21st Century attention span

Since I’ve starting actually working with social media (for reals, not just my CIA-like facebook stalking that’s all me) I’ve realized how short my attention span is, which I blame all the neat things on the internet. The fact that I always have like 4 windows open with 10 tabs on each, am usually chatting, have 5 different applications open….it’s really madness. Being ADD on the computer just comes naturally to me. One thing will remind me of another, and another, and another, and then I’ll just want to buy something…

But anyway: focus. My Friday Five is going to be five things I’m thinking about right now:




01 | “Hello Little Girl” by The Beatles. I have their anthology so I have all there really old stuff and this was playing on my drive in to work today and I really like it. At first I was like, are they making cat noises? But, I don’t think so. The little noise just says it all, doesn’t it?

02 | I got a MacBook Pro for work and I already feel like we’re best buds. Like, i don’t feel like there was that initial awkwardness as you get used to a new machine. Probably because we already shared a traumatic experience together. We were meant to be together.

03 | I want to learn how to quilt. And knit mittens with the little patterns on them. Pam can do it, why can’t I!?!

04 | I’m worried about my posture. I have always had excellent posture, but I feel like I’m on the computer too much now.

05 | I’m going to start running (it goes without saying that  I mean “jogging”) and yoga. It’s going to happen. For seriously.

  1. What happened to you and your Macbook?!

    Do you think you can get one of those giant balls for work or use the one from downstairs? Michelle R. used/has used(?) one for a long time and her posture is the most exquisite I have ever seen on someone who isn’t a dancer.

    Take advantage of those freeyoga classes! If you have a good teacher I guarantee you won’t regret it. They are also really relaxing even though you’re working hard and I bet that that would be good for you.

  2. P.S. If you are truly my friend you will eat/have already eaten those Bueno I left in the kitchen. (The big black basket.)

  3. 1) I’m not sure that a ball will fit in my closet-office if I’m also planning on having a desk in there. It’s funny that you should say that because my boss immediately said I should get a ball for my office on my first day? Do I have terrible posture and don’t know it?

    2) Well, free yoga is at 9:30a on Tuesdays, when I’d have to work. But I think I’ll shuck out the $10 and go twice a week after work.

    3) I wouldn’t dream of eating something that would give you so much pleasure. Maybe we’ll mail it to you.

  4. You really don’t have bad posture. Balls are just super fun to sit on and they’re supposed to be good for you too. I think that they make smaller versions of them for predicaments similar to yours

    Not a bad price at all. Are you getting a discount?/What things are you given a discount on as a LoDo employee now? Cause if Tattered Cover is included then you should definitely start hanging out there. You know what. Hang out there anyway.

    Jackie… If they never arrive on Chinese shores then I will have no doubt that they have gone to a good and holy place.
