There’s something inherently mischievous about taking a 3 hour nap in the middle of the day, and as much as I want to be annoyed with myself for snoozing I can’t help but feel like I got away with something I shouldn’t have. I’m not entirely sure why I decided to take a nap, for all I knew I was perfectly well-rested, and yet I still slept from 2-5pm. Of course by the time I woke up I felt a pang of guilt and managed to drag my ass to the gym in the end.
I’ve always been great at procrastination, by the way. I’m talking stay-up-all-night-before-a-15-page-paper-is-due sort of craziness. University sort of enabled me to hone the craft, but back then it didn’t feel so bad. It’s like a right of passage, isn’t it? Everyone waits until the last minute to do their work at least once in their life! I guess I haven’t grown out of it. It wasn’t just writing papers, though. My procrastination expertise also took the form of not wanting to clean my room or do laundry. Hell, it’s still like that today. I’ve always found it very useful to procrastinate a few things at once because by the time you get around to doing the number one thing on your list, you’ve spent most of your time doing the rest of the things around the house as well. There’s nothing like a deadline to turn me into a cleaning tornado with the sole purpose of making the house immaculate!
Anyway, today was looking like it was going to be uneventful but I managed to turn it around. I wrote a list of “Stuff I Should Do Today” and made sure to jot down the most important stuff. So far I’ve crossed everything apart from two things I’ll probably do another day but I’m chalking it up to a win! One of the items on my list was to make some coffee, which by the way was super tasty and made me feel ten times more productive. But now I’m feeling really tired and looking forward to some TV time in a bit, so I’ll see you tomorrow!
