Well, it is embarrassing to admit this, but I'll just take the plunge: I'm lazy. I go to work and I work hard, but when it comes to anything else? It takes too much energy. I'm tired when I get home. I get up pretty early. I leave the house before 7 (barely before 7, but before 7 none the less). I don't really want to have to worry about a million different things when I get home. I did A LOT of that already. When I was in school I either had dance or music lessons or band practice or the other band practice or volleyball practice or colourguard...oh yeah and I occasionally did my homework too.
Once I started working, I suddenly discovered what they call "doing nothing". For the first time in my life, I could come home at the end of the day and not feel guilty that I wasn't reading or practicing or finishing an assignment (not like I always did all of those things when I was supposed to, but I at least felt guilty about not doing them). I guess somewhere along the line I got pretty used to it.
Now, it is time to de-lazify. So far, I have 2 projects that will help me. The first is to start training to write abstracts for this organization: link. I have been "accepted" and have received my training package and will start on that in the next few days. Doing this will not only look good on my resume and bring in some extra cash, but it will improve my writing skills and prepare me for other types of jobs or school.
I'm not quite ready to tell the world about the second thing...it would mean that I have to do it for real and I'm not quite ready to make it a sure thing yet. I'm pretty sure I'll do it though and I'll need words of encouragement along the way.
Ahh laziness....how I will miss you.
