Multitasking
« on: July 11, 2011, 07:28:14 PM »
I've learned in other forums that a lot of the time, people are coming back again and again. So if you do that here, what you post is what else you're doing at that moment. It pinned (new Firefox feature) this tab in my browser so I can have it here always to check unread threads. But I also am doing other things. But currently, I reply to a few things and check again. It's stealing my attention rather well. :)

  • But I have my control panel open and I don't remember why.
  • mIRC is open. Though not really "in" there. Just like it there in case I wanna pop in. :)
  • I have OneNote open where I record the time I'm working on a project. (Which I should get back to... >_>     <_< )
  • And of course Photoshop which I am using for the project. Keeping them open in hopes it'll draw me back in.
  • Now, for Firefox. This pinned tab of course. Hulu because I'm watching Community. And a tab I keep around to use define: word on. Simplynoise for when I need to have white noise and then my email site. Best not to say which one.

Now. What are YOU doing?

1. 3 browser windows open---all E
2. Email open so I can get my notifications from E
3. YIM on, but I'm invisible there, so don't tell anyone. This too, so I can visit with my friends from E.
4. Multiple word docs open on my task bar. Mostly E related.
5. Google talk on, so I can reach my SO at work.


Now what are you doing?

  • On E refreshing the forum every once in a while
  • Listening to Pandora, because I need some music or comedians and it's way to quiet
  • My Aim's open but really it has no reason to be open...

1. Sitting in a warm bubblebath with my laptop sitting nicely on the floor (Yes, I do this often)
2. Listening to my exclusive "Relax playlist" on my itunes.
3. Dreaming up a strawberry cheesecake. I will not stop until I find it on my kitchen table.
Ok, so my multitasking isn't exactly "work".  ;)

Finally, someone who understands the importance of bubble baths and E.  :D
Oh, and as for the cheesecake, I was leaning more towards store bought than homemade. Me+Baking= Disaster!

1) Sipping at water in hopes it'll help with the gag reflex from brushing my teeth. (It was a nice surprise to know that the gag reflex is mostly when brushing teeth. ;)
2) Looking at my notifications that've built up since Friday. Doing the socializing things and bookmarking where I need to post for when my mind is functioning. Which will be after I have coffee.
3) Trying to wake up so I can do what I need to do and then what I want to do. Should be in that order, but we'll see.
4) And of course there's an ever present monkey on my back about a certain decision. -sigh-
5) Realizing I may have taken the lightheartness away. Sorry.
