Procrastination or Decompression?

25May10

Have you ever had so many things to do that you didn’t do any of them? I’ve been like this for ages. When I’d need to do homework back in high school and college, I’d clean my desk. Cleaning my desk was not on my list of things to do. I’d get so engrossed in cleaning. One little cleaning project would lead to another and bam! I’d be too tired to do my homework.

I still have a lot of things on my plate even though I’m not in a job right now, nor in school. Some of the things are have-to-do’s. Some are want-to-do’s. Others are just plain time wasters. My desk is already clean, so I can’t do that. In fact except for some deep cleaning my house is clean. I think my problem still is too many choices.

I need to find and strike a balance. However I’ve come to the conclusion over the years that some of my time wasting activities are actually methods of decompression; a way to relax and stop thinking about more serious things.

I don’t watch television, but I do watch television shows. Hulu.com is amazing to me. I can watch what I want at a time that is better for me. I can’t afford a DVR, but hulu.com allows me pretty much the same thing, but with “limited commercial interruption.” I love the voice of the announcer for hulu.com. Just saying…

I also watch some webisodes, like The Guild and even though my friend Z hates Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, I love it. My entire family loves it. We quote it often and even break out into duets and trios.

I just updated my list of television shows I watch. Castle is my favorite. It’s amazing. The relationships between all the characters are marvelous.

——spoiler alert—–

Except I am not thrilled with the season finale’s ending. I thought I was going to LOVE it, right up until the last 3 mintues. UGH!

I don’t even want to talk about LOST!

    You know how my standard answer to fixing a computer or any electrical thing is always the same! Unplug it and plug it back in or turn it off and back on again.

    Here is another standard comment! Make a list! Number it in order of importance and it feels so good when you get to mark one item off the list. Don’t you hate this answer!

    Ok! There you have a 50 year old answer to a 70 year old question (70 for me anyway).

    I love your blog! Especially the one of “Men in the House”.
