I've got a paper to write, and I'm feeling a little like Spongebob...
I'm wasting time.
I don't wanna write my essay...
How do you see yourself through the most obnoxious of tasks?
I trick myself into it.
"I don't feel like doing anything. Think I'll just goof off all day".
"Hey, goofing off would be even more fun if I make a day of it and spoil myself. Guess I can make a quick trip to the grocery store for some goodies that I don't usually let myself eat, then turn around and come right home and goof off all day".
"Oh well, since I'm at the grocery store I might as well do my shopping, then I'll go home and goof off for the rest of the day".
"Oh well, since I'm in town I might as well go pick up my prescription, then I can go home and goof off for the rest of the day".
"Oh well, since I'm at the drugstore I might as well check my blood pressure, then I can go home and goof off for the rest of the day . . . ".
". . . and since the drugstore is right across from the natural food store I might as well see what they have on sale today . . ."
" . . .and since the natural food store is right next to the Dollar Store I might as well pick up a few things I need there. . ."
" . . .and since I noticed my brakes are starting to wear thin I might as well ride down to the campus and pick up some pads and use their maintenance station to tighten everything up. . ."
". . .and since I'm here I might as well oil my chain, adjust my derailleurs, and check my air pressure . . ."
". . .and hey! Someone just threw two new-looking tires on the recycle pile! I've been meaning to put new tires on my bike and these are close enough, and they're free. . "
". . . well now, since my bike is all tuned up and I have new tires, might as well go for a nice long ride. . ."
Next thing I know it's 8pm and after a quick showier at the gym I can ride home thinking about what a nice, productive day of goofing off I just had.
