Working from home

It’s awesome.

Don’t feel like changing out of my pjs until 3?  Don’t have to.

Need to catch up on my daytime soaps?  How convenient that I’m already in the living room.  (Sidenote: I don’t actually watch soaps.)

Hungry?  The fridge is only a few feet away.  (This can sometimes be a bad thing.)

Thirsty?  See above answer.  (Except this isn’t a bad thing, since all I have to drink is water and we all know how important it is to get your 8 glasses a day.  Or is it?)

Need a break from work because I’m bored?  I’m at home while everyone I live with is either at work or at school; I can do anything I want!  Dance like an idiot all over the apartment to the song that ROCKED my WORLD when I was 11?  Check.  Make sure nothing newsworthy has happened in the last 20 minutes?  Check.  Actually make my bed (never thought that would be on my list)?  Check.

I have the power to do whatever I want during the day.  I make my own hours.  If I want to spend any amount of my day doing absolutely everything or absolutely nothing, I can do that!  I. MAKE. MY. OWN. HOURS.

That is…actually not so good.  For those of you who don’t know me, I am the best procrastinator in the history of the world.  No joke.  I actually tend to do better work when I procrastinate.

Exhibit A:  Freshman year of college.  First scary honors class.  Paper I spent three weeks writing?  B-.  Paper I spent 5 hours writing the night/morning before it was due?  A.

I'll be honest with you. Getting an A on a paper in this guy's honors class was like getting an A++++ and 17 gold stars on every other paper I had ever written and would ever write in college.

Exhibit B:  Ummm…other stuff like exhibit A.  I’ll get back to you.

But seriously, I procrastinate like it’s nobody’s business.  I see that deadline the way those guys who run with the bulls see the bulls.  How close can I get without getting gored/dead?  The only problem with that is the majority of the work I have to do right now has no deadline.  That’s right.  You heard me.  No.  Deadline.  What is a girl to do?

My answer: blog.  ^_^
