I don't know what it says about me, but my desk (and most of the rest of my life) is sort of a sine wave for organized vs a mess. If i'm not cleaning, i'm accumulating. Sometimes I hit a singularity and sweep everything on my desk into a tote, and reintroducing items only as needed. I'd categorize my desk as "wabi sabi" (Japanese, meaning "perfect imperfection"). I am, in general, the creative in a non-creative world.
