Procrastination Thoughts

Me? Ummm, yes. I’m a very large procrastinator. I’m constantly saying I will do something today, tomorrow, next week, and so on. Meanwhile, the pile of branches in my back yard needs to go away, I need to kill the weeds, trim the bushes, clean the house, clean my garage, put stuff away, the list goes on and on. Everything gets done at some point.

Even though I don’t technically work right now, it’s still hard to find the time or the want to do these things. My mood dictates my actions. Yesterday was a doctor appointment, running errands, taking and picking my son up from school, he had a baseball game last night, which was canceled after we arrived. So the little down time I had yesterday was spent relaxing. Things that take normal people little time, it takes me more time. Sometimes a lot of time.

I think I have to be in a particular mood to get things done. Don’t ask my why or how, that’s just how it is with me. Do I want to do my chores? Of course not. The funny part is that after the chores are done, there’s a sense of accomplishment and a feeling that I did a good job and that I completed a task. My kids aren’t old enough or don’t want to help with some of them. Isn’t that what kids are for? To help with chores? I was just informed that my daughter does do chores around the house. Emptying the dishwasher and she does some cleaning of the house. Thank you little one.

I will be 51 years old in August of 2022, I will also graduate from The University of Arizona with my first Bachelor's degree in Political Science/International Relations. It was a long road to get to this point. In December of 2003 I had a blood clot burst in the back of my head which sidelined my career as a Test Engineer. I was not expected to survive, have meaningful employment, or go back to college. I accomplished all 3 despite my learning disability and other side effects. I spend many years in recovery. I decided to return to college and then enter the workforce once again. I am currently finishing my last few classes and then I will have my diploma in August of 2022. Extremely happy and proud of what I've accomplished. Now I just need to find a job here in Tucson. Hopefully a career opportunity. I started this website with the intention of blogging about my long journey to this point and showcase my writing ability with the hopes of breaking into freelance writing. I hope that my story can be an inspiration to others who have had similar life changing events and share thoughts in this forum, which I am new to and still learning.

  1. People always say the best part of having kids is that you can make them do all the chores… Kidding of course. I can be quite a procrastinator too and sometimes I think the only reason I do stuff is because I find it fun to check things off my list lol.
