Day 25 – Scratch that!

Like most of these posts, I’ve once again left this until the last moment to do, and therefore are scrambling for ideas and frantically typing away to meet the word count.

I have had plenty of ideas, but everytime I start typing, I have “Scratched it” by deleting the whole thing and starting over… super annoying now that I now have less time and nothing done instead of an unfinished post, but alas here we are.

Since I really can’t think of something, here is a short bullet list of the ideas I have scratched out so far:

  • The daily prompt: Tether – Was going to write about the “Tethers of my world” but it was extremely uninspired and dull. Basically a rehash of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs
  • Finishing the Snacks post – I barely have time to type up this one! Ain’t nobody got time to finish that incredibly long post and find pics etc
  • Quick fire questions – I feel its too soon since the last one… Probably an irrational fear but hey, most my life is full of them, why stop now?
  • My Ultimate book recommendation list – In short, the 5 books I would recommend to anyone I would ever meet. Still might do this in the future, but adjusting it right now, adding some books, taking some off etc.
  • IB-isms – Aka. “Things IB Alumni do”. Most fitting since the IB scores just came out, but I am running out of time, and only had 2 or 3 really good ones off the top of my head
  • Infographic – Work in process, saving til day 30 😛

I should mention that with all of these, I had started typing the post out before getting rid of them… why do I do this to myself -.-”’

I sometimes do this in exam essays, which basically means I end up shooting myself in the foot by wasting time on something that I just scratch out in the end, meaning that the the frantically written thing I end up submitting usually is poorer quality than had I just left the original one XP

So yeah, instead of a decent post, you got all of the could have been’s.

Sorry about that, hopefully something more inspired will show up soon!

Basically this is me right now:

Except my problem is the doing bit that requires the panic, not the ideas bit.

Well, that was a bit of an odd post.

See you later!
