The Humble Art of Procrastination

It's time consuming, circumventive and in many ways it's productive. Productive because you spend all your time avoiding the task at hand by being industrious in other areas. The only thing is these areas are the one's that don't require productivity in the grand scheme of duties that need attending to. Have I lost you, or have I made you think back to a time when blogging has saved your mental state but concequentially left your To Do list even longer?

The very reason I'm writing this post is to avoid doing other things like semiotically analyse a Vogue Italia editorial for my contemproary fashion class. My eyes can't help but wonder from the fuzz of my analysis up to my inviting Blogger quick-link. The thirst for me to post needed to be quenched so I figured what better way to satisfy my needs than to show you all how much of an unkempt slob I look like when I blog (read: okay, okay that's an exaggeration - but it can get pretty weird over here at Fashion Falsehood HQ).

I always have these conjured up images of the girls behind blogs like Fashiontoast and LeFashion looking positively preen and glamorous doing up their posts while the rest of us hide behind our desks looking less than aesthetically pleasing.

What are you usually wearing when blogging? Usually for me it's a tattered tee shirt and underwear but given the fact that I actually had to leave the house today compelled me to cover up appropriately.

i know what you mean!
but i read this quote before that always strikes true for me: "procrastination is the road to failure".
i think about that sometimes when i'm lazy and procrastinating for fashion class work.

analyzing vogue italia isn't that bad... i'd do that any day :)

also, you are not 'an unkempt slob' (lol) - you're gorgeous! i love the floral top and the artwork on your wall.

i don't think like that about people blogging b/c people are people. i just think about the post and plus, these days almost everyone has a pic of them up somewhere (on their blog, on their myspace, etc).

well i hope you do well on your paper/analysis. x.

I think I look ridiculous when I blog. It's typically late in the evening and I've already showered and put on PJ's.

I don't have the Internet in my apartment. It would just be one more bill I can't afford. I go to my parent's house to use the computer, so I am always fully-clothed. But if I had the Internet at my place, I would definitely blog naked!

FINE. You caught me looking all but glamorous in my brothers tee, tights, and some weird nerd 3-D glasses...
But I get what you're saying about blogging *wasting* your time. Many a time have I put off an assignment because the blogshpere was calling for me, or something else should be done. Usually it is cleaning.

Xo, Yc.

i hope you can see what i was referring to in our blog discussion the other night? i also believe you will make a great mother as far as wiping food off faces goes. i can't believe that even happened, the shame.
