Report from Lazy-ville

Nothing much going on here in my world, hence the lack of posts. So, in an effort to supply at least one post a week, here is a little tidbit about me that you probably already picked up on:

I'm the laziest person on the planet.

While this natural tendency to find the easiest and fastest way to do things has often been a blessing, I've finally outsmarted myself. I no longer have anything to do at work. I've delegated and automated virtually every aspect of my job which, in turn, leaves me with scads of down-time wherein I attempt to look busy while actually surfing the web.

Want to know a secret? It's absolutely no fun at all. As a matter of fact, it's incredibly boring. Now I'm trying to find ways to alleviate the boredom without actually doing any more work.

Which probably explains why I was squealing around the college, in a golf cart, at full speed, reveling in the breeze blowing up my skirt earlier today... (Ah, freedom)

There is a plethora of reasons why I've reached a point in my life where I am actually afraid of responsibility - but the fact remains that this hurdle must be overcome. Today I took steps towards that end. I volunteered to manage a project. My heart is afraid, but it needs to grow up. Wish me luck!

Isn't being bored the worst feeling in the world? We had some downtime in June b/c my boss was travelling most of the month. It was nice at first, but after a while I couldn't stand it. And now I find it difficult to get back into the swing of things. Good luck on that project -- and good for you! It will help you feel productive again.

*sigh* I think I would be SO good at being rich, and doing nothing.

Good luck!

Oh, being bored is THE WORST. Good luck with the new project, and good for you for volunteering. Maybe you should offer to help automate job processes throughout your office to streamline operations? You could ask for a raise and a title promotion and become some sort of effeciency guru... :)
