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.

Answering the phone is the most terrible thing I know. If it’s someone I know, it’s different. I don’t answer unknown numbers because who would call anyway. Only frauds and telemarketing people. But this time I should have. Someone from work tried to get in touch about when work would continue. So I didn’t know it would start this Monday. So whoops. I went on Tuesday. All that matters is that I did go and now I’m back at work. Tomorrow it’s Friday so the week has gone fast. I’m soon getting hang of work again. It’s also nice to see my colleagues again. Without them, work wouldn’t be fun. It’s not something I want to continue with but it’s nice to say, I’m going to work. At least I have a job so I don’t need to be afraid about becoming homeless.

In Finland, you don’t get homeless unless you have some mental issues or an addiction. Or something worse. In a way, I’ve been lucky to have a home and I can afford to buy food. My parents have also been there to help when I needed it. Not everyone has that. But I can’t carry other people’s problems on my shoulders. I have an umbrella to cover myself from things I can’t do anything about but I can sympathise. It really is a shame some have to suffer no matter how they try to change things. Sometimes you just feel helpless because you can’t help other people all by yourself. If people would be less greedy, then things could be better. People with more money than you do should make more effort but politics complicates things which is the reason why I hate it.

So it was back to work and holiday over. There is no time to keep up at night because I have to wake up early in the morning. The weekend doesn’t come soon enough. It’s easy to get lazy when you don’t have a job to go to. When you do naps after work is boss. On Saturday I’m gonna sleep until the afternoon so I have the strength to go back after the weekend.
