There’s a word for those who have it worse…
A friend sent me this info… today… on the day it was posted at Wordsmith.org.
verb tr. : To put off until the day after tomorrow.
verb intr.: To stay at a college for an extended time.
(Personally, I like that the day after tomorrow and being at college too long are somehow related!)
I’d like to think that this is not necessarily a bad thing… the putting off part, not the college part. If I just don’t get around to something to day for some “whatever” reason, then I feel like a slug.
HOWEVER, if I decide that I can’t do it today, and tomorrow won’t work either, then I can perendinate on purpose. I can give myself a slight break from feeling guilty for putting the thing off and make a real plan to do it the day after.
The trick is to actually pat myself on the back for making the decision and then doing the thing.
We can hope, right?
