just don’t have the time and energy to do, is clean the mess that is my filing system on my computer. Three hard drives, everything everywhere! Stories, short stories, notes on stories, notes on the notes of the stories. Three different picture folders, three different games folders and various software, documents and other uncategorized “junk” everywhere else. The only reason my desktop is so clean is because all those icons are hidden. Imagine that kind of mess.

So then I pit the very same question to you fellow reader:

What’s messier right now — your bedroom or your computer’s desktop (or your favorite device’s home screen)? Tell us how and why it got to that state.
