I finally have a breather at work, so I’ve once again started working on going back to school.
There are way too many opportunities for my penchant for procrastination to kick in in this process. So much bloody paper work to fill out… I have to provide my employer with a full program of courses, beginning to degree, in order to get assistance. Among other things. God it’s hard to make myself buckle down and do shit like that.
I know that this is vital, and the clock is ticking. But I have so much internal resistance to the process that has solidified over the years. I hate bureaocracy. Paperwork is for other people. I get things done, I don’t push papers around. There are few things I hate more than being made to feel like like a schoolboy who has to do his lessons just so in order to pass. I want to make my arrangements with a conversation and a handshake, like civilized human beings do. Let the tedious administrative details be filled in by people who dig that sort of thing.
This is one of the few reasons I’d ever want to be really rich – so that I wouldn’t have to be bothered by trivialities.
