I am way too modest for CV creation to come naturally to me. No, seriously, I am the most modest person going. Out of all of the modest people out there, I am the best. (Hmmm... wonder if I could make that in to a bullet point in my Personal Profile?)
The pain of creating this amazing CV (which will only have to be chopped and changed and buggered about with anyway, so I am not sure exactly why I am giving myself such a hernia over this) has grown so huge that it is remarkable how many other "important" things I am finding to do with my time.
Even on the best day, I am a mental butterfly, lightly landing on a task for, oh, about five minutes before being distracted by the next brightly coloured or shiny thing. My boredom threshold even for the things I love to do is very low. I feel pity for my past boyfriends, who had to deal with 'oh, you're still horny? I am ready for a nice cup of tea' only five minutes after removing our clothes. Or maybe I exaggerate. Perhaps it was ten minutes.
With the absence of a boyfriend, sex is off the list as a distraction, and I find myself taking the art of procrastination to its most mundane level.
- Get up, make cup of coffee.
- Make another cup of coffee.
- Morning meditation.
- Third cup of coffee.
- Get dressed.
- Read email - pick out the emails to respond to later, after creating CV.
- Open CV document.
- Decide to respond to emails now, rather than later. I mean, who knows how long this is going to take?
- Remember to put washing on. Return to laptop.
- Remember to take chicken out of the freezer. Return to laptop.
- Check email again. Oh look, I can respond to this one really quickly. Oh, and this one has a really interesting article.
- Look at CV. Hear stomach rumble. Eat banana and make a cup of tea.
- Decide to quickly check blogs whilst finishing cup of tea.
- Empty washing machine and take time to remove as many creases as possible when placing clothes on dryer.
- Remember that I want to order some books on Amazon, have a very quick search.
- Follow links from recommended titles and end up taking 2 full lessons on how to speak Hebrew. Feel proud that I stopped at 2 lessons, when 4 were free.
- Return to CV, write a couple of lines. Get stuck.
- Check email, just in case. Find another couple of interesting articles.
- Decide to have a break from the computer, back is getting stiff and hand turning in to claw.
- Make another cup of tea. Have brainwave on how to deal with CV format. Promise to instantly return after cup of tea and put changes in place after lunch.
- And after checking email..
- And after checking for updated blogs...
This too, will pass. Just one more check of email...
