I hate cleaning. Actually, it’s not cleaning I hate, but organizing and picking up clutter. My ADHD brain gets too distracted. It’s a fact that ADHD people are either compulsive about organizing (which I am not), or they are like me.
So, today was one of those days to get my studio organized. I have to do this about once a quarter. It’s not my favorite thing to do. Although I’ve never had a root canal, I think it is right up there with a root canal. In fact, I could honestly say, if I root canal took all day, I’d rather be doing that than trying to figure out how to organize my work…. Oh, look! There’s a squirrel outside!
A Clean Desk
Years ago I read a book that said that people with ADHD have messy desks because they are very good at memorizing. I can vouch for that.
Did you know I once memorized Alma chapter 36 in its entirety?
My wife can vouch for that…. Oh, that I memorized Alma Chapter 36, I mean that I memorize my desk. She once said she moved something on my desk and I spotted it immediately upon returning home from work.
A clean desk is a sign of a sick mind, or so the poster says. A messy desk is a sign of someone who knows where everything is, and it better be there when he goes to get it.
I’m working on eliminating wire hazards. In many studios this is a problem. Now I have these cool retractable wire spools I got at Lowe’s. A slight tug, and the wire retracts. Love them.
Look, a squirrel !
Okay, it’s time to go to the temple. I hope this mess is still here tomorrow because if someone cleans my desk tonight, I won’t know where a single thing is.
And, I hope you appreciate my sense of humor. (I really am good at memorizing… that’ part isn’t a joke.)
