No Notes

My Notes app went missing this week. I downloaded the app again, and no luck. There is no trace of my grocery lists, the start of several blog posts, meeting notes, job hunting to-dos, website links, random reminders, and thoughts I just needed to put somewhere until I could find pen and paper.

I don’t know what happened to it. Did I overload it with too many ideas? Is this a sign that I’m giving myself too much to do? Did I accidentally break the app? Could it not take any more of my hopes and dreams and foods from Trader Joe’s to try?

Maybe it was all the screenshots I took of my solved Wordle puzzles. I’m too good at it, and pissed off the app.

Yep, that’s probably it.

Whatever the reason, I’m hoping I don’t have to start all over again. I just saw someone post the same issue on Facebook, and 44 people commented. Looks like I’m not the only one dealing with this issue.

Therefore, I’m making this a short post tonight so i can dive into the rabbit hole of the internet and hopefully come out successful.

    Swipe to the right to the screen labeled “App Library”. Find it there and drag it to where you want it. Unless you deleted it from your phone (which is a possibility as well) you should find it there.

    Ugh, I work in IT, and I find it embarrassing how user unfriendly this whole system is!
    Don’t your screen shots go into your photo folder though?
    Do you back up your data?
    Your hopes, dreams and Trader Joe food are important 👍🏻

    My phone has been doing wacky stuff including seeing some notes in my notes app as well. If you have an Apple phone, the Apple Store might be able to help you. Do you have I Cloud back up?

    I depend heavily on my notes app. I may have overloaded it. Time to clean it out.

    So sorry about that. I have found that technology isn’t always my friend. Sometimes, I just want to throw certain objects out of the window. That’s when I am channeling my inner Luddite. I hope that it gets better. I did enjoy your blog post. So, even without notes, it was successful.
