I have about 8 posts sitting in my drafts folder, collecting dust. I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately. Maybe it’s because I no longer have a reliable Internet connection, or maybe because I now have an existing life outside the Interweb, not to mention an actual boyfriend (just thought I’d include him here) that I have to share some (most) of my time with and who actually gives me his answers in some of my inane questions instead of Googling them in the middle of the night like I used to do. Whatever, I’m lazy.
I’ve been meaning to share a lot of my experiences here in The Philippines. Not because I think any of you are actually willing to sit down and read them but because I wanted to write about it while I still can. I can’t believe that I’ve already been back here for 2 months. Well, my savings account will tell you otherwise, but what the hell.
So going back to my laziness. I have no real excuse for it. Something just takes over and I no longer feel the need to actually do anything. It is really odd. Because for a person of my age, who has full control over what I can and cannot do, I like doing laundry than having to sit in front of the computer for 8-16 hours (depends on whether or not I’m re-watching 30 Rock again) like what I was so used to for the past 2 years. Believe it or not (talking to myself here), I haven’t updated my Facebook status in months. Months! I used to have like a snarky status update every other day (depends on the news headlines that day). I haven’t visited Buzzfeed in like….forever! I’m detached to what’s going with the Hillary campaign and I haven’t seen a YouTube video in (and I’m running out of adjectives here) a long long time.
Other reasons may include that my writing has become stale. That my priorities are no longer priorities. That I feel that I have once again, compromised what I really set out to do for something comfortable. I have gone back to my old routine of playing Tekken 6 in my PSP while sitting in the toilet, waiting for my bowels to agree with me (sorry for that image) and while I wait for my next opponent (I’m quite good actually), I think, I should be doing something…productive.
We may all come up with our own excuse for our own laziness but I think we don’t actually have one. All the ones we come up with are nothing short of a sad description of what our current life really is like. But I like how some people can romanticize their own mundane life. That catching up on the latest season of Orphan Black is an actual accomplishment. God Bless those people.
