On Your Desktop

I was looking at files saved to the desktop of my laptop and thinking, “It really shows who you are.”

A man I work with asked me to help him test some software. He needed to assist a client remotely, so I let him access my computer. When he was done clicking around, he backed out of the program and could see my desktop.

There was a long pause.

Like, “Barb? What is all of that?”

Memes and pictures for Blogs.

Pretty pictures and inspirational quotes. I would imagine his desktop looked different than mine. He’s a business man, so there’s probably a lot of Excel spreadsheets. When he asked me to open a program like Excel, I had to search my computer to find it. 🙂

Here’s one saved on January 1st.


Someone asked me, “What are you passionate about?” I responded, “Anything I choose to do will be fueled by passion.”

Otherwise, I have to make myself do it, but sometimes that’s good. It gets me out of my comfort zone and I find a new passion.

I will file the memes into their designated folder, but that will just open up space for more. I’ve never had too many memes.

In a line up of opened laptops, could you pick out the one that belongs to you?

What’s on your desktop?

  1. I could most definitely spot mine! On the right in a column are a small select group of folders that I dip into regularly for things I’m working on such as a current children’s book, my Etsy shop, etc. Plus a possible client file or two, whose job I on. But the rest of it is always a black background with a centered nature/animal/inspirational image. Right now, it is a gorgeous photo of some orcas at sunset.

  2. Hi Barb. Yes I could definitely pick out my laptop. It probably sounds strange, but my wallpaper is from a picture I attempted to re-create from a recurring nightmare I had when I was a preschooler. I posted about it on my blog a long time ago. It’s of grey leaves falling from a bright hole above my head as I fell in darkness, similar to what you might see if you fell into a well. I’m glad I outgrew that dream, now I just have strangely fond memories of it. Thanks!

  3. I have pictures on my computer. No games other than Freecell and Solitaire which were preloaded. My links are for things like the hospital, The Globe (national newspaper which I subscribe to), Headspace (meditation), WordPress, Sirius XM radio.

  4. This is a good reminder to get some of these folders off my desktop _ i have a folder for each of the granddaughters with all their photos; a monthly folder with that months cat photos, well that gets filed at the end of every month, except for a folder marked ‘statements’ which has the paid bills in it, yup, mostly photo file folders. What you call memes I call posters and there is folder for those, that can be filed away to and be off my desktop…the folder with the bus schedules, that can stay I think, I use it for quick reference.

  5. My laptop? I have a thing that chooses random weekly pictures. It’s a surprise. On my iPad it’s a pic of my pets and my daughter. On my phone it’s a pic of my daughter.
