Enneagram Exercise: Day 1

Well, I learned one thing on the first day of this exercise:  my brain is perfectly capable of outfoxing me.

"I have to finish one project at a time?  Fine.  Guess what, sweetcheeks?  I don't have to finish what I don't start."

Oh.  Also there was  the mid-afternoon meltdown.

(Which occurred because, despite having a degree in English Lit, I am not capable of writing a 5 page paper.  Any evidence to the contrary has been a complete fluke.  Monkeys at typewriters, hammering out Hamlet.  Ergo, I cannot sit down and write the whole paper, because if I sit down with that intention I will be trapped in the Chair of Failure forever.  No paper will be forthcoming.  Only the horrendous taunting of a blank screen.)

"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
