I will be SO happy after the Election is done (for the next bit). I really don't care who wins, what party "comes out ahead" or anything else. I'm so SICK of political ads. I'm so sick of hearing nothing new AT ALL. I'm tired of hearing "total reversals" on the exact same issues - and both parties seeming to have flip flopped.

"Don't vote mad!" from the party that made that a battle cry for years, and doesn't like it being turned on themselves.

I think that was the one that had me grabbing the bridge of my nose and just squeezing.

Sick of it all. It doesn't REALLY matter who ends up in office. I mean really. I've seen so little "real change" over the last decade that wasn't predictable (I know - I'm not toeing the popular line that advances in personal liberties are totally a revolution, a victory over the Establishment .. blah blah blah).

Of course, I'm also sick, tired and dealing with crap in "RL" that has me to the point that I tend not to see outside of what is personally in my face.

So .. yeah. I can't WAIT until I don't have to listen to another friggin Political ad. Well, for a year or so.

Maybe I should just go Luddite.

Anyone Type A personalities out there also "Procrastinators"? Any books/methods you've used to successfully assist yourselves in "resetting" your behaviors to the ones that you KNOW are better for you? I'd be very interested in it.

Being a perpetual procrastinator does nothing to assist in attempting to get over things like ... procrastination. It isn't helped by the fact that I AM overstressed, overworked - and do not do enough activities / hobbies that are things I enjoy doing. But that is because I'm stuck in a vicious cycle of Stress/work - De-stress - back to work.

Its not that work is just Work. I have found that I approach many things in my life in the same fashion - I ENJOY "over working my brain". Most of my Hobbies, pleasures in life etc. involve DEEP mind involvement, troubleshooting and concentration - to the point that I end up burned out and "vegging out" as in doing an almost complete shutdown and end up staring at Movies/TV/stupid internet sites - not that I'm SO into either of these things that I HAVE to do it, or even being up there as one of my "favorite" uses of my time vs. least stressful / I don't have to think/engage etc.

So I'm free to jump back into things and over do it again until I'm almost incapable of functioning.

Its easier for me to see these things when I CAN blame it on Work - easy to see the over extension when you're putting in 70+ hour weeks, phone calls at 2 am etc. But it isn't JUST when I'm working like that. And I HATE sleeping. But, I've lost productivity as I have aged with my late nights - so I'm just staying up "accomplishing nothing".

Well balls. There is yet another whining boring post.
