Now this is LJ, why did I just write a paragraph about basketball?
Well, that paragraph actually says a lot about me.
I'm techempage and I'm a Duke fan.
That's just the surface though.
That final 20 seconds in the game says a lot about me, as a metaphor.
5 point lead with 20 seconds left. I try very hard to get ahead, often times to get myself in a position to finish well.
But I blow it. All they had to do to finish was to get the ball inbounds and get fouled and the game was pretty much a given. I get ahead, ready to rock it out, make a couple stupid mistakes and find myself once again behind.
Take LJ Idol for example, I was ready to get some more work done on my writing. Yet here it is 1.75 hours before it is due and I am just now writing this. (Well, part of it is I was watching that game last night. But I could have done it earlier.)
But finally, I come in and at least make a shot at it. I'm not conceited enough, to say, like in this game, it goes in every time. I miss a lot. And sometimes, I don't beat the buzzer. But I always give it a hell of a shot.
I'm techempage and I'm a procrastinator.
So, if I make it past this round, watch for my under the wire shots. Post due by noon, that gives me until 11:59 to post it.
And hey, I'm ahead today. It looks like I'll have this up before 11.
Eh, maybe it's not a metaphor. Maybe I just wanted to post about my team's amazing finish.
