the phrase would commonly be regarded by most people as writer’s block. but to me, a writing slump is just me getting either too bored to write anything, nothing to write about, or im just too lazy. my laziness has gotten the best of me most of the time. mostly with work and me writing in my blog. i got all these ideas to write about but when i think more about it i usually just do something else – like sleep.
so now that im over the slump, here are a few things i wanted to write about for the past 5 minutes.
a new phone
whenever i get a new phone, it’s usually because of my indecisiveness. i never know which phone to have for a year or two. when i see these other people who’s had their phones for a long time now, i always think: why can’t i be normal just like them? why can’t i just have one phone and not want to have another after about 6 months or so.
anyway, before i sent it off, i had to ask my friend if i could sell it. she sold me that phone and she kind of have a mutual attachement to it. i think i already talked about that in a previous post from a previous blog. i sold it to another friend who was just estatic upon receiving my offer at a very low price – she always wanted to have that phone. in fact, she was the first person i thought of when i decided to sell it.
my new phone is great. it doesn’t do much, but i think it’s great. im never really a big fan of all-in-one gadgets so i had to purchase my stuff like it was unique from my other stuff.
just before i started writing, i was looking for music to listen to while writing. i initially looked for explosions in the sky since theyre an instrumental band and i don’t have to sing while listening to it. i was look for a good title when i stumbled upon an incubus b-side called crowded elevator. so before i started writing, i was singing along to the song. i was reading the lyrics when i realized that at a recent point in my life, i also was in the same situation. it was not a crowded elevator but it was an elevator nonetheless. i wanted to say something to somebody but i couldnt seem to let it out. of course a few months later, i let the million words and phrases out the tip of my tongue and now where together.
it’s quite cool how some songs seem to be written about you, only it was written because of this band’s experience. only goes to show that people have the same experiences everyday. it could be in a different setting, circumstance or time, but when you think on it, it’s all the same.
so after crowded elevator, i decided to listen to this other incubus song whose intro riff has been ringin in my head since the other day. reading the lyrics while singing to it, i realized that i’ve had the same experience a million times. not on the road though, but in my head.
ever worked on something then you get distracted a little and you start another thing then get distracted again and you end up doing a whole ‘nother thing from the one you started? it happens to me all the time. it contributes to my indecisiveness perhaps. but it’s just so hard to not look at a car crash.
speaking of nowhere fast, make yourself is now my favorite all-time album not because of the hit singles it produced, but because of the first five tracks, i miss you and battlestar schralactica.
kenan and kel
i just finished downloading 11gb, four seasons worth of orange-soda loving, whyyy-asking, slapstick comedy kenan and kel. it’s probably the first sitcom i ever favorited. now i’m fixed for the next two weeks until watch jack bauer.
