Unproductive Free Day

My one class was canceled, and I found someone to cover my work shift today. I had grandeur plans of productivity today. I was going to clean my room, do laundry, read for classes… Instead, I managed to waste the day away. For one thing, instead of waking up at about 10am as I anticipated, I woke up at 12:30pm. Instead of feeling the least bit motivated in doing anything, I ended up procrastinating on the Internet… the greatest downfall of my generation.

The funny thing is, I am so upset over the lack of productivity, yet, I don’t do anything. I keep telling myself I will do this, I will do that… But here I am, posting about it instead of doing it. I wish I could say this is just a lazy day, once every so often. Truth be told, it’s not. This is how I am all the time. I’m one of those people who don’t use his or her time wisely. I’m the type of person that will think it, and conjure it up in my imagination, but not go through with it until later on.

I don’t think: I have to do this or that, it’s more along the lines of I should do this or that. Which I feel is much less effective, it’s not as strong or certain. “Should” is one of those words that give you leeway in what to do, it differentiates between what you ought to do and what you need to do.

Well, I need to do laundry because I am seriously running out of clothes. And I need to return the keys to my old apartment. I need to read for classes before I fall too far behind. All in all, the things that I say I should be doing, I actually need to do.

The day’s not over… maybe I can turn it around!
