Notes I Leave for Myself

I write things down quite frequently. It doesn’t guarantee I’ll remember why I wrote it down or that it’s actually important information, because often I write things down when I’m half asleep, drunk, panicked, or some unholy combination.

Here are some notes on my phone that require a lot of problem solving:

  • Assorted drafts of Persephone posts (edited 9:10 am today)
  • This grocery list that dissolved into a list of best drugstore beauty products culled from Allure and Good Housekeeping: (edited 6/14/15)
