Virtues

It didn’t take very long for me to start breaking the list of virtues created by our good old pal, Ben Franklin. Wednesday night my gram came in clutch and made her specialty, lasagna. She makes the best around and I pretty much ate my body weight in lasagna. I felt like I was in a food coma, so there goes the virtue of temperance. We also made some homemade sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies over the weekend and I managed to eat half of them myself because once you start you cant seem to stop. Industry was broken quite a few times, including right now, by procrastinating on my homework. Instead of getting it done right away, I found myself on the couch taking naps. After I woke up from my naps, I searched for any excuse possible to dodge doing the work. So here we are once again, 8:57 at night (which is early for me) doing my homework. The cleanliness virtue was broken too because I decided I was too lazy to put my clean clothes away, so I sat them on the chest at the end of my bed. Who knows when i’ll actually get the motivation to fully put them away. Maybe tomorrow maybe the day after that, who knows. Even when I do decide to put them away, more seem to magically appear. I swear its a repetitive cycle of clothing. Don’t even get me started on Order because 99% of the time my decisions are spur of the moment. I find myself never setting specific times for things or making lists of things that need to get done. I found myself randomly deciding to binge watch Christmas movies on Saturday when I should have devoted that time to getting around because we had to be in Hershey that night. Frugality is one that I will probably always struggle with. Do I really need that pair of Uggs, that Northface jacket, or those leggings? No, but I want them. I find myself buying things, wearing them once and never wearing them again. Even worse than that, when I clean out my closet I often find things new with tags that I just refuse to wear. The question “why would I even buy that?” floats through my mind in situations like those. I honestly thought that it would be easier to try to follow the virtues. I obviously proved to myself that I am far from perfect, but then again who really is? Everyone makes mistakes and everyone does things they aren’t proud of, but that’s what makes us human.Image result for spending money
