impatience can be a virtue

I have heard from more than one person that I am very impatient.  I am not here to argue that point, because it’s true that I do not like to wait or be delayed in any of my endeavors.  But I think that overall, impatience isn’t such a shit quality to have.  My impatience really comes from the fact that I take a LONG time to decide what I want, and when I do decide, I want it immediately.  My brain must think that since I spent a lot of time deciding, any additional time waiting to get the item is a waste.

Here’s a quick example, and one that is driving me insane lately:  It took me damn near a decade to figure out what the fuck I wanted to do with my life, and now that I have, and I’m in school, I am highly annoyed with school.  I can’t take classes fast enough, and I mean that in a couple different ways;  School is easy for me and not being challenged bugs me.  I’m sure it’s just a matter of time until there are classes that challenge me, but I could be taking those now if school would let me.  But they won’t because I’m taking six classes already.  They feel the need to limit how many classes I can take even though with two kids, work, and six classes, I don’t have a grade less than 93% in any of my classes.  Frankly, I’m not even trying.  If I am willing to pay, why do they get to decide if I am capable of a certain workload?!  RAGEYNESS I HAZ IT.

But I digress.

Sometimes impatience is not a bad thing.  Impatience can simply be disguised resolve.  Good things will probably eventually come to those who wait.  But good things will come faster to those who don’t want to wait anymore and are willing to work their fucking asses off to make it happen.  I’m not the waiting type, and I’m sick of hearing that such a quality is a bad thing.

  1. I really wish you would have posted this earlier – sheesh! 🙂 Great post and one I can relate too…I am constantly being told “patience is a virtue”…yeah, well, so is instant gratification!

  2. Agreed. Cosigned.

  3. I totally feel you on this. I’m horridly impatient, but I really feel irritated at the fact that some schools try to “parent” you in what you can and can’t handle. Irritating.

Speak Your Mind
