I’m not going to lie. I’m lazy, and I don’t want to finish any of my projects on my list. Who am I really kidding anyway? The new year is a little over a month away, and I still have six projects to complete. Really? If I work myself into a frenzy and start stressing out, I could probably finish 2010 New Year’s resolution. And if I was really honest with myself, I would probably do a half ass job on everything to just complete the list. And I hate putting less effort when I know I can do better.
If I think about the remaining projects for a moment, I probably could complete them all. MAYBE. Project 2: patchwork quilt for my friend, “May.” The project could be complete in one day as the top is complete and I would just need to whip up a backing. Buy some batting, sew everything together, and completion! I think that could be accomplished in one day.
Thanks to a nearby Walgreens, I could probably complete Project 6: Complete wedding albums in one day as well. I just have to organize the photos and make some prints. Plus, going through my wedding day photos will probably put me in a good mood as my wedding day was a great day. And if I really had determination and motivation, I could probably complete Project 8: Make “easy” cross body purse in one day, too. Maybe. I have plenty of fabric — I just need to sit down at my sewing machine and get started.
I’m a perfectionist when it comes to writing. Some writers just write whatever is on their minds and then edit later. I write what’s on my mind, think about what I wrote, and then edit the section or paragraph (or move on to the next paragraph or section). I could probably easily crank out three chapters for Project 11: Write three new chapters in “A Thousand Yellow Daisies” and Project 12: “Lost in Beethoven,” but I think the writing could be crap. Or maybe the greatest thing ever written. Being a realist, I’m leaning toward the first option. When I’m writing, I want to do a good job. I don’t want to half ass anything.
Honestly, Project 13: Hang at least three frames in the apartment should take me about an hour with Charlie’s help. Not even an hour as I have already hung up one frame. How long would it take me to hang two more frames in the apartment? Crap. When I look at the list and when everything is said and done, I could probably complete all the projects by the end of the year. MAYBE. But I doubt it because I’m lazy. 🙂 Besides, if I didn’t complete these projects, what would I work on in 2011?
