Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1120: A Procrastination Day

So I’ve been sitting here doing very little for most of the day and whilst there has been purpose in that very little, I’m wondering if it was the best use of my time today. There are a few things that I need to take care of and some of those things can easily be spaced out, but for some reason today that was not to happen and that is due to procrastination. I got one thing done and that was a thing that needed doing, but it was not urgent and it didn’t need to be completed this week and so I feel I’ve wasted my time. Maybe I haven’t and I’m just overthinking but sometimes overthinking happens.

Sometimes you need to ride the wave of procrastination to get somewhere, but that is assuming that you are procrastinating by doing things that aren’t as pressing as other things. Maybe you don’t get to where you needed to be, but you still get somewhere. Maybe it will pay off down the track; I’m not sure.

Anyway, I’m now here and it is the afternoon and it is late in the afternoon. There was little done and that’s on me and so I now race to get things done before I need to head on out. There was so much more that I could have done, but alas, I didn’t and so I am here and I am racing to get more rather than less done.

It always is a bit of a race really, but what am I racing against? I mean, I do now have a bit of pressure on my shoulders, but it’s not necessarily the worst thing out there. A bit of pressure to get me moving is a bit better than not anything happening at all, and it’s also not heavy pressure, or at least I’m pretending that it’s not heavy. Maybe that isn’t a good thing.

Maybe I should have made better use of the time I had today. I’m sure it would’ve paid off in ways that I am yet to understand. Well, I do understand how it would’ve paid off but there remains tonight and so tonight I can still get those things done and maybe I just will. Maybe the day will stretch out the way it does and I’ll get the things done tonight and that will be that, as they say.

I think I’ve illustrated the point well enough and soon I must head out, but there will be some more before then, but before then I will keep on banging away on this keyboard. I will think about procrastination some more and then I will do some other things. There will be some night driving tonight and then there will be some returning. Then there will be some getting warm and after that, who knows what will come?

Well, I do know; it will be getting more stuff done due to my flagrant procrastination pushing too many things back.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:53:98

Really should’ve done more today. Should’ve written this earlier on, but I imagine it would have been much different had I done so.

Not a good writing. I think a lack of sleep affected this one.

Written at home.
