A not very timely note
This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Laziness" by Shinji
No new article in 6 days? Shinji to the rescue!
As we all know, everyone is lazy at some point; some more than others. I'm not going to lie - I had to overcome laziness to even write this article. Still, though, why are we lazy? I think it's because we like to live for the moment instead of planning ahead. There's a million-and-one things I could do, but laziness prevails and I don't do them. All I do is chill out. Yes, you can get a lot done if you put your mind to it, but sometimes it just feels good to sit around and do absolutely nothing, like you don't have a care in the world. A quote I heard a while back still sticks in my head and I doubt I'll ever forget it: "Hard work pays off tomorrow, laziness pays off now." Is there such thing as too much of a good thing? Yes. If you're too lazy, you end up being a big ball of fat sitting on a couch collecting welfare cheques. I suppose there's an age where you need to stop being lazy, or at least don't be as lazy. When you're a kid or a teen, laziness isn't very harmful. The reason is because you don't have a lot to deal with at that age. All you really have to worry about is school. When you're an adult it's time to grow up and get a job. In conclusion, when you're younger you can get away with being lazy a lot, but when you grow up you have to step up. Yes, everyone's lazy, but you need to fight it eventually. Things have to get done some time, right?
