Does /qa/ keep records in any form?3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.
I have a little notebook I use everyday to remember and keep track of what I want to get done that day, which has the upside of being able to look back in time to see what it was that I did. For example, in the 25/07/22 section I have things like "Laundromat ✓, Sweeping Ｘ".
I also have a calendar where I mark daily constant things, for example □ is the symbol I use to track that I've taken my morning pill. Before that, I'd forget, and it was messy. This way, I can look back in time and say "ah, that's when I switched to a different dose". I also write down dates for appointments or other important tasks.
A minor extra thing is writing down individual noteworthy milestones, such as "on the 23th of September of 2022 I bought a new laptop".
Lastly, I have the weekly notes I using to bring to my psychologists, with which I can see what I was dealing with at the time. They didn't have dates though, so it took me a while to nail when exactly each session took place.
Putting all of this together, cross referencing it with logs and stuff, it lets me get a pretty clear picture of how things have gone these last three years. This isn't something I implemented all at once, but a bunch of different helpful things that at one point realized I could use to form a chronology of events, which turned out to be very useful. It gives you some great perspective on your life, I seriously recommend it.
I've been thinking of just dumping all the books I would like to read in a list so I can keep track of them. The list would optionally include a bookmark a date in which I would like to finish it (if any) as well as priority order and finished books with rating.>>99842
Personally I hate scheduling because I never really liked the idea of trapping myself into a routine from which I am preventing myself to be "free". As time went on this perception fell apart and I discovered that it's actually a good thing but by that time I was already an adult and incapable of sticking into "schedules" that I impose by myself. I wish I could improve this honestly.
Venting is nice, writing stuff by myself really helps me overcome any emotional issues I run into. Good for the timeline, too.>>99847
I... actually did not have a backup for some files, and they got wiped somehow. I think I placed them in a wrong folder and an update overwrote them. Can't recover them, gonna have to look up a bunch of stuff once again. Will make multiple backups from now on...>>99849>Personally I hate scheduling
Same, the reason why I use the notebook rather than a schedule is because missing the timing ended up being very frustrating and I just couldn't deal with that. Writing down activities to do at any point of the day leaves you with a lot more wiggle room.
I use excel documents and text files on my computer.
I have a notebook that I write things that I should remember down in and then I rip out the page and leave it lying around my computer, so my computer is surrounded with passwords, my weight, what appointments I have etc.
