I’m Done Again

I never intended this blog to be so much of me talking about my problems. I meant to only write about my thoughts on the world. Current events, TV, books, etc. I did that quite a bit in the beginning with a little bit of my personal life sprinkled in. I did posts about my vacations and posts about my time working in jail.  Lately, it feels like all I do is post about how miserable I am. I’m done with that. I will still be miserable. I just won’t write about it. I’ve given up on any change coming. I’m stuck where I am with no options or support to make a change to a less toxic life. No one wants to read about that every day. no one wants to write about that every day. I feel like I’m back on Livejournal when that’s what everyone did. No more. I’m done.

So, since I’m done with all that, I’m not sure how much I will be writing. I will still do my Friday post about what I’ve watched and read. I will still do my Sunday post where I write about good things from the week before. I will try to back to writing more about my thoughts on current events and such. I might try a few reviews, but likely not. I just don’t know when I will be in the mindest to write those things.

When you wake up to news about a pandemic and go to bed with news about a pandemic it’s hard to feel like writing about the news. When you wake up feeling physically ill about the thought of clocking in and go to bed feeling ill about waking up and clocking in the next day, it’s hard to do more than sit on the couch and watch TV.

So, I might disappear except for my Friday and Sunday posts. I might not. It’s hard to tell. I do plan to try to keep up my vacation habit of looking at very limited social media. I am going to try to limit my constant need to know the Covid stats in the country. I will learn to live with my daily dose of toxicity. It has to get better at some point. Right?

    Yes. It has to get better at some point. I go to a dark place if I do not constantly tell myself that. I do suggest write whatever you feel like. The best part of writing an independent blog is it is ours. We write for ourselves. Keep writing, Tater.

    It’s hard. I keep a list of things that seem interesting to write about, and I try to resist talking about my boring, turgid life. But given that we’re all pretty much stuck at home with little variation, mustering the energy to talk about anything is a challenge. Maybe it’s easier if you’re an influencer and can wax excited on that latest bit of fashion and gossip. But that’s not me (to my financial detriment).

      Yeah

      I keep saying I need to take notes so I don’t forget things I might want to write about. So far, I have not.

    I’m right there with you, brother. Stay strong. It’s gotta turn upwards at some point.
