Right now, when it comes to study, I have all the drive of a crapped out, spluttering vehicle with a fried radiator and a fuel tank that’s down to empty.
It probably has something to do with being so close to the end. You know how sometimes you have that false sense of achievement, when you see the finish line, and you just want to throw in the towel and say, “isn’t that good enough? Haven’t I done enough yet?”
But every day, though it is a battle, I sit down and force myself to work a little more.
On the bright side, if I’m looking for even more procrastination activities, my guitar I ordered about six weeks ago should soon be arriving from America. As a leftie, it had to be ordered in. I decided on a Taylor GS Mini with a mahogany top. For anyone who doesn’t know, this is exciting because Taylor is one of the best guitar brands worldwide, but they have a very affordable price range and cater especially to left-handers without charging extra. The GS Mini is quite a bit smaller than your average guitar, but since I’m only looking for something to play around the house, and since my hands are so tiny, it suits me perfectly.
I’m still pretty novice, but I can’t wait to get practicing again. The clip below is from my time in the UK, in 2017, where I spent most of the year as a stable groom/babysitter. At that time, the guitar was my escape from daily life, and though I had a TV in my room, the reception was pretty sporadic. So, for nine whole months I didn’t watch a thing. Instead, I devoted myself to a variety of creative pursuits.
