Today is one of those days where I am writing for the sake of posting every day. The truth is that I don’t really think I have all that much of interest to say today but as I have kept my goal to post something new every day, I would hate to see it end. Besides, getting out of the habit of posting regularly is pretty easy for me and I would hate for this blog to go silent even if its value is somewhat questionable.
I actually think that there is a reason why I don’t feel much like writing today. I’m really just having an off day and am pretty tired. If that weren’t the case I would probably come up with something more interesting to say. As it is, I’m writing this now so that I can go lie down and maybe remain that way for the rest of the night. Tomorrow will be a new day with new challenges.
I did finish watching through all 5 seasons and 2 movies of ‘Daria’ just now. It seems like whenever I binge watch a show like this I always get sad at the end. Sad that there are no new episodes coming and that I will have to find something else. This honestly doesn’t make much sense to me since I can easily just go back to the beginning and watch Daria again if I want. It isn’t like the show has vanished forever never to be seen again and yet I still feel sad that I reached the end of the series.
I have no news on my writing project. I think I might try to write something tomorrow to keep the momentum going from Friday. I am still not very disciplined when it comes to the task of writing, even if Melissa says I am more disciplined than her. I have been thinking about it off and on all weekend though and have come up with a few things.
One of the things I am going to have to work hard at is conveying the right tone. I want whatever this is going to be, a book, a series, whatever to be intense at times but funny and absurd at other times. I worry though that if it is too absurd once the time has come for things to get more serious and intense it won’t feel right because of the more humorous tone elsewhere.
In a follow-up to Yesterday’s Post, I can confirm that Pancakes & Maple Syrup Jelly Belly Jellybeans are pretty fantastic. I guess this post ended up being more substantial than I suspected when I started writing it. I absolutely did not tell you it would be pointless to lower your expectations. No, not me, absolutely not.
