Hello. My Name is Becky and I'm a Procrastinator

First of all, please get out of google reader and notice and admire my new layout.  I'll make a new header, but for now it's the same pic as my Twitter background.  I'm actually kind of proud of that photo.  I took it on vacay and photoshopped the crap out of it. 


I am a procrastinator.  This is something I freely admit.  I procrastinate because it hasn't gotten me into any trouble--yet.  I did it in college, and still got good grades.  (I also never really studied because it was boring and there was always something better on tv.  That's what the 10 minutes before class was for, anyway). 

Procrastination case in point:  I just finished unpacking my suitcase from vacation.  RELAX, it was just the clean clothes I didn't use while I was down there.  That's why I figured it was ok...I mean they can sit in my drawer, or they can sit in my bright purple suitcase.  So they sat.  For three weeks. 

I've also noticed that I haven't made any headway on my Life List (which I'm still debating on posting) and my  goals for 2010.

Which leads me to my next point (or something...I've already given up my first train of thought...).  I am not a overly neat person.  I AM NOT DIRTY!  I don't leave food all over the place or half drunk glasses of soda or tea (any more) laying around.  But I'm not neat.  All of my things don't have homes.  I like to think that this will change when I have my own apartment and I can spread out, but I'm not too sure that it will.  I'm just lazy, I guess.  It's easier to throw my coat on the floor than to hang it up.  I know you're saying it's not, and I get your logic, but in my head, it is. 

I like to take the easy way out sometimes.  I think that mindset has translated and crossed over into other areas of my life.  I've never actively pursued a job.  In high school I worked where my friends worked and they vouched for me and I got hired.  I did a few summer temp stints at job #1 before I worked there full-time.  My aunt works there also, so she just called me whenever there was something open.  I didn't even go after the internship I had during college.  I put my resume on and hoped for the best.  Somehow it's all worked out.  But I think it might be time to figure out exactly what it is that I want to do and to go after it. 

I don't know if this post is babbley or backwards or if it makes sense.  I'm not even sure how I got from point A to point B on this one.  I guess it really is time for some self-exploration (get your minds out of the gutter).  Sorry for the serious turn...please go back to the balls post.


  1. It's totally ok. I still haven't taken a few things out of my suitcase. From our wedding in March. Procrastination high five!

    The new layout looks great!

  2. Ditto, ditto, ditto, yeah i think i see why we're friends ;). The only reason i am neat is because T makes me neat. I don't know why he is so insistent on not throwing coats on the floor - i don't care what he says, it is easier- but he made me Maybe it happens when you grow up? He is old and now i am too i guess.

    You need to get an apartment - in Philly - and be my neighbor. I think that is the only resolution here. Or something. I think i need some coffee...~Katie

  3. Hi! I'm a new follower. I saw your comment on Surferwife's blog that you did a post on balls. Gotta follow you for that!

  4. i do all of those things. times a million.

    and i like to say "i am messy, not dirty". like, i will never leave food out to rot. but i will have a pile of clothes (i disliked the way they looked when i tried them on) the size of mt everest on top of my bureau.
