I arrive at a new realization: I’m a terrible judge of how much I actually want to do something. Over the past few days, whenever one of Jason’s rules has forced me to do something worthwhile, I always feel like there is nothing in the world short, perhaps, of sharing an IV needle with Paris Hilton, which I would rather do less. But here’s the thing. With equal consistency, this feeling fades after five or ten minutes of action. Thus I conclude: I have no idea what I really want to be doing at any one moment.

I resolve to ignore myself more.
