- A Tendency Toward Avoidance
Better question is what am I NOT avoiding. I am avoiding a great many things.
Here are a few
I'm avoiding going back to school because I don't know what I want to pursue. I don't want to put more money into post secondary if I can't get a decent job out of it.
I have to try very very hard to avoid telling people what I think. This is mostly just at work but sometimes applies to other situations. I tend to succeed at this but it is very hard and a little exhausting.
I avoid anything that involves me being submersed in water of any depth greater than a puddle. Also anything that involves me being high off the ground in contraptions of questionable integrity (this includes harnesses, ladders, people's shoulders, and ferris wheels).
I try (very unsuccessfully) to avoid the bookstore. My money has an awful tendency to disappear after a trip to the bookstore. It's a bit worrying. Likewise I also try to avoid comic book stores and art supply stores. And anywhere ready made caffinated beverages are sold. They seduce my money from me with promises of frothy sweet coffee confections.
I avoid admitting that I clearly have impulse control issues.
I avoid my cat when she's in "one of those moods" - when she decides that hunting and pouncing my feet is the highest form of entertainment available.
I am avoiding some of the other answers I could give here.
I am avoiding typing any of the stuffI have written recently because I actually really hate typing ( though you wouldn't know this by my extremely long winded answer) and this aversion to typing is actually severely hindering my progress with a set of short stories I am trying to write.
