Post it Treasure Chest: My God isn’t it Beautiful?

I was surprised on Wednesday by a package at my door. My wonderful Mother bought me a post it treasure chest because I’ve had a rough few weeks. I never even mentioned it to her, yet she somehow knew I have swooned over these for a while. I freaked out with happiness, and I am not ashamed.

The chest has everything! Many are lined 3x5 notes, there are dozens of regular squares, shaped designed ones (the apples are my favorite!), and a few full adhesive ones.

To my understanding, these boxes are like grab bags. You never what you are going to get. I love mine! It is a 10 pound box for $50.00. That’s a deal if I’ve ever seen one. Will buy more boxes in the future! Being a student and a future teacher (only 1 1/2 years left!), I KNOWI will have great use for them!

When I first moved into my current house, I put a large cork board up on my office wall, only to discover that I couldn’t actually use it because I didn’t have any thumbtacks. Rather than making a special trip, I told myself I’d just pick some up the next time I was near an office supply store.

It’s been four years, ten months, and thirteen days. That cork board is still empty. I have never owned a single thumbtack.

And you think you have a procrastination problem?

Disney princesses make great office supplies 

buzzfeed has shared a reimagining of various Disney princesses as office supplies. Characters long-criticized as the passive constructs of our misogynistic culture, this artful scrutiny takes the idea to the extreme. We are forced us to question who these young women represent, if not the marginalized possessions of a patriarchal system that values women only so far as they are able to meet the demands of their male oppressors. In this sad collection, we recognize these characters as property, accessorized and briefly valued, before being regarded as mundane and ultimately discarded to a lonely corner. This pastiche confronts us with stereotypes that were first challenged with the dawn of second wave feminism.

Either that, or somebody thought that Jasmine would look funny as a pair of scissors.
