I believe I am freakishly good at procrastinating. Yeah. There have been projects and writings I have been working on that I have started either years ago or several months ago. I don’t mean to be so good at procrastinating, but I’ve been hoping it would be something I can change because things need to get done. It’s not so much as laziness though I would start something else new. Sometimes, if I lose interest or decided to come back to it later, I would start that new thing and/or take so long to come back to what I was working on.
Another thing I am freakishly good at is reading. Yeah, I know. You might be asking how can I be that good at that. Well, let me tell you. Since a little girl, I would go through boxes and bags of books and magazines and encyclopedias in a week or less (depends on life). I never skimmed through them, I actually read all of them. I remember receiving those Highlights magazines for kids, encyclopedias for kids, and Disney books in the mail and how I would read in rapid speed for so many (I forgot the number) in one weekend and can recite what was either written or give a break-down of my own about what I’ve read.
Since then, my parents would have more books and magazines come in the mail. And I would also skip to the school and town’s library ready for the next book adventure.
Now, I’m still that way, and I feel like now I have to read slowly because I don’t want the book to end. I want to savor the time spent with the characters and go on that literature journey with them.
I am also doing another book challenge on Goodreads this year where I’ll read 50 books this year. I’m at 15 books read so far. I will share the books I’ve read once I finish the challenge. Some days, I have to find time to read books when work and life get in the way when I just want to read.
I may procrastinate like crazy, but not so much when it comes to reading.
Thanks for reading.
