Opsættelse ... Procrastination

Det er dårlig, det er forfærdelig, og det er dum, hvad enten du "gør" det på dansk eller på engelsk...Så hvorfor opsætter vi??!! Det jeg ved ikke...men denne uge, jeg er "FRU Opsættelse", eller måske jeg er engentlig dronningen af "Opsættelse Land" fordi i stedet for skriver denne blog, jeg bør skriver mine 35-40 sider på "Astetisk Uddannelse og hvorfor, ifølge filosof Maxine Greene, det må have sin plads i Amerikas skoler" hvilken er tilbørlig til min PhD bestyrelse om d. 31 august. Sædvanligvis elsker jeg at læser og skrive på ting ligesom hvilken er nær min hjerte, men min motivation at arbejde på det nu er ikke høj! Jeg forundre mig hvis det er fordi fodbold kampen imellem FC Midtjylland og Manchester City er i to timer?! Eller hvis jeg ønsker jeg var nedenunder, kigger mine "Gilmore Girls" DVDs? Desværre, hvis jeg planlægger at blive "Dr. Nørgaard" i DENNE LIVETID, jeg bedre slutter min opsættelse og begynder at skrive. Dr. Maxine Greene.....her jeg kommer......snart, jeg lover!


It is bad, it is awful, and it is stupid, no mattter if you "do" it in Danish or in English....So why do we procrastinate??!! I have no idea... but this week, I am "MRS Procrastination", or maybe I am actually the queen of "Procrastition Country" because instead of writing this blog, I ought to be writing my 35-40 pages on "Aesthetic Education and why, according to philosopher Maxine Greene, it must have a place in America´s schools" which are due to my PhD committee by August 31. Usually I love to read and write on things like this which are close to my heart, but my motivation to work on it now is not high! I wonder if it is because the soccer match between FC Midtjylland and Manchester City is in 2 hours? Or if I am wishing I was downstairs, watching my Gilmore Girls DVDs? Alas, if I plan to become "Dr. Nørgaard" in THIS LIFETIME, I better stop my procrastination and start writing. Dr. Maxine Green....here I come.....soon, I promise!

A question worthy of another thesis, surely! (But if you find the answer, let me know)

Paula said...

Its completely understandable! Look at how much you have achieved out here in Denmark! Its no wonder you are wiped out on a creative level. Be strong, get through it and then we can celebrate when you are out here this weekend. You got the grit to see this through, I have no doubt about it. You are one amazing lady Kelli Norgaard, and dont you forget it!

Same here! So don't feel like you're the only one :) I am practically kicking my own ass all the time to tell myself to get back on the thesis writing,

First of all, I'm contemplating the difficulties of posting everything in not one, but TWO languages. YIKES. Sometimes we just can't get moving....and besides deadlines are terrible things.

Now I'm off to search information on Dr. Maxine Green.

Pretty soon we can call you Dr. Kelli????

I'd like to stop procrastinating but I keep putting it off.

Why don't you just plagiarize like Joe Biden?

Oh...I am so addicted to Gilmore Girls right now. A friend loaned me season one and two and I can't stop watching it. I went out and bought seasons 3 and 4. I am so in love with Jess. He reminds me of Julien a bit...(sigh)...

I know you can do it! You've had a lot on your plate, but when you're focused you can accomplish anything. You're awesome, "Dr. Kelli" ! :-)

I'm the number 1 procrastinator. I always leave things at very last minute.

Just wanted to send you some encouragement. In no time like others have said we will be calling you "Dr. Kelli".
