Why is it when ever I absolutely need to focus my energies and be single minded about something, I get more distracted than ever? For example, i *need* to be working on these new painting every free minute of the day but suddenly I have found myself obessesed with music, finding new songs online, learning new chord progressions on my guitar. I hadn't seriously practiced the thing for over a month and then tonight, I couldn't put it down.
Nothing seems to be going right lately. I wasted two hours trying to donate blood only to have the nurse wreck havoc on both arms without being able to draw any blood. So now I have these two huge bruises on each arm and both of them ache like holy hell and yet I don't even get the smug satisfaction of having done something good for humanity.
Speaking of which, I ran across this excellent cartoon Cat and Girl; this particular issue (Cat and Girl Do Good), and particularly the last cell, is exactly how I feel most of the time these days.
