She Was So Young!

I think I’ve always been a 40-year-old housewife that worries about spots on dishes and the state of the laundry.
Seriously, I distinctly remember one of my brothers telling his then girlfriend that I was 10 going on 38.
Well, time runs different in my world, so there we have it.
The more I program for pleasure of honing my craft, the more this point is brought home to me: I’m an old fart in a non-wrinkled package.
The latest example of this came to my attention at random while I was figuring out a menu issue with my latest side project. Not only do I have a pad of physical paper by my desk and an omnipresent mechanical pencil, but I may or may not put all my scribbled ideas in a good old, dependable TextEdit file.
I seeeriously have a TextEdit file for each side project I work on. It’s where all my ideas go, and a lot of sweat as well. Because while I wire frame things out in Balsalmiq as I already alluded to in past posts, all of my tweaking goes into this file. And then it becomes my to-do list!
Because I thrive on easy to follow to-do lists.
Not that I ever follow the directions on my boxes of macaroni, but dang it, someone has to be the rebel around here!
And yes, I really did take a screenshot of a document. I’m too lazy to upload the thing to wordpress, haha.
