As the extended weekend is quickly approaching I am realizing how much I must get done during this period of time before the semester ends. I planned on stating on my workload this weekend but ended up getting distracted. Friday and Saturday I decided to go shopping with my roommates rather than do any thing that will benefit me in any way. Saturday my roommate and I decided to buy some goldfish. There was really no reason behind this whimsical purchase. We just felt like they needed to be saved from Meijers I suppose. The new fish have managed to distract my roommate all morning. She has never had pets before and therefore is paying undivided attention to them. Last night she actually came into my room and asked if it was okay to turn off all the lights in the living room or if the fish wanted some lights on. Today she has already tried feeding them four times because “they look hungry”. Distractions. For my roommate the distractions are the fish. For me it is anything and generally everything besides for homework. I have tried going to the library or even to the stacks and not brining my computer but I always manage to find something. Like the witty writings all over the stacks. I am just wondering if anybody else has odd distractions and how they deal with them.
