While i’ve been taking breaks from writing daily, I haven’t been extra productive with the extra time I have. Instead, I’ve been using it to game, watch shows and so on. Not the best use of my time, but hey – it’s my time and I can do whatever I want with it. I finally started watching season 2 of Attack on Titan, finished watching Look Who’s Back, and caught up on Riverdale.
Which reminds me, I think it’s time I finish writing new music and start gigging again. It’s been awhile since my last show, I think my guitars are collecting dust at home. Time to go out and damage my vocal chords again. I miss it. However, I don’t want to play the same old songs over and over again, which is my excuse for not performing. But I haven’t been using my free time to write new songs, so I’m stuck in a loop where I’m not making any progress towards my goals. It’s time to change things up a bit.
Other projects I’ve said I wanted to do this year but haven’t done anything about: make my first game, turn my story into a graphic novel. Did I want to do those things because at my previous job I didn’t have the ability to be creative and now that I do, I don’t feel like I want to spend my free time creating again? Am I just making excuses for myself? Probably. I should get around to doing it. At least I haven’t let up on some of the other things I wanted to do this year. I’ve been slowly cleaning my room. I’ve sold off some keyboards that I don’t use anymore. I’ve sold off a bunch of old books, though I have a whole lot more than I plan on giving away. Gonna do the same with my old clothes I don’t wear anymore.
Solo was an alright movie. Deadpool 2 was better (I enjoyed it more than infinity War). Looking forward to Antman, Venom and the Spiderman animation later this year.
Post Malone’s latest album is great, so is CHVRCHES’. Stoked for Dance Gavin Dance dropping next week.
Not sticking to a writing schedule feels strange. It’s like I have no direction about what I want to write anymore. But writing is better than not writing, so you’ll just have to put up with my incoherent ramblings until I’m back on track.
