Everyone keeps a notes app! It's the app on your phone where you jot down notes or quotes, things to remember, times and other moments when you find them! Notes apps are highly personal, but sometimes it can be intresting to express something that's normally out of sight.

What's in your notes app? (Feel free to edit out things you don't wanna include - also you can include old notes or things you wrote and forgot about, sometimes those are the best  :grin: )



I will add some notes shortly.

The native notes app of the iPhone. I also have a Notion, but it's more for things I don't need often that I update or look at every few weeks or months. The notes app is for more immediate, daily stuff or holds things I wanted to transfer to Notion but haven't yet...

Holds
  • my shopping list
  • meal ideas because I suck at deciding what I wanna eat, which is a copy of something i have in my Notion
  • plans for my Neocities sites
  • a text I wrote on the train that I plan to publish on my smolpub
  • a list with career ideas and plans (I should transfer that to Notion)
  • a list of song and album name ideas
  • a list of stuff I wanna buy
  • a document with unfinished poetry bits and pieces so I can write and combine on the go
  • a poem my girlfriend wrote on my phone about farts
  • ACNH villagers list
  • My ring sizes for all fingers
  • List of piracy sites
  • A list of funny and a little cringe pickup lines


Thank you for bringing it up, I was able to delete a lot of unneccessary and old notes. :smile:

Tips should be solutions - e.g. things you can do with your website

"Most obviously, they help us understand what it is to be a 'fan' (or a
'punk' or a 'skinhead" or a 'riot grril). Yet they further allow insight into cultural preoccupations and socio-political understandings. Flick through their yellowing, stapled pages and alternative cultural narratives are recovered, hidden voices are heard, cultural networks are pieced together and formative political awakenings discovered.? For all their immediacy, fanzines serve as residues of youthful agency; 'visual and verbal rants' freed from the pressures of censorship, editorial dictates, subbing and deadlines."

Come, come, no more delay, no more excuses,
The stuff we ask you for, at once produce us.
Lose this day loitering—’twill be the same story
To-morrow–and the next more dilatory;
Then indecision brings its own delays,
And days are lost lamenting o’er lost days.
Are you in earnest? seize this very minute–
What you can do, or dream you can, begin it,
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it,
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated—
Begin it, and the work will be completed!”

My art notes are buried in a poorly organized Zim notebook, and are generally incomprehensible:

Light Notes
- set overlay over flats, as ambient light? light falloff appears to hue shift
- falloff shows the light's colour?
- the bulk of the light is white?
- the more light travels, the more it blends with ambient light?
- the hue shift in falloff may be the light's own colour scattering, not ambient light
- speculars are the mid point between the light source, and the camera
- would a mirror at the right angle give another specular? it does, but how does it work?
- sunlight barely has falloff on earth because of the size

- hue shifts by roughly 15~20 or 30~45 degrees (15~20 30~45 hue) with direct light
- direct light can be divided into three parts, the strongest point being white, the main colour, then the faded colour (e.g. white, yellow, orange)
   - alternatively, could be divided into two
   - colour 0 and 1 are low saturation, colour 2 is higher in saturation, colour 2 has the fadeoff point, which makes it run out of saturation
   - +27~29 sat for colour 2, 30+ from 1 to 2 sounds fine
   - levels appear to jump more, depending on color/gamma
   - HOWEVER csp treats saturation differently. according to it, the saturation for 1 it at its peak, then 2 gradually gets weaker

sphere wall light + ambo chair light hue levels:
40 - 340

312

240

amb:

210
215

224

228

sat is strongest at centre of direct light, desats as it fades?

- Keep fallout law in mind when making gradients?

[close]

Gradient Map
1. highlight
2. light
3. base light
4. unused
5. shade
6. ambient light

1. 0      100
2. 20   80
3. 40   60
4. 60   40
5. 80   20
6. 100   0

gradient steps:

ambient first:
* 0: ambient
* 20: shade
* 40: unused, used simply to hold place
* 60: base light
* 80: light
* 100: highlight

occlusion first:

occlusion shadows are added manually with this method

saturation
since you are applying the saturation to the gradient map itself, you need to keep the values of the gradient map's colours into account. the patterns under saturation should work fine.

you may want to flatten the base shading, then apply the saturation gradient, to keep the ambient pattern, made a duplication of it, and then copy and paste that to the top set to saturation above the gradient
[close]

Then there's my temporary notes that don't get saved to a file. I often lose these notes when my laptop runs out of power, but they're generally not important.

This is SIGNIFICANTLY more than what I thought I'd find rummaging through my computer's NotePad/WordPad files, but here you go. Enjoy probing my mind.

(I also apologize for some of these being entire recollections of past experiences or dreams. Not very sure if those count as notes, but.. whatever.)

TreeDream
There was a gigantic tree that we could see from our window, it could've been as tall as Mount Fuji
and maybe about half as thick. All of it's insides had rotted out overnight and all that
was left was a surrealistic, black outline of what it used to be.

I went outside and stood next to a vehicle with a bunch of it's blackened limbs and internal rot
in various large, metal bins that was parked in a very slanted manner in the middle of a small lot
of concrete. It looked like it had just pulled in temporarily (backwards for some reason) with only
a few feet or so of room between it and the road. Some lad in a garbage truck came by to say that
there's a 700 dollar fine for parking and leaving waste vehicles is residential areas for too long,
so I told him I wasn't the driver and he left.

I noticed that the tree was twisting in the wind as opposed to swaying, so I went left a bit to clear whatever was blocking some of my sight to the right.

The tree had incredibly thick and rubbery roots at the bottom that were being twisted by the wind
as well... like the roots were the puppet, the rotted outlines of the trunk were the strings,
and the wind was the puppeteer. What the hell...

Mariodrea
I've never actually had a dream within Mario 64, but I've had at least one funky one where I was the Mario you play as.

For some reason it started out as an odd version of Luigi's Mansion... after I solved a puzzle and found a room I had never seen before, the character I was/was playing as switched from Luigi to N64 Mario and I realized that the room was far blander than the rooms in LM typically are. It was dim, small and empty with two half-open windows facing each other on opposite walls. I tried to crawl out the door into another room that happened to be a distorted and dark version of the kitchen/dining room from my childhood home... I didn't get very far traversing through the many large objects that were strewn about since Peach (whom of which I was apparently trying to avoid) caught me and carried me back to the room I was in before.

At some point during the start of my dream, my brain decided that I looked like and indeed WAS Mario to myself, but everyone else just saw a dog.

Instead of trying to go through the door again, I decided to crawl out one of the windows. I found myself in a somewhat quiet but active city... it was around 7-8:00 at night and lightly snowing. The scene was at a fixed angle when I was crawling along the snow-covered sidewalk next to a strip-style building on the left side of a road. It was up high, but It wasn't quite bird's-eye view since it was asymmetrical and you could still see people's bodies and the windows on the buildings relatively well. After a few minutes of going along the sidewalk and occasionally passing people, Mario collapsed and died from hypothermia. I uh.. I think I started laughing the moment I woke up from that one

『イタリア系アメリカ人』 Italian American
【系】けい_lit. System; lineage; group.

  Examples: Windows系OS (Windows OS system)

  彼女はアメリカ系である。
  (She is of American parentage.)

  This still confuses me a little bit..
  Italian of American parentage/group maybe?
   Windows of OS group?



『なのに』 Conjunction- And yet, despite this, "But"

  Not very much to observe here.



『純和風』じゅんわふう_Traditionally/Purely Japanese style
 
【純】ジュン_Genuine, pure

【和】ワ_ Harmony, Japanese style
 There are a lot of readings for this one, but the On reading ”わ”is the one with this meaning.

TheYellowMellowed
I once went to see a movie... I very badly needed to piss, so I ended up having to leave the theatre midway to leak into the public cans. I felt great relief as I had been keeping it contained for a great while.. and to finish off such an uplifting experience-- put the icing on the cake, so to speak-- I reached for the handle...

In that moment, my heart dropped. There was no handle. "No worries!", I told myself. If I just stand up and leave the stall, I thought, the sensor would detect it and finish the job for me! So I stepped out.

There was no flush. No trickle. No sound at all except the pounding of my own heart. I closed the stall door in hopes that such a gesture would communicate to the sensor that my business was done. Nothing. The movie I was watching was still running, and despite it being one of questionable quality.. I had to get back! The only thing this toilet wouldn't be failing to flush would be my money! I decided that I must leave it. The yellow mellowed.

I have Joplin on my computer (and phone, now) for taking Markdown notes, and I quite like it. It's where I put most things I need to think about or remember, including these wildly rambly & pretentious mixed-journal-and-poetry notes I was keeping daily for a while but have fallen off of lately:

Spoiler
Themes
- Queer Time
   - https://time.com/6285046/getting-ahead-ambition-myth-essay/
   - The idea of time as a resource for productivity is protestant, and not innate or natural.
   - Life milestones and timelines are a sort of hegemony. The feeling of "falling behind" is
   - This article, specifically, is talking about "ambition", which is not a word I think about a lot. It's tying the idea that there must be something productive for you to do next, that if one area of your life is behind then you had best compesate for it in others.
   - Aspirational, ambitious norms about timelines and "what success looks like" engender a feeling of constant falling behind that make people feel like they must always be working to justify their existence which falls short of peak productivity.
- Compression of Ideas
   - Choosing a theme, even arbitrarily, is one way of carving off enough stuff to hold it all together and condense it down.
   - "I want to distill myself like poets do" (can I use that as an epigraph?)
 - Relationships, Distance, Platforms
     - Unpoetic Justice's videos on idubbz' apology and the illuminaughti scandal
     - People who aren't in front of you feel less real, less pressing. The bias in who's likely to be around you as an equal or inner circle member is a reinforcing force of inequality.
     - Active vs passive bigotry, the room for close contact without an enforced boundary to change the latter's mind, sometimes, and also the fragility of unexamined positions.
     - The ways that we're often policing very minor ways of being and enforcing ever-deeper levels of performance from our public entertainers in the name of pursuing reality. Turning the personal into professional and even commodity, wanting a totally convincing 24/7 display of real relationships for the cameras with all the emotional and bodily control that entails.
     - To half-assed art?
     - God I'm still mad about the wording of the fucking pay for critique online-only press's diversity statement right alongside several emphases on grammatical correctness as if there's a singular English grammar or rules in poetry.


Poem

I hold these words in my mouth,
Little serifs spilling out
Even as I try to slip in
Just one more preposition.
They dissolve slowly,
Unevenly,

* * *
Last night, a girl said into the mic
That John Green said
*We're here
Because we're here
Because we're here*,
And I know that's only fourthhand.

* * *
There's another you lurking in the door frame,
One that only wants to play jazz.
One that doesn't know this hunger in your belly
Driving you past the threshold
To your own small and musical doom
* * *
I've got out the tools that
Etch, and magnify, and pierce
So the light might pass through
The translated essence of the thing.
This one's full of horses,
Yours,
And they keep jostling my long, slender tongs.
If you stab a horse, even
One this small,
The blood that comes out
Isn't a horse at all.
It doesn't know where it came from,
Even the adrenaline, doesn't know
What it *felt like* to *ride*.
I think you have to feed it,
To grow this uncrystalline moment up,
And even then,
The light only knows a whole horse
At its edges.

SI unit of counting is moles?? Moles is counting! Although we don't normally literally count the number of e.g. molecules--we derive it from mass and knowledge of purity or electrical charge etc. So we do have to somehow categorize the atoms, or calculate the percentage of each type of atom in a mass. This requires measurement of properties, a barrier from the chemistry of the outside world, and pre-existing knowledge of the characteristics of each class of atom or molecule. The classes are very strictly defined.

Elements *are* very homogeneous classes of atoms, and atoms are pretty different from other things that exist at that scale, although we don't necessarily know exactly how many neutrons are in a given mass if it, say, varies from the normal isotopic distribution for some reason.

This is usually totally fine because we're looking at massive scale--we don't need to count or classify individual molecules when we have a solid underlying understanding of the classes and their properties and are estimating at scale.

A deep dive into counting in chemistry.

Subjective as vaguely synonymous with human-scale?

Is there controversy about mole as an SI unit?

Would an agent thinking at a different scale from us invent a different math? would human agents be a more tractable counting problem from the outside or would the conclusions inevitably be useless at human scale? I suppose there are a lot of geological phenomena that are chaotic enough as to be hard to predict or model even if we can mostly understand the processes.

What is the size role that ethics plays in the human scale problem? How much should we be maybe adjusting our scientific ethics elsewhere to be less destructive?

There are also a buuuuunch of poems in both, in various stages of completion. Here's a little something silly on that front.

Because I have a terrible habit of ending first drafts with needlessly definitive or smartass couplets
* * *
Maybe drills don't exist.

Instead,
Time and time again,
Miss Manners tells me--
"Don't talk with your mouth full;
Always start with a thesis statement."

If you cannot make your own,
Phoning it in is fine.

I did not want
To write today
And Yet.
May be good at math,
But I've always been bad
With numbers.

There's an alchemy to wine,
An unpredictable spirit--
Two kinds, actually.
Two streams--

The correct answer
It turns out
Is yes.

Because Daniel was already taken.
Kyle still had a vacancy.
That is to say, the things a body can't absorb
Won't let me rest,
Settle into the crook of my legs,
And pretend
It will be okay.

When it finally punctures my lung
I say things that are true
And mean them kindly.

A cloacal ear canal.
Made of amber memories.
The distance of time has leeched all the color out
I imagine him,
A single raindrop tear
Falling from the headlight,
Driving himself off
Into the sunset
On the beautiful mountain roads
Between here
And Baltimore.

People ask me, sometimes,
Why I left the church.
I'm never sure how to answer.
Because it's not the question, so much--
How long can I live off of that before
I'm an empty shell that's never been touched?
The April showers end
Every year. Will they wash too much of you away
First?
Will you cry out to stop
Your own extinction?

I would like, for just once in my life,
To be merely *whelmed*.

I don't actually use my phone's notes app.

If I'm at home I usually have a laptop handy, so my "notes app" is usually just the *scratch* buffer in GNU Emacs. If I need to keep a note long-term, I'll save it to a file and put it under version control with Git.

If I'm away from home, my wallet is actually a passport-sized Traveller's Notebook with some inserts that make it suitable for carrying money and cards. I also carry a cheap fountain pen with me, so if I need to jot something down I just do it.
