Pointless Notes to Self

Something many people don’t know about me is that I’m constantly writing things down that I want to remember.  In fact, I am obsessed with the “Notes” app on my iPhone.  Every time I see something interesting in a magazine or hear about a great product from a friend or have a random idea for a blog post, I save it on my phone for later use.  The problem, however, is that I hardly ever go back and actually do anything with all that stored information.  And half the time, I don’t have a freaking clue what I was even talking about when I try to read through all my “precious” notes. So for your entertaining pleasure, here is a list of just some of the shit that I’ll probably never ever do:

1.  Buy those New Mountain mosquito sticks (whatever the hell those are).

2.  Download that one song by Cam somebody or other (of which I forgot to write down the title).

3.  Look up that gossip website that Jane was talking about.

4.  Order that red dress on page 67 of “In Style” magazine.

5.  Start taking energy strips (even though I could use some right about now).

6.  Get my eyebrows to look like Jessica Alba’s (or any other part of me for that matter).

7.  Purchase a crate that’s 42x28x30 in size.

8.  Use “profanity generator” since, clearly, I generate enough shit bombs all on my own.

9.  Understand why it was so important to write down the word “Mmmmmmmmmmmm“.

10.  Write a blog post about balls.  (Although, you never know….)

    LOLLLLLLL!!! I’m laughing so hard my daughter came upstairs to see what was going on. I have the same app….and you post reminded me that I need to check those notes just to see what’s in there! Awesome!

    Ha ha….my notes to self are really hard to do like ‘start novel about guinea pigs taking over the world’ huh? (note to self don’t write notes to self while drinking Pinot Noir) or ‘spend two hours at the gym on thursday.’ I hardly ever do any of the stuff but I feel better having written it down!!

    I do the same thing in my phone and they rarely make sense after. It has been of no help to me, but I feel like I am accomplishing something at the time.

    Bwahahaha! I can so relate. I was in the apple store today to get help and he opened my notes and I read one real quick that said don’t forget the word {{va-genius}}!
    Don’t ask 😉

    The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas. Even if you never do anything with 99.9% of your Notes, that other 0.01% might be The Big Idea!

  7. Robbie says:

    I can’t even get my shit together enough to write notes to myself…I jot em down on the post-it in my head and never think of them again!

  8. Yes, once the moment and context are gone, I’m also left wondering what I meant by my cryptic message that I left on my phone.
