I don’t often take notes because I have terrible ADD. (or ADHD or lazy brain or whatever the hell you want to call it) I’ll get excited about a concept and write it down so I don’t forget it, but then I’ll almost never go back and look at notes. It just never seems so important to me to go back and look at what I wrote in the past. Maybe they should call it CID? (concept importance defecit)
Sometimes I do go back and look. Tonight, when feeling adventurous, I delved into the jungle of nonsense in my iphone notes app, I ran across a note containing only this line:
“houses full of peanut butter”
I have no idea what this means or what I was thinking. (Admittedly, it is an appealing visual.) This is the sort of thing I would expect if I were say, smoking pot on a regular basis, like I did when I was a teenager.
Maybe it’ll make sense to me tomorrow.
