Haul / Life: Symptoms of procrastination
Today I'm going to tell you a story of how you know when you are having serious symptoms of procrastination. So this is how my morning went.. I'll explain it a la '500 days of summer'.
You have your expectations of how your day will progress and then you have the reality, how it really goes.. My day started of really well.. My expectations were in line with reality. I woke up at 8am to get ready for my driving lesson. It was hard to get my butt out of my bed but I managed. The driving lessons went quite well just as I imagined. My plan was to drop myself off in the city to study for my exam in the library. So I did and I decided to go to the supermarket to stock some food.
This is were it went wrong, where my expectations and reality collided and went seperate ways.
I didn't know what I wanted to snack on, so I decided to go to the V&D a department store, where they sell clothes, jewelry, makeup, home stuff and food. Instead of walking to the food corner, my feet took me downstairs where New Look has its corner. And this is where it went horribly wrong. I went to the sale rack. And you know when there are days where everything you put on suits you well? Well this is that day. Eventhough everything was on sale, I could not really afford it. You know you're in trouble when you don't have a lot money to spend on but still manage to buy clothes. Sometimes I'm just embarrassed by myself. Eventually I bought the items and went to the supermarket to buy a lousy croissant just to compensate my expenses. After all this, you'd think that I went straight to the library. No no no, this chick would not listen. While getting my croissant, the bag with my clothes broke, and beside this I was carrying my laptop with my other hand, because it wouldn't fit in my backpack. So yeah I was a mess and it wasn't even noon yet. I called my brother up to see if he was home, he lives 10 minutes walk away from the city, and begged him to study at his place since his place is usually quiet. And that's it. This is where I am right now, supposedly studying.. Still procrastinating.
