It all looks very productive and I could almost fool myself that I'm having a perfectly normal day, but I'll tell you what I'm really doing -- I'm avoiding two things: exercise, and starting revisions on TA. Every five minutes, I'll stop being distracted by what I'm occupying myself with, and feel guilty for the avoidance behavior. I know what I ought to do. I should turn off the tv, put on an exercise DVD, and work out. And after that, I should sit down and start the revision. But no, no, no. It just doesn't happen. The tv keeps going, the pages of The Namesake keep turning, and I get more and more annoyed with myself. Argh.
It's particularly annoying because at the exact same time that I resist doing my work, I know that once I start doing the work, I'll be perfectly content doing it -- much happier than I am now, in fact. And I still can't seem to make myself start it.
Inertia is the true enemy.
