What My Writing Environment Has Become.
At first i just turned down the volume on my phone, but it was still distracting.
Then i put it on silent, but the vibrate alert became annoying.
So i started putting the phone on my bed, hoping that the pillows or the duvet would dampen the noise the vibrate gives off, but i could still hear it.
I played my (writing) music a little louder, but could still hear the phone vibrate on my bed.
I turned off the vibrate alert and put the phone on silent, but the screen lights up every time i get a notification, which i also found distracting.
The thing is, every time my phone cries out i have to give it some attention, i can’t help it, i just automatically reach out for it, even if it’s just the screen flashing on with an eMail alert.
So now i have the phone on silent the vibrate alert is turned off and i flip the phone over so i can’t see the screen. And i wear headphones.
My phone is now silent and un-intrusive. But sometimes i forget what i did to it and wonder why my phone isn’t giving me alerts anymore. First i blame apple, then i blame the phone, then i blame my network provider, then i blame the phone again, then i shout expletives to my phone, like;
_WHY WON’T YOU FUCKING WORK YOU POINTLESS PIECE OF SHIT!_
Then i remember what i did;
I reset everything back to _”normal’_ and pretend that i didn’t just lose my temper with my phone because i’m an idiot.
