Wow…you would think that for someone with his own blog (which he pays for to have online) and for someone who is pretty outspoken like I am (so people say) I would have a lot more to write…

Frankly, I don’t. Or it’s more that I just can’t find the right words to write what I would want to write, or I’m just lazy, or too busy.

“But Erik, it’s your blog, you can write whatever you want to write!” you would say

First, it’s rude to interrupt when someone is talking

Second, true. So it gets down to being either too lazy or too busy.

Well, actually I guess it’ll be laziness then. I can make time to write for my own blog if I really wanted to. I mean, instead of playing video games, watching youtube videos or doing other stuff that people would find a waste of valuable time but many times it comes down to: “I don’t wanna!”

Which is sadly the case of many promises I make to myself.

“I’m really going to train three times a week!”

“I’m going to find an interesting topic to write about every week!”

“I will finish this column about autism this week!”

“I will finish this Let’s play as soon as possible!”

“But I really don’t wanna…”

And it’s not that I don’t find enjoyment in these activities but sitting behind a screen turning your brain off is sooooooooooooooooooooooo much more fun.

I’m having trouble of emptying my mind at the moment…I used to be able to do that and then I could focus on my other things I like to do. But lately (and lately is in the last six months or so) I can’t…not really. Things stay in there removing every bit of willpower to do stuff that could be considered creative or active. I just want to do nothing…think of nothing…

Well, writing this might help a bit to get it off my chest. I hope. I’m not trying to ask for sympathy I just want to “explain” why my online activities have been mostly restricted sharing funny pictures on Facebook and making a snide comment here and there. Even twitter I find hard to keep up with. Aaaah, first world problems.

Unto some fun stuff I guess:

I’m going to have this play in November and now we got the costumes and stuff I’m really looking forward to it. I even get to sing in it…okay, four lines and I’m supposed to sing them off key on purpose (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) but still! My first singing role since I was twelve.

I’m playing Fable Anniversary at the moment and even though I already owned Fable Lost Chapters I’m having such a good time playing it. Fable 2 and 3 might have been let downs for many people but Fable is still a good game.

I’ve been listening to audiobooks the last couple of months and I have been enjoying the hell out of it. Especially the voice over work from Marc Thompson, he has a big range of voices he can do and his Luke, Han and Lando are the best (yes…I have been listening to Star Wars books). Oh and his Admiral Thrawn is awesome! If I could only do half the voices he could do…well at least I’m having fun with my brother playing Baldur’s gate with my William Shatner and Darth Vader impressions.

I have watched every episode of Doctor Who (well, every episode since the revival) and now I have to wait till new episodes come out and it sucks!

Also…apparently I am trying to find a Doctor Who reference in almost every conversation I have now if some of my friends are to believed. But actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it’s more of a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey…stuff

Will be continued…

    If it’s any consolation: I was in my own one-Doctor-Who-quote-per-message phase and it passed. It came and it went and is now long gone with barely a quote per every other message.
