My unproductive Best

26 Nov

I know I’ve been quite irregular at blogging. Looks like it’s becoming more of a habit. Nonetheless, I must admit I had been slightly busy these past few days. Many things have happened and I’m sure I’ll be blogging about them all, sooner or later. BUT today is a day that’ll go down in (my) history as the day I’ve been my unproductive best. I’ve done nothing but lazed around the house. I was so darn lazy I didn’t even have the energy to turn on the TV (one can at times be quite productive while just watching it).

The reason: Last night, I went out with some of my friends and came back past midnight. Everyone but me was smashed…. oh, but I’m a teetotaler. Having everyone around you sloshed and smashed makes you a part of that smash, and so I woke up with the worst hangover, worse than the “Hangover 3”.


Thus, this post is my small attempt at redemption. Days when I’m least, LEAST productive I have decided to do something I’m good at. Ergo all day, having said that I’d lazed around, I was actually thinking – thinking as to what I really really like to do when I’m doing nothing.

I’ve come up with 5 things I like to do when I’m not doing anything….. Drumroll)))))))))))))))

I like to dare my notebook’s screen for a staring-competition. Yes, I can stare at it forever especially if it’s a new word document or many a times it’s been the “new post” page.

I like to lie down and dream with my eyes wide open. Well one could call it daydreaming. In such reveries, I’m always receiving some kind of AHEM awards. My acceptance speech starts smoothly until I get to the part of the award category. My bubble bursts…

If I’m not quite alone, I like listening to people around me. O yes, I’m a very good listener. I love listening to people and I think it’s the easier part (compared to speaking) until of course when the speaker tries to elicit some verbal response.

I’m super good at playing minesweeper. My best time in the beginner is 1 second, ONE BLOODY SECOND. \m/ I’m soooooo very good at it, I sometimes stay up all night sweeping those mines.

NOTHING…. just like today.

Btw, if my idea of being productive is as mentioned above……
