Her mind was too preoccupied to pay attention to her math teacher droning on and on with his lesson. She was thinking about the boy with his sandy blond hair and green eyes, the way he smiled with that crooked smirk of his, the way his bangs gently brushed against his forehead ever so gracefully. Math was the last thing on her mind today, all she could think about was him.

I often find myself to be so damn preocupied. I don’t even have to think about it, I just am…. I wish I had time to do the things I want; what do I want? Im not really sure… want to do many things.

yesterday, i was supposed to something but i was preoocupied and i ended up procrastinating and forgot to do what i was supposed and still haven’t done it.

My mind was fixed on the knife that lay steadily in my hand. My mind was blank and I could feel wet blood rolling around on the ground which preoccupied me for some time. After a while I left my sister there to die. I went up to my desolate room and dreamt of how this all started

He was too preoccupied with his video game to pay any attention to me. Why was this? How could a mere video game take away his time from me, his partner? A $30 game, compared to me, who’s priceless? He’d rather spend his money on games rather than gifts for me that I would take as precious. How selfish.

He was preoccupied by the sight of her. Just gazing at her set all previous thoughts aside. It wasn’t like him. Yet somehow her large brown eyes just captivated and demanded all of his attention. And that smile. It made him want to give the world to her.

I feel like i’m preoccupied with the wrong things. Distracted by insignificant matters instead of being on the right track. I’m not seeing what I should be seeing. Doing what I should be doing. I’m not where I need to be.

sometimes i find myself thinking too much about myself. in fact, sometimes, that’s the only subject i end up thinking about at all. in spanish, preocupado means worried. that’s exactly what i am. worried about my life. worried about my relationships. worried.

I am preoccupied by thinking about the next chance I will have to remove my skin. I am thinking about cutting. I am thinking about therapy again. I am thinking about River wood mental hospital. Thus, I am very preoccupied… Help me?

I often feel preoccupied when I really have nothing to do at all. Sometimes I tell people I’m busy but really I just want to be alone. I think that I need someone to make me feel loved, but the truth is that I really love to be sad. On some level, I know that must be true. I wish I were different. I really do. But I’m not.

I am always preoccupied with something else. Too busy to sleep. Too busy to think about what my heart is trying to tell me. Healthy? Definitely not. What shall I do to fix this problem? I think I will stargaze now.
By Sarah Lee URL on 09.24.2011
doing something else when you should be doing another thing. you always have to many things to do and don’t have enough time for some. need to get organized and not have so many things on your plate at once
By maxi on 09.24.2011
Preoccupied is when people are busy, when people have too much to do, when people have too much on their plate, when people have things that are too important to do rather than deal with you and your problems, when people are distracted by something, .

I am forever preoccupied with things that I need to get done, and when I am doing things, I wonder what else there is that I need to work on next. It’s a very stressful existence and a form of living and I don’t think I will ever be able to escape. Is so and so okay, am I doing this right, what if this happened instead…all are questions I ask myself constantly, and I never take time for myself.

She twirled a tendril of hair around her index finger, her brows furrowed as she thought about the test questions before her. Her mind preoccupied, she didn’t notice her classmate peaking at her paper to steal some answers.

I’m giving myself excuses for not writing. As if I’m actually doing something that’s keeping me from it. It’s annoying that I just find myself doing nothing instead of doing what I love.
By Courtney URL on 09.24.2011
Joey is far too preoccupied with the TV and his stupid fish right now. I’m honestly getting so bored and all I want to do is get hammered playing Ring of Fire and drinking my watermelon four loko. I wish he’d come cuddle with me because this dorm is freezing!

I’m so preoccupied with thoughts of you.
With thoughts of me.
With thoughts of you.
Please get out.
Of my life. Of my mind. Of my heart.
Please don’t leave.
My life. My mind. My heart.
I will always love you.

I was distracted by the water droplets racing down the window panes. The sunlight had been gone for a while, but these drops seemed content with the notion of another day of grey. Who needs sunlight to be happy anyway? They connected, carrying themselves farther down the glass, gravity taking its course as my gaze was weighted with it.

I missed a thousand times on the porch with my grandparents, whom I only have once.

I sat next to her in the coffee shop. I tried to make eye contact but she was too preoccupied with her non-fat mocha latte and a plate full of biscotti. I leaned in close. Almost touching her table. Ahem. “Yes?” she asked. “Do you have any sugar?” “We’re in a coffee shop.” “Right.”

I’m preoccupied in various things but thinking of them now they see so insignificant. I wonder if I’ll ever think about this things in the future. I think we should live our lifes without worries because somehow it’s not worth it…

i was too preoccupied to notice that one of my fingers was gone. what was i preoccupied with? oddly enough, i was reading a book on distractions and their effects on the psyches of humans as well as small echidnas. when i was four, i had a pet echidna that i appropriately named mr. stepson.

I always get preoccupied when I am supposed to be getting things done, such as homework and assignments and even work in class. Friends preoccupy me, my boyfriend preoccupies me, and the bloody internet preoccupies me. Oh and I can’t forget the television… My mum gets very angry at how preoccupied I get… It isn’t very good.

they were preoccupied with something at the moment; that’s what they all said, the fancy men in their fancy business suits, the angry and angsty teenagers filled with despair at the horribly mundane lives, the tired and sad old men going through their mid-life crisis. they didn’t stop to take a break; to listen to jazz for an afternoon, the melody of the saxophone shooting straight to their heart; to watch the kids at the park play, the bright light of their smiles sending sparks to their love; to smell the freshly baked cookies of the little store on the corner that had the best fudge brownies in the world. they were preoccupied, they said, with life.
By Leanne URL on 09.24.2011
I can try to think enough to write, but I’m preoccupied. I want to learn to knit and sew and be creative, but I’m preoccupied. I want to become a spontaneous person, to be a free and creative spirit, but I’m preoccupied. Hours of marching band practice. Hours of school. Hours of not-so-fun life otherwise. I want to live more, but I’m preoccupied.
By monkeygospunky URL on 09.24.2011
I’m preoccupied because my brother is talking to me about foot fetishes. I should be focused on more important things, like Patrick Stump and how skinny he now is, but instead I’m here. Thinking about feet, my brother, this word, and Patrick Stump. I’m so preoccupied.

I am so preoccupied with everything right now and I don’t know what to do with myself. I just need to relax sometimes.I need to do chores around the house and be a little more proactive. I have been doing great though with the new move and have been having fun.

I was more than happy to be preoccupied by him each and every day. He literally was the reason I fell asleep with a smile on my face, and woke up with a smile on my face. I wanted to be with him every second of every hour; he seemed to be my everythig anymore, and as much as that scared me I absolutely loved it. We were surrendering ourselves to each other. There was no going back for I had already fallin deeply in love with him….irrevocably in love with who he made me and who he was. <3

I feel like life these days is hindered by a sense that something is always looming that must be taken care of. There is no time to relax. No time to enjoy. No time.
