I have never been known for my punctuality. If anything I’m famous for precisely the opposite. Amongst my friends, this personality quirk has been acknowledged and accepted – at least I think it has. Friends would work around this by telling me to meet them a half an hour before our actual meeting time, or they would arrive with a book or some knitting to amuse themselves while they waited.

I’ve tried to overcome this character flaw. I’ve talked to councilors, bought numerous daytimers, and even taken books out of the library on time management – which I returned late. No joke that really happened – twice.

It’s not that I am disrespectful about other people’s time, I just have a really poor grasp of how long it takes to do things. Plus I think I can get WAAAAY more done in a day than I actually can. That and I tend to have too many projects on the go at one time and perfectionist tendencies. All of these things get in the way of getting tasks done quickly.

Admittedly, so does procrastination. And what better way to procrastinate than to create an entire mix filled with songs about procrastination, waiting, and poor time management!? I could think of no better way so here it is! No fancy descriptors this time, just the lyrics pertaining to the theme in question.

This mix is for my friend Pete. Aka, “Super Tardy Man,” from me, the “Amazing un-prompt woman!” Pete is responsible for the image on the front – I believe it was his rendering of what a superhero that battled time would dress like.

And in keeping with this theme, I actually started this mix about a year ago and have been meaning to finish it off for at least 4 months.

Again, I’m working on it.

Track Description:
"Days turn into afternoons

Afternoons turn into weeks

Pretty soon another year is gone

Still you ain’t got yourself no peace

What’s the use of sitting around waiting

Anticipating your whole life away

Waiting for you ship to come

Come on that sunny day

Put your mind to it

see yourself through it

First step is the hardest

But you got to get yourself started

Ain’t no way for a garden to grow

You got to water, got to work with the hoe

Ain’t no way for yourself to get fed

You don’t get up and get out of bed

Wash your face, comb your hair

Get on straight and get out there"
