“Do not dismiss a book until you have written one, and do not dismiss a movie until you have made one, and do not dismiss a person until you have met them. It is a fuckload of work to be open-minded and generous and understanding and forgiving and accepting, but Christ, that is what matters.”—
After months and months of applying for jobs and master’s programs….I still have no answer. This extended visit to purgatory has not been too bad though. I have perfected my food service skills (and my cooking skills). I am tutoring online and simultaneously re-learning my history and english skills. And now I’m doing Freelance Social Media work for local companies.
It’s not all that bad. But I am ready to move forward….whatever that means.
People talk procrastination like it’s a bad thing. I find I become the most inspired (to do other things, that is) when I am in my procrastinating mode.
Like right now. I need to finish writing up a document for a job posting. But instead, I’m here, ranting and writing about why procrastination is such a good thing. I believe in the power of procrastination. In fact, I have a whole bookmark list on Safari dedicated to all of my favorite sites that keep me occupied when I should be doing something better.
Unfortunately, having been sick for a week now, I am not at my mentally fittest. I’ve become an ADD thirteen year old, unable to focus on something for more than five minutes. Even this post goes all over the place.
On a final note, my advice in this delicate state of mine is simple: breathe through your nose. Come on, do it. Feels good right? I bet, because I can’t. Breathe through my nose, that is. Appreciate the little things because one day, you may not be able to enjoy them. Granted, my congestion will clear up and I will be able to breathe normally in due time. But right now, that simple desire is all I have.
