Where have all the flowers gone
pete seeger

Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls picked them, ev'ry one.
When will they ever learn? Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the young girls gone, long time passing?
Where have all the young girls gone, long time ago?
Where have all the young girls gone?
Gone to the young men, ev'ry one.
When will they ever learn? Oh, when will they ever learn?

چه بر سر گل ها آمده؟ دختر بچه ها همه جا گل ها را چیده اند.

چه بر سر دختر بچه ها آمده ؟ همه به دنبال همسران خود رفته اند.

چه بر سر همسران آمده ؟ همه به لباس سربازی درآمده اند.

چه بر سر سربازان آمده؟ همه در گورستان ها خاک شده اند.

چه بر سر گورستان ها آمده؟ همه به گل روئیده اند.

Organization II: Mental organization

1. My gmail. I have it open all the time so that I’m always on top of updates etc, but I DON’T use my phone or any other means of communication. This keeps it so that I am in control of when I respond because people are not calling or texting and interrupting me. This also ensures I respond thoughtfully and carefully rather than whatever is on my mind at the moment. I move all my messages to a storage for folder after I have dealt with them so that my inbox serves as a reminder list of what I need to do or what I am waiting on.

2. Screenshot of an excel spreadsheet detailing current plans for the rest of undergrad. These change all the time depending on whether I really want two majors and what I read about MCAT prep, etc.

3. The inner jacket of my planner, with the calender and lists I will mention next.

4. The lists I keep on my white board. One is a reminder of the order of things I do when I come home or when I am about to leave. The other is a list of things I need to bring for each day of the week because I am forgetful as all Hell about this.

5. A typical page of my planner. I’m actually naturally good at just remembering the due date of things, so sometimes I don’t bother. What I really need a reminder is for non-homework things I tend to forget, like “Take worms out of incubator” or whatever. Besides that, I use it to structure what I do which day so that I have a plan of attack. I also devote a section to “future to-do lists” structured by season. For example, my winter to-do list for this past winter break had me doing several scholarship applications.

6: The simple version of my google calender containing only obligatory meetings, etc.

7: The complicated version of my google calender containing what I aspire to do each day.

8: The background on my computer. I keep files that I need to be reminded of all the time, and I switch my clock to analog rather than digital. If I don’t, I keep looking at the time and getting distracted.


Organization I: Keeping my shit in place.

1: Main drawer

2: Pencil holder that I customized with more pockets Holds bus money, school ID, highlighters, two pencils, pen-like eraser and pen.

3. The table next to my bedroom door. Jewelery holder, and a box that contains all the things I always seem to be looking for to make sure that I don’t spend to long looking for them.

4. Backpack with the small pocket cleared out. Phone, keys, hair tie, sheets I have for weekly quizzes, pepper spray, small box with tea bags, USB that looks like a surgeon, energy shots (Coffee makes me sick and I’m always sleep deprived).

5. Top shelf of bookshelf containing all my school supplies, textbooks, and books that are too big to fit on lower shelves. …and peanut the stuffed animal and framed Wittgenstein.

6. Jar of sharpies. I tend to use these only to make notes that are like “stepping out” of the regular flow of notes, like telling myself to “Stop forgetting to count carbons, MOFO!” or when it is useful to have multiple colors.
