Yesterday sucked! And not just a little bit of suckiness either. No, my Sunday got some serious Mr. Ed deep throat action. It started with me waking up to the sounds of Beyonce’s “Beautiful Nightmare” at 6 o’clock in the morning. This is my wife’s wake up music on her cell phone, which she politely left in the kitchen so it wouldn’t disturb anyone. Gee honey, thanks! That would have been just super if it wasn’t for the fact that even a mouse pissing on cotton is loud in complete quiet at 6 AM! I felt like I was in a fuckin amphitheater! But I love my baby none the less. I just wish she would be inconsiderate next time and turn the damn thing off.
The rest of my day consisted of astronomy homework, a midterm exam for said astronomy class, and re-writing my English essay. As you have probably guessed, I’m finally trying to finish up my degree. All in all that is not so bad. But if you knew the depths of my disdain for anything science related; excluding anything related to the female body, but including the monthly “hell week”, you would feel my pain. This disdain leads to me taking the entire day to complete something that probably would have taken only a few hours for most people. I just can’t comprehend that shit. It’s like my brain fights me every step of the way, yelling “Stop the torture you sick, sadomasocist bastard!” But it is my own damn fault. I actually had the entire week to do it. Unfortunately I live by the famous Mark Twain quote “Why put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”
I guess I have always been a procrastinator, especially when it comes to my education. I don’t think I have ever completed a project or paper in a timely manner. I complete it either the day before or in most cases the day it’s due. I don’t know why it is. My guess is that I actually give two shits about college, but I need it none the less. Don’t get me wrong, I think higher education is important. I mean, that is what I tell myself so I at least sound somewhat credible when I get ready to feed my kids that crap when it’s time for them to start college. In all seriousness though, it’s probably more of the fact that since I have such a busy life, that the things I care about the least, get the least amount of attention. But maybe that is how it should be. The reason the school work waited until Sunday to begin with was that I was busy working, spending time with my family, resting and enjoying myself. Those are my priorities, and they should be. If I don’t prioritize my happiness, then no one else is going to do it for me. If I’m going to suffer, then I might as well do it on my terms.
There you have it. Leave it to me to find a way to justify procrastination and make it “make sense”. Damn, I’m awesome.
