Does anyone remember that song from the 80s? I don’t know who sings it but I loved it at the time.
First of all, thank you all for commiserating and offering support. I'll respond to comments later. I did appreciate them, just forced myself to stay out of personal email and (mostly) off-line except for researching things I needed.
So I got done what I needed to, but with an inordinate amount of caffeine, stress and angst. I vowed to change things next time. But by this age, I am pretty certain I’m lying to myself.
I realize that this will be astoundingly unhelpful for those of you who suffer from the same fuckaroundiness and angst that I do. But hey, if you’re going to waste time in tiny increments, each moment intending to actually turn to the task you’re supposed to be focusing on, why not waste those moments on fun?
To that end, here are some of my faves:
Shopbop - Spendy, trendy, endless fun. And no tax and free shipping!
What dog are you? - Go to the site and click Game in the top left to figure out what dog you’d be. I'd be an Italian Greyhound. They were bred as Roman lap dogs. And yes, I think that suits me just fine.
Test your reflexes – I finally got up to 10 seconds and was thrilled. My biggest issue seems to be crashing into the walls in panic. Why approaching squares would cause panic I do not know.
Have fun! And if you do the dog thing, buy a spendy treat, or get really good at the reflex test, please let me know! Unless any of these cause you to miss a deadline. I have plenty of my own guilt to contend with.
