Regretting July

You ever wonder why people say that they are chocoholics?  It’s not like there’s any chocohol.  There are alcoholics. But that’s cause there’s alcohol.  Just some food for thought I guess.

That’s another weird saying.  Food for thought.  I wonder who came up with that one.  Maybe a chef.  Or a hungry person.

Man, I went through some of my old blogs, I had to stop in between cause they’re so ridiculous.  I gotta wonder how many people actually read them in their all the way through.  I would think/hope not many.

Ok, most of them have under 10 views.  That’s acceptable.

These past couple months have been up and down.  Have you ever made a mental list of things you want to accomplish, and then at the end of the day, you look back, and you think, “well, I ALMOST did one of those things.”  That’s my July.

I don’t know if it’s the heat, or just laziness, but I am not doing anything productive with my life right now.  I look back on everyday and say, “what in the world did I do today.”  I usually mentally respond, “almost something.”

It’s been nice to take a break from a busy schedule, but now I’m slowly slipping into terribly unproductive.  And that’s never a good place to be.

I’d hate to look back when I’m like…older… like 30 something (no offense to anyone who reads this and is 30 something.  I’m not saying you’re old.  I’m just saying you’re older than where I’m at now) and think about the opportunities I’ve wasted at 23.  I’m in my prime (I think).  I should be accomplishing things.  Not watching tv.  I should be getting the most bang for my buck with the body and free time I have now.  I’m scared I’ll look back and realize I spent more time playing video games and watching tv than working on relationships and getting the most out of my current freedom.  It won’t be long before I have more responsibilities than I want and can’t do some of the things I can do now.

So the motto for August: Maximize my time/youth.  Laziness produces nothing but regrets, and instead of doing things because I might be scared that I’ll never do them again, I should do them because I WANT to.  Just takes a little motivation.

Now I just gotta remember where I put that…

Here’s to a productive summer month
