Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
Why is silence so freaking invasive?
For this activity, I have decided to sit in silence for ten minutes, while at work, and jot down everything that comes into my silly brain.
Here are the results:
ten minutes is a long time
am i doing this right?
i hope no one comes over to my desk to bug me
why am i so grouchy at work?
what should i eat?
why is good food so much more expensive, blah, you know why.
o no i have to pee.
it’s only been a minute.
does anyone read this?
i really have to pee.
if i pee does that break the “silence”?
maybe this only works if i sit in silence at home, where there’s no computer typing and no voices and distractions.
seven minutes to go
would i make it through meditations practices?
that’s no nice, janine.
did i spell practices right?
wow, no one has come to interrupt me.
it can’t be good for you to stare at a computer screen everyday for eight hours.
i miss my family.
still have to pee.
i have not had any water this morning.
tootsie roll pops are definitely not natural in flavor. or natural in anything for that matter.
it’s a good thing i don’t smoke.
what if my parents read that?
what am i going to eat for lunch?
results lead to the conclusion that i am boring.
when can i take a weekend vacation to New Orleans again?
i should really buy some new shoes, these are falling apart.
that writing class was a great waste of money.
one more minute.
“these are falling apart” reminds me of Chinawa Achebe. is that how you spell his name? most likely not.
i am definitely going to pee after 11:29
i will never learn to spell definitely without spellchecker.
it’s almost 11:30
almost lunch time
it’s 50 degrees outside in late January
11:30 IT’s OVER
*after my pee break*
it’s now lunch time, and time to get back to NOISE and bustle.
