Does anyone else suffer from Red Circle Syndrome? Perhaps I should first explain Red Circle Syndrome.
Red Circle Syndrome is when you have a series of little red circles filled with numbers hovering over the apps on your iPhone (not sure if they have this same feature on androids) and you experience anxiety or compulsion as a result. The red circles alert you that there is something to address. And, with each red circle you encounter it either induces anxiety or any overwhelming compulsion to respond to the red circle alert. Immediately.
So I ask again, does anyone suffer (besides me) from Red Circle Syndrome??? It is so bad for me that I finally figured out (thanks to a really smart co-worker) how to turn off the red circles for my email (I keep red circle alerts on for other apps because I am curious when there is something on Facebook or when its time to advance in a game. Sad, I know). Whenever I see a red circle I have to get rid of it… and fast. I have disciplined myself with the red circle over Words with Friends (if you play and are looking for a really good competitor… let me know!). For whatever reason I can let that pesky circle suspend and the numbers add up for a few days… but all other circles, forget about it.
If you are starting to think I am weird, you are right. Hey, we all have little nuances that make us unique (at least that’s what I keep telling myself). Mine happens to be Red Circle Syndrome… and maybe an aversion to numbers 1, 3, 7 or 9 (and any numbers ending in those numbers – don’t ask!).
Just thought I would share. All part of Discovering Me.
Ps… isn’t the falling snow on my website cool. Love WordPress’ creativity! I just had to check the “Show falling snow on my blog until January 4th” box and ta-da (for other WordPressers it can be found under “Settings”)!
