No excuses, play like a champion

Unemployment does not suit me. Over the past two summers I have tried to embrace the "take advantage of being a teacher and having summers off and enjoy yourself" outlook, but I'm just bored. I am cranky, lazy, annoying, annoyed, needy, and just plain hungry. I have found this to be true when I go home to my parents in Virginia. There isn't much to do in Bum, VA, especially with dial-up internet and little to no cell phone reception. So what do we do, watch movies and eat food. Nowhere else do I spend SO much time staring into an open refrigerator. I have to stop and ask myself every time, "Are you actually hungry, or just plain bored and don't know what else to do?" I have slowly been accumulating some babysitting and tutoring sessions to fill some days, and I could definitely use the money with lots of weddings coming up (so if anyone in Raleigh has a job idea for me HOLLLLEERRRRR!). I've signed up for lots of teacher development workshops (before the budget for that gets completely cut), and school will be here before I know it, but I've been doing some thinking (scary, I know).

1) I should blog more: there is so much in this world that I do not take advantage of, and I have no excuse not to explore and do it up.
B) I should do all those things I keep saying I'm going to do (I know, real light bulb moment there, huh... geez).
a) Clean my freaking room: I brought a lot of stuff home from school, things I don't trust the custodians not to throw around when they clean (I love them, they do wonderful things, but they literally throw things around in the room and when I come back in the fall the room is a MESS with furniture knocked over). So I have a bunch of boxes just sitting in my room. Also, I got a 2nd roommate for the summer and had to clear out my stuff from the extra closet so that is literally sitting in a pile on the chair in my room and I have NO idea where it is supposed to go. I love old houses, but their severe lack of storage room is a real pain in my side.
2) Excercise: you have nothing else to do, lose the damn weight you've been talking about losing for 2 years now. I don't have money so it's not like I'm spending it on food, so go for a freaking run. Do all those stupid workout videos/dvds you have. For the love!

But I'll leave you with this little gem.... seriously, check it out... it's hilarious
