6 Things I'd Rather Do Than Go To Work

I have to force myself to get ready and get out my house, which is what I have to do after I write this listicle.

6 Things I'd Rather Do Than Go To Work

I finally have a part-time job that doesn’t make me cringe every time I walk through the door, but that doesn’t mean I would go there willingly. I still have to force myself to get ready and get out my house, which is what I have to do after I write this listicle.

So, here are some things I’d rather do than go to work:

1. Do homework.

Yes, I know, homework is as bad as going to work, but at least I get to lay in my bed while I do it. I could even take a nap if I wanted to, or watch Netflix.

2. Book a one-way flight anywhere.

I always get tempted to run away from my responsibilities. I was recently in Chicago this past week, and my flight coming home was delayed almost four hours. All I could think about during my delay was how easily I could skip my flight and quit my job. But I couldn’t, because I have a good conscience, or whatever. I was disappointed in myself, too.

3. Write three months worth of articles.

I love writing, but sometimes I go through major writer’s block. It takes me a while to start writing something new, and it takes me even longer to think of something to write. It isn’t the most glamorous gig, it takes time and causes a lot of headaches. But at least I won’t have to clean an entire store.

4. Plan my budget for the school year.

College is expensive. I try my best not to think about how much I’ll have to work during the school year, because all it does is stress me out. I’d rather do this, than go to work, because this way I can pretend like I have it all figured out.

5. Pull an all-nighter.

I am like a toddler. I need at least eight hours of sleep, or else I am the crankiest human being. I will get mad at anything. If I don’t have work, I would at least have a free day to do all the sleeping I want after being up for an entire day. Sleeping is my favorite thing to do, and work deprives me of it.

6. Babysit a bunch of two-year-olds.

Two-year-olds are crazy, but they are so entertaining. Little kids are funny, because they do not know what social norms are. They are careless little creatures, who run around and laugh at nothing. But they are also a pain in the butt when they never stop crying. I’d prefer this rather than working, because time flies when you play with toddlers. At work, it’s like time stops completely.

Don’t get me wrong, I actually like my job. My bosses are really nice and caring. I love being able to work for my own paychecks and pay for my own things, but sometimes it is really hard to get up and go to work.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
