Annoyingly Distracted

Topics: Prompt, Distractions

I got to admit it. I'm saved by a prompt again.

I searched for the latest prompt at Promptly Jonica Community wherein Miss @JonicaBradley published a topic for prompts every week and saw that the latest prompt is all about "Distractions". I'm the type of girl who can hardly focus on one task. That is why when I work with one thing, I don't want any distractions until I finished it, or else I wouldn't finish it at all.

Like when I write an article, I should write it continuously until the end. I will write it in a quiet place with no people around. If someone distracts my focus on writing, I would surely forget all the ideas that I'm about to write. When I'm writing in the house, stuff like this frequently happens to me. It's pretty annoying, that's why I have to resort to writing challenges, random questions, and prompts instead when my ideas get messy and foggy.

Let me tell you what are my distractions here when I'm writing.


• The Annoying Housemate.

He's 60 years old but still healthy. Every time he sees me, he will call me out. Sometimes it is just for simple things, sometimes he will ask me questions that have an obvious answer, sometimes he will call me just to let me hear him mocking our other housemates, and sometimes he is just doing it on purpose or he just wants to call me to annoy me. I'm a kind of a multi-tasker. That's why even if I'm working on something else, I'm already thinking of what's next or what topic to write about later. Every time he distracts me, all the ideas that I'm composing on my mind have been wiped away. Since I got surprised by him every time, I can't remember it anymore. Then I have to think of another topic to write about, and that's the most annoying of all.


• The Inconsiderate Housemate.

They are the ones who don't think if it's already disturbing others. They will watch the TV with a high volume, at that point where you can't hear each other speaking already. Sometimes, they will play music and connect their phones to the speakers. Our house seems to blast every time they do that. I don't know if they also think about other people living in the house or just themselves. I'm sure that they headphones since we bought headphones together on the same day in just one order at an online shop. They still prefer to cause disturbance and distractions to others, though.

• Social Media

This is another distraction to me when I'm writing because when my favorite celebrities make a post and I got notified, I will open it immediately. It's kind of my habit already. I follow them on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Line. This is one of the cause why my articles are sometimes delayed to be published.

• My Music Suddenly Stops

Before I could open my Notepad to write, I will put my headphones first and find good music to match my mood, so I will be prompted to write more. There are times that my music will suddenly stop when it reaches the end of the playlist or my phone is just lagging. I will then immediately exit my Notepad and play the music again. I set it on a shuffle play option sometimes, so when the next music comes in and I don't like it or it doesn't suit my mood, I will pause my writing and change the music first or search for another one.


Those are the things that are distracting me from writing. So how do I cope up with these things?

When it is inevitable to encounter those things, I will just put my headphones on every time and act like I don't hear him. Sometimes when they are watching loudly, I will just lower the volume and scold them but it's still the same the next day, though.

About my self-imposed distractions, for now, I seldom use those social media platforms. I just use those when I promote my articles or to connect with my family, then scroll down a little bit. When it comes to my music since it depends on my mood, I just let it be.
