Whenever I'm having one of those unproductive, unmotivated days I have no where to go but up. After staring out my window for half of the morning I decided to CTC (or Cut The Crap as my friend Decha would say). I thought of all the things that motivate me. The first one mainly being, I'm unemployed and I really don't want to be bartending when I'm 30. The other that seems to be getting me lately is watching the profiles of all of the Winter Olympics athletes. They're all super young, driven, and have super human athletic abilities. So what's my excuse for sitting on my (growing) ass and staring out the window? Nothing! I downloaded some new music to listen to while I write (French classical- I've been obsessed lately) and got to work.
Around 6PM I was ready for dinner and decided to make a dish using a crockpot that my brother had bought me 5 years ago and I've never even taken it out of the box. I climbed up above the cabinets (no storage space here in NYC) to fetch the dusty box and give the crockpot a pre-rinse. I flipped through the yummy recipes, mouth watering as I read them until I got to the cook time; 4-6 hours. What the??? So, first attempt in 5 years with the crockpot was a bust. I mean, who plans dinner that far in advance???
Aside for that little snafu in my plans I was back on track and worked until I could barely keep my eyes open. I've got another jug of coffee in my hands and ready to meet my deadline before the weekend. Woot!
