university

Boredom…

I have reached an odd point in my life right now. I am at the stage now where I have finished school and will never need to go back there again. And I will be starting university in a few weeks. My days consist of watching YouTube, Netflix, gaming, occasionally going out and exercising, which for the most part is a pretty big waste of time…

Now while there is nothing wrong with what I am doing, for me, it is not enough. My mind is loosing its edge as it is not being engaged to the level I am used to. I suppose that is part of the reason why I even started this blog, to do something different and learn something new to help me stay focused and keep my mind remotely engaged. Sure, you can argue that throwing a mediocre (hell you could even argue this writing is bad, not even mediocre, but I gotta stay positive!) string of flowing text is not exactly difficult. However, to me this some sort of productive use of time.

A few days ago I arrived at the realisation that I have to change and wasting my days away wasn’t going to do anyone any favours. So over the last week I tried being more productive… Before I get into that I should explain what I would defy as being productive. To me productivity is working on a way to better yourself, whether you are trying to improve physically or mentally this kind of improvement is what I call being productive. A way in which you learn something (your ┬ábody can learn things too) new.

Now the few poor souls who are still here would be asking (or looking for the exit button) “well how are you being productive?”. I am being productive by trying to learn. Every day I read the news, every day I read a few pages from a book (currently reading “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline), Hell I even open Wikipedia and start reading random articles. I mean did you know that cherophobia is the fear of having fun? Did you?! I didn’t think so because neither did I up until a few seconds ago until I read about it as I was procrastinating on writing this post.

Sadly, doing all this is still not enough and often I still feel boredom’s tight grip around me. Tho it is slowly getting better. University is around the corner so hopefully I’ll have something to occupy me then. But until then I suppose this little blog will do. Thinking about it I am sure I will come back to here in 5 years time (who know’s maybe I will still be writing on here) and read this again and notice how poorly written all of this. And what do I have to say to my future self? Nothing really just the fact that hopefully my writing has somewhat improved. And on that note, until next time!

Hello World!

I suppose I couldn’t start this blog without titling it “Hello World!”. For me it this phrase feels like a right of passage every time I start something new which in this case is a blog. Now, blogging is pretty outdated at this point (a solid decade now) but for someone like me it is the correct platform to express my self since I am not a huge fan of putting my self out there and recording my self on a camera, so here I am starting a blog only a decade too late.

Now, I should explain why I am even starting this blog. The blog exists to give me a way to express my thoughts and feelings and help me keep a record of it. In a way it’s a bit like a diary, since the whole point of it is to help me put my thoughts in some sort of order and my future self can look back upon this blog to see how I changed and moulded over time.

A little bit about me, I am currently 18 years old and live in London. I finished school this year and in October I will start university. Now I do not want to over share so I suppose this is as much information as you (the theoretical single soul that somehow stumbles upon this site and decides to read what I have written here) need. Most likely as time goes by you will end up learning more about me as I get more comfortable with writing on here.

From what you have read already you can tell that my writing abilities are not the greatest but then again this blog is for my self and I suppose overtime my writing will improve and become more fluid and advanced.

Content wise you can expect almost anything from aeroplanes to zebras. I will write about subjects I’m interested about or something that happened to me in real life and I want to share. Maybe, there will be some stories too about events that happened before but who knows I suppose anything goes. There will be no schedule for this as I am a slow writer and will only publish a post once I am happy with it.

Until next time!
