That may be because I often do my notes in present tense, in which I’m describing a scene to myself, not writing it.

Tense is the grammatical word to describe the ending of a verb (usually –ed for past and –s for present). English usually marks the sense of time with an adverb (for example: it is happening today or it happened yesterday.)
