Advice for Students: 20 Uses for a Post-it Note 

1. Mark your place in a book. It seems so obvious, yet relatively few students seem to do it. When your professor picks up with the poem or short story or chapter of the day, you’ll be on the same page. 

 2. Mark the beginning and ending points for a reading assignment: immediate feedback on your progress.

 3. Mark selected readings in an anthology. 

 4. Mark the notes or glossary at the back of a book for easy repeat access.

 5. Mark passages in a library book.

 6. Keep several Post-its on the inside cover of a datebook, planner, or notebook: now you’re prepared to leave a note anywhere. 

 7. When you sit down to work, make a small-scale to-do list on a Post-it and stick it to your desktop.

 8. Leave a Post-it on your alarm clock or inside doorknob as a reminder.

 9. Avoid fines and late fees: put Post-its with due dates on library books and DVD rentals. 

10. When there’s no Scotch tape, cut the sticky edge from a Post-it to use as fake tape. 

 11. Use the sticky edge as a temporary label for a folder. 

 12. Fold the sticky edge into a hinge to hold a piece of paper or a postcard on a wall. 

 13. Wrap the sticky edge around a cable to identify it. 

 14. Use the sticky edge to clean between the keys of your computer keyboard.  

15. Jot down less familiar keyboard shortcuts on a Post-it to keep by your computer.

 16. Which way does the envelope go when you feed it into the printer? Draw a diagram on a Post-it and stick it on your printer.

 17. If you drive an older car that doesn’t remind you that you’ve left your headlights on, use a Post-it as a reminder. When you put your lights on in the daytime, stick a Post-it note on the driver’s side window. When you leave your car, you’ll see the note and remember why it’s there.

 18. Keep a Post-it on the refrigerator and jot down what you need from the supermarket.

 19. When you go to the supermarket, remove the Post-it from the fridge and stick it on your wallet. At the store, stick the note to the handle of your cart and have both hands free for shopping. Toss the note when you leave the store. 

 20. Splurge! Use a whole pad of Post-its to make a flip book.

The December 1964 issue of Datebook magazine published the Beatles’ replies to letters from their fans. Here are some of George’s answers:

Me and my friend Doris have seen you on stage and on the telly in shows and on the news too. You always seem to be having jokes with one another. Don’t you think you would make good comedians if you tried? I bet you’d get lots of laughs. Do you plan the funny things you say or do you just make them up on the spur of the moment? I bet you make a funny answer to this letter, if you ever read it, that is. – Peggy and Doris

If we ever read your letter we will try to make a funny answer. I showed it to John and asked him to write something funny and he said try it on Paul. I showed it to Paul and he said show it to Ringo and Ringo said he wasn’t a comedian but a tragic figure and would rather say something sad. Anyway, cutting out the joking, we like ourselves as we are and don’t particularly want to be comedians but will always have a go if are ever pleaded with.

What does Ringo do with his feet while he’s playing on stage? – Monica Carney

In hot weather he takes them off and leaves them in the wing where it’s nice and cool. At other times he does other things like (1) using them to hang his shoes and socks on, (2) using them to kick other Beatles if they annoy him, (3) using them to cover up little holes in the stage for us if there’s a draught. Oh yes – sometimes he also uses them on stage to push the bass drum pedal!

Can anyone tell me how to strangle a jelly? - Brenda

Well, as I was saying to Paul as he stepped out of that frying pan I think we should…how to strangle a what??? Well, first of all you have to wait until there’s a full moon to make sure the jelly is full-grown. Then tie a knot firmly round the moon and pull hard. The jelly will think you’re such a blooming idiot that it will strangle itself laughing. As I was saying to Paul, “who are those men in the big white coats coming towards us?” [x]


George Harrison, and The Beatles, at rehearsals for The Ed Sullivan Show, 14 August 1965

Gary: “You’re dressed casually in levis spattered with paint. What’s the story behind all that paint, George?”

George Harrison: “I’m not an artist, if that’s what you’re thinking. The paint is from my painting the walls of my house in England.”

Gary: “Do you buy most of your clothes in England?”

GH: “Yes, but there are some good clothing stores in the south of France, too.”

Gary: “Do the Beatles usually take their vacations separately?”

GH: “Yes, but I haven’t had a holiday in a long time.”

Gary: “George, you seem to have the longest hair of the Beatles. Was it always that way?”

Worked like crazy!!

Tom is the artist Eva Hesse’s husband, the sculptor Tom Doyle. Hesse and Doyle traveled to Germany and stayed there from June 1964 to August 1965. The couple separated in 1966 after their return to New York. Hesse always kept diaries, and she wrote about her troubled relationship with Tom during their time in Germany when tensions in their marriage were high. She also kept small calendar books to record day-to-day events.

This facsimile edition includes the two datebooks that she kept during her time in Germany. They are accompanied by a supplementary volume that includes transcriptions of Hesse’s hand-written text and explanatory references. The datebooks “provide more information about the world that Eva Hesse inhabited in 1964 and 1965 than do the diaries, which only sporadically feature detailed accounts of journeys or encounters.” – page 8.

We particularly liked this page where Hesse wrote that she “Worked like crazy!!”

George Harrison and Paul Drew, from Datebook’s Spring 1966 issue (Image courtesy and © Georgia Radio Museum and Hall of Fame)

Drew: “Who is Steve Bimbo and the Alligators? I heard you mention him yesterday.”

George: “Steve Bimbo is nobody.”

Drew: “Who made it up?”

George: “John. It’s one of these things that we do, if somebody is having a discussion or talking about something. And one of us just doesn’t quite catch a name, and says who, and the other one instead of telling him the name, he’ll make the name up, and that’s what John did the other day.“

Drew: "Oh this is a brand new joke from yesterday.”

George: “You see I was drying my hair, with a weird hair dryer that actually shook my head, so that I couldn’t hear what everybody else was talking about so I kept sticking my head out saying who or what. And every time as I do, John would say Steve Bimbo and the Alligators. Just a little joke, you know.”

I’m sorry but did some people lose brain cells or what? Yeah, that 12 year absence thing could be true, I admit. But Karin being Sarada’s mother?? Lmao. No, not even possible in a million years. How could you even think that it’s a possibility. Trying to say that databooks are inaccurate or that the possibility still exists. No, there isn’t any room for debate. It’s always been made crystal clear so what more proof do you need? I’m even seeing this from people who should know better. Jesus. This fandom leaves me speechless. If you actually believe in that stupidity then my question to you is: are you drunk?

So, in order for Princess Hinata to get what she wants in the Last, Naruto’s character is being reduced into an asshole, who only wanted Sakura to “compete with Sasuke”, and was mind-fucking Sakura, just for fun? Even tho Sasuke never showed any romantic interest in Sakura, in the first place?  Even tho its been stated as a canon fact in the anime/manga and in datebooks that Naruto is in love with Sakura? Lmao goodbye

I might watch this movie just for a good laugh tbh
