Vile procrastination and the evil leech of lack of motivation

I have come to the conclusion that I just cannot sustain a blog. Look at this one! Look at my other ones! Maybe every half a year I'll get the itch to make a post, only to then abandon it for the next 4 months. It never works!

Of course it's because I'm lazy as a cat on a cozy Sunday afternoon. Well, then again, maybe I just don't have much to say.

I will say this though, I think I'm finally come to grips with the reality of my limited potential for academic success. I think I'm going to forget about the PhD and the lofty ambitions of a Professorship complete with tweed jacket and large square glasses. I should just realise that that dream is no more attainable than my other dream of being able to fly and live with it. The time where encouraging words wield magic and replenish the spirit is past. I'm too old to believe in compliments and too callous to let them affect me.

Suddenly I have the urge to go listen to Michael Buble's Christmas CD.
