Tools of the Trade

I'm currently living in my childhood home, in my childhood bedroom. To give you all an idea of what a slob I am, let's just say I did a little Fall cleaning the other day and came across a pocket of nostalgia that had not been disturbed since the late nineties (mainly notes written to Jr. High classmates that mainly consisted of band logos and anarchy signs). This disorganization typically only applies to the physical space around me, I try to be immaculate where cyberspace is concerned. Because of these problems I have with flinging important papers away to dark corners of the room I've attempted to keep my M.F.A. application process as paper free as possible, and this little gem helped out a great deal:

www.luminotes.com

This is a free service that works like a do-it-yourself wiki where you can copy/paste text, arrange it with links and add images. It has been my own personal savior where organizing application requirements and the like are concerned. Hope this helps some of you out!

Less than a week after you posted luminotes, I have begun using it to organize my entire life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
