Earlier this week I read this post about productivity and your to-do list. They said if it can’t fit on a sticky note it’s too much to do in one day. Man how most of us are doomed. I thought this fit with Quick Takes since a post-it is the logo for the meme.
I wrote 75 things about me earlier in this week. Before I wrote mine I was fascinating in reading similar posts about other bloggers that are COMPLETE strangers. I’m not sure why I found that so fascinating. I think it’s my introverted way to be nosy.
I know it’s only September but I’m already prepping blog wise for Advent! I and the #CathSorority sisters are brainstorming an #AdventPhotoaDay challenge. Each day there will be a different type of photo to post (ex. An Advent Wreath) and we can use our blogs, twitter, facebook, or instagram to share the photos with one another using the hashtag #AdventPhotoaDay for everyone to search and view the photos! I’m having fun creating the list and I know everyone’s going to have posting pictures.
I found this post the other day about Tech Tools that help manage your life and found it very helpful. I always like to see what tools other people are using. My favorite is The Email Game. It literally turns checking your email into a game! Last night I earned 3000 points for clearing out my inbox. Yes it’s kind of lame considering I don’t even get anything with the points but it’s a good motivation tool to get a mundane task done.
I got iOS 6.0 on my iPhone and it’s pretty neat so far. I’m still learning everything it does but it seems to be running faster. I seriously will need to think about how much space I need when I’m ready for an upgrade in 18 months because I had to delete a TON of apps in order to have enough memory to upgrade. I think I need to do a restore because I have close to 2GB in “other” and via google that is the only way to get rid of having so much there.
And because I am running out of things to write about here is a Random Disney Fact: Did you know Cinderella’s Castle is the most photographed place in the world? Well it is gorgeous 🙂
For all my #CrazyCatLady readers here is an awesome Meme I found.

I can’t wait to do that advent photo thing! Also i like the new blog! I wrote 101 things about me a while back, but it took 2 posts because I couldn’t think of enough lol.
Awesome! A lot of people have told me the advent photo thing is an awesome idea. I can’t wait to see what people post 🙂
Yeah it was supposed to be 100 things but I ran out at 75 haha
LOLOLOLOL it took me a few mins to “get” the cat pic. Ohhhh dear. 😛 And I had no idea about Cinderella’s Castle!
I know it took me a while too but I like posting cat pictures 🙂 Yeah someone at a conference in Orlando told me that about Cinderella’s Castle. I have no idea if it’s true but I thought it was interesting 🙂
#7 is AWESOME lol!!!! And I have to say, with all the natural wonders and beauty of the world, the Cinderella thing does make me a bit sad!
I love reading random stuff about other people too, which is probably part of why I love Quick Takes so much lol! I think there is just something fascinating about seeing the ‘every day life’ of other people.
How long did it take you to write the “75 things about me”? It looks interesting. But I think I’d stall around #20!

I’m not sure I started it on Monday night and worked on it a little each night.
I hate cats but I LOVE your meme! So funny!
Beth Anne says
Thanks I thought it was funny. I could totally picture my cat saying it!

I really like your new blog! It feels so elegant!
That cat meme is too funny. Oh my goodness. I’m looking forward to the #AdventPhotoaDay series. It’ll be so neat to see how other people interpret it all.
