Daily Prompt: Obstacle Course
Think of what you wanted to accomplish last week.Did you?What are the things that hold you back from doing everything you’d like to do?
I wasn’t able to work on a different theme, I could not make up my mind what would be the best, while I was thinking the time passed me by. I realized there are so many hours in a day,during these hours, I have prayers to take care of, cook food, eat , feed the felines, if there is a delay in their feeding time one of them looks me in the eye and tells me, I am forgetting my responsibility. He is very vocal about it.
The fact of the matter is there is only twenty-four hours in a day. I have to sneak in an hour for entertainment, during this time I watch two game shows,”Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy.”
When I subtract all the times for my extra-curricular activities from 24 hours, I’m left with two measly hours which for me is not enough for blogging 101.
Did I forget to mention I also need to sleep or my brain will shut down? Oh my online course completely slipped my mind, this also takes some thought to answer one question out of four. I wonder how I took care of so many things when I was in school.In fact I had to answer six out of ten questions in my final exams in four hours, back then I didn’t even use up all my hours, I was able to answer six questions without any problem.
It’s not the same now, you can give me a week I’ll still be dawdling. I think there are too many distractions these days, like my favorite tennis player Roger Federer is playing I have to watch seriously how he is playing, I say a little prayer for him to be successful,then there is my not so favorite one I try to jinx him so he loses and the field is open for my favorite player, who I hope would take advantage of the situation.
All these extra activities of mine takes away time I do not have. I end up not getting my assignment done. Come to think of it. It sure is an ‘Obstacle Course.’
