“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” – Pablo Picasso
Procrastination has always been the bane of my existence.
It stresses me out, screws me over, and probably causes me to miss out on some opportunities. The worst part is that I bring it on myself, since procrastination is actively choosing to be passive.
On the other hand, I live for spontaneity and impulsive decision making. I’ve been chasing the rush of following last-minute whims for a couple of years now, and it really is a fantastic adventure. While having missed certain opportunities due to procrastination, I’ve tackled a ton of others in efforts to live in the moment. I guess it’s just a love-hate relationship with the stresses that come along with the lifestyle.
The current source of my unease is wondering about what to do next. I always have a lot of ideas about where I want to go and what I want to do along the way, but I have no concept of order or decisiveness. At this point, the feeling of perpetual uncertainty and general chaos has been permanently fused with my personality.
In the end, things usually tend to work out because where there’s a will, there’s a way.
In more presently relevant news, Squaw Valley FINALLY got a couple of real powder days! AND I got my first real feelings of vertigo while trying to snowboard/traverse to work a lift through white-out conditions and 85 mph wind gusts! Adrenaline and caffeine are my jam, yo.
Also, I hopped on the Instagram band wagon because everyone seems to have one these days — like me! I mean, follow me? Whatever.
