The List

I have a very intimate relationship with chronic, insomnia producing anxiety. One way to circumvent my anxiety-maze is to make lists. 

In addition to the ubiquitous to do lists, long term goals, items to pack, troubleshooting steps, study guide summaries, books to read, authors to avoid, birthstones, common chemical compounds, chronological order of US presidents, British monarchies, artistic movements, percentages of the population that belong to a specific religion, and of course grocery store needs, have all been written out.

What I would find helpful, are more items like this:
