Time and time again I make plans only to have something better come along and make me feel horrible for making them in the first place. Almost every time I make plans, something else HAS to occur at the same time on the very same day. Why on earth cant things happen when I have absolutely nothing to do huh? All the fun and exciting stuff just sits back and waits until some requirement comes along and then WHAM! it pops out in front of me, taunting me and telling me how fun it is and wonderful and "It's too bad you have that important thing to do because we could have so much fun together." Then, say some miracle happens and I somehow get out of the important thing, all of a sudden, the fun and exciting other thing gets cancelled too. Or how about when the one thing you missed ends up being the best fun thing ever and "Oh My Gosh I can't believe you missed it!!!
I'm pretty sure plans and I don't get along. They're only really made to show people how much of a failure they are when it doesn't work out. How much they aren't fun anymore because they have important stuff to do instead. That`s why, beginning today, I'm going to stop making big plans until the last possible second (if I can) I'm just going to go with the flow (for the most part) and I'm going to show plans who's the boss.
Am I going to blog during this class? I'm not sure. Stay tuned and find out.
Am I going to set dates for doing homework and dates for reading and writing? Nope! Probably Not. All I'm going to do is make sure I meet the hard class deadlines for assignments.
Now that I think about it though, I cant really stop making plans. Ultimately, what I'm doing right now is making plans not to make plans. That sucks. I think the real problem with plans is, no matter how much you don't want to make them or follow through or whatever, you can't help but make them.
What do you think? What are your experiences with making plans? Please tell me I'm not alone!
