I am the QUEEN of procrastination. I could fight almost anyone for the title. I pack for vacation at the very last minute, finished essays in College with only hours to spare, and regularly use dry shampoo as a replacement for actually washing my hair because telling myself 'next time' doesn't actually work to get it done (I do shower though, I promise)
Though I do actually seem to do my best work under the pressure of a deadline there are certain things that I just need to bite the bullet and get done. Because if I don't my list is just going to keep getting longer and I might not be able to get out of bed because of the pressure of it all. Overdramatic I am not...
Ten Things I Keep Putting Off...
1| Calling the service department of the car dealership I bought Eleanor from to schedule work for a recall for 'side door hem corrosion'. I actually did call in the early fall and they said someone would call me back and they never did. Hmph
2| Posting items on a FB garage sale site. I went through all my closets (and so did my Mom) and there is a HUGE pile of clothes/accesories (mostly brand new with tags still attached...) to be sold but I just can't be bothered to do it. Someone send me some motivation because not only will the extra $ be nice but so will having my fitness room back to normal
3| Calling to book a massage appointment. This is a must before the end of this week!
4| Getting back into a fitness routine. I finally got my braces off (yay! - more on that in another post) and have been indulging in all the thing I've been missing out on over the last 2+years but if I don't get back on track with my fitness then I'm not going to achieve my goal!
5| Cleaning the spare bedroom. Christmas threw up in there and just the thought of starting to reorganize it all again gives me hives
6| Contacting SGI to have my windshield and drivers side window replaced. I live in SK so its inevitable that I'll have a cracked windshield but its gotten progressively worse and is finally to the point where it just needs to be replaced. I also have had a chip in my drivers side window since July 2015 that slowly turned into a large crack. It never bothered me until now because now my window won't roll down at all and its a huge pain in my ass. That means no drive thru for coffee on the days I work in the city - no bueno!
7| Upgrading my cell phone. I've been eligible for a new phone for almost a whole year but I keep putting it off because $$$. Also, they keep coming out with a new iPhone so often that I don't want to get a new one and then two months later they release the newest version. The struggle is real
8| Quitting my second job. I started in mid August 2015 and really only planned on being there until I had saved some money back up after my brothers wedding and after my braces were paid off (in June 2016). Here I am almost to the end of January 2017 and I'm still there. I did cut back my hours a bit late last Spring but I have had the intention of dropping the second job completely for a few months now but I just keep putting it off because I really like the owners of the business and I don't want to inconvenience them. I will do it by Spring. It will be so nice to have my Sundays back!
9| Ordering new tires for Eleanor. Both my Dad and MN have been giving me crap about Eleanors tires because I have the same tires on her from when I bought her brand new a little over 5 years ago. I have the tires picked out I just need to finalize the order and schedule the appointment to have them put on. Which I keep putting off because I hate the thought of seeing that money drain out of my savings account. Adulting - ughhh
10| Ordering photos from the past 2+ years. Once again because of $$$. I also want to order a few photobooks from trips/special events and that is pricey so I've just been putting it off. What I have to keep reminding myself is that the more I put it off then the more pictures I need to order and the pricier it all gets...
A few of these things are on my January Goals and there's only one more week for me to get those crossed off so I guess I better get to it...
Do you also see the pattern of putting off things that require talking on the phone? I'm pretty sure I hate talking on the phone more than anything else on earth. I need a personal assistant just to make all my phone calls for me. Applications accepted in the comments ;)
