Procrastination Bit Me
And, I’m sitting here at my desk in the inky black hole of darkness trying desperately to complete my continuing education before the stroke of midnight on Friday.
Of course, I could’ve done this months ago. Because I didn’t, the video stream is not working properly. My printer is out of ink and can’t print the questions for me to review to understand the coursework. The program has now crashed three times in succession. I decided to wing it, and have failed the test two out of my allowed three tries. If I fail it again, I have to spend money to buy another module and try something else. All before the stroke of midnight on Friday.
In the interim, I have to go out of town tomorrow and Friday, and my access to computers and streaming videos and buying other continuing education if I can’t get this one to work will be severely limited. Again, it’s my fault. I know.
This blog post is being chronicled now, in the midst of my being ready to scream at everything and everyone, so that I will hopefully return to it when I purchase these blasted continuing education credits in 2011 and tell myself to go complete them RIGHT THEN AND THERE. I hope I will remember how much I deplore the nasally drone of the presenter who says four million words to get to the four I need to answer a question on his stupid test. I hope I will recall how tired I am right now. I hope how scheduled my time gets during this week of every year will be bored into my puny, procrastinating brain.
I won’t say I will never do this again. But I hope my putting it out here will give me a darn good reason why I shouldn’t.
