Fact: I don't like coffee. I just like saying Coffee Clutch in my best and deepest New York accent. Considering I'm a New Yorker, I'm pretty freaking good at it. So I've got my tea and I hope you have your heated beverage of choice, because it's time to gab the day away.
I don't always get as much reading done as I'd like. Sometimes I wonder what I'm doing to keep me from getting the work done. Obviously there's hanging out with friends and whatever works I have to get done. But since I'm funempolyed and most of my friends are employed, aside from running errands and job hunting, I don't have much to do.
So what's keeping me from getting my reading done? I'll tell you.
I've recently binged The Office and Parks & Recreactions. All in like 3 weeks. It's disturbing and I hate myself. Game of Thrones is next. I think. Unless you guys have better suggestions. But don't give me suggestions because I should really get back to reading. (No. Actually. Tell me what to watch.) Also, I really like watching lots and lots of movies. I happen to a own a lot of DVDs.
|I also like to eat popcorn when I watch movies.|
2. Creeping around the Interwebs
I spend way too much time on Twitter. And Facebook. And Instagram. And wishing there was more stuff on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stare at mindlessly. I don't know what's wrong with me but I'll open my computer with the intent to send a couple of emails (I don't like to write emails from my phone) and I'll be on it for hours. Basically the World Wide Web is an enormous time suck. Please send help.
I wish I was talking about board games. I mean, it would be board games if I had 2-3 people at my disposal to play Settlers of Catan with whenever I wanted. But I'm mostly talking about Candy Crush. And Words with Friends. Oh Candy Crush and Words with Friends. How I love you both.
I don't NEED anymore books. And most of the time when I go to bookstores, I don't even WANT anymore books. Or I do but I really can't spend the cash. But sometimes I'll just hang out there. I won't even read. I'll just spend way too much time petting the pretties like a freak. Or following Jen around because she works at my Barnes & Noble and I love her. (HI JEN! *waves*)
5. Sleeping too much
If I have to wake up early, I'll take a nap. If I don't have to wake up early, I'll stay up way too late and sleep waywayway too late. I don't regret it. I love sleep. And even once I wake up, I'll just lie there for a little bit because my bed is comfy and I'm not even slightly compelled to do a single thing. I know. I'm normal.
Okay. I'll stop here before this becomes too much like Family Feud (even though there are a million other things that keep me from getting to the books I really, really want to get to). But yeah.
I hope I'm not the only one who is constantly distracted by a trillion things. Please let me know about your distractions in the comments below. Not that I need more, I just want to feel better about myself.
