This post describes precisely something about my brain that I've tried putting into words for a long time.
15. go to get coffee mug
16. smack head on open cupboard door 😖
etc. etc. ad ♾
@miramarco someone put it in words
@miramarco All the this!
Today is hovering between regular day and bad day. Keeping fingers crossed and stressors low.
@miramarco ho god yeah. I mean, most days are sort of "bad day" for me right now because we got a different sort of coffee maker.
@miramarco So right now it's
Remember that we're using Aeropress
empty aeropress into compost
remember I need a filter
put filter in
figure out how to screw the bottom back on.
get beans into aeropress.
(Except I've forgotten every one of these steps at least once, including ending up with a perfect circle of grinds on the counter once and once tossing the beans into my waiting mug)
@miramarco tbh 14 steps is a regular day
@miramarco i have to think so damn hard to get my coffee routine under 14 steps
@miramarco Oh. *Oh.*
@miramarco it might sound stupid but I found that writing a list of really dumb steps, like you would tell someone helping you out to "get the pan from under the oven", and then just executing on it makes cooking much less stressful.
@miramarco About how chronic depression feels ngl
@miramarco YES this is so true!
