Don’t put off until tomorrow… Really, don’t put it off. Procrastination is the bane of my life. Yes, I do tend to procrastinate. Sometimes, admittedly, it is stuff that I can successfully put off forever. But not most of it. Most of it needs to get done. And most of it needs to get done NOW! Unfortunately, as I said previously, these days I just don’t have time. This commute is killing me. I’m losing a good chunk of my day just getting to work and getting home again. I don’t have time for this foolishness. There’s too much that needs doing at home, and I just don’t have time for it.
The house needs cleaning, the junk needs sorting, there’s little repair jobs here and there that need to be done. But I don’t always have time even to walk the dog. I need to walk the dog. It’s about the only exercise I get, besides running to catch trains and shuttles. Sigh.
I want to write more. No, I’m not writing the great American novel. I just write mind candy, but it’s good mind candy. We all need an escape every now and then to help us relax. I’d like to think my writing does that. If nothing else it does help me relax.
Not that writing isn’t work; it very much is work. But I find it relaxes me in the way that some people describe exercise. I don’t find exercise relaxing, and I don’t feel better after exercising. But I do with writing. I guess this is one more way I’m weird.
