Procrastination Packer

Posted on: June 6, 2010

Before a job interview you can usually guess what some of the questions will be: Why do you want to work here?, What are your strengths?, What are you weaknesses?, blah, blah, blah. Well, I used to find the one about weaknesses a challenge. I mean I didn’t want to reveal something that would make my prospective employer not want to hire me, but at the same time had to admit to something that was indeed a weakness. After much thought and discussion with friends and family, my token answer became: “I tend to procrastinate, but work well under pressure.” This always seemed a satisfactory response: a weakness, balanced by a strength.

In relation to my current situation, I find myself once again relying on this go-to phrase. Despite my good intentions and goal setting, packing just hasn’t made it to the top of my priority list as of yet. But really, how much stuff can I pack right now, anyway? We still need to live; it’s not like I can pack up the entire kitchen or anything. So yes, at this point I can (somewhat) easily rationalize my lack of motivation for packing. And can you blame me when I have so many other important things to attend to: my baby, my blog, my dog, hanging out with friends, reading, capturing my little man on video, etc.

So even though I’ve set a packing goal for myself (a few boxes a day), at this stage I find that procrastinating is so much more fun, especially when it involves documenting the life and times of Little Niko on video. (Plus, since I do work well under pressure, there’s always time for packing later, right?)

Note: I’ve written before about how chewing on wool is one of those things that sends shivers down my spine. I mean the way the wool just screeches along the teeth …blech! However, as seen in the video links above, this pet peeve of mine is not something that seems to bother Baby N.
