Is it ironic to spend time making a whole blog post about all of the things that are distracting me from the things I have to do?
Or is it just stupid?
Well either way I don’t exactly have a lot to talk about until Legendary Eirika drops in Fire Emblem Heroes tomorrow so this is what you’re stuck with. By the way, I know nobody cares but I’m very excited to see her get some more love so prepare for that.
For now, however, that entire train of thought just serves as yet another distraction mucking up my productivity tonight.
Normally I work pretty well with some distractions going off in the background. Some music, a YouTube video, a group chat, whatever it may be. Unless I get really invested in the content, audio tends to help me focus more often than not.
But right now every little possible activity and thought is getting in the way of the one thing I actually need to do: Reading another article for my Evolution and Creation class tomorrow.
Some of those things are the general senses of dread and/or inspiration in the back of my mind. Including, but not limited to:
- That exam I have next week.
- Remembering a study date(?) I have for that exam before next week.
- All of the work I’ve done running around to schedule my classes for next semester.
- That armor set I want to build in Monster Hunter.
- The fact that Shantae Half-Genie Hero is still on sale but I haven’t bought it yet.
- An interesting idea I have for my novel where I might try to incorporate mirror reflection bs into the reveal of a character actually being a dragon? But that’s a whole other story.
So on and so forth.
As you can tell the ideas are fairly eclectic, but they’re also competing for space alongside other things like making sure dinner came out okay after Mom left it halfway through the process. Or catching up on a YouTube series.
Oh and let’s not forget about that nagging feeling in the back of my head that I should allocate some time to go to the gym tonight. Except it’s already close to 8:30 p.m. and I don’t know that I want to go to the gym this late, especially when I still have some homework to finish by tomorrow.
Also, if I went to the gym it would push off my window to write a blog post for the day further, and I’d really rather not avoid that if I can choose not to. Even if that means the idea I’m writing about might be hackneyed and silly.
But what hackneyed and silly blog post idea should I write about? I don’t know, how about I scroll through Twitter a little while I mull it over.
Sorry, what was that? I’ve been on Twitter for 15 minutes? How is that possible I don’t even enjoy that service that much, where did the time go?
In case it wasn’t obvious, yes, that tirade evolved into me actually just describing the process of how I came about this blog post idea stream-of-consciousness style.
Because obviously here I am writing instead of going to the gym or working on this homework assignment.
Yet even this distraction has distractions. Like my dad coming home, meaning I had to put my phone down to go move my car and let him in. Which then turned into sitting back and watching Bill Maher, as we are now.
So by virtue of T.V. time with dad and the fact that it’s 8:30 p.m., I might just skip the gym entirely until tomorrow.
I’ll just finish writing this and jump onto my assignment, try to focus on that hardcore.
With potential Monster Hunter time after. But that won’t be so much of a priority that it keeps me pulled away from my work more.
All that being said, I hope you enjoyed this distraction from a distraction that’s allowed me to realize what distraction I should move onto next. If it was a good distraction for you too, please feel free to let me know.
I’d like to believe I’m performing some sort of service with my hackneyed musings.
(Also be sure to come back tomorrow when I distract everyone further with more Fire Emblem stuff, okay? Okay. Cool.)
