Procrastination Station

Hi and welcome to procrastination station. That is what I will call this blog because I could be doing about 47039876 other things but choose not to. I am sure you understand because if you weren't procrastinating you wouldn't be reading my blog. So - we're even.
I was doodling on my reality notebook of bills to pay and decided I wanted to escape into the blog-o-sphere for a bit since I miss you all so dearly! During my daydreaming that had nothing to do with plumbers, utility bills, laundry, barking dogs, commercial loan applications, meetings, or the fact I need to lose 100lbs.....
I was thinking about school - high school and college and what a freaking life my friends and I led - our most nerve wracking times were OMG! Did he really just wink at me or did he have something in his eye? or - I saw Richard driving through town in his awesome decked out truck and he me! He probably wants to have like a thousand of my babies. or - Mary thinks that I said her outfit was oh so awful - if I'd have thought that I'd have said it to her face...stupid beotch, we are so in a fight. Those were the days when money seemingly grew on trees and was there when we needed it and if it wasn't then we figured out ways to still have fun and hang out and become the ever so dreaded beer bums at parties.
I now give you this opportunity to list the things you miss most about la la land - take the time to reminisce - it does the mind, body and soul really good. I think it's actually therapeutic to think about the good ol' days and how they got you where you are today.....Talk amongst yourselves (via my comment link). It's not like you have anything better to do - we are all procrastinating right?

You hit the nail on the head. I am absolutely procrastinating. And right about now, without deep thought, I think what I miss most about my la-la days is a) sleep and b) the unrealized smallness of my daily concerns back then. and the summers off. even if you were working you still had more free time. can't we have summers off again?

Summers off were the best. There were times when I had weeks ahead of me with absolutely nothing planned and no responsibilities. Back then, I thought it was hell (OMG I am soooo boooored!). But now, what wouldn't I give to have even a DAY without responsibilities!? No dinner to cook or laundry to wash... nice. I am procrastinating now because I need to wash some panties.

In high school basically every weekend my girlfriends and I would make rotel dip and brownies, then gossip and read Cosmo into the wee hours. I miss that! No feeling guilty about not eating my vegetables.

Lisa summed up everything I was thinking too! I miss the days back in college when I would have nothing to do for says during the summer (even that one glorious semster where I only had TTH classes). I miss being able to stay up to the wee hours in the morning and not feel tired. Now, I can't even stay up past 11 half the time.

Back in high school, I would stay up all night reading books during the summer. Now it's hard for me to get a chapter read in bed before going to sleep.

Sigh. I miss those days!
