So many penchants but so little time

lap top and papersI’m one of those people who can’t decide what I like doing the most. I’ve got so many different things I find enjoyable so I can’t just choose one. In a way, I envy those who only got at least one penchant that they focus on. My mind goes everywhere. That’s one of the reasons why it has taken me so long to find what I want to do for a living. I always wanted to be different. I wanted to have a job where I could express myself. I’ve  looked for things other people thought were impossible. I’ve never been driven by money. It’s good to have but I rather have a job that I like. Life’s too short to do something only because of money. If I have to do something I’m not interested in, I feel trapped and my motivation is low. I’ve had those internships where I had nothing to do and I was bored out of my mind. Anyone could feel the same in that situation. You should do what you like and is good at it. It doesn’t matter what others think.

There is an advantage for liking different things. If you get bored with one thing, you can do another. I for one get bored if I do only one thing. If it’s music taste or movie genre, my likes are wide-ranged. I couldn’t listen to one kind of music style. There are so many good songs so I can’t choose which is my all time favourite. I don’t even know what’s the best band in the world because there’s so many I like. The same goes for artists. It’s easier to choose which ones I don’t like. That’s the same with anything else in life. I usually choose things with feeling. What kind of music I listen or what kind of movie I’m gonna watch depends on my mood. It doesn’t matter what kind of song it is. I can listen to sad songs even if I’m happy. Some might listen to sad songs when they’re sad but I find songs with a positive tune a much better cure. Music has always been a helpful tool for different emotions for me. Laughing also makes me feel better.

I love comedy but not just any kind. I think they used to make much better comedy shows and movies in the past. What you see these days are not funny at all. The only show that I can mention from the 2010’s is ‘The big bang theory‘. Some might not find it funny but that’s their opinion. Maybe ‘Modern Family‘ but I haven’t watched it that much. ‘30 Rock‘ was funny too. It seems that young people find being drunk and act like an idiot, is funny. The funniest comedy shows were made in the 80’s and 90’s. They’re still funny. Good ones will never get old. What you see now, won’t be remembered in 20 years or more. They’re not funny now so they won’t be funny then. I guess all the best ideas are already done. At least you can watch the oldies on DVD’s or online streaming. There’s just so many good ones but so little time.

If I had to choose just one penchant, then it would be writing. Not only blogging but also writing in general. It has always been a part of me since the day I learned to spell. I had my first diary at 7 but then it was just scribbling. Writing is easier than talking. When you write you have time to think. You can always come back to it and add things. But when you talk to someone, you can’t get it back or you forget to say something. I think before I speak and even then the words don’t come out the way I thought in my head. Afterwards, I wish I had said those things and it torments me a few days. Writing can also be a disadvantage. People can misunderstand you and it’s more difficult to write the exact thoughts in words. Writing emotions or sounds in words is most difficult. In any language. I sometimes struggle with that and try to find an answer on the internet. Then it frustrates me when I can’t find the answer. Those are probably the only downsides to it. Other times, writing is fun and a great distraction from other daily things. We all need an escape from time to time and writing is mine.



I know you're there. Why do you linger in the shadows?
