About an hour ago, I was on my bed thinking of this really fun letter I’d read the day before (http://www.dearcustomerrelations.com/best-ever-complaint-letters/always-have-a-happy-period/) and thought wow she is really funny! Then, I thought, “Am I that funny?”. Then, I discarded that thought and resumed my other train of thought of finding Physics Research I could be a part of. I went to switch my tab, but just then my cursor glanced over my youtube tab and thought why not put on some background music first. But as navigating Youtube usually goes, I started watching Harvard Commencement speeches instead. My computer screen is a pretty good analogy to my mind. It’s multi-tabbed. I open a link in another tab to learn more of the first tab, but then get so absorbed in that second tab and open a third tab to learn more of the second tab and the cycle repeats until I remember about that original tab. But even then, as I’m crawling against the wind to get to that original tab, I am prone to get side-tracked by all the lesser ones. And you’re thinking, “Well here’s an easy fix, delete those tabs without actually opening them”. And you know what, that’s a good idea. I should do that. Even then, those other tabs will still be in the back of my mind so here’s my solution.
Release my thoughts. Think digital Penseive, but I will need to finish my train of thought or just let it wander some more till I’m content before laying them down.
I took some time thinking of my site title. I was initially going to just write splurge as in thought splurge. Then, I thought jotandescape as in jot and escape. I didn’t like how it looked. I decided on clack of keys. Clack, unlike splurge, is a pretty ugly sounding word. clack. clack. clack. and for that reason, its a pretty accurate onomatopoeia for what I’m going to do. I want to just write furiously and unapologetically – typos and all.
So here’s to doing something that’ll make me feel lighter, happier, and productive. Here’s to more cozy nights falling in love with the comforting clack of keys.
