When I was living in my much smaller apartment, I developed the habit of coming home, sitting down at the computer and taking off my watch. I’d put it on the desk beside the keyboard. It was more comfortable to type without the watch on. I eventually started doing this without thinking. It was fine, because I’d just grab the watch on my way out the door in the morning. My computer was about three steps from the door.

Now that I’ve moved, I still have the same habit. But, now I’m constantly forgetting my watch because my computer desk is upstairs, and not near the door at all. I’m going to have to break the habit. It doesn’t seem like a big thing, but when stuff becomes automatic, it’s hard to change. Certain changes come out of necessity. What other habits will I have to break because of new circumstances? What new ones will form? Life can be so interesting when you pay attention to the details.
