This week’s topic: Bad habits
Ooo…that’s a doozy. I have a ton of bad habits. Well, bad is up for interpretation, but I’ll go for the ones that the general public considers bad.
- I swear like a fucking sailor – I feel like I’ve been a bit subdued in this area on the blog lately, but in real life, I have a potty mouth from hell. Though I rather like this quality about myself, I know society frowns upon it.
- Procrastination – I procrastinate on everything! I put it off until the very last minute. In school, it worked well because I was always more creative at the last minute than any other time. I would sit down and try to write a paper or work on a project right after it was assigned and get nowhere fast. But the night before it was due? Suddenly my synapses were firing tons of ideas my way. It doesn’t work as well as an adult. I know if I just do whatever it is now and get it over with it would work better, but I can’t ever seem to make myself do it.
- Not responding to blog comments – This isn’t me being antisocial or not checking or not caring. I genuinely love every single person who has left a comment on one of my posts. BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY BACK! Do I go in-depth and over the top answer? Do I leave a flippant “thanks for commenting!” remark? Is the commenter even going to check back to see that I responded? X_X ::hides::
- Avoiding housework – I work full time (as does my husband) and then I come home and read and blog and do anything possible to ignore that stack of laundry or those dishes for just one more day. This probably ties into the procrastination thing, but I hate housework. I would make a terrible housewife. I hate cleaning, I can’t cook, and the idea of sitting home all day gives me cabin fever, much less the reality of it.
Is that it? That might be it! I reserve the right to add to this list as time goes on! What about you? What are some of your bad habits? Let me know in the comments!
