Effort, commitment, resourcefulness - NOT!

Young Cyd was a rather lazy girl - always looking for the easy way.  I was pretty good at doing my homework one class before it was due.  I did math in history, english in math, science in english, etc.  I hated house work and chores, and quickly discovered that by getting it done fast, it disapeared and left me more time for the things I wanted to do.  The interesting thing is that adults in my world praised me for this laziness - they thought I was being pro-active and industrial - when I was really racing through the required in pursuit of the fun.

Double goodness - time and praise - all arising from laziness.
