Unfinished Business

  1. Have you ever had something you really wanted to do, but try as you might, just couldn't finish it?

    For me, it's not being able to play all the way through "Rhapsody In Blue". I get so far, and then choke at the same place (I can just hear George Gershwin rolling in his coffin).

    What's your nemesis?

    I have a really short attention span. Every single chore that I have is just about half way done before I move on to something new.

    I can't seem to get film developed, but maybe it's more procrastination!

    No matter how hard I try, I just can't finish War and Peace.

    Okay, I'm totally lying. I've never even tried to read War and Peace.

    I'm very restless. Can't sit still for long. It is like I have ants in my pants. When I sit down for break, I tend to want to get back to work if I am not occupied during break. ( sounds crazy I know). Or if I get bored, I have to go for a walk or something.

    How strange Heather. I suffer from this too. I bounce around at home here starting one project and then moving on to another before I completed the first one. Drives my hubby nuts....(it is part of a plan.....)

    I rarely have the patience to read a book all the way through. I'll get bored about halfway through and just skip to the last chapter to see how it ended. If it wasn't that interesting to me in the first place, I'll just move on to another book.

    Maybe you should just start in the middle and then read to the end.

    Yes. I've got three books halfway or nearly halfway read right now, and I just started another that sounds good Eventually I'm going to have to reread them all and finish them.
