|Procrastination, par Franck Vervial (Photo credit: Franck Vervial)|
Stalling for time is something I frequently do on my blog and in my life. I can always find something to do instead of what I really should do. It's kind of the way I've always been I guess. When I was a kid in school I'd put off projects to the last minute and then stay up late slapping something together. Perhaps to my detriment I'd always seem to come up with A grade work which only reinforced my bad habits of putting things off.
When I learned the word "procrastinate" in my senior year of high school, it became one of my favorite words. The word procrastination made my habit sound more important. Now I could justify my behavior by proclaiming myself a procrastinator. With smug satisfaction I felt comfortable with my poorly justified excuses. Stuck in a rut I am. I still procrastinate much of the time. Eventually I might be able to use the excuse of senility or something like that, but I'll put that off for as long as I can.
It's probably better to dump the excuses and just say things as they are. But who does that when excuses are so easy.
For the next few weeks on my blog I guess I'll be stalling for time like I've done for the past holiday seasons. I'll be trying to slap up something on my sites. If I don't make it I guess I won't be the only one, the difference being that many of you have already scheduled blog vacations. Why would I want to do something like that when I have an opportunity to screw up?
So some of the things you will be seeing in the next three posts are my Battle of the Bands post on Sunday December 15 ( I have planted some clues in this post), announcements on Monday December 16 (a Roast winner and an event to come), and on Wednesday December 18th I will roast myself as requested by Sydney Aaliyah. After that anything goes, but I will try to bring you something as I travel to places afar.
For now I think I've stalled enough for time. Happy Friday the Thirteenth! I'm outta here.
Are you a procrastinator? Why do you think some people tend to put things off? Do you have any helpful hints to help us procrastinators? Any idea what Christmas song I'll be using in my Battle of the Bands post?
