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.
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. ^_^
