That’s right, let’s not beat around the bush with this one.
I am as lazy as you can get. Although I do have moments of non-laziness, overall I would describe myself as pretty lazy. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but there are times when it can be a bad thing.
Like if I want to lose some of the weight I gained while having a desk job… I would like to shed a few pounds, but I’m too lazy to work out. Plus, some of the weight has gone to my boobs, and they look great, so I don’t want to ruin that! Although, they are a bit heavy…
When my laziness is good, it finds ways for me to complete work or tasks in a more efficient way, so I can get it done with fewer mistakes and in record time. When my laziness does this, it’s the best.
But let’s not get laziness confused with procrastination. The reason I say “I am lazy” and not “I procrastinate” is because I hate having things hanging over my head. Not in the literal sense, but in the metaphorical sense of having things needing to be done. I consider it a spectrum. Being a go-getter and a procrastinator are on the opposite ends of this spectrum. Somewhere in the middle is laziness.
The worst is when I do end up procrastinating. I say I will do something, I make a plan to do it, and then I just… don’t. This doesn’t help me in the least, it brings me no joy, but my laziness just does not feel like doing this thing.
This blog post, almost did not happen. Because of my procrastinating ass. But it did, because I do this blog for myself. I like writing, I like complaining, I like showing off my crafts. It benefits no one else, except me, and of course it entertains some people. But the point of it was just to get my ideas and thoughts out in a medium that I a) can control and b) am fairly efficient with. (Efficient in that I type much faster than I can hand write.) Although, I have yet to delve into super meaningful and deep topics, it’s very cathartic to express myself in ways other than talking face to face. I like my alone time, I like doing things by myself.
Let us clear some things up, though. I am not saying that I do not like being around other people, but there are times when I just want to be alone and either do things by myself, or almost nothing at all. Perhaps it’s the introvert in me, or perhaps it’s my laziness.
I do feel selfish when I say that this blog is for me, but that’s really what blogging is. You type something up, and hope others read it and give you some kind of feedback or appreciation or something. While I do appreciate when people comment or tell me they enjoyed reading my posts, a lot of times I just write them to get them out of my head.
It’s therapeutic and nice being able to express ideas and thoughts. But my laziness sometimes leads to my procrastination, which helps me with nothing. Yes, there are lots of things I could do to change my lazy habits. But, alas, I am too lazy to change.
To those of you who suffer from these same ailments; I’m here for you.
