Table of contents
Since I was a child, I have always liked two things: lists and numbers. My mother used to take me to the supermarket, and I would sit in the shopping cart and read out the items on the list, then check them off after writing down the price. I think those trips may have been a big influence on my fascination with lists and numbers. What I really liked, actually, was crossing things she would put in the cart off the list. That feeling, so satisfying, of being able to eliminate something accomplished with a thick line was the reason why I am a big fan of endless lists today.
I began by making school homework lists, like any normal kid who wanted to get good grades, I suppose, but those lists were too short, and so I began to add more things: regular daily activities, such as eating, going to sleep or just washing my face. It was then that I calculated precisely how long it took me to do everything and decided, therefore, to add a certain amount of time for each activity in order to fill all the gaps on my list.
My passion for numbers and control led me to study accounting and finance. Although this may seem like a lack of modesty on my part, I have to say that I am competent, very competent: that’s why I work in Madrid in one of the largest national financial companies listed on the stock exchange. As someone who was passionate about numbers, I couldn't waste even a minute. Now I have every second of my day under control, from when I get up until I go to sleep, to leave no room for unexpected events or accidents.
"Maria, do you know where my red shoes are?" my best friend and roommate, Nerea, asked me.
"Did you look under the bed?" I asked, as I finished brushing my hair in the mirror in my room. I had discovered that the more things I did locked inside my room, the less time was lost, especially because of the constant interruptions by Nerea who would even walk into the bathroom to ask me about her usual platitudes.
"Yup!" she shouted. "You're the best!"
I don't know why she did not look there in the first place, since the free space under Nerea's bed was like Doraemon's bag, where you could find a bicycle or a pair of red shoes, like in this case. After all it was obvious since Nerea cleaned her room by putting everything that lay on the floor under the bed and pushed everything that was lying around into the wardrobe.
For her that is "cleaning"... better not to say what it is or I risk losing my best friend.
I don't even know how it is possible to be still such good friends, considering that she is my complete opposite. At first I was afraid that she could suddenly
