slacking off


Sometimes I think that if it weren't for doodling I would go crazy. It used to be a very helpful tool when I was in school, I could concentrate without actually having to concentrate, wait, that doesn't make sense. I could listen semi-attentively without loosing focus. It helped me focus. Well, now that I work at a job where I'm at a computer all day, I find that I doodle when I get creatively bored, or just bored in general. Which, in essence, is just being off task. I figure I spend a little too much time every day either doodling or blogging. On the one hand, this is very bad. Because that means that I am not working on work, but on the other hand, it is those little breaks throughout the day that make it possible for me to keep working, hour after hour, day after day, week after week. If it weren't for those doodles and blog moments, I would be really miserable. And, I think that exercising my creative mind in the doodle and blog way actually helps my work, which is the mildest and most generic form of creativity usually, (some people call it a style, I call it boring), and I can actually come up with something great that people will actually like. So, I guess what this all boils down to is that I'm just trying to justify my slacking off, but whatev. :)
