I am really glad I am reading this question at home and not in my office at work because my desk there looks as though a bomb went off. “What’s messier right now – your bedroom or your computer’s desktop? Tell us how and why it got to that state.”
Hands down, without a doubt it is my computer’s desktop. How did it get that way, well this also has an easy answer, I write! I am always opening a new word document, typing my thoughts and saving it to my desktop. Let’s just say I have way more thoughts tied to more word documents than I have published blog postings. My computer’s desktop also has images that I have gathered for all those thoughts waiting their turn to be blasted through the internet for all to see. Do I ever delete these lovely little icons that adorn my computer’s desktop? No, I usually make a folder on the desktop and highlight all of them every so many weeks and tuck them away for safe keeping so I can redo the process of cluttering up the screen once more.
It really has become a viscous cycle, a habit my computer has realized by now it just has to deal with. And for those files in safe keeping tucked away in a pretty manila colored folder on my desktop… I never open those up; I just start a new word document and save a new picture.
