You know that feeling you get when you've accomplished something that needed to be done, but at the same time you've neglected something else that was more important or pressing? It's like a blend of pride and shame. I think people with a predisposition to procrastination know this feeling well. It seems like there should be a German word for it, like Schadenfreude - so much meaning packed into 13 letters.

Wrote a blog post about that feeling. Great! Dishes are still in the sink.
(At least I started the laundry.)
