starts reorganizing chrome bookmarks
why am i reorganizing my bookmarks right now?
I should tweet about how I got here
opens notes.app to compose this tweet
hm. too long to tweet, guess I’ll post to tumblr
this is hard to follow and not as funny in reverse order
reverses order of bullet points
I still don’t know how I got to reorganizing chrome bookmarks. I told myself I need to update my bullet journal at noon, it’s now 1:25 PM. whatever… I’ve already committed to writing this post with no foreseeable end or long term value aside from the possibility of others relating to my struggle, might as well keep going
realizes the format looks weird in notes.app
considers opening tumblr to finish this post out on the web app
heart rate momentarily spikes over the idea of tumblr eating this stupid post after I’ve already put time into
continues typing in notes.app
okay. now. why the fuck did I end up reorganizing my goddamn chrome bookmarks?
scans open tabs in the window visible behind notes.app
eyes stop on the shortened tab that reads ‘ADHD and–‘
OH RIGHT. I REMEMBER NOW.
the irony is not lost on me
just making sure I was using the phrase correctly, okay?
returns to notes.app, feeling judged
right. okay. so. why did I wanted to bookmark this article?
opens article tab
sees section called “How to Stop Hyperfocusing on the Wrong Task”
how am i not surprised?
considers posting this drawn out story to r/adhd
jesus, it’s 2:00 PM already? whatever. I might be hyperfocusing on the wrong task, but at this point I gotta see it through.
back to notes.app
bookmarks. get it together, self. oh, oh, okay. I was reorganizing my bookmarks because I wanted to bookmark this article, but it need to be somewhere I would actual reference, instead of getting buried in the depths of chrome. cool. not mad about it… but… how did I get to this article?
opens proceeding tab
right. a different article about ADHD that came from a mailing list, which came from my email. BOOM. GOT IT.
clicks the open email tab
ah. I had started unsubscribing from email lists, and opened this email when I didn’t recognize the author.
why was I in my email in the first place?
clicks back to email inbox
scans recently opened mail
a ha. it’s all coming back to me.
“it’s all coming back, it’s all coming back to me nooooww ♫”
brain, I’d really appreciate if you could save the celine dion sing-a-long for another time. thanks.
eyes narrow on the “Finish creating your account on Medium”
ah yes. I created an account on Medium, because I want to use the platform to post about the case studies I’m going to create for the Daily UI challenge
clock reads 2:23 PM
minimizes chrome window
two more windows with 17 tabs each come into view
open tab is a google doc titled “Daily UI Challenge” with links, notes, and references
i’m too hungry to finish this right now.
that’s not true.
i’m just grumpy for wasting time. but it’s not really wasting… I’m enjoying this…
remembers the title of the article trying to bookmark in the first place
LET’S FINISH IT OUT.
DAILY UI CHALLENGE.
COME ON BRAIN.
scans open tabs
Ohhhhhh. Oh. Oh okay. I had gotten so excited about the Daily UI challenge, I forgot why I was doing it– which was to have process and case study work that could add to my UX portfolio since so much of my current work is under NDA.
that was anti climactic.
