Advertent is the opposite of inadvertent. Advertency means paying attention, taking heed. It is the process of being advertent.
Sometimes I'm just blasting through life. There are problems. There are people with problems. There are animals with problems. There are problems with my talk, my grant, my life, my goddam bank account. I tend to lose attention.
Repeat after me: multi-tasking is a chimera.
I will be advertent today.
