Distraction comes in all forms and packages and we tend to blame the devil (Well, we need someone to blame other than our very own self don’t we?).
I have trouble with self-control. I seem to stray every time I set out to do something meaningful. I end up procrastinating and when the sun sets to signal the end of the day, I tend to get mad at myself. I am like a programmed tape recorder at times.
Get up. Procrastinate. Repeat.
Although in my defense, they’re educational distractions. Yes, believe it or not. Before, I used to be easily seduced by Amazon and when the day came to a close, I won’t have writing to show, but books and clothes to order. Now, I easily get distracted by the French sites. I’ll visit YouTube to look up two or three French videos, end up looking up 10 or so after the nice suggestions tell me to, then I’ll open up another tab on French vocabulary, then another tab on French habits, then another tab, and another tab, and another tab. Once, I had so many tabs open, my laptop shut down on me.
But did I learn my lesson?
No, I was back at it again when I rebooted the thing which took half an hour. So, there, I can’t seem to exercise self-control over educational things. It’s a good thing, but it’s not what I set out to do in the first place. I hope to get this under control soon.
