WotD #3 - Diminution

Ok, so it's been a long time since I've done this. Lately, I have had the awful feeling that I just have no desire to work anymore. Not as in my job but as in assignments for class. I distinctly remember having this feeling about 6 years ago when I was a senior in high school. Back then, I believe this was referred to as "Senioritis". That feeling went into recession a few years ago, but has come back with a force and is dominating my subconcious.

Oddly enough, the word of the day today is "Diminution". I thought this picture was perfect to describe my lack of desire to do those assignments. Just replace "Sales" with "Go-Get-Em" or something like that.

The duck could be my conscience yelling at me, shouting, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING? YOU'RE ALMOST THERE! QUIT SLACKIN' OFF!!!" If the duck is my conscience, then I might be the mouse looking down into the hole thinking, "Wow, I didn't think it had dropped THAT far".

Let me level with you. I am still working and trying hard. It's just become increasingly difficult to care about it. Perhaps I suffer more from complacency than anything else. Doesn't everybody go through that stage though? Thankfully this is just showing its face, so if I can stave it off long enough then I just might be able to ride the holidays out until the summer break gets here.

Here's to hoping summer gets here before too long!

  1. You can do it SCOTT!!! It really isn't that much longer. Let us know if you need "a getaway" to SLC for a weekend or something.
