my 'do you have everything list'..

aside from being a procrastinator, i can also be a forgetful person.
that's why i've bought myself two planners and i'm sticking to them. i'll talk more about that in another post.

for now..let's discuss my traveling list.
last year i thought i was set. didn't think i'd forgotten anything.
come to find out, i'd forgotten a very important part of one of my gadgets & didn't realize it until i landed at LAX :x
i had forgotten negrita's charger. negrita is my dell laptop who is black heh ;]
how could i possibly forget my laptops charger. it's one of the important things, if not THE most important thing for me to have. how else will i upload fotos from D?! i tried radioshack, but those thieves wanted close to $85 for a charger. ended up at bestbuy and got one for under $40. planned on returning it once my trip was over, never got around to it. plus its convenient. i've got the dell charger in the office since negrita is connected to a big monitor and keyboard. and the replacement is in the living room for when negrita migrates over there.

this is the exact reason why lists are good. i've learned that i work better with lists. from groceries to what movies i want and even books i love. it's also very comforting when i get to check something off. there's a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction that i get from it.

since i leave to la in less than a week, i figured now would be a good time to set this list up. this way i can print it out and put it in my planner as well. annnnd i'll have a list set up for future vacations.

i'm not big on doing my hair nowadays. speaking of, i need a trim before leaving. i use to blow-dry my hair and occasionally flat iron it. yeah too lazy for that. plus my hair doesn't dry out funky, just a bit wavy. i'm also not big on make-up. special occasions only or those rare moments that i feel like i wanna glam myself up. doubt i'll use any, but i'll take some i guess. i didn't add my sunglasses because they broke a week ago. it was a devastating event but i had to move on. maybe i'll find some on my trip, who knows.

now that i have my list, i'm going to print it out and get to work. packing never takes me long cause i'm not to picky with what i wear. i'll probably start manana.

do you have a list?! is it similar to mine?! is there something you recommend i add to my list?!

..till next time ;]

  1. I use the "Pack This" list. I bought the pad before a big trip and there are so many sheets, I'm probably covered for the rest of my life. (Perhaps I should travel more?) I could have probably made one that is more suited to me, but I find that the products from KnockKnock—although silly—are pretty useful.
