Wasting my time

Is it just me or does it not seem like life is filled with things that WASTE MY TIME? Traffic, pointless meetings, waiting in lines, the neverending stories of munchkins, etc. Ok so I understand I sound kind of bitchy. I'm really in a very good mood. I just hate wasted time. I mean I'm sure it would tell me somewhere how long the average American sits in traffic. I'm not even average because I work half a mile from my house (I do drive all over Atlanta weekly anyway so I come close to average). Just the sheer fact that someone could tell me that tidbit of information makes me think everyone is always wasting time.

But seriously, I like things to be efficient. What's so wrong with that? I love kids. I do not love hearing about mario cart while I am teaching Math. That is unless mario cart helps you memorize addition and subtraction facts in which case, I'll buy one for my classroom. I love to drive. I do not love the countless number of Atlantans who can't drive. There are so many and it's just a constant battle to get around them, away from them, past them, etc. Why can't everyone know where they're going? I mean, in this day and age you can even have a little voice implanted in your car telling you EXACTLY how to get there. Why can't you just get there???

So now that I have done my fair share of griping for the day, I would like to end on a high note. I am actually excited to go to the gym in the morning. I wish there was a pill you could take where that kind of motivation stuck around because I am fearful it may be short lived. Oh well! I'll take it for now :-)

  1. I know I'm wasting my breath, but please, Jana ... PLEASE try to accept the "empty spaces" (what you call wasted time) of your life as much as you accept the full spaces. You'll be much more content. Enjoy the music inside your car instead of cursing the idiots outside your car. You'll also live longer!!! I love you!
