Another example of #procrastination @Simona #AvoidingDrZ 😉

Simona 😂 I didn't mean to take part in the reading challenges next year, but suddenly I feel the urgency to plan for them … I guess that this is another way for procrastination. 13mo
Cinfhen Yup!!! I spent hours doing that!!! @Simona (edited) 13mo

#LMPBC @Bookwormjillk @DanaManiac @Tattooedteacher I finished this over a month ago and am just now posting and mailing back to Christine #procrastination I thought this was the most enjoyable book of our group. Historical fiction with a thriller feel. 3/5⭐️s

Bookwormjillk It was my favorite from this round too. 1y

So, I really should be unpacking those two huge duffles but no, I‘m scouring my shelves looking for books that will work for #ReadingAsia2021 😜 and yes, it‘s 2:45am 🤪
I had no idea there were SO MANY COUNTRIES in Asia 😱#LiveAndLearn

"Failure of the ability to listen to ourselves is most likely the main reason why we put things off." Must read and repeated until procrastination become a history

@julesG For the record. 😉

Buechersuechtling @julesG 😊🤷🏽‍♀️😇 2y
Buechersuechtling @julesG But wait a moment, that blog, you‘re keeping, is it new❓I haven‘t noticed it before – which has nothing to say – that‘s why I‘m asking … 2y
julesG It's been public since April/May. 2y

Littens‼️

If at the moment, I‘m not doing what I have assigned myself according to my To-Do-list but did something different instead, which also is kind of important and needs to be done, that isn‘t “procrastinating”, is it❓😉

By the way, read this book some years ago and liked it. Felt eye-opening back then. I think, I could do with a re-read, since, according to my memory, it has a strong self-care dimension.

julesG I bought this book when I started writing my second MA thesis. It's probably time to dig it up again. 2y
Moony Ohhh yes a re-rwad would be good 😂 2y
Buechersuechtling @julesG Are you ready for a confession❓Your “second MA-thesis”⁉️ This brings back to my mind, why, until today I am still not following you. You‘re huge amount of Litfluence kind of intimidates me. And as it seems, right I was. 😉 What kind of person are you, when you‘re having 2 MA-degrees❓😯 I mean, congratulations, very well done 👏🏼 , that‘s not my point. Definitely not. But excuse me I need to retreat to my corner labelled “quite average”. 2y

julesG Ha ha ha! Yes, I'm the big bad wolf. 🐺😁. No, actually I only have one MA degree. I wrote my first thesis while pregnant with my firstborn. But when I wanted to hand in my thesis, my Prof had left the university and NO ONE felt responsible to pick up the thesis, read it, grade it, give me my MA. So I first had my son, then took care of him for 3 years, then went back to Uni, to find a new Prof. New Prof didn't want to grade the first thesis, so 2y
julesG I had to write a new one. With a then 3 year old running around me, three teaching jobs to keep food on the table, a chronic illness which had flared up a few times. I was so not in the mood for writing another 60-80 pages, let alone the research that had to go into it. And, on top of it all I needed another exceptional permission to write my thesis in English - I had studied English (Anglistik). 🙄🙄🙄 2y
julesG My Litfluence is due to the daily photo challenges we used to have back in the day. If you're taking part in three different ones for two years, you get a lot of ❤️ 😉😉😉 I've actually stopped looking at it. It's absolutely not important to me. 2y
julesG I don't consider myself better than anyone. I'm quite average too. Don't feel intimidated, please. 2y
Buechersuechtling @julesG Okay, now with all that explanation of course I see, that you‘re Bart Simpson – saying: an underperformer. 🤣 I mean, what you successfully reached still is quite impressive. You remain an organisational talent in my eyes, but when it comes to all the rest, I do admit that I‘m not firmly convinced anymore that you‘re chairwoman of “Mensa”. 😉 2y
Buechersuechtling @julesG But it all sounds very debilitating. You must be _very_glad_ it‘s over. (Which it is, isn‘t it❓) If I were you, I would. 2y
julesG @Buechersuechtling Ha! Definitely more Bart than Lisa! Mensa! No! Heavens! I know quite a lot of people who are members. But I always felt very much intimidated by them so I've never dared to even find out how to apply. Studying has been over for ages. Picked up my MA certificate in September 2009, pregnant with kid #2. Guess what, I'm only 10 years away from going back to uni on the cheap "studying over 50" rates ??? 2y

Join @Andrew65 for a series readathon next month. #ProgressItNovember

This is very similar to the #GoodReads Finish What You Started challenge that I do every month. In November I plan on working on The Coffee House Mysteries by Cleo Coyle and hopefully finishing off a couple other series with one book left in them.

Andrew65 Thanks for reposting. 😍 2y
Roary47 I‘ve read the first 3 of the Coffee House Mysteries. I‘ve enjoyed them so far. Hope you enjoy! 😊 2y
