I guess it's a kind of achievement.

The number of things I manage to successfully avoid doing grows every day. Ok perhaps that's at tiny exaggeration. There's a bunch of things, some big some small, the big things are well.. 2 things that I've managed to completely or mostly avoid doing for a few months now, and there's the other stuff that comes and goes, you know, cleaning, putting on pants that sort of thing, that I consistently am able to not do. Today was going to be my big "get stuff done" day. I mean every day that I don't have to work or don 't have to work until the afternoon is that, but it still counts. So far I've achieved.. *thinks about it*.. nothing. But I have excuses, one, I had someone in my room all morning, that is the part of the early afternoon after which I was already awake, in here yammering on about stuff and I wasn't able to concentrate. two, there's no water, they turned the water off in the building for half the day and that's just kind of annoying, can't shower, can't have a second coffee etc... and three and I stress this is the most important one, I don't feel like it. Oh and it's overcast and gloomy outside, and probably quite cold so getting out there to do something just doesn't appeal to me. And so here I am. Hey.. I just blogged. that's kind of something. *feels satisfied with self and doesn't do anything else for a week*

I think the trick is to be content doing nothing; to appreciate doing jack-shit, day in, day out. I mean, where do we get the idea, "I must be productive", from? Others? Where did they get it from? I'm very suspicious. I think we should pat ourselves on the back and embrace our idling.

yes, good point, if it wasn't for things that I need to get the fuck rid of from my worries I would be more than content to sit around do nothing arduous whenever I'm not required to be at work.. but I do got those things, and that bothers me, I can't completely enjoy my sitting around doing nothing of importance...

That's fair enough. Work commitments are a necessary evil.
