How I Spent Today Procrastinating When I Could Have Spent It Chasing My Dreams:
Today, Friday July 6th 2012, I woke up early. Well, not *too* early (my alarm clock rang for a solid 6 minutes before I realized it was reality and not some annoying nightmare).
The kind of job I work is one with a fair amount of down time. Since being at work today I’ve had about 2 hours worth of down time and I’ve been here for about 2 1/2 hours. It takes me roughly about an hour to write 1,000 words if I budget some time for wall staring and nitpicking. Today I have written only the words in this post which, when you claim to be a writer, sadly don’t count.
So what *have* I done with these 120 free minutes of time? I sorted a box of t-pins mixed with regular pins and safety pins, I created some TMI moments on a public forum with the help of my sexy beast of a boyfriend, and I discovered via People online that Jackson Rathborn (Jasper from Twilight) had a son…
… well, it’s been about 8 hours since I started writing this (yes, I worked 10 1/2 hours today…) Still no words but I’ve managed to window shop and save 6 new items to my wish list at my favorite clothing store, watched silly animal GIFs at www.icanhascheezburger.com and dink around Craigslist for furniture I don’t really need.
I also asked my boyfriend who Loki is. He is a geek and he didn’t laugh at me (at least I don’t think he did…)
Productive day has been very productive. [sarcasm]
