1. Do you hit the snooze button??
I am slowly sinking back into this bad habit. No. Not slowly. I have sunk back into this bad habit. But, not as bad as before. (Used to literally hit the snooze button for over an hour sometimes, years ago….not proud.) Now, I have been hitting it once and then just laying there, awake (kind of), struggling to want to actually get up.
I do want to get up, but it just feels nice in bed. May be in part due to the cracked open window and birds chirping outside….it’s so relaxing. This isn’t a problem, per se, but I’m trading time in my a.m. routine (that I really, really enjoy!) for time just laying there (also enjoy, but maybe not always worth it?). Today I set my alarm a little earlier and tried to “allow” for that time.
2. Do you clear notifications immediately? Or do the little bubbles not bother you?
(Referring to these):
As you can see, I guess I’m in Camp B. This is a great example of how I feel like I’m a DISORGANIZED, organized person. 😀 (Organized in some ways, very NOT organized in other ways…).
My phone display screens are pretty all over the place. I have zero organization of my apps. I also can look right through those little red notification bubbles. Seriously, it’s like I don’t even see them. That message bubble has apparently been there since 3/17/21 (I just looked). It was some spam type message so I never opened it. Or deleted it.
But it’s like my brain adapts, and then I know I have this one baseline message…so anything over that is an actual NEW message! Hahaha. That sounds crazy though, doesn’t it. Maybe today I will go through and deal with all of the red bubbles.
I once had a friend look at my phone and see all the bubbles, and her eyes almost bugged out of her head. I think she was a Camp A-er. Hehehe.
3. Do you change your passwords immediately, when notified? Or wait until the last day?
Talking about like for a work program, where you log in all the time… Eventually you get those pop up messages that say, “Your password will expire in 12 days!” And then you can either click to “Change Now” or click it away to “Change Later”.
I pretty much always click “change later”, for at least like 5+ days. It’s like those 30 seconds to click, go in, change the password….UGH. So much effort!!! LOL!!! (I think this is what Cal Newport refers to as “friction”. That extra step to the other password webpage is just too much of a barrier for me. 🙂 ) Eventually when it gets down to maybe 3-4 days left, I’ll finally bite the bullet and change the password. (Currently dealing with this on a work site I use daily).
4. (From Ethan, last night): If you could only eat ONE kind of ice cream ever again, what would it be?
That’s a tough one. I think though, for me, if I could really only choose one….. it would be vanilla with chocolate syrup. Classic, good old fashioned style, like what I always ate as a kid. He chose mint chocolate chip. You?
Picture of the Day!
Asher achieved a milestone in February of swimming the 50 yard freestyle in <30 seconds. His swim coach has a tradition where he makes “under 30 brownies” for the kids whenever they meet this goal! It’s a big deal for the kids. Last night, his coach rang our doorbell and had his brownies in hand to drop off! So exciting- and so fun to have his coach personally deliver them. 🙂
I am grateful for chicken. Sorry, I think there might be some vegans who read this blog, so no offense….but I really like chicken! 🙂 I made some last night and it was so good.
