It's Like The Circle of Life

Does anyone else...

Nap when they should be blogging.

Blog when they should be working.

Watch tv or read when they should be cleaning.

Clean when they should be sleeping because they can't sleep due to napping.

Live off crap food cause they're too busy reading blogs to make something or buy the groceries to make something healthy and yummy.

Feel tired all the time due to possible lack of nutrients and from all the napping. And the staying up cleaning.

Feel broke all the time despite working and seemingly never buying anything (certainly not groceries).

Have tons of clutter and crap (books/clothes/stuff) despite beong broke. Which needs constant cleaning or it'll look messy.

But you can't clean. Cause you're either at work blogging, or at home napping. Or you get tired of living off olives and tatertots and make your way to the grocery store.

Sounds like you're talking about procrastination.

We're all King! (or Queen as the case may be).

Jamie Lovely said...

Um, yes yes and yes.

Tricia said...

Oh yes! :)

This is why I finally (after years of threats and promises) hired a maid. So at least the cleaning part is taken care of.

But I couldn't have possibly afforded such a thing in my 20's so I do understand where you are at.

Just pick one thing at a time to focus on and you might accomplish that. :)

I nap when I should be working.

This is probably why I can't keep a job.

This also explains all the friggin' tater tots.

i look at porn when i should be blogging,

and blog when i should be working out,

and work out when i should be getting ready for work.

and then work when i should be looking at porn...

it's a vicious cycle!

Procrastination is my middle name.

Mike-procrastination is so much more than being a slacker, it's a lifestyle really

Jamie- glad you're riding that train with me!

Tricia-I had a maid/cabana boy but unfortunately he chewed his leg off to get out of the trap and I'm back to cleaning.

Moooog- you and me both, my friend, you and me both.

Tequila- as long as there's porn in the equation it'll all balance out.

Deutlich-procrastination adds character ;)

yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! I agree to all of the above and am guilty of all of the above!!

Jenny said...

I do these things as well! I am a master at procrastination.
Life can indeed be tricky sometimes, and it's hard to find time to do the cleaning. :/
Well, instead of taking a nap, drink a cup of coffee or go for a walk, and I'm sure you'll feel more alert. ;)

I don't think I could ever get tired of tater tots.

I often catch myself raiding the fridge when I'm bored. I know I should be writing, but I believe I'll be better when I get food. Then I stare into the fridge, and there's nothing to eat, so I raid the cupboards, and then the fridge again. Finally I decide to make soup, because it's easy, and warm. Then I play piano. Then I watch a movie with my soup, and some other snackables. I finish the food, and finish watching the movie. Then when it's finally time to get to writing again, I feel like eating again.

Meghan said...

Fashionista- one more yes and there would be a post coital cig in the works :P

Jenny- any excuse for a cup of coffee and I'm game.

Paula- we're a lot alike for strangers from across the pond.

Chris- mexifries are a lifestyle choice really.

Malice-often when procrastinating I get hungry but don't want to make a meal cause too many dishes. So I snack all night making ten times more dishes than if I had a meal. Then I break down and make a meal cause the snacks aren't filling. It's a cycle similar to yours.

Soup is the best.
