Making lists is very important in maintaining one's sanity when life gets pretty crazy. I never used to do it in high school, but in college I started to make them so that I could feel more important. Paul Farmer (my hero) likes to make lists so that when he finishes each task he can check off each box and say "We sure are getting a lot done!" Also you can tell a lot about a person by his/her to-do list. (See Stephie's to-do list for example).
A friend of Una and mine, Sara, in high school used to make to-do lists. One time in math, Una stole Sara's list and wrote "Kill Donna" on it secretly. Then when Sara was reading her list later on, she exclaimed "Kill Donna?!" and Una laughed and laughed. Then Sara spiked my water with arsenic, and I died instantly. After that, Una realized the horrible thing she had done, because I haunted her for the rest of her life. Don't mess with to-do lists.
