It's the middle of the day, and I'm still sitting in my own funk. Didn't have time for a shower this morning--had to fit in a workout though (because yesterday it never happened). I also had to get the recycling out because it's picked up every other week, and frankly, more than two weeks of newspaper piling up in our kitchen would be bad.
After my workout, it was time to go straight to work, because I had a client discussion this morning. Granted, my office is eight feet away from the fitness studio portion of my gym, so I'm not offending anyone. It's just that a few hours into work, I realize I really kind of stink.
Such is the life of a freelancer--in case you ever wondered. That whole "work in pajamas" concept is nice until it's noon, and you're still in pajamas, and you're starting to feel the grime build up. For me, I start to get sloppy and acquire bad habits (I'm staring at the jar of peaches I polished off today--eaten straight from the jar, of course), and from there it feels like I'm on a slippery slope to schlubbiness. That's definitely not the polished, witty writer I want to be.
So it's time to shower out. And it's time to make yet another resolution about showering before noon.
Do you have any bad work habits you've acquired?
