Bad habits, I need to quit you

When I was in college, National Smokeout Day was a big deal. I even had a mini poster of Mr. Spock encouraging people to stop smoking. It said, “Live Long and Prosper.” I’ve never smoked, but I have plenty of other bad habits that I need to stop doing!

I’m a huge procrastinator; this covers a variety of bad habits, including:

1. Putting off washing the dinner pans until the next day,
2. folding clean laundry,
3. and getting rid of junk mail! What if there’s a valuable coupon in that pile that I want to use later?

Procrastination also affects my writing. I’ll sit down to write a blog post, and do these things instead:

4. Check Facebook, scrolling down until I get to a status I’ve seen before,
5. check my email countless times, knowing there will be no new messages,
6. and decide to organize my digital photos. I also go on hunts for things I’m never going to find; I have an urge right now to go look for that Spock poster, but I’m going to get this blog post written first!

Some of my bad habits I picked up when I was a kid. I still:

7. Crack my knuckles,
8. need to clean my room,
9. and leave my bed unmade.

I do have a habit that others may think is bad, but I’m rather proud of it.

10. When I’m reading a good book or an interesting article, I can tune everything else out, even my own kids!

  1. Don´t talk about procrastination. Because reading your blog is keeping me from doing important (and not so important) stuff. I would rather read your blog though.

    I have been told in the past that I can be annoying when reading. I will laugh out loud if it´s funny and I will cry at the sad parts. Especially the laughing will get people annoyed, because they are not in on the joke!
