Sometimes my motivation is high… I have energy and willpower and brainpower and I get things done. Take Jen’s wedding for instance. When she called to tell me she was getting married, I got my butt into gear and started researching, planning, ordering, buying and?emailing. I was so motivated by this in fact that I actually started planning other things as well, like dinners with friends and?picnics. I started looking up recipes and cooking a lot of new?things. I was in a good?place :)?But lately, the motivation has been oh so low.?I like to sit on the couch and think about all the things I should or could be doing, but I never actually get around to doing any of these things I should or could be doing.

I could be trying to plan our trip for August. Where should we go? What should we do? How much will it cost? How long should we go for? I don’t know. I’m too lazy to think about it. I used to be great at planning trips, now I just can’t make decisions. The sad thing is, I sit on my couch using my laptop all day?because I’m too lazy to get up and do anything else, but even then I can’t be bothered looking up trip ideas online. I’m the queen at wasting time online, you would think it would be REALLY easy to just do a few google searches on trip ideas. But no.. too much brainpower involved.

I could be studying Spanish for my class on Wednesday night. I could be reading, writing, looking things up. But nope… don’t really feel like it.

I could be looking up information on inventions. I have a good idea and everyone says I should go for it… but really it’s so much work and effort. I just need someone do do all the research for me! I will admit- I did actually spend 10 minutes of my life today doing a?google search on my idea and it looks like SOMEONE may have already put in a patent request for something similar… so that just decreased my motivation to do research even more. But if one day, some lady out there is rich because of this great idea… I’ll be PISSED. Maybe I should just write to Oprah and she’ll help me out.

I could be going to the gym. After the food and drinks I had this weekend, this is probably the first thing I should do today. And maybe it will be… once I get my butt of the couch.

I could be shopping. Not that I SHOULD be shopping or anything, but this weekend when I was out with Andrew’s friends I was telling the girls how I just DON’T shop for clothes here. How I’ve only bought 2 dresses for weddings the entire time I’ve lived here. They were appalled… If my excuse was that I just don’t have the money, it may have been understandable. But really, the truth is… I just don’t feel like carting myself to the mall on a bus and searching around in stores that I have NO clue about to find things that are just too expensive for their own good.

I could be working on my 101 in 1001 list. I’ve been really slacking there. I did so well at first… but now, not so much. I could be doing things like cleaning out my itunes, cleaning out my contacts, researching charities, etc. But nope.?

I could be blogging more. I really do have things I could talk about. But thinking about what to write is a bit too much for my brain at the moment.

Ok, so after writing this out, I feel waaaaay too lazy. I need to get off my ass and get cracking on things.?First I’ll go to the gym, then I’ll come home and research trip ideas and then I’ll work on 1 of my 101 items. I may even throw in some planning of a dinner party or something. Ok. here I go. Getting off the couch in 10, 9, 8, 7…

  1. That was long. But out of respect, I read it all.

    On Tuesday, I looked online to see if your idea was already out there. I found the bendable ones.

    The point is, do you think it’s weird that I was thinking about the exact same thing this week and it’s not like we’ been talking about it or anything?

    So I hope we’re talking about the same thing. Are we? Is it an omen….want to start a business? 🙂

  2. I am so glad I am not the only one who sits on the couch all day thinking about all the things I could be and should be doing but am too lazy to do them. I thought something was wrong with me but I guess I am normal after all.
