Invisible old blog posts

Today’s word in Ragtag Daily Prompt is, Invisible. I have written about this before, so here are the old posts from my archive. Nothing much has changed since then when it comes to my thoughts.

Thinking of my life so far, it has really been very inefficient. I don’t really have anything special to tell the future generations. My biggest achievement is probably staying alive this far. Or I haven’t killed anyone yet. That counts for something, doesn’t it?

There is a song by Queen called ‘The invisible man‘ That’s what I feel but as a woman. I’m an invisible individual that no one seems to care about in real life. Except for my dad. I’m totally fine with that because I don’t want that much attention.

This is a sketch from the British comedy show, The Fast Show. I don’t know why the word camouflage reminded me of this. Sometimes it feels like I’m invisible. But in some things, it’s kind of good. I don’t want that much attention from other people.

Slumber blogging

It’s been a bit slumber on my part when it comes to blogging. Well, 7 days isn’t much of a break. It feels that I’ve already said everything I wanted here. Some days just are lazier than others. You can’t write a blog post properly if you slumber because then you get nothing done. Well, you can, but it won’t make any sense. I don’t slumber at the moment, but still, this post might look like it. You be the judge. This makes sense, or it doesn’t.

I can’t force inspiration to just pop up in my head. That goes with almost everything creative. I can slumber if I’m bored or when things don’t interest me. Or if I haven’t slept enough. Blogging is like driving a car. You shouldn’t do it if you’re tired or even slumber. You should have energy and have the feeling to do it. If you don’t, you should do something else instead. I have a few writing projects going on at the same time. It’s because I want a change from time to time.

When you see tips about writing a blog post, they say it shouldn’t be too short. It depends on what kind of blog you have. I don’t like reading long posts. They make me slumber. If the posts are interesting, then I might not. I don’t even like to read long articles. I just look through them. I might start to read them, but then I read something else if it’s not interesting enough. I especially dislike reading articles where you have to search for what is said in the title. Blog posts and articles of news are different things. I might read the whole blog post, but not when it comes to an article.

My blogging has been a little slumber this year. I have written 11 posts this year. A year before, I had written 18 posts. That’s how it goes. I hope no one of you feels slumber when you read this blog. I can understand if you do because that’s what I feel sometimes. A night of good night sleep is good medicine for that—so sweet dreams.

My short-lived excitement

When I feel the excitement of something it’s usually short-lived. I don’t know why. Maybe because my mind is all over the place. I’m never doing things with a passion. I have so many things I like so it’s difficult to choose just one to concentrate on. I get excited about one thing and then I realise it’s not what I want so it dries out. In some things, I get the excitement back after a break. One of them is reading. I got excited about getting a library card and read books. But now my excitement for book reading has calmed down. I have one book to read but I haven’t finished it yet even though there’s not much left. It’s the English version of ‘The Hobbit’ I have the Finnish version of it and I read it in about 3 days and I have already read it twice. I don’t why this one takes so long to read. I already renewed it once. I read one chapter yesterday. I guess I’m just a slow book reader and I get distracted a lot.

Having a short-live excitement is the worse when it comes to deciding what job to do. Photography was on my agenda for a long time. Until I studied it in 2014-2015 and realised I didn’t want to do it as a living. I got excited for web design and then graphic design but now it feels like I’m indifferent about that too. Even becoming an entrepreneur entered my mind but now the excitement isn’t the same. It’s still a backup plan though. I applied for a job that isn’t in my field but it seems that won’t happen either. It seems destiny is denying me to become anything. It gives and takes it away straight away.

One proof of my excitement being short-lived is writing this blog post. When I started writing it about 2 hours ago, I had full of ideas but now I don’t know what to write. All of that excitement is gone and it will stop right here.
