Nothing had ever obliged him to do anything. He had spent his childhood alone. He never joined any group. He never pursued a course of study. He never belonged to a crowd. The circumstances of his life were marked by that strange but rather common phenomenon – perhaps, in fact, it’s true for all lives – of being tailored to the image and likeness of his instincts, which tended towards inertia and withdrawal.
— Fernando Pessoa, from the Preface ofThe Book of Disquiet. (via lajouissance

A pie chart of Voldemort’s soul, assuming that every time he made a horcrux his sould was split precisely in half.
Numbers are rounded down.
The diadem was stolen when Tom was still a student, and then hid when he returned Hogwarts to ask for a job. The cup was stolen when he was working at Borgin and Burke’s. So there’s a possibility that the diadem and the cup were not made in this order.
The locket, the ring and the diary are in the right order if we assume the “strenghts scale” of the horcrux.
Again, it’s impossible to learn while he made Harry or Nagini first.
