As I wrote this post I am sitting in Brock Hall, watching a CBC production of Shakespeare's comedy The Taming of The Shrew. It's really quite funny, but I'm having a problem. I'm just sitting here!
I don't do very well at just sitting. It's the Bolton in me that keeps me from just sitting still. All the Boltons that I know (or know about) never were good at sitting.
Part of my issue is that I've got a lot of things to do today. I went to work this morning (and managed to accomplish little) and am now feeling cooped up when I have homework that needs to be done. I need to read for Christian Beliefs, send the final for program for Evensong, make my final edits for the program, write several scripts, and many other things.
Dr. French (my Developmental Psychology teacher) was reading to us from Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and he read something that took away a lot of joy. He said that there will always be something on our to-do lists. There will always be something that needs to be done.
[I need to pause because I thought of something I need to add to my to-do list]
One wouldn't think that it would be too hard to cross things off a to-do list. The majority of things would take but minutes. Of course some would take hours, but it shouldn't be that hard to accomplish things from my list.
Am I just a procrastinator? Am I just too busy? I don't think I do that much extra. Just worship committee and teaching computers. That's not unreasonable.
I don't dare ask for an extra hour in the day. I would end up with that filled, too! But I don't think I'd be the only one to fill it!
I'm a Classical musician, a growing Christian, and a world traveler. I'm learning, exploring, and trying to understand this wonderful world I live in.
