Life in this training

April 11, 2009

Seated on a cushioned chair leaning against a pillow, I’m thinking about the myriad of things I should be doing: washing our clothes, learning Lusoga, and preparing for my final qualifying project.  Instead of doing any of these useful activities, I’m reveling in the satisfaction of finishing Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl–the one activity that would not help me in my presentation on Wednesday, or Language Proficiency Interview on Friday.  There isn’t another better procrastinator than I; I picked up Into the Wild and finished reading it.  I find it ironic that in the midst of no deadlines, I can never focus enough to finish a book in a few days, but when I’ve a pressing commitment, I find time to read a book.  Even though it isn’t as critical as the essay I had to write before I got my Montessori teaching certificate, I should really put these books away and work on the presentation.
