Stop! Don’t rush me! I’m waiting for the last-minute!!
That should really be my motto in life. Not my intentional motto of course. That would be something more like, “Happiness is a choice we must make everyday.” (A statement I believe emphatically, by the way.) That’s the motto I would choose.
Unfortunately, procrastination seems, for me at least, to be a permanent way of life. It has been since I was a child. Why worry about that complex science project due next week? I’ve got an entire week to work on that. Well, maybe now I only have three days. Oh my God, is it due tomorrow?? How did that happen? I’m sure I can create an entire solar system in a few hours. Or maybe something that looks roughly like it might be a solar system. Such was the state of my academic career. I can’t actually remember tackling a project with more than three days left until it was due. Maybe I did that once of twice, but the habit never stuck.
Even this blog is the result of extreme procrastination. I signed up for this service many moons ago. I was going to start posting on a regular basis to help showcase my writing as well as discuss some of the more pressing issues in the world today. Nothing like politics or religion. There are far too many people out there arguing about that stuff. No, I wanted to cover topics like motherhood, children, and one of my favorite things to discuss at length — college football. I had the best of intentions. Unfortunately, my old procrastination habit died a hard death and as a result very few things have been posted.
So, as part of my New Year’s resolution, I decided blogging would be on the list. As you can see by today’s date, it wasn’t that big of a priority. But, hey, I’m making progress! It only took me seven months to get things rolling as opposed the full year and a half between previous posts. It may not be much, but I take my accomplishments where I can find them.
At any rate, welcome, finally, to my little corner of the world and my thoughts on the all around me. I hope that you will come back to visit from time to time. I promise to post a little more often than once a year. It’s a resolution, after all, and we all know, those are never broken!
