    I like taking notes. I even like post its, they're so convenient for short notes.

    Either on purpose (listing things I need to remember) or absentmindedly, like when I have a pen and paper handy while I'm talking to someone, I tend to scribble stuff or key words of the conversation.

    Sometimes I'd jot down things (could be numbers, phrases or ideas) that I want to come back on later. The problem is when I look at the words later, I sometimes forget why I wrote them in the first place. :lol: It comes back later though. There's also a problem with not understanding my own handwriting. I use my cellphone's notepad sometimes but if my phone isn't next to me, then I note on paper.

    the only time i ever took notes was when i was in school and the teachers would say "you might see this on your final exam!" because i sucked so hard at school... but.. no, i dont take notes ever! i try and remember what i have to! sometimes i'll email myself notes i guess. i dont know! im going to say no, i should probably take notes, but i dont.

    Not really, but I guess I would forget my own head if it wasn't screwed on my shoulders.

    I was the kid that tried to take notes, but 5 minutes into class I'd start drawing and completely block out the teacher.

    If it's a class I don't take notes the way they want us to (like copy what's on the board). I make notes depending on how I process the information given to me - how it makes more sense to me. It's easier that way.

    When I'm on the computer, I have notepad open and write stuff on it too while I surf.

    Yeah, I would say i was a note taking person. im always writing myself little reminders on pieces of paper about things i want to come back to later or just any random things that are in my head. i also leave myself notes on my moblie.
    i have to take a lot of notes for college aswell lol

    I have this 4 x 6 memo pad at work and that's where all my phone calls, things I need to do, etc go and they get crossed off as they get done. I have no such system at home because its just me and there needs to be none.

    I once pinned a to-do list to my refrigerator that said:

    to do:
    1. make to-do list


    So... for the most part I don't take notes. Every once in awhile, I suppose. What I do do, is retarded things that make me giggle at my own imagined cleverness. It's like a disease or something.
