Being Creative One Day at a Time

Sweeping Motions

“What’s messier right now — your bedroom or you computer’s desktop (or your favorite device’s home screen)? Tell us how and why it got to that state.”

My computer’s desktop is by far the messier of the two.

My husband is a neat and organized individual and he expects – and enforces – these traits when it comes to the house. He makes the bed every morning first thing, and we wash, dry and put away all dishes after every meal or meal preparation. The place is spotless, almost to the point of sterility.

And then there’s my computer’s desktop. It’s a jumble of confusion and chaos. Icons litter the screen, many that I haven’t used in YEARS. Shortcuts to folders multiply like rabbits… or dust bunnies. I create elaborate folder systems to improve organization. Then I get lost and frustrated when it comes time to FIND anything.

How did this happen? Simple: I’m a procrastinator. And I have hoarder tendencies, I’m afraid. I collect things because I MAY need them someday.

The house is a reflection of my husband’s neat and organized mind.

My computer desktop reflects the utter confusion and chaos of the absentminded me.
