Procrastination (Written Over Months)

001 (2)Dear Diary,

Please help me.

Take away these obsessive thoughts of:

Yarn websites, Candy Crush, the Kardashians, Kardashian babies, Anthropologie, all the Housewives, Girls, social media, getting my FitBit numbers higher, my hair’s summer frizz, and Vanilla Kreme donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts.

Instead, infuse my brain with motivating thoughts of:

Nature, cute animals, motivating writing/editing tips, actual exercise at the gym, vegetables, Stendhal’s Le Rouge et le Noir, a walk after dinner, finishing books instead of buying more, cleaning around the apartment, consistent kindness to others.

When I list my accomplishments, it’s not as if I’ve done nothing. In fact, I’ve done a lot — just not everything. I have no concluding sentence here. Just that summer silliness has begun.

Yours in putting things off,

p.

      1. And I’m STILL not procrastinating by checking back to see if you responded. Can we both have ice cream as rewards? Because that wouldn’t be procrastinating either.
