Laziness and Responsibility

I've been connecting to home from work for a few days now - everything seems pretty stable which is good. I get kicked off the connection every now and zen but otherwise it's tolerable because I can just reconnect.

I have been getting very lazy concerning the screenplay I'm writing, and I've got to get that done and not let it just sit there. That has been bothering me for a few days now.

My Counter-Strike team is still looking for team players who will actually show up when they're supposed to. I am having (what I consider) a large problem getting people who apply to the team to actually BE there when tryouts are scheduled. This is what happens: They sign up, get their application approved, have a tryout scheduled and then ditch. They they contact me AFTER they ditch and explain "why" (which is a guaranteed lie). Sadly enough, most teenagers (the age group who plays Counter-Strike mostly) have absolutely no sense of responsibility when it comes to commitments of any type. Very, very frustrating - and annoying to boot. I guess that's what you get when you deal with teens. Most of them just expect to have everyone else take care of them and not suffer the consequences of their actions. But I don't play that. (grin)

It's also getting closer to the big day when I pay off the car. I look forward to it but at the same time fear it for obvious reasons. See my previous post on that for the reasons why. As the day gets nearer, I'm reminded "Wow, I've been making car payments for seven years!". Yeah, seven years. Making car payments for what seems like forever happens because most of us will "roll over" an old car's loan into a new one in order to get a new car. That's what I did several years ago. It's also the reason I'm still making payments today. But not for long. And man does it feel good to say that. The happiness outweighs the fear here. Yeah I'll take a big chunk out of my savings to pay off the car. But I will have a paid car. Paid, paid and paid. YES. (grin)
