2 In writing challenge

november writing challenge | day 6 | habits


“If you could get rid of one of your habits, what would it be?”

Making a mess.  I’m sure my mum will 100% agree with this one! I seem to leave a trail of random stuff wherever I go.  Much as I’d like to be one of those neat freaks who never leaves anything out of place (although I do work better in a tidy environment), in reality I’m far from it haha.  ‘I’ll put it away later’ turns into ‘Ahh I’ll do it in the morning’, then in the morning ‘I haven’t got time now, I’ll do it tonight’ and the whole cycle continues, and the piles of miscellany around my room stay put.  Oh, the kind of crap we tell ourselves ey!  It’s actually quite entertaining when you think about the excuses/justifications we make up in our heads.  Not the most glamourous image, but in the spirit of reality.  So yeah, if I’ve ever given the impression that I’m super tidy and organised… I’m really not. 🙂  Normally I’m not that bad for putting things off, but I could definitely be better at keeping a tidy room!

I don’t know what I do that annoys others, but I annoy myself the most with my non-stop faffing.  Pretty much every lesson I’m the last one to be done packing up and leave, I waste time messing around with things on the internet, I just generally seem to take longer than necessary to do things.  If I could kick any habit, it’d be my general making a mess/wasting time/being a bit of an idiot.

What habit would you like to see the back of?

**(Oh and photo is a totally random #tbt to summer, because a) this cold is making me miss it and b) I don’t tend to take photos of the mess I leave around me.  Excuse the random.)**

So far I’m quite enjoying this writing challenge, and it’s satisfying to see my blog front page change more quickly than usual!  I know some topics have been a little more abstract than others, but variety is good ey?  Just seeing how I get on mixing it up a bit.  Blogging every day (twice on Wednesday!) I think is helping me write faster, which I seriously needed to get my head around anyway.  I’m definitely gonna try my best to keep it up, even if this weekend is both mine and my mum’s birthdays, I’m going out with friends and family, and working a few hours too.  I’ll manage 😀

Oh and bonfire night was a complete letdown… tickets had sold out before we even got there so my night amounted to a walk halfway up the road and back.  Fun times -.-

    Sorry to hear bonfire night was a bust. I didn’t do anything for it!

    I’m such a messy person too. There’s always stuff around me and my desk is just… a mess. I don’t know how to make myself tidier, I think it’s because I have that much stuff and not enough places to put it in!

      I should’ve gone earlier! Ah well, had a cosy night in instead.
      I don’t know how to make myself tidier either, I just have ‘stuff’ everywhere!
