The Project and Procrastination

I feel a little as if I’ve been through a tumble drier of late. So far, January’s been a crazy month. I’ve had a lot to do at work, more so than usual and a lot more admin work which is my death and I’ve had my 5 month evaluation on which the decision will be made on whether I’ll be re-employed again or not. It wasn’t bad as evaluations went, but I still hate being weighed and measured.
My work is stressful, even though on a day to day basis I don’t work as hard as someone who spends all their time sitting in front of their computer. I only see about four to three clients a day but it’s draining and the distances that I have to cover to get to them is murderous, espesually with the amount of rain that we’ve been getting.
I’m not complaining naturally, I remember very well where I come from and ‘the waitress days’ are never far from my mind.
But, I’m tried and it’s taking its toll on my writing.
The Project has taken a stumble. I feel like someone who’s just let a whole bunch of fishing line fall down and roll away from them. I’ll have to go back about 9000 words to try and fix what I messed up. I’m not a happy camper, but it’s all about learning isn’t it?
Meanwhile, I’ve become totally addicted to Cyanide and Happiness comics. I’ve already read over 1000 of them.
This one in particular is one of my favorites.
Procrastination is great.

    Hey Alyssa!

    Let’s get back on track together, shall we?
    An epiphany started brewing on Monday and bloomed today; I need to change my unemployment routine or I’m going to dig myself a whole right in depression territory.
    Now that the bulk of my resumes are out, I refuse to obsess. A little follow-up, maybe one more application a day but nothing more.

    What I need to do now is to find the will to write, which seems to have disappeared. I’ve lost my momentum (though for different reasons than you have).
    So what do you say, writing buddy, are we conquering the Earth or not? 😉

    Oh! And I love the comic!

      Yes, lets do!
      I’m emailing you as we speak. It’s time to get our knees in gear and our fingers in the loop.
      Ra ra ra.
