Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish
This week is freebie week and I honestly had no idea what to do. Most topics are already on the planned/ have already been done list and I felt like I needed to do something unique, something I could write about from personal experience (nothing too deep where is this all coming from...?)
I decided to go with a topic near and dear to my heart, something I can all too easily admit to doing: Procrastinating.
Well, something that has to do with procrastination.
Top Ten Reasons Why I May Avoid Reading at Any Given Time
(I'm looking at you Tumblr)
I think we've all been down that hole where you're just casually browsing the internet and then it turns into browsing Tumblr and then you get lost in the aesthetic-ness of other people's lives.
Me: "What do you mean I'm not avoiding books! I'm so invested in books that I've been looking at pictures of them for a whole 5 hours now!"
2. Too ominous looking
I often find myself being intimidated at the thought of reading. It may sound ridiculous but when I have to do a thousand other things in the course of a few hours the last thing on my mind is forcing myself to read.
We're all very familiar with Netflix aka the destroyer of my life. You may find yourself watching a show.
"I'll only watch an episode," you say.
2 days later....
4. ... but wait what about...
Basically: Procrastination plain and simple. I'll tell myself I need to do something more important when in reality... I don't.
5. School (aka 7 1/2 hours of torture)
Everything about school is stressful for me. I try to avoid doing the HW for as long as humanly possible... but then later decide I make horrible life decisions and I probably should have started the work before, I don't know, 9 PM. I struggle with this on the daily and it kind of sucks... a lot. Reading just becomes a chore after I've spent time on an assignment.
6. The apocalypse is upon us
What? Maybe it could happen...
I want to talk to all the other book peoples but then I forget how hard it is to talk to book people about books if I haven't read any books lately. Wow that's a lot of books.
I've been OBSESSED finding fantasy related pins to add to my WIP. (Okay there is no WIP but maybe in the future.) I'll also admit that I spent hours making a 12-picture Blackhearts pin board. But you know what... worth it.
Surprise! I only have 8 on the list today.
(this is a good thing... I think.)
Do you procrastinate when it comes to reading?
Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!
