sometimes you just do something to avoid doing something else

I should be writing a sociology paper right now.  I just want to get that out of the way.  Maybe you will chastise me for being here blogging (blahgging?) instead, and maybe that will nudge me into writing this paper I don’t really want to write, not because I am unable to, but because it will bore me to fucking tears and I am just trying to avoid that for as long as possible.

Try me.  Tell me to go do my homework.

Thanks, but no.  I’m not going to.  I appreciate you trying to put me on the straight and narrow, though.  I will wait until probably 1am Tuesday to sit down and type out three pages– that are due at 11am Tuesday– about the local, national, and world society on the day of my birth.  I could really just put

‘EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE’ BY THE POLICE

TOPS CHARTS ON THE DAY I WAS BORN

ALSO: REAGAN & SHIT

on a neon orange piece of paper, tease the shit out of it’s hair, and that would sum it up perfectly.  Hello, 1983.

Fuck I do love that song though.

Sometimes we do something just to avoid doing something else.  Have you ever done that?  Do you ever just create unnecessary work for yourself because you are trying really hard to not do some other work that is fairly important?  There’s a fair chance you are procrastinating like a motherfucker on something right now.  Let me help you with that.

HEY LOOK CUTE PICTURES OF GOATS:

You’re welcome.  OK, go away now.  Seriously, I have homework to do.

  1. LEETLE GOATS! my favorite (non)paper writing activity was cleaning the entire house, then reading the entire internet and then clipping the dogs nails…. it worked out pretty well.

  2. I didn’t even know goats could BE cute. You win.
