If I’m reading my cards right, it’s been literally 4 weeks since I last had something published on Dancing Silhouettes. I guess I could blame this phenomenon on the ragged events that have been dotting my days for the past weeks that have gone by this month and last included. Most of them haven’t been very heart-warming, especially if I should bring the spotlight on how school’s been for me. In all honesty it’s been frustrating; very, very frustrating. I’m not exactly one to spill details on things so easily, so you may excuse my reluctance to open up the floodgates so easily. We all have our problems, so I shouldn’t be the one to complicate things and make you feel like I’m adding a burden to what you already have.
Some of those I’m pretty close with and talk to regularly (Detanfy and Proteus take tops on that list) know what’s been going on, or know at least a bit of what’s been going on. Just to clarify, I’m not in a depressed state or in a pit of sadness just wallowing out in grief and looking for that one little crack in the darkness that will shed light on my situation, no. It’s something more constructive and less dramatic than that.
To start off, let me say that I’ve picked up on a few of the hobbies that I had left behind, though it’s in a way making me neglect those that I originally went for subconsciously. For example, I’ve gone back to writing (rough work stuff, stories, songs, that sorta thing). I’ve also gone back to drawing, though I haven’t been doing that one on a full scale, but still it’s there. This coming week I could be involved in some event planning scenarios that would have me in tech operations (being a geek has some advantages I suppose). I decided to sit down and get myself to just watch stuff that I love, for example Robot Chicken, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls (definitely) and the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (if you haven’t tried that one you’re missing on something pretty cool); I’m managing to get up-to-date with some of them, which is a really good thing for me. I’ve begun reading again, and in a fiercer manner. I managed to finish 3 books in one month, and I’ve increased my total read this year to 11 (my target is 50 by the way). I know it’s not much, but considering how I was earlier this year, I say it’s a good enough step for me to keep going with and improving on. Continue Reading →
