I'm feeling a bit like a naughty schoolgirl today. I should be spending the day working on TMAs for the two OU courses that I am currently doing, but I am going to play truant. I did some work yesterday, but today I feel that I need to spend time on myself.
I still have just over a week to get the three TMAs completed so it isn't exactly imperative that I work on them today, but the sooner I get them completed the better. Yet, today I have woken up and decided that I shall have a lie in, just because I can, and that I shall have a lazy day just doing things that I want to and that I enjoy. This is a little bit naughty because I have just had a couple of days away from studying because I was feeling very depressed and I was unable to concentrate. But there is a big difference between not doing something because you are unable to, and not doing something because you don't want to.
Today, it is very much a case of the latter. So I am going to indulge myself. I'm going to do whatever it is that I feel like doing, and I am going to eat whatever I feel like eating. I shall be naughty and not count the cost or the calories. I shall do a bit of knitting, read a book, or watch a film on TV. If I feel like having a quick nap, that that is what I shall do. I am going to be selfish and think only of myself today.
I shall just have to work twice as hard tomorrow. That is one of the penalties for playing truant.
