Oh yeah. I indulge in procrastination all the time. It's not a healthy or good indulgence in any way. It keeps me from writing books. It keeps me from doing laundry. It keeps me from doing so many things that I would be so much better off just getting over with.
But I don't. I sit on my ass and watch TV or play fishing games on the Wii. I read books instead of finishing them. In fact, I have a WIP due to my editor soon. All that's left is about eight pages to go. But what am I doing? I'm not writing those pages that's for sure. No, I'm here. At least I can pretend this is being productive. I'm pre-posting the blog. That's good right? Right? It is. But it's not what I SHOULD be doing.
I did do laundry today, so that's something at least. Of course, that was a necessity because I return to normal work life tomorrow and had NO clean clothes at all. And since I think I may have already worn all of my work pants twice already, laundry had to be done.
I've been indulging in food lately too. But that ends tonight. I indulge in smoking, but that is also supposed to end tonight. Starting tomorrow I join the millions of people who promise to ring in 2012 with the no smoking/healthy lifestyle kick. The difference between me and them? I am going to pull it off. I've procrastinated on quitting smoking for far too long. I promised my dad I would quit and it is high time I come through on that promise.
As for the healthy living, I like being 26 pounds lighter. I believe I will like being ANOTHER 26 pounds lighter even more. So tomorrow I get back on the regular vitamin taking, stop eating out so much, STOP EATING CHRISTMAS CANDY, and try to get a couple vegetables into my diet every day. (Hello Subway sandwiches.)
But procrastination? I don't see that dirty little bitch going away any time soon. Oh, I'll get the books done. I have no choice. This one comes out in April. It has to be done. It has a freakin' cover. No backing out now. But I'll probably start working on that tomorrow.
