Write About It Wednesday: Scatterbrained


I have the attention span of a 5 year old, with the worldly wonder of a newborn, and the responsibilities of a college student. My mind (and my life for that matter) is all over the place. There are so many different thoughts going on up there that I don’t even know what to do with them anymore. My head is starting to directly resemble my creatively cluttered desk.

I am the kind of person who has two settings when it comes to my ability to focus, and I have not quite figured out how to control the settings. I am either hyper focused on a single task at hand, or focused on everything, everywhere, at all times. And most of the time, it is the latter. It is during these moments of lost focus that my to-do lists get made, but nothing gets crossed off. Its when my brain starts opening a million tabs ranging from Etsy, to cars, to homework, to travel plans, to questioning the meaning of life. There are so many things going on up there, but I cant zero in on a single thought.

Does anyone else have this problem? Feeling like the whole world comes at you all at once and you are able to only halfway pay attention to anything because everything is so interesting? I guess I should try to focus and close out some of those tabs. Making a list always helps me (even though I sometimes lose the list).

Alright. I don’t know if I can focus much longer to write any more. This was a pretty lame blog post, but I hope some of you can relate.

Peace out, enjoy life, and live the adventure.
