Well it was either that or stay on Twitter and be anxious and depressed instead. I decided to take a few days off Twitter, and here I am just before bedtime, writing an unpost.
I’m going to try and be even more stream-of-consciousness than usual, by dictating this to my phone and hoping it comes out in a reasonably coherent form. But there’s no guarantee of that. Anyway I’m just going to carry on until I get too tired to keep going or until things just become so absurd that no one can follow what I’m saying.
I suppose I could talk about where I am at the moment. Physically I am located in my living room, and more specifically, sitting on my sofa. The sofa is in front of a wall with flowery wallpaper, the other three walls being painted an off-white of some sort. There is a window opposite the sofa.
It’s not a very big room, so it’s quite cluttered despite not having a huge amount of stuff in it. But I suppose a piano and a small bookshelf do take up a bit of room.
I didn’t mean to talk about my room. That just somehow happened. But I’m sitting here in my pyjamas, the same pyjamas that I was wearing when I woke up this morning, because today has been a pyjama day.
Did I say that I’m bored? Well, I am. Did I mention that I’m lonely? Well, that too.
I’m bored and I’m lonely because I haven’t been on Twitter today. I mentioned that already, didn’t I? It’s actually very hard to fill a day that used to be filled with social media. There are so many things that I could be doing instead, but I’ve found myself unable to do very much else. I played some mindless word games on my iPad. I listened to ABBA Gold a couple of times, despite concerns that I might disturb my neighbours. I even played through the song I’ve been working on a few times, but I’m still stuck because I need to write some lyrics.
I managed to heat up something to eat for my tea, but because I didn’t get dressed today I didn’t go out to the shop. So I have hardly anything left in the kitchen. I could do with some more variety in my food. There are other things I could’ve done today, in theory, but not in practice. Sometimes my brain just doesn’t let me.
I can’t really believe that anyone will read this far, because I really just have been saying words that come into my head without much thought. This is just something for me to do, a way of connecting to other people. Did I say that I’m lonely?
So often these days I feel the need for connection with other people, and by the end of the day when there has been none, I feel the need to keep trying, but I never really know how. I often have a desperate desire to talk to someone late at night, but I know that all sensible people have gone to bed. And who would want to talk to me?
If you’ve read this far, you’re probably getting bored by now. Did I say that I’m bored? Well, that makes two of us.
If you find my blog informative, inspiring or entertaining, or if you attach any other positive value to it, please consider tipping me on Ko-fi, so that I can maintain my essential coffee habit and continue writing.
