What's with the hibernation

I am trying to resolve this serious problem of mine:It’s one of my many weaknesses. I get easily distracted especially when I cannot find my way with something I’m working on. I make a turn, I get lost and then focus be damned.

It comes in the form of movies. I swore last Saturday to layoff flicks for a while and so far I’m succeeding. The likes of Eternal Summer, Testosterone (Antonio Sabato, Jr. playing gay?), Love of Siam, Bilog and Oro, Plata, Mata are comfortably stored on my hard disk unwatched.

It comes in the form of books. I recently acquired audio books of the Twilight series that many people have been raging about and other books like the Man Booker Prize Winner in 2002, Life of Pi. So far I haven’t started on either.

It comes in the form of computer games. Not the ones kids play for they all sound Greek to one as ancient as I am. I’m speaking more of Hearts, Free Cell, Literati and Bookworm.

It also comes in the form of blogging. (Evil laugh in the background). Thus the recent neglect of this blog or visiting most of the blogs I usually read.

So no, I am not sick. I am not gone. I am just trying to see how far I can go before I give in to temptations … er, distractions.

Since I'm posting this now and I watched Hellboy 2 this morning,I obviously lasted only a week. Pathetic.

(PS: I did not include men and friends. They are not distractions. They are life support systems.)

mag yoga ka kaya. it will help you focus.....and while you're at this stage of trying to get rid of distractions..you can give me all the books (except for the life of pi which i've read already), computer games and movies.

go, give them na, now na.

okay lang naman namadistract once in awhile basta hwag lang sosobra. kase nga sabi nila, something in larger amounts is good for as long as it benefits you pero pag alam mong nakakasira na, then ichapwera na. chak! :)

ei, but seriously echo, yakang-yaka mo naman yang mga distractions na yan.

di ba getting easily distracted is a symptom of melancholy that is often caused by the lack of sex? chos!

ate AA, try mo mag breathing exercise for 5minutes or more. then make a random checklist sa mga gusto mong tapusin. no deadline required as long as may goal ka na tapusin into. maybe it will help u focus.

'wag lang sa harap ng camera mag focus, talo na tayo ni Ate Girard. hihi

puede din ba ako kumanta? =p

jericho said...

To all: lalo akong nawawalan ng focus sa comments nyo .. charot! ;)
