When I was in college, I had a recurring fantasy… that by the first day of class, I would have all of the books needed. No issues with purchasing them, no issues with textbook supply.

It never happened. I always felt unready to start classes. Sometimes, I borrowed textbooks from the library. Sometimes I didn’t have a textbook at all. But I graduated anyway. As unready as I was.

Still, I want to ‘be prepared.’ I wait to write when ‘all of my research is done.’ I wait until I have taken ‘the right photo’ to publish on the blog. What I have done is developed is a very real stalling tactic. Procrastination rather than preparation became the mode of the day.

Important things remain undone in the name of preparation. Planning. Getting in the mood.

I am learning to relax, and just do it, whatever ‘it’ is. For the month of August, I am challenging myself to write in this blog daily. It doesn’t have to be perfect or fancy, but it must be consistent.

See you tomorrow!!!
