Six Word Friday: Stop and Go

Once again she says to herself:

Stop procrastinating. Go write a post.

go see melissa. don’t stop!

Believe Me, They’re Out There!

I was talking to my friend the other day.

This is a snippet of our conversation:

“I still need to make an appointment for that ADD eval stuff. I tried, I really did.”

“I think they have this system in place so that if you DO call back, they know you don’t need help.”

“Yeah that’s probably true. It’s like Calvin and Hobbes. The surest sign that people have ADD is that they haven’t sought treatment yet.”

Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes

I love Calvin and Hobbes.

Oh, it’s an agonizing slow day when you have homework to do and can’t seem to focus in┬áon it. Worse, I’m trying to do it so I’m spending my weekend staring at the blank page. Trying to work up the motivation┬áto get it done. Somewhere, I must be able to find it.

I probably should have just stopped and done something else for a while. Maybe something so fun that I would feel guilty enough to return to my assignments and get a move on. Instead, I spent the weekend in what my friend calls gray time. That place of should where you should be doing homework, but you aren’t. There are other things you could be doing that would be more fun or more useful. But, to stop would be to actually play hooky from your school work. So, you spend your time in a distracted time filling stupid place. Watching movies or tv you didn’t want to watch just because it was on, noodling around on the internet doing nothing, or maybe “research.” What a terrible waste of time and energy. Not to mention the other members of the family who catch some of the blowback. Not really fair to anyone.

I learned a lot about Attention Deficit Disorder in my research for one of my assignments. As a matter of fact, I could (and did) spend all day reading articles to find one to do a write-up on.

I did eventually pick out an article. Yay.

The only other productive thing I did this weekend was get registered for my fall classes. whoopee.

And here I am moaning on my blog about it. This is a gray┬átime blog post. I’m posting it because I feel like I want to post something, but I don’t feel like I can really stop and take the time out from (NOT) writing my papers for class to write a meaningful and well developed post.

Well, I think I’m going to quit whining and go eat dinner.
