“Taking Note”

I’ve always been one of those people who thinks they’re going to remember the thing that just came to mind and so I never write it down and always forget.

Lately I’ve been writing more things down, except my organizational methods are still, well, I don’t have any, and so I come across all these random notes that I vaguely remember the purpose of (just, writing down to remember something), but the entire context is gone and the note is usually insane and I seriously wonder if I just randomly died what someone would make of finding half this shit lying about.
