A low-dependency GUI journal that pops up and steals keyboard focus every 37 minutes, to force you to write an entry.


A comic with two characters. A character labeled "The program" is sitting on top of a computer monitor. A character labeled "You", looking angry, is staring up at the program. The program is saying, "Heyyy, whatcha doin'? Workin' on anything? Wanna write it dooown?


Text and timestamps of journal entries are saved in the directory annoying_journal, in JSONL format.

CLI parameters

  • --interval-secs <u64> - Change the pop-up interval (default is 2,225)
  • --prompt <String> - Change the prompt that shows above the editor.
