Shower'n'an Hour (Or Two)
It's noon. I haven't taken a shower. I feel rather unproductive. Why is that?
Why do I always feel unproductive when I divert from my normal routine. Well, maybe not always. There are certain routine things that energize me and enthuse me when changed up, but it always happens when I don't take a shower. Yes, I feel a bit dirtier than usual, but that's to be expected. The same feeling gets in me when I sleep overnight somewhere aside from my own bed. What the hell? Is it just more difficult to function and do the things I want in foreign environs?
So now, still unshowered, I'm going to sensibly continue to stay that way until about an hour before work. There's no reason I should feel this way, aside from the fact that I deviated from a deeply rooted activity in my routine; something I do every day no matter what. I'm going to put it off and do some other stuff in the meantime. I still feel unproductive, and something inside tells me, whether I'm actually productive or not, that it's not going to change for a while. It hasn't stopped me before, and I'll be damned if it stops me now.
